If this is 19 dollars, how much is the iPad version? I'm almost starting to feel like I got a bargain with FFT iPad

My question: How much space is needed to download this? If the impressions are good, I'm going to try and make room.

Hopefully... HOPEFULLY someone can answer this later. the final Fantasy 13-2 reviews have me wanting this pretty badly.

Is Chaos Rings II a sequel to Chaos Rings, while Chaos Rings Omega was a prequel? Or am I mixing up the order somewhere?

Yes, I just checked, my fault, sorry. I confused it with other S/E titles.
Well, we'll see when the first impressions are rolling in.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Why this? Sorry, didn't read the reviews.

It's supposed to be a sequel. And, yeah, Omega was the prequel.

WOWSER! This looks gorgeous. Been waiting for this for ages and ages. Must-buy. Chaos Rings II, DoDonPachi Resurrection HD and Kung-Fu Rabbit are the day's standout titles for me.

[Edit]: Damn, forgot about Super Lemonade Factory and MotoHeroz. That makes five new additions so far...

That's about right. More important, Chaos RingsOmega was essentially the same game (and the same engine) as CR, while CR2 seems to have improved graphics and gameplay.

Square Enix is stepping out of their linear (overly repetitious) comfort zone, it seems. FF 13-2 seems to have what I've been waiting for from SE. TBH, I was starting to get bored. And the storylines weren't a huge selling point, especially if you compare them to the interactive WRPGs.

This quote from Joystiq sums up how I feel/felt.

There was once a time when "Final Fantasy" meant greatness, when seeing Square's brand on a game box meant you were about to play something special. That time has long since passed. In today's gaming landscape, Final Fantasy is more punchline than powerhouse, more quantity than quality.
The game doesn't appear to super open, but it's more open. That's enough for me.
