Though Marvel G400 TV is provided with complete games (Tonic trouble & Wild Metal Country) we didn't like them at all but it's a taste question! We have tried out a large number of applications and 2D/3D games on the Marvel G400 TV with some very good results across the board. 

We didn't run benchmarks on this board as they'll be fade comparing to the results we can obtain with new kick ass 3d boards like GeForce 2 or Voodoo 5500. However for a multimedia use the 3D performance of the Marvel G400 TV as sufficient enough and will even fit the needs of serious gamers. The only bad point is that it comes with only 16Mb of SDRAM. It seems few when you know that new Voodoo 5500 boards come with 64 DDR Ram! Here is a list of games that we have tested with the G400 to see if they work and I have also compared the performance of each game to my previous graphics cards.
