If you love Tron, then you'll love this game. It is a prequel to the movie. It is very stylized and looks, sounds amazing. The game is short. The game is great when you think that Disney owns the rights, then it is the best Disney released game for adults. I felt the game was rushed to be released and could have been an amazing game, the following for Tron was small and the movie didn't have the following that Disney was hoping for, so not enough was done with this game, but still, in my opinion, an amazing game. Worth a rent, not worth $60 new.
I love that they did a game in between the movies, rather than the usual rehash of the plot, but the locations and plotlines often seemed very similar to the new movie. The game mechanics were very fast moving and the auto save and "derezzing" mechanic was a very nice method for the player to learn the game. However, those two mechanics also made it impossible to go back and get the missing pieces you must collect without replaying the whole level, which made the game seem rather forced and often frustrating.
The advancement also seemed uneven. I was about 2/3 of the way through the story when I stopped playing, and I had gained enough for about 10% of the upgrades (a liberal estimate). There were a couple of points where I stopped to battle multiple waves of enemies to gain extra XP to tackle this problem, but if you derez before a checkpoint, that extra XP goes away, so this tactic might work, but may be a waste of time.
i would have given it a negative 4 if i could. got the game played the semi-tutorial and slipped it back in the cover it came in and sealed it for return. graphics weren't impressive. no depth of field. controls weren't user friendly. not very thought out with user / player in mind. mainly button mashing and honestly what dignified gamer still plays a button masher. weak attempt in all aspects. just over lame.
