Not just a Movie-Based Game!
This isn't just another game based on a movie. Heck, this takes place during a time BEFORE the movie does. A Prequel, to sum it up. So in a way, it'll help you understand a few details to the movie better.
The graphics were amazing. The circuit-like cities and terrains all seemed so high tech to me, perfect for the Tron series. Game play was a little sketchy at first, but really awesome once you get the hang of it. The campaign was harder than I thought it would be, even for the Normal difficulty setting. Great soundtrack, with a little bit of the Daft Punk music we all love in the upcoming movie.
It's a great buy for anyone whose a fan of Tron. I personally never even watched the first Tron movie until I played this game.
The game's story itself was not bad. But it left me feeling unsatisfied. I suspect when the Tron Legacy movie comes out, it'll feel like a true ending to the game.
I got this game for $15. I couldn't imagine paying 60$ or even 40$. If your A Tron fan, you will like the first fifteen minutes. If your not, keep looking for another game. The graphics are good and fall inline with the movie. That's the best thing about this game. The controls are glitchy. Fights are easy, but difficult to control. You spend the majority of the game climbing walls jumping over objects, climbing walls, climbing walls.....Did I mention you do a lot of climbing walls!!!! The camera view of your character makes it very difficult to get into this game. I found myself on so many WALLS...(climbing walls)....with no view of where to go next. You have to guess where to jump. I died more from wall jumps than I did from fights.
This game gets old very quickly. There is less strategy and more button mashing. Like I said I got it for $15. At that price its ok, but once it hits the $9.99 rack then I will say its worth what you pay for it. Until then, borrow it, rent it....but I wouldn't recommend getting it as a keeper.
Pretty good considering.....
Considering that is is a movie game it's not bad at all. The graphics were good but then again everything in the Tron world has glowing lines and doesn't require much detail. The game is different in it is 50% running walls, climbing, riding the light cycle, and getting where you need to go. And 50% fighting with your light disc/tanks. You spend a lot of time climbing and finding ways into places you need to be. That is fine as long as you don't buy the game thinking it is full on action from start to finish. I only had one knock on the game and it was the controls. Sure it's fun to run across walls and jump and climb but you can't make any mistakes. One wrong jump or if you aren't facing exactly the right direction you fall to your death. No matter the difficulty level you will fall and die repeatedly when playing this game. There is one spot where you have to jump, run up the wall, and grab a protruding square. If you are not facing exactly straight ahead and lined up with the square above you on the all you will miss it and fall. There were a few places I died many many times just trying to get where I needed to go. That can be frustrating. Some may not like the story but as a casual gamer I don't worry too much about that. I say if you like the original Tron and plan to see the new one then give the game a try. Or try it if you just want something new to play. The game was pretty challenging and fun to play.
Not as bad as the reviews...
at least in my opinion...sure you die quite alot traversing all the areas but really, it didn't incite controller throwing rage fits like some other games I have played...the story is a bit muddled, but the game itself was quite fun...solo campaign was enjoyable and multiplayer is a nice change of pace from all the shooters...
Great Movie Spin-off and Great Gane
This game was amazing visualy and stuck to the story of Tron Legacy, without felling like an alternate version of the movie. Also the gameplay was fun it was similar to God of War style but not as clean. It did have it's downsides though like being repetative in gameplay and a little too easy. Also the ending wasn't great but not the worst. Overall I would recomend this game.
This game had good graphicis. It can make you frusrated. But was good. But it is not that long.I like it and it was awasome.
I just got this game today (black friday, buy 2 get 1 free) and I have to admit, it looks good. Although the controls are hard to grasp at first once you get the hang of it the game becomes a new experience. Honestly, I think the best part of this game is the free running on buildings, scaling eight foot walls and pretty much exagerating every jump off of the park bench. In summary I think that anyone who buys this game can say that riding a light bike is everything we've wanted. If you ever have the chance to get this game, free or otherwise, I suggest you get it.
Tron is a okay game that needs lots of improvement
Tron needs a lot of improvement. To the average kid gamer, it might seem like the best game ever, but to the aged gamer, it was a good movie turned into a horrible game. The only good thing about this game was the level design. The storyline was a little sketchy and the multiplayer was an epic fail. The Xbox Live experience was ruined with this game.
Pretty Good for a Movie Game
Tron single player is pretty good for a movie game. The combat is fluid, the tank battles are pretty good, and the light cycles are sweet. I haven't tried the multi-player et but I bet that is where this game will excell. You build experience and can use that in the single player as well as online. I would recommend this game if you're a fan of tron or sci-fi games. Good game overall.
Could go either way.
This is a type of game that makes you think: Should I buy or pass? The reason for it is because this game has aspects that are good and bad. First, remember this game was made by Disney so it has to be more on the kid friendly side. Second, the overall gameplay seems like it could have been made better. My guess for this is because it is based off a movie which means developers want to make the game fast so they can release the game around the time the move its based on or around comes out. However, this game as cool aspects like the light cycle and a multiplayer that offers a good amount. Combat is alright but may get repetitive. Overall, I think you should give this game a try but it may feel to childish to some.
