It generally works great.. It tries a little too hard to act as a controller, though, rather than letting the touchscreen be a mouse, and it attempts to outsmart the user by changing what input schemes are available based on what it thinks is happening, instead of letting the user control it. There's also an unfortunate tendency for windows update notifications to steal focus from the game at inconvenient times, but not to the point where one can actually dismiss them. Partly Microsoft's fault.

Really neat how you can use your phone to play games on your PC essentially like a remote desktop app, but I gotta say it's kinda dumb that you have to accept the connection *at the computer* in order to connect, when the whole reason for using the app is so you can access the PC when you're not at it. Kinda defeats the purpose of being a remote app.

Tried this years ago and it was a dumpster fire. Now I can play on the TV at home or on the tablet when traveling - performance is awesome. For best results: 1) Use a mainstream controller that gets lots of support (Xbox is ideal). 2) Ensure the games come from Steam and that they offer at least partial controller support (needed for touch too). 3) Go full hardwire if you can, but PC connected to router with a LAN cable is the minimum. If you compromise on these 3, your mileage will vary.
