  1. Discs of Tron is a prettied-up port of an '80s arcade game that's barely even recommendable to die-hard Tron fans.
  2. An interesting blast from the past, but much like the visuals of the original film, it really doesn’t hold up over time.
  3. 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.
  4. Xbox World 360 Magazine UK
    Thoroughly unambitious. [June 2008, p.96]
  5. An utterly useless waste of 800 Microsoft Points.
  6. 30
    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.
  7. 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.
  8. The game is 800 Microsoft points, and it is really something that they should just give away. Bad graphics, controls, sound and multiplayer means a bad game and it should not have been.

    Without even a two-player mode, this won't last you ten minutes. [Aug 2007, p.103]
