As the topic says... Are there any good 4x games, like the classic masters of orion/2 out there for iOS (specifically iPad)?

Civilization Revolution looks pretty good on the iPad, but it might not have the depth you're looking for. It's also a little steep @ $12.99, but might be worth it if you're a fan of the Civilization series. Don't get the iPhone version to play on the iPad though, it doesn't look anywhere near as nice.

I think Ascendancy is your best bet here. It's the only real 4x game for iOS that I can think of. It's actually a port of an older DOS game. I'm not sure what the quality of that specific version is like, but I loved the original back in the day. So much so that I've actually re-acquired an old disc of the game not too long ago. Good ole DOSBox. :)

What is a "4x game"?

But I feel your pain.. A full blown Civilization game, or maybe WOW, would be really nice..

eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate

Civ is an example, but i was thinking scifi (thus the MOO 2 reference).  Thanks for the suggestions; im utterly terrible at finding anything in the app store.

You're not alone there. Browsing the app store is practically impossible. Unless I know specifically what I'm looking for I have a terrible time finding stuff.
