A storyline of Tron that fits right into the movie, AND you are actually able to play a part of it - in 3D!!
on April 11, 2017
First thing I want to mention is that they used some of the orig cast members in the voiceovers for this game, which I though was kind of cool - Voiceover by actress Olivia Wilde (from the 2010 Tron movie) as Quorra, and voiceover actor by Bruce Boxleitner From the orig. Tron movie in 1982 as Tron.
This iteration (TRON: Evolution video game) is actually a key to unlocking the TRON mythology that fits in between the original 1982 film and the 2010 blockbuster film TRON: Legacy. So you are actually 'playing' in part of a film series, which I also find kind of cool!
One of the main reasons I bought this game was for the 3D feature as I am a 3D NUT. And I have to say that it did not disappoint! The 3D is fantastic, and at times I found myself becoming truly immersed into the gameplay just because of the 3D effects, like being pulled into the game itself, yes I enjoy a great 3D adventure that much. Please keep in mind that not all 3D TV's are capable of displaying a great 3D image, as they are not all made the same. However, I am lucky to own one of the TV's that does an excellent job at rendering a perfect 3D image. And being able to enjoy this game in 3D was truly a visual treat to behold. It made the game all that much better.
I did not like the fact that this is NOT a free roam environment, you actually have to follow the game path the game takes you on. There is a learning curve to being able to take the Tron 'bike' up walls or vertical surfaces and I had quite a hard time with this. The story line seems to flow along at a decent pace and should keep the average gamer interested enough to keep playing or moving forward. The game allows you to use a move controller if so desired but it is not require to be able to play. The move option is just that, 'an option'. I found that using the move controller made parts of the game easier and other parts harder so I often found myself pausing the game to switch back and forth between controllers, which was a little monotonous at times. Also this is only a single player game unless you go online to join others. I find that here in 2017 there are sometimes no one online, yes you read that right, absolutely 'nobody' which leads me to believe that this game is not real popular. Again I purchased for the 3D aspect and I bought this back in June of 2011 so I have had it a few years. However, I still find myself getting it out to enjoy a bit of 3D gameplay every now and then.
I really like the fact that it is actually a part of the storyline in the movie and this gives the game more of a meaning than just your average gameplay. The graphics are great. There were no bugs that I found. the frame rate is excellent with no jerky motion. There were virtually no dropouts which is good considering the speed of the game at times.
All in all I really enjoy this game. And would I buy it again knowing what I know about it now? - A solid and resounding YES!
