  1. The chances of this game appealing to anyone other than hardcore TRON watchers or the odd PC geek who happens to think that Windows XP is the best game on home computer, are slim to say the least. Look elsewhere for your first-person thrills.
  2. The combination of uninspiring sound, graphic and game design all add up to a title that is best left sitting on a shelf as a message to the game's developer and publisher that gamers will not buy sub-par products.

    The art direction is spot-on as far as recreating the look of the movie and the music is good when it keeps to Wendy Carlos' themes from The art direction is spot-on as far as recreating the look of the movie and the music is good when it keeps to Wendy Carlos' themes from the film, but otherwise, I was genuinely dissappointed with this title. The game-play is so-so, the character system is gimmicky, the level design is linear like a bad mid-nineties title ( everything must be done in order or doors won't open, etc ), cutscenes cannot be skipped even though they rarely do much for immersion. Perhaps worst of all is that load-screens are both ubiquitous and never-ending. And since death comes swiftly and often, expect even more load-screens. In other words, forget about any feeling of narrative momentum. I wouldn't get this unless you have Buddha-level patience, feel like doing your taxes between levels, or are OCD about the Tron franchise. Full Review »

    This attempt to bring back a 20 year old movie into game form is just sad.
