First time I'm playing the first of the Gobliiins series I'm still in elementary school. And it's so much fun back there.
Years later I bought this game from GMG and I found this game is still really awesome even in its old school graphic. So much fun. Awesome.

Goblins 3 was one of my first adventure games and while it wasn't in the same league as the old Lucasarts titles it was still a blast. This pack contains all three the Gobliiins titles and is great value for money if you enjoy a good head scratching adventure game. They are very dated by today's standards but the gameplay is still solid and the humor will have you laughing out loud on more than one occasion.

Compared to games like duke nukem when this was released, it's hard to say that this was overlooked. First of all, this is a trilogy. So really, it's a 3 in 1 pack. A great deal for only like 5 bucks. Visuals are great reminders of the old days and they're not too shabby too considering the date they were released in. Soundtrack is pretty fun to listen to. It's a good filler for those puzzles. But sometimes it becomes repeating and boy..does doing puzzles take a long time. As in all puzzle games..some are easy and some are outright hard. you might even need to resort to the internet for answers. Good buy! 3 for 1.

Gobliiins games may not be as popular as many of the other 90's adventure series, but they are still prime examples of an adventure game's golden era.
All games in the trilogy offer a very pleasing visual experience despite their age (maybe except for the interface), distinct characters and a large dose of humor. It is this "tongue-in-cheek" attitude that makes them truly memorable and offsets the annoyances I will mention in a moment.
What you have to remember about Gobliiins games is that they're quite difficult and sometimes require the player to use a unique brand of logic to solve the presented challenges. Add to that the possibility of losing if you fail too many times (in the first game) or the need to synchronize the actions of more than one player character (in the second) and the experience may become irritating for a casual gamer.
On the other hand the riddles, while far from simple or straightforward, are often very rewarding to solve and then to be jokes themselves.
In short: those who like old-school adventure games will surely enjoy Gobliiins trilogy a lot. It does require some patience & it will often have you not knowing to do next, but it is rewarding and it is sure to make you laugh out loud at least one.
Also - for me the games work perfectly on a modern machine running Windows 7.
