If you don't have Inotia 2, then you should get it.

Most likely you have Dungeon Hunter since that's the best one I can think of, Zenonia is great, but you probably have that, and Underworlds is a ton of fun. Elven Chronicles is also a fun turn based RPG, and for one that doesn't involve exploration, but is all conversation and a great battle system, go for TNA. It's one of the finest RPG's on the platform.

Inotia 2 and Zenonia are the only RPGs that have any replay value. Undercroft is more complex but still playable if you like things that way. This excludes all the turn-based RPGs of course. There are more quality turn-based RPGs than regular RPGs.

I'll take Ragnarok over the kiddie noob-fest that is Runescape. I'm sure it's a technical marvel, but the players are idiots.

Um, excuse me... turn-based RPGs ARE regular RPGs... are you seriously saying Action RPGs are the only true RPG? Turnbased RPGs came FIRST and they are still the ones i prefer..

Maybe they mean strategy RPGs? I didn't really get it either, to be honest.

Anyway, I would recommend the newly released Inotia 2 (Wanderer of Luone), Zenonia, and Dungeon Hunter (a bit short though). Those take up the majority of my iPhone gaming time.

I actually tried TNA lite, marvelled that there was a wrestling RPG, and it was very interesting. If you like wrestling, it's loads of fun. However, while it's fun in respect to wrestling fans, I don't see it being all that great for others.

For example, I felt like the strategy was a bit limited. While there is strategy, I felt like doing different moves on the other wrestler was more for mixing things up rather than one set of moves actually being any better than other other. Correct me if I'm wrong on that. So I ended up doing the same moves over and over which killed the gameplay for me. However, the game is very fun when it comes to the dialogue and seeing actual wrestlers from the "sport".

I liked Underworlds a lot because of the customization of the party and the variety of talents to sink points into. It also played smoothly and the controls for the most part worked well. The downside I guess would be that the graphics are nothing to write home about. I didn't mind since I prefer gameplay over visuals any day.

I'm playing Dungeon Hunter right now. I'm a mage and the game is visually great but I have a few gripes. I wish the spells for the mage were a bit more exciting. As it is, and I'm only level 13, it seems like you have the choice between single target spells for each element and one slowing spell. True, you can also cast a dummy and a buddy to fight with you, but everything is just damage. No stunning, no freezing, no chaining, mostly no multi-hit (but the fairies do that anyways). I'd say it's got just enough in gameplay, as far as I've played so far, to make it fun but doesn't try to go further. Other than those gripes, everything else is great: story and characters are intriguing, moving between areas is exceptionally well done, visuals are stunning although I wish you could zoom in or out, and there's plenty of equipment drops. The game is a bit on the easy side so far though.

I liked Zenonia because of the extensive talent tree and the equipment drops. Other than that, I didn't find it toooo exciting.

Chronicles of Inotia, the first one, was useless for me. I won't go further. I am excited about getting this second one though.

Underworld was fun when I got it when it first came out. I haven't played it since they've updated it but I plan to. It's strange that I would think Dungeon Hunter is lacking when Underworld didn't have close to the amount of talents DH has. The difference I guess is that Underworld was 0.99 and DH is not. I guess I can't have it all.

And I agree that "regular RPG", to me, no way refers to only action rpgs. I think of Zelda and other action RPGs as lite versions of role playing games. They're like Mario with a slight RPG element to them. Final Fantasy defines an RPG to me.
