    Robocalypse is said to be really good.

    Those are turn based.

    Robocalypse is the closest we've got to a proper RTS and is apparently great.
    Locks Quest is very good.
    Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings is good but more of a RPG.
    Command & Destroy is mediocre.
    Populous DS not the best port.
    Theme Park DS is pretty much the same as the PC version.
    Eco-Creatures: Save the Forest I liked but most didn't
    Worms: Open Warfare is bad
    Worms: Open Warfare 2 is good

    There are a few others but they're not worth mentioning.

    Robocalypse is simply awesome (though it does have some quirks you need to learn to get round, otherwise they'll drive you insane [​IMG] )

    And what about Settlers? That's an RTS. I haven't played it yet, is it any good? ('Cuz seeing as it's not on the list of "games worth mentioning"... does it really suck that bad?)

    The Settlers seems good at first, but lots of bad design flaws ruin it sadly.

    Robocalypse is a good RTS game...

    The only bad about it(for me) is the controls... units are hard to navigate...

    I really liked Eco-Creatures too, we should start a 2 man fanclub [​IMG]
    Robocalypse is the best RTS we currently have on the DS. Not perfect and the rally point ordering instead of direct command on units without the cowboy hero is a bit bad.
    Imo FFXII Revenant Wings is also among one of the best RTS out there, but it seems to be one of those 'love or love it less' kind of games for most.

    Err, it is technically. I do believe the person meant more of a Command & Conquer style RTS though.

    Command & Destroy is just about as close as you'll ever get to an actual C&C game on the ds platform. It just uses passwords which suck.

    It depends what you're looking for.
    Like everybody else said, Robocalypse is the purest RTS out there (on ds of course), but it isn't perfect.
    For tower defense, there's Lock's Quest (has alot of RTS elements), and Ninjatown, which is straight tower defense. There's also Final Fantasy RW which is a buttered down RTS.

    But yeah the DS isn't doing too bad, but it could be doing better.

    Robocalypse is pretty good but it can be a little off because of the childish story line and the very goofy characters. But all in all, it's a one good game.

    Lock's quest is a good kind of RTS. Not a boring, repetitive type but its hard to explain.. Is just good.. Different, but good.
