As the subject line says.

I am a late-30's gamer that absolutely loved the Tron movie when it first came out. I picked this up on December 7th at a gamestop and I think it is a truly fantastic game.

The graphics are beautiful on the PS3, judging by some of the reviews I have read here, I would love to know what the expectations were with regards to how the game was designed. It looks exactly like the movie, what more did you want? As far as the story mode goes, it is loaded with Combat and some interesting cut-scenes, and from my viewpoint, those were my expectations from an action based game. They aren't re-inventing the wheel...and hell, I didn't want them to.

I, also, have been frustrated by the terrible games in the past that were thrown out there in a rush move to capitalize on the interest created by the release. I would not throw Tron Evolution into that category.

I will summarize my thoughts with this: If interest in the movie or the Tron world is what has brought you to the game, you will not be disappointed.

I was excited to pick this up as a new entry in the Tron universe. Tron 2.0 was interesting, but deviated (in my mind) from the true Tron experience by turning it into a first-person shooter (the original Tron wasn't about guns!).

So how does it fare? If you're familiar with Mirror's Edge and Prince of Persia for traversing your environment as well as God of War for combat, you're in familiar territory. When I say God of War, I use it quite loosely as the combat in God of War is quite visceral and visually stunning whereas Tron utilizes more stilted movements and variations on a single weapon (the disc, whether it be the disc bomb, etc.); there are combos, to be sure, but not overly creative compared to God of War. The game is not ground-breaking, but instead draws upon familiar themes. You'll feel at home. Other Tron-signature moments occur in the game in the form of the Light Cycle and the Tank. Both are very well-done and are "true" to the movie interpretations.

Some reviews that I have read online complain about the rather bland aesthetic as well as some game play elements (the tank is a "slow, lumbering" vehicle). If you're not familiar with the movie, then you won't appreciate that the game designer's attempt in keeping in line with the actual Tron universe. If you're looking for a phenomenal, game-changing ride then don't look here. It is, as I've mentioned, a parkour-style game with a rather basic combat system that pays homage to the Tron geek in me more than it does to develop a game that is mind-blowing in and of itself. It's a step above the traditional movie tie-in, in my opinion, although you may find others here who will disagree.

How is the story? So-so.

It is well known amongst gamers that most movie tie-in games are garbage that are typically rushed out in order to capitalize on the film's release. While I had feared that this would be the case for Tron: Evolution, I am happy to report that everything seems to have come together very nicely.

First and foremost the visuals are superb. While the character models are adequate and could have been rendered better the environments are absolutely gorgeous. They are stunningly realized and provide striking vistas to look at throughout the game. The developers have really nailed the dark neon cyberspace world of Tron perfectly merging the look of both films together with great results. This is a beautiful looking game that could be best described as eye candy for Tron geeks.

The story itself is well written and provides a much needed bridge between the original film and the new one. The voice actors all do a good job and to my ears all sound like the original actors. The music is scored by Daft Punk and is fantastic, one of the best parts of the game. It really fits the setting and works perfectly.

Combat is quite visceral and intense with a well developed and expansive set of moves/powers. The enemies each require different strategies to defeat so it keeps it all from being the mindless hack and slash tedium that have plagued so many other actioners. There are also light cycle and tank sequences that provide variety and help to keep things fresh.

I am not much of an online gamer but the multiplayer components of the game are actually quite fun to play and have a distinctly old school arcade feel to them. While the core game is a bit on the short side (can be completed in 6-8 hours) the online portion really helps give it replay value.

I like this game more than I don't like it. So here's my quick review:

Pros:
- Tron world is beautifully rendered.
- Disk battles are pretty cool.
- After a few hours into the game it does feel kind of cool/fun disk battling.
- Fills in the story about Clu so ties in neatly with the movie.

Cons:
- After a few more hours however it begins to really get repetitive and you're about ready for the ending. It boils down to a mashup of 4 types of games interspersed with cutscenes: platform jumping, disk battling, light cycle riding, tank battling.
- There are the odd platform jumps which require you to try a dozen times because it isn't obvious where or when to jump.
- Stereoscopic 3D works and makes the Tron world come alive but it's unusable because the camera turns will make you throw up.

Summary:
It's worth playing to the point that you've experienced the 4 types of games, and then you can pretty much put the game down.
The platform jumping will make you want to throw the controller into the screen.
