Excerpt: The older generation amongst gamers will no doubt remember the movie TRON. In an age where computers and games were hardly a part of our daily life it gave a view on the future of PC’s and how we would experience things. Well, one thing is for sure; Disney sure screwed us over.
Summary: Bridging the gap between the first TRON film and its big-budget sequel, TRON: Evolution takes the form of a third-person action game. Its action picks up a while after the events of the 1982 classic film that started it all, slotting in not too long before its sequel picks up.
Excerpt: Tron: Evolution is Prince of Persia but more neon. There are neon frisbees, neon bikes, neon tanks, neon suits, neon baddies, neon skyscrapers and neon laser beams. Sadly, all this glowing gas can't make up for some sloppy controls, repetitive combat and a limited multiplayer mode.

Excerpt: Every so often in a reviewer’s life there are those games that are a chore to play. Your PS3 no longer seems inviting because you know what boring Blu-ray disc awaits you in its tray. Tron: Evolution is unfortunately one of those titles.
Conclusion: TRON: Evolution truly only bares the name of TRON due to its multiplayer counterpart. While the single-player experience is indeed set within the world of the Grid, nothing about screams TRON!
