iPad RTS

Hey everyone!

I'll be picking up my iPad2 tomorrow morning and I'm raging for a good RTS. I played both Starfront and C&C on my iPhone but found both the screen too small to really like the games. Plus, C&C looked horrid on retina display. Since C&C got an iPad2 update and Starfront is available in HD, I wanted to know which one I should pick up?

Also, I'm up to date in the world of iPhone gaming but I don't know of any iPad exclusives, so if you have a favorite RTS, let me know!

Thanks!

I do favor Starfront, too. You should also look at "Land Air Sea Warfare". Another great RTS, along the lines of Total Annihillation.

Yep, those 2 are pretty much the only RTS worth playing that have an iPad version. Red Conquest is the best one on the iPhone, but there's no HD version. 2x mode on the iPad works really well with it though.
