Console real time strategy games are few and far between but Jaleco Entertainment hopes to break that trend with Goblin Commander: Unleash the Horde, which has a couple of former Blizzard folks at the helm. HomeLAN recently received an Xbox beta build of the full game to try out for ourselves (it will also be released on the PS2 and Xbox).
Goblin Commanderís mix of action and RTS seems to be well designed and based on our playing a beta of the Xbox version we think it has a solid single player campaign, great looking graphics and a well handled controller interface. It may make some console players fans of the RTS format. Look for Jaleco to release all three versions of Goblin Commander to stores in mid-November.
