Play Digital Tron Video Review

Play Digital goes old school with a video review of the arcade classic Tron. The game was recently re-released for Xbox Live Arcade. Katharine, your video host, gives her usual well grounded opinion of the game, proving that not all oldies are goodies.

I wasn’t even alive when this game was first released into arcades – but being a massive fan of the movie I thought I’d give it a whirl upon its re-release or Xbox Live Arcade.

Isn’t is funny how, sometimes, things just aren’t as good as you’d hope they would be? Watch the show for my verdict and some trip-tastic visuals.

The original game had better sound and controls than the XBLA game. The aiming was done via spinning control, similar to Tempest. Any translation of TRON without a spinner is a waste of time. The emulated music is glitched and off-key. I’ve always been confused how one quarter of the game is devoted to a 5-second meaningless scene in the movie, the Gridbugs. I played the original, saw the original movie in the theater, and I totally agree with the review.
