    Those who own the oil will own the battlefield. Oil Rush is a real-time strategy title that has players moving their fleet of boats and planes to numerous sectors as they try to overrun enemies to achieve victory.

    Its slow pace, lack of complexity and lack of micro control options may not appeal to everyone, but if you’re looking for something that makes decent use of your brain while moving things gently along, Oil Rush: 3D Naval Strategy may be the thing for you.

    There are a few enjoyable moments, but Oil Rush doesn't manage to thread them together into an entertaining whole.

    As I’ve mentioned several times, Oil Rush is a gorgeous game. Combine this with established gameplay elements and there should have been a lot of love. However, it just felt like the various aspects of Oil Rush just didn’t mesh well together

    It's so hard to find a good serious game on mobile. This game is one of those. Surprisingly the game has intuitive controls for a strategy. Astonishing 3D graphics pushing capabilities of my iphone 5S to the limits! Very smooth and keen experience though some missions can be challenging. Really worths all the money because you'll get about 12 hours of gameplay and a bunch of a good soundtracks. I wish the game had a multiplayer mode, but I think it will come soon, cause a PC version has one.
    Must have for an rts fans.

    I was playing the game on my iPhone 5, it is amazing to see a real-time strategy well fit into a phone it is definitely a good example of PC port.

    In order to get the game, don't rush to the Quick game mode from the very beginning try campaign first (it contains learning missions). AI can be challenging on hard (it took me some effort to complete some missions from the first try), but is OK on normal difficulty.

    Pros: great 3D graphics, fun gameplay, pretty long campaign (about 10 hours), slick UI
    Cons: voice-over isn't that good sometimes; would love to see multiplayer as well

    Definitely worths $4.99.

    Impressive! Handy interface, cool graphics, and fun game play with various tactics.
    I have never seen strategy like this on iPad before.

    About disadvantages: sometimes I wanted to increase the time speed May be developers will add this feature one day :)
