picking an rts

ok so i'm having trouble deciding on an rts and i hated roboapocalypse, and so i was thinking about something different just name an rts that you think would be good, if you have to base it of something i really like the focus of age of empires for the pc and how that is played alright thanks

Warfare incorporated
-closest thing to the traditional rts, includes everything except for unit grouping and attack moving. Comes with an excellent multiplayer engine also. Rated strategy game of the year in 2008.

+1

there are constantly people online to play with, you can adjust speeds. If you want to wait you can wait for Red Conquest which seems to be a really good RTS made epecially for the iDevice. ,.

Quantum Collapse is a great game too although its slower and takes longer to load, the missions are great. The controls are very well done, you can do groups and control individual units very well. It is not the best but I've enjoyed my time with it. There are also 11 skirmish maps and you can adjust the difficulty and the style of enemy A.I. There is currently bluetooth multiplayer and 3g/wifi global is promised but unfortunately doesnt look to come any time soon.

currently dont like Robocalypse as much and didnt play it due to lack of auto-save. Now with the new update I think I'll be playing it a lot more

Command and Conquer promised to be really good but there are a lot of people saying that its glitchy so I'm waitin gon online play+sale on that at the moment.


VERIDICT: Get Warfare Inc. and wait for Red Conquest. Warfare Inc. has tons of single player missions and a strong online community. If you're looking into more control of units and a good variety of skirmish and single player missions get Quantum Collapse although be warned its slower paced

Red Alert. Its $11. But it's worth it and it has online and bluetooth coming. Like Warfare but with double the units and strategy involved.

Hi there!
