I recommend that you try running the games through wine first, because LGP seems to like overpricing ancient games (ones I haven't even heard of). They want to sell them at the original price 10 years ago ... today you can find them in the discount bin for $1, maybe $2. Try them through wine first.
The games are the same on Window$ as they are on Linux, they are either run through wine or are ported, like what LGP does. There is no difference between the game played on Linux or Window$, except for maybe a few wine bugs here and there. So any review of the game will work. I usually look up games on ign, and read the reviews themselves not the score. Look for bad reviews and see what they complain about, verify the claims, if true, can you deal with it, if not, don't buy the game (that's my strategy).
