  1. A solid game built by loving hands. Obviously, the developers, when deciding to port this title to the Xbox from the PC, took their time and studied what could be done to improve the gaming experience.
  2. One of the most original Xbox games I've played in a long time, not only because of the visionary graphics, but the clever intertwining of FPS action and RPG elements and more online modes than any two other games combined.
  3. A shooter which genuinely does stand out from the crowd with distinction ' not an easy accomplishment for a genre which is flooded with clones and has-beens.

    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.
