Very Good

Best looking 3D game I've played thus far!

The 3d effect in this game is amazing and is more eye popping than Killzone 3, and Enslaved! Now the Cinematics graphics weren't as impressive but the gameplay had great graphics to show off the depth of 3d. 3d mixed with fast paced prince of persia style gameplay is fun, this is a game not to be missed if you are a fan of platforming. I recommend this for anyone with a 3d t.v. or if you're just a fan of your run of the mill prince of persia style game!

Worth a Rental if a Tron or Prince of Persia fan

I'm a fan of Xplay on G4 tv and agree with their rating of 2 out of 5 for "Tron Evolution". Their is nothing new as far as game play or style in this game. Levels repeat themselves as far as look and feel. Evidence was obvious when my mother watching me play the game said out load who doesn't even play games, "the levels look the same".

As frustrating as it is to play the game and derez [die] allot to advance and possibly beat the game, its satisfying to see how the game is an actual prequel to "Tron Legacy" and was satisfied to have the game referenced multiple times by Olivia Wilde in the film. The final cut scene of "Tron Evolution" is satisfying with Olivia Wilde walking away into the badlands. The game would have been possibly worth keeping if the developers would have included a feature in other games of being able to watch the cut scenes after completion in the main menu.

The biggest disappointment in the game is the final boss battle that feels lazy and sloppy in the single player campaign. The final boss battle is 6 enemies that keep re-spawning over 40 times.

The Multiplayer would be entertaining if their were actually more then 3 people at a time available for matches. It was a great idea and would like other games to have this feature of the advancing your character in multiplayer and cary over in the single player campaign.

In all honesty, a fan could save themselves allot of time and frustration and just youtube the cutscenes if wanting to see them without playing the game. Its worth a play if your a fan of prince of persia or possibly a tomb raider style of game play.

Tron Universe and Platforming Lovers Only

First of all, I am a huge fan of the first Tron movie. I also LIKED the new Tron Legacy movie. There is no doubt that this game looks like settings of the Tron universe. There is not much variety (four or maybe five different looks), but if you are a fan of Tron you will like the look. The game is a button mashing platformer, plain and simple. The platforming is similar to Prince of Persia or Mirror's Edge, with wall running (sometimes annoying) and the like. It starts rather slowly and a bit boring. It gets better about two hours in with more variety and action (although still non-stop button mashing). I enjoyed the light cycles and even the SLOW tank driving, but the repetitive disk throwing got old about halfway through. Yes, there are different types of disks which definitely helped the action. But after a while, I was just trying to push through. The story was OK, no surprises. Some have said that it sets up Tron Legacy. I guess it does a little bit. SPOILER -- You find out that Quorra is really important (an ISO) and Clu has taken Flynn's instructions too literally, but that's about it as far as Tron Legacy goes.

I own the Playstation Move and would have liked to see what the entire game would have been like playing with the Move, but you can only play light cycle section independent of the main game.

If you really like Tron and platforming then you will like (not love) this game. If the wall running of games like Mirror's Edge or Prince of Persia annoy you then steer far from this game.
