Summary: Most of the gameplay in "Tron Evolution" is lifted wholesale from "Prince of Persia" (2008). The unfortunate thing is, Tron does not bring over the level of design care, camera tuning, and general polish which PoP 2008 enjoyed. There is also a subtle but important difference in how player-failure is handled, between PoP's "rescued in time by Elika" presentation and Tron's "De-Rez/Re-Install" presentation.
Summary: Honestly, I expected a lot more. Game looked so epic, I could hardly wait while it was delivered. Not the case, its gameplay could definitely use improvement. Multiplayer wasn't too exciting, either. If you're an action kind of gamer, there are definitely better titles out there. Really, the light cycle is the only cool thing I like, even though they handle like normal cycles. (What happened to 90 degree turns ONLY?
Summary: Graphics are nice. Even the gameplay could've been enjoyable, if it weren't for the frustration with the controls, and the sensitivity. There are various things that will happen depending on what buttons you press when pressing other buttons. Running up walls, climbing, or leaping off them in the opposite direction, all are done nearly the same way. And just having the stick register slightly off dead center can sometimes give you the most horrible results.
Summary: As a Kid growing up on the original tron and almost memorizing the movie word for word, I was extatic when i hear the legacy was coming out. I was even more happy to have the oppurtunity to be in the grid with tron evolution. I read the reviews and thought it disapointing that so many other tron fans did not like it. I should have listened to them. It fun for the first hour but after that, it gets old and repetative.
Summary: Finished the story mode of the game. Did not collect the all shards. Not sure how parts of the game ties in with the movie. Might need to collect the shards and listen to the audio files. Online play seems like a after thought and not balanced, melee part of it. Graphics are ok.
Summary: I told my father about the horrid review this game got, but he forgot and he got me the game for Christmas. At first I watched as he tried to play the game and work the camera himself but after multiple deaths and annoying DOS screen that appears after every failure, i asked him to pass the controller. I thought "I'm ok at video games. I'll do better." Not really. I didn't die as much but be warned that the camera is like trying to control Cujo.
Avoid the Collector's Edition...There's Nothing to Collect!

Summary: First of all, the game is fine. It's a decent game that's fun to play, so if you are interested in getting the game, I recommend getting it by itself. The collector's edition comes with a lightcycle replica with a stand and a dome cover. The stand has a built-in drawer for the game to be stored.
Summary: Disney and Sideshow Collectibles should be embarassed. The lightcycle model is a cheap piece of junk! Sideshow makes great models, statues, etc. USUALLY, this is NOT one of them. Additionally, the model has an obvious mold or paint defect and the slide out tray is cracked. The game itself may be better, but with the mediocre reviews, why bother. So maybe give the game a chance if you can get a good price on it, like not full price.
Summary: The only way you would subject yourself to this game would be because you are a TRON fan and to you just immersing yourself in the TRON "universe" is inordinately motivating.. There is simply no other reason to slog through these dull and twitchy game segments set amidst the greater chore - the parkour navigate the landscape game that strings the other games together. I do happen to be a TRON film who saw the originals in theaters so I want to say something nice... Well.
