Best RTS games?

Or any kind of strategy really, RTS, TBS etc. I was about to get Rise of Lost Empires but heard bad things about it.

Quantum Collapse is far and away the best RTS game on the iphone, bar none.

It's not even a competition, the depth of the gameplay and strategy involved is incredible. The method to make groups and to select groups is brilliant. The skirmish mode is awesome and it's next update is including multiplayer over the internet. You just have to take a tiny bit of time to learn the gameplay. But once you do, it's addictive and so much fun.

Other than that, Warfare Inc. is really very good.

And while these other two are not RTS games, Lux Touch and Galcon are simple but great world/universe conquest strategy games.

Quantum Collapse is the only proper RTS out, that's why it has no competition. If more proper RTS comes out I'm sure it wouldn't appeal that much. Personally I took a look at the screens and videos and it does not appeal to me at all, the interface is beyond horrible, so are the graphics. That's saying something as I love RTS games.

Siding with the rest of everyone, I have to agree. Just go buy Quantum Collapse now and you will be happy for hours and hours to come.

Quantum Collapse...hands down.

Rise of Lost Empires is RTS lite at best.
