    The very best RTS the App Store has to offer. Everything works well, the controls are tight, the story is surprisingly captivating, and the battles actually seem like battles, not chores.

    Although Starfront is nothing new in terms of gameplay, it's certainly the best RTS the iPhone has ever seen and takes the strategy genre to a new height.

    Starfront: Collision shows that RTS titles have a great potential future on iOS devices; it's not perfect, but it hits all the right marks for competitive online play and a fun campaign.

    Visually, Starfront is pretty stunning.

    StarFront: Collision may not be the most original production – let's face it, it apes StarCraft at every turn – but it does deliver a full-feature real-time strategy game for the iPhone. Right now, it has no equal.

    The best portable real-time strategy game ever made - even if most of the credit belongs to Blizzard not Gameloft.

    Starfront Collision is clearly a StarCraft clone, but considering its context this is a strong value. Copying Blizzard, Gameloft succeeded in creating the best classic RTS currently available for iOS systems in the App Store.

    Deep enough to appeal to hardcore RTS fans, but also approachable to newcomers.

    It's a well crafted strategy game, even if a little bit too inspired to Starcraft. If you like real time strategy, this is the choice for your smartphone.

    Sure, gameplay may not provide the most innovative or exciting experience, and the race design and units leave something to be desired, but it's the most solid RTS game I've played on my iPhone, and one that's actually fun to play online!

    It is a StarCraft clone but seeing as how StarCraft probably won't ever come to ios and there really isn't any other hardcore RTS games on ios this game is definitely worth checking out for any strategy fan. Full Review »
