Limbo is a puzzle game which hides the puzzle elements from you (Oh, is that a switch? I wish I'd known that 10 minutes ago), then makes you do the same thing over and over again because your timing wasn't perfect, even though you've already figured out the answer.
Splosion man is an incredibly shallow platformer where all you do is triple jump. Like Limbo, prepare to be ruthlessly punished for narrowly missing jumps, having your timing just a little off, and being surprised by obstacles from off-screen.
After these two, trials is just par for the course. Some developer said "Oh motorcross game would be sweet!" and went about making it without bothering to think through the design. So yeah, it's flat and boring.

In this combo pack you get Trials HD, Limbo and Splosion Man. Trials HD is pretty fun while it lasts although it is sort of easy to play through and is pretty short. Sort of like a dirt bike plat former where you have to make it through the obstacles and stunts without falling. There are many checkpoints that make this game very easy. The HD graphics make it fun to play though. Splosion man is a simple plat former with easy puzzles and boss battles. All you do is run around making yourself explode in order to get to a higher level, kill enemies or solve puzzles. It is the least game i liked of the 3 in this combo pack. Limbo is the one that i liked the most just because of the smooth gameplay and clever puzzles. The visuals are all but black and white and some grey. There is barely any music except the sound effects of things around you and sometimes a dramatic tone will play if you come across something of a surprise. You play as a nameless little boy trying to escape a dark and deadly nightmarish world. By itself i would give this game a 6 because it is short, and not really a good next gen console game, but could be more of a fun flash game on armorgames or something. The combo pack although is worth the rent.
