SUCH A DISSAPOINTMENT

#1 Posted by razorback345 (3 posts) -

So annoyed at this game, I'm a big Tron fan and enjoyed the Tron legacy film. I was really looking foward to the Tron evolution game thinking this was it, this is going to be massive, a selection of Tron events to choose from such as disc battle, lightcyles, tanks, the ball game etc.  All with fantastic gameplay and graphics where you can compete in competions and appear in legue table and stuff. Well bought the game ....and what a bloody dissapointment, such a let down.  The graphics are awsome looking, but the gameplay is just CRAP!  The disc battles are just rubbish, you run amongst other bots or online players(and thats a small handful) who are randomly flinging their discs around, discs continuously bouncing off you, getting battlered hand to hand by people crowding you, and its just naff, not much fun.  The lightcylcles being the most iconic thing about the film is a real let down. Once again graphics looks amazing, and your character does that really cool thing of jumping and the cycle forming around him, but you can just explode because someone jumps out his bike when hes near you and decides to throw a disc at your bike, light cycles tactics ......gone. There is no sense of impact  either when you crash just a tame  PUFF  with no electrical derezzing sound....and worst of all the swooshing noise is just not there when doing 90 degree turns, NOTHING! Thats the most satisfying noise ever!  ..Play argamegtron with the movie add on pack..trust me.

I agree Tron was a bit of a disappointment, you also need to learn how to use paragraphs.

actually, for a video game based on a movie, its anything BUT a disappointment... i expected a piece of shit but Evolution is pretty polished and entertaining and visually stunning with tight controls, so allow me to disagree 
  

also, i saw the movie in 3D 2 days ago and it was fucking epic... a blockbuster that focused on less masses of people and explosions and more on a couple of characters, their relationship and how the whole Grid business wasted their years and gave them dark and grim regrets

Sounds like your expectations were way to high going in.

  I thought the film was great...and the game is very polished looking, single player is fun, like a a cyber prince of persia really.  But I was hoping that the multiplayer was going to be much better, graphics great , just a huge lack of options for setting up games and its just...boring

Just because its tron doesn't mean bad movie game syndrome can't happen.

While Tron: Evolution looks better than most movie games it still was essentially a movie game. I don't think it was reasonable to expect too much from it.

This shows how important it is to manage your expectations :P 
 
It is like how when there was this that I was excited about the Watchmen film this one time.

@Leakster: Having a Big Rigs profile avatar tells me you are someone who knows very well how to manage your expectations. :)
 
I tried to rent T:E a couple weeks ago but it wasn't even carried at my usual store. Gotta drive a little farther to find it, or maybe it'll be cheaper to buy then. So much glowy.

I just got it for $15 and it isn't the worst thing in the world. The checkpoints can be a bitch, and the combat is super easy if you use the right disc on the right enemy. The visuals are pretty great and the music adds to the atmoshpere. It isn't as good of a quality as I'd like a Tron game to be, but it's just a fun little average game in the Tron universe!

You have to remember that Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay was a complete fluke.

Just finished it and I could not wait for it to be over...the wall running/climbing got really frustrating towards the end and I could not stand it...fighting the final guards was beyond boring and took way too long. It was somewhat fun to play, but I just wish a better Tron game came out of this. Im sure it was like most movie games where they can't start developing until the movie starts filming as to get the look of it right. And they have to come out the same time as the movie so it ends up being a rushed crap job. I hope that there is another Tron game that a company can take their time with and make a more quality experience in the Tron world!
