    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 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.

    Visually, Starfront is pretty stunning.

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