Overall great selection of games for a reasonable price, if you wait for a sale.

4/5 of the games on offer in this pack are amazing.
The only exception is The Cave, which is just okay. Kinda repetitive, half baked, and seems unfinished in parts. it's still more than playable, but it's not the reason to buy this pack.
The standouts are the rest of the pack.
Nights Into Dreams is one of my favorite games. This HD version is basically a port of a Japanese only PS2 version that was released several years ago. But it upscales quite well, and it's still incredibly fun, in a 'Sonic the Hedgehog but trippier' way. It's got a lot of charm to it, a great soundtrack, really responsive gameplay, and is just a lot of fun. I'd almost recommend this pack just for Nights.
Jet Set Radio is also a very outstanding game. It was one of the first games to use cel shading for the bulk of it's graphics, and I still think it's one of the few games that's actually pulled it off well. It's an utterly fantastic game to play through. Except I did experience an odd crash or two. And the controls are looser than I remember. Regardless, it's a great game with a great story, great levels, one of the best soundtracks in video game history, and some really fun and unique gameplay mechanics. Also, it's a fairly meaty game, with a lot of levels, and a lot of playtime.
Renegade Ops is a generic sounding name that's an absolute blast to play in multiplayer. The basics of the game are from a top down prospective in a jeep, and it's your basic run and gun type gameplay done extremely well. The graphics are fairly simple, but they look good, and they do their job. Where this game excels is in the multiplayer gameplay. It's just a lot of fun to go blasting around in story missions with a co-op pal to tear things up with. It's simple, but I really enjoyed it.
Lastly, you have Hell Yeah. This game is a bit of a dark horse, as it didn't sell too well at launch. But it's a great platformer with a really fun story and aesthetic to it. I think part of the reason why this game didn't do so well as they tried to sell it as a Metroidvania type platformer, when it's really just a linear platformer, where you can go back to older areas if you want to, but there's really no reason to. Gameplay progression will take you on a linear path anyways. It's got a great art style, and punk feel to the characters and story. It controls well, and even has little God of War-esque quick time event fatality minigames to play to kill off the many miniboss characters. I recommend this game to any platformer fans.
Overall, this is a great pack to snag when it's on sale. I don't remember how much I bought it for, but it was under $10. Which is an amazing price for all of these games.
