Gobliins 2? I love that game. It's difficult but not too difficult, I managed to work it out on my own. Plus it's the funniest of the trio for me. The loading times are not great though.

I have no fond memories of that when doing development for DOS. Put one wrong value in a register and boom... reboot needed. Good luck debugging a problem when the result is a hanging OS :/

It's a decent game but I'm not going to lie... the music and 2 player mode has a lot to do with that :) The gameplay itself I don't really experience as fluent. Good platformer for speedrunners.

I hate "walk up to the enemy and hope to get the first hit in" games.

Loved the film though, I have no idea why people keep calling it bad. It's zany and zany is always good.
