Despite the lacking port, the game is one of the more enjoyable super-vintage titles to appear on XBLA and it's a testament to the core design that its fun hasn't dulled too dramatically in the past twenty-five years.
A minor distraction perhaps but classic is reserved for titles that carry fond memories and are still as satisfying to play as they ever were, and Discs of Tron just doesn’t fit that description at all.
It's a shame that a classic could be given such poor treatment with meager graphics, bad sound, and inaccurate controls. The one new element, the online multiplayer, runs poorly and is no fun to play. All-in-all, one of the worst XBLA ports to date.
Poor graphics, crippled controls, and a multiplayer option that feels like it’s been tacked on like an afterthought on a Post-It all add up to make this game one blast from the past that really should have stayed where it came from.
