Hack the Gibson. 
 
Prince of Persia action... I'm liking it.

Posted by Cheapoz

A Tron game could've been a visual/audio crazy town. Think 3rd person action in the style of Geometry Wars. 
 
This looks like the absolute bare minimum in every way. No ambient noises or look about it.

This looks way better than what I thought it would be.

pretty slick

  • I'll buy it
  • always be cautious when the 'Game Director' calls you 'consumer' (they don't mean it ironically)
  • the art style is way too video-gamey for me (focus tested groups of whom and what? - not tron fans)
  • the orginal art by the genius Syd Mead is more pure - almost purist (not appealing for mass-'consumers', I guess. (GB-Wiki-weasels - he needs an entry badly). Not only because the computer graphic was in it's infancy, but also, because it fits the fiction. Tron 2.0 captured this art style too, IMHO).
  • hope the PC controls are not console 1:1 port
  • also hope, the gameplay is interesting enough.
  • I liked Monolith's Tron 2.0

I'm normally not a huge fan of Quick Look EXs, but how, HOW  I ask you, can I say no to Johnny V?

Posted by gunslingerNZ

I'll be honest the combat and platforming in this looks really dull. It's a shame since it seems like they're actually putting some effort into this for a movie game.

Posted by StandStrong

Is it just me or this gameplay look a lot like Prince of Persia ( ex. Forgotten sands) And by a lot, I mean identical? This really looks incredibly boring, and its to bad, cause i really like the style.

Hot Tronny action 24/7.

This looks pretty good, much better than the trailers they put out.

The light cycle sound effects seemed a little weak. It didn't feel like there was any impact when he was landing those jumps.

Posted by itspizza

Dosn't look bad. Ill probably never play it, unless I really like Tron Legacy

err  ERRR   ERRRRR EERRR ERR EERR ERR ERRR STOP SAYING ERRRRRRRRR! 

Posted by JohngPR

I like the art direction and graphics, but the animations look pretty bad, especially when you grab on a ledge after a jump.  Not only that, but the game looks a little boring. :(
 
I'll probably gamefly it though.

Dude needs to stop saying massive so much. It's hard to listen to someone spew out marketing buzzwords non-stop for 35 minutes and really understand what they're talking about. 

Posted by Swoxx

Best QLEX to date, they're usually so formal and boring, nice. 
 
Don't think to much of the game though, sorry :/

Posted by Eristocrat

This honestly might be the single best video on Giant Bomb.

Posted by jorbear

As long as the game features Johnny V, I will buy this. 

Posted by SuperfluousMoniker

I'm not a fan of the look of this game, but the gameplay looks alright.

Posted by AllanIceman

Johnny V Yo!!

Posted by tourgen

It looks better than I expected.  I'll play it.

Posted by ImperiousRix

This actually looks really good.  I really wanna try it out now.

I turned off when he said the word "consumer" a second time. The first I time I let it pass thinking he was being ironic but when I realised he wasn't I knew I won't be interested in this product.

Wait, so using a proper term to describe the people who buy games made you turn it off?

Yes.

Never seen Tron and I don't really have an affinity for the property, but I can't deny that the lightcycle stuff looks pretty cool.

Posted by Deltan

Ahhhh Johnny, lawl.  Great stuff as usual!
 
I wasn't at all interested in Tron until I saw this Quick Look.  I appreciate the clean look of this title, straight forward.  
 
No Jeff Bridges voice though? Boo.

Posted by ptys

The dude keeps doing Ballet moves to kill guys, whats up with that?

Posted by pbhawks45
@Scooper: That makes absolutely no sense.
Posted by Daftasabat

This looked pretty tedious, i'll stick with Prince of Persia thank you very much :) Hope the film is better than this effort

Posted by Scooper
@pbhawks45: What do you care.
Posted by ReverseNegative

Looks cool.

Posted by Zlimness

Wow, they really ripped off Prince of Persia hard. Don't care much for this game, but their bantering is fun to listen to.

Posted by thebigJ_A

It looks like thay know what they are doing. I mean, it seems solid and everything. But... and forgive me if this is unclear... it just seems very videogamey. Does anyone get what I mean, because I can't really describe it any better. I don't really want to play it, because it seems way too gamey. Like it isn't immersive, or maybe t seems too much like dozens of other, older games. 
 
Aside from the artstyle, which is nice. Very Tron. But I could see someone playing something like this on a Playstation 1, or maybe an original xbox. 
 
That's it! It doesn't feel very modern. That's just from looking at it here, though. I'm willing to be convinced otherwise.

Consumer sure as hell beats fans in my opinion...
Posted by Binman88

This does not look very interesting at all. 

Posted by DBoy

This QLEX has made me more excited for this game than I was beforehand.

Edited by Delta_Ass

So it's basically Prince of Persia, but in Tron.
 
Well, okay. That's... that's a thing.
 
EDIT: Lightcycle section does look awesome though.

Posted by crusader8463

I like the character models and animation, but the gameplay looks repetitive as fuck and the levels look bland and uninteresting. Looks like a slightly above par movie tie in game a long the lines of that wolverine game from a year or so back. 
 
Oh well. I guess if Tron gives you a nerd boner you might like it.

it looks a game by the numbers, a cliche. 
 
running and jumping platforms in order to hit a "key" to open a door? GTFO. that stuff flew maybe in the 90s. 
light cycle race on rails with left right doge mechanics? no thanks. 
 
flat barren landscape with respawning bad guys that have no environmental attachment?  lazy. 
basically saying very dryly "here is the part where you fight 5 guys." 
 
color coded areas telling you where you should jump and grab? you know i complain about Assassin's Creed sometimes, but man those guys have outstanding production values. really feels like you can go anywhere. it hides the conventions to make you feel like you are in the world. hats off to them after seeing this.

Holy fuck that is one dull ass looking game.

Posted by Sargus

I wasn't really interested in this before... Now I kinda am.

animations suck

Posted by CornBREDX

I liked Tron 2.0, I'll say first. I was also a fan of the original movie, despite its flaws. I know not a lot of people did (on both counts, but specifically I mean for Tron 2.0) but I liked some stuff they tried to do with Tron 2.0- I still play it occasionally.
 
I cant get over the parkour and I wish I could as that's the biggest thing that bothers me. I don't see the connection or the necessity for parkour in Tron. I'm old, though, so I cant help but look at it from that old school perspective I guess. Feels to much like a PoP rip off.
 
Other then that the game looks interesting but unfortunately I didn't catch any reference to the music as one big part of the original movie was the type of music they did. I have a bad feeling they will do some things right but will miss out on some aspects of what made Tron unique. I suspect the same of the movie, though.
 
The locations, also, look awfully drab for some reason. The upgraded suits and what not, to me, are not as neat as the original designs. I also feel if this is supposed to be more modern the Tanks and the Recognizers would have evolved more heavily. This seems to suggest its merely a aesthetic change (which I suppose is supposed to represent their higher processing power, maybe?). I don't know.  I'll probably get really nit picky here, and I havent played this nor seen the movie yet, but I'm just not feeling it yet.

IDK, I'll have to wait and see.
