Not Worth Battling it out on These Grids

As I was playing the Wii version, Tron: Evolution Battle Grids, I felt like this was just a childish version of the PS3 or 360 game Tron: Legacy, and it doesn’t follow the movie at all.
And with that, almost all excitement I had about playing the game disappeared.
The Wii version is more of a party type game compilation where you compete with 3 other players in Tron based games.
Games like the Light Cycle arena mode, the Disc or Tank battle, the toss the glowing ball so your opponent can’t catch it.
However, 8 of the 15 available games are locked, and in order to unlock them, you will have to go through the Story Mode.
What’s wrong with that? Well, there isn’t much of a story in Story Mode.
Here, you play as an ISO program - a computerized guy or gal - who is on a quest to become champion of the Tron Games. To do so, you wander about several stages and compete in games against the AI.
Win and you move the story along to the next section. Lose, and you’ll have to play that game again.
This tale got so bland that I lost interest an hour into playing the game. There’s no grand threat or conspiracy to take over the land; it’s just you playing in games against the AI. Good thing this mode only lasts between three to five hours.
And the games aren’t that great; the Light Cycle can take too long, the tank and disc battling game is nothing more than dodge and mash that B button, and the catch game with the glowing ball can get irritating for some players.
You can use your winnings in Story Mode to buy different equipment or outfits, but that didn’t have much of an effect on overall gameplay.
This is just a weak excuse to take money from you; they should’ve just given us the same game as the PS3/360 crowd. But they didn’t - and at $50, Tron: Evolution Battle Grids isn’t worth it. SKIP IT.
