What are the best games out now? (For all the new iPhone owners tom).

I'll be one of the many people who was convinced by the iPhone 3GS, by having borrowed and used my bro's iphone for a while now, and my being out of contract, to finally get the iPhone.

But I'm over an year behind in the app store.

So what are the absolute most polished, highest quality games out on the iPhone (the cheaper the better).

Are there any great games that are currently on sale right now and that I should thus pick up ASAP?

I'm particularly interested in simulation and strategy games.

Thank you for your help in advance.

Don't forget Defender Chronicles! Alot of strategy involved in this Tower Defense game.

Awesome guys. Thank you. Keep the suggestions coming.

I remember when I was browsing this forum a week earlier when I first preordered the phone, I ran into two Advance War type games that look AMAZING.

Mecha Wars AND Rogue Planet. I'm surprised neither game was mentioned. Were they not great games or something? They looked amazing.

I'm looking at stuff like that.

Also surprised that no one recommended Sim City, Spore or Oregan Trail. Are those not good games or something? Like I said, I really love strategy games so I was kind of interested in those too

I heard Oregon Trail was bad, Spore was just plain bad and I can't say much about Sim City. Rogue Planet's not released yet and Mecho wars is pretty good. You might want to try Uniwars, it's a pretty good strategy game, similar to advance war.
