More often than not, mobile gaming isn?t being taken seriously by some ?gamers? because of the lack of variety of games, particularly with long and immersive RPG games. Yes, there are lots of MMORPG games on the mobile, but they can only offer so much, that it won?t even take any gamer looking for some AAA action, 5 hours, before they uninstall these games because of their lack of content and repetitive nature. This is not to say that there are no ?REAL? rpg games on the mobile. Actually, there lots of hidden gems in the mobile category, and you?ll just have to look for them carefully.
We?ve listed some of the must-gets RPG on the mobile. Any RPG gamer should at least see them or give them a shot.
Final Fantasy V For Android and iOS
Although a bit pricey for a mobile game, the HD re-imagining of the popular Final Fantasy V is a must have for fans of Final Fantasy series. It is also a great game on its own right, so newcomers don?t have to play the previous titles or even the original one. This game introduces the ATB (Active Time Battle) system and a well-crafted Job system for further customizing your characters that fit to your play style.
Ravensword: Shadowlands (Android and iOS)
The best way to describe this game is, it is strikingly similar with an Elder Scrolls game, particularly the recent ones like Oblivion and Skyrim. It is an open-world RPG game with rich 3D graphics and with hundreds of quests and stuff to do.
The World Ends With You (iPad)
The World Ends With You: Solo Remix is a solid port of the original Nintendo DS game. It features a very unique art-style reminiscent to that of Kingdom Hearts. The gameplay is also very unique and the soundtrack is twice as great. The only bad thing about the game is its high price tag, but if you?ve got some money to spare, this is definitely worth checking out.
Oceanhorn is a game like Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker in almost all aspects. Nintendo has no plans on porting a Legend of Zelda game on the mobile platforms. Fortunately, the idea of Oceanhorn came to mind. Oceanhorn is like an honest-to-goodness homage to Nintendo DS?s Wind Waker title, from the seafaring, cartoony graphics, kicking of chickens, epic adventure, and of course, breaking of jars and vases.
There is still a lot of great RPG games on the mobile platform like Chaos Rings series, Final Fantasy 3 and 4, Eternal Legacy, Zenonia series, etc. Mobile gaming?s future looks brighter with better devices coming out these days. You might expect some REAL console quality rpg games in the longshot.
