A great collection of many games such as;
Aether: Interesting, but repetitive
Spewer: A platformer with a twist, propel yourself with vomit. Great
Coil: Disturbing game about ♥♥♥♥ and demon fetuses and children...? I question Edmund McMillen's sanity
Triachnid: Fun but buggy game where you control a 'thing' to get to the end of each level
AVGM: Click 18,000,000 times. Have fun
Time F**k: A platformer with interesting twists
Grey Matter: Classic arcade game about matching kill combos etc.
Meat Boy: The Super Meat Boy prototype made in Flash

INTRODUCTION
First of all I want to say that I am a big fan of Edmund McMillen and his work. The games in The Basement Collection are pretty interesting and they are worth a look, even when most of them are free, but it's obvious that buying this collection is meant to support McMillen a bit.

PRO
The bonus content is really nice, especially for fans. I really enjoyed it. The Basement Collection is a good idea for people who did not play or know the flash games McMillen started with. They are true classics, which made him famous. You should have played them at least once. There is many content to unlock by finishing the games, which can be either fun or...

CONTRA
...really annoying. The games are programmed in flash and you can guess it: they are pretty laggy. Many of the games are platformers and you have to jump precisely. Due to lags and bad controls your game experience can be quiet frustrating. Not to mention that the games can't motivate you enough to actually finish them with those lags and controls.

CONCLUSION
I have very mixed feelings about The Basement Collection. With the bad controls and the lags it's nearly unplayable and annoying. If you are interested in the bonus content, supporting McMillen and/or just want to test the games, it's worth the $3.99. If you expect many hours of fun and games that last longer than a few hours you will waste your money. The Basement Collection can be fun for a day or can frustrate you for a day. Then it will gather dust... in your basement.
