Conclusion: The options are limited when it comes to RTS games on the Xbox. If you're really interested in that genre of gaming, Goblin Commander is a must. Goblin Commander wont appeal to every gamer only because of personal taste and not horrible gameplay. This is one of the surprise hits of 2003, and I was amazed when it surpassed my expectations. Goblin Commander is a good product and Jaleco did a great job in accomplishing a fun experience where others have failed.
Conclusion: Goblin Commander is a solid attempt at bringing the light of real-time strategy to the darkness that is the Xbox, but it fails to reach the lofty heights you'd expect. The strategy is basic at best, while the audio-visual presentation is tepid and uninspired. Still, there's some fun to be had controlling your Goblin hordes for awhile, but unless you're really desperate for an RTS, there's not a whole lot to recommend here.
Pros: good controls, decent campaign
Cons: very little strategy needed: just rush, sub-par graphics and audio, hopeless multiplayer mode
Conclusion: Intuitive Steuerung, sympathische Monster, actionreiches Gameplay - Goblin Commander ist ein gelungenes Echtzeitstrategiespiel, auch wenn es in Sachen Komplexität noch etwas dazulernen könnte.
