    kk so atm we have really bad RTS games for the DS i think that anyone would agree the ds is almost a perfect match for rts and why WHY havent there been any good rts games yet!?!? there are turn based strategy games those are great but i want more action! So rts would be great eh? i really think that since blizzard likes to make money (e.g WoW hehehe 20$ a month x 9million people O_O) they should REALLY make Warcraft ds and star craft ds also include wi-fi and make it free online no pay per month bs... so who else agrees?

    I completely disagree. The DS screen is too small for good RTS action.

    well i mean they can at least do better than heroes of mana Haahaha but i mean if the camera wasnt so close to the battle field it would work a hella lot better too.. i think if the games where better quality and not rushed for a quick buck than theyd be waaay more worth it to play.

    maybe if it was designed right it would work like you can hide all menus with X
    or Y and use the click and drag idea to select multiple units you also have building technology etc.. the online play could consist of servers rather than the god-awful friend code system and you could make custom maps and levels
    plus they could have a gameguard sorta thing so that if your using hacks there detected and your banned for 48 hours that'd be great... i dont know how anyone could pass up star craft or warcraft for DS [​IMG]

    Yeah, you know, I used to really wish for a Warcraft DS, but now that I'm seeing just how things turn out on the DS with this genre, I'm not wishing for it anymore. I think you're right. I think the screen(s) is the problem. Heroes of Mana probably comes as close to practically dealing with that issue as any game yet has, but it's still not an entirely fun process.

    See, with Warcraft you've got that mini map in the lower left section of the screen, and can easily direct units. On the DS, the best that can be afforded is switching the top & bottom screens to direct units on a map. It's too time consuming for an RTS. I think that's why Square Enix purposely made the units in Heroes move as slow as they do. But -- like I said -- it's still not entirely enjoyable.

    If Blizzard made an RTS for the DS, they would charge monthly fees.

    Trust me, they will find a way.

    (Flame wars start now yes?)

    Making completely baseless predictions like that is pointless. Any game could be legendary if 'designed right'.

    First off the Japanese suck at RTS games! Japan is full of gay RPG fan-boys so that’s what the manufactures make. In order to have a good RTS a European or American company will have to make it. There are many great RTS games for the PPC & Palm, Warfare Incorporated was an excellent RTS & the PDA’s only have one screen. If a good developer worked on a RTS for the DS it would Rock! Look how long the DS has been out & were just now seeing decent FPS like BIA & the soon COD.
