The games are fun, but they are all word-level activities, and out of context. It can be used as a review of vocabulary covered in the previous lessons.

This site provides a good way to learn vocabulary in an unthreatening and competitive way. On the other hand, the amount of language students produce while engaging in this type of exercise is somewhat limited. I usually recommend it to students who have problems with vocabulary retention, or just as an exercise which helps them move the newly acquired vocabulary into long term memory.
