    Living the New in iPhone RPGs

    The text based iPhone MMO RPG genre has already hit all of its conventional bases and is now reaching out for themes that have not been covered. There are only so many ways that they can take the same mafia and racing themes, and now may be the first time in the history of this iPhone game genre will actually initiate competition in terms of originality. Epic Chef Wars takes the format set up by Epic Pet Wars and Epic Soldier Wars and takes it into another realm entirely. It takes most of the customizing features that people have come to expect with these games and takes them to new heights. At the same time the social networking aspects of Epic Chef Wars have been taken seriously and are being taken to new heights. This really marks Epic Chef Wars as a success among free iPhone games and pay ones alike.
