I just gave Crysis 2 a whirl figuring that'd be the harshest test of the service they had, and it worked out pretty well. Picture is grainy (it looked like I was playing Killzone 2), the input lag was very noticeable, but other than that... it worked without a hitch. Certain games (IE not shooters) would work perfectly fine under this system, and it's certainly a step above your average flash game.
