Ok. If you were born after 1980, just stop reading this now and move on. This game will only appeal to the nostolgic side of gamers who remember the days when playing games meant a pocket full of quarters, a grape slushi and either a trip to the convienence store to play the one or two games they might have stuck in the corner or a trip to the mall and the arcade. Tron is a faithful port of the arcade original, so it will bring back some great memories, but don't expect your kids to be impressed. All of the classic components are there - the battle with the spiders to get to the core, the light cycles (wahoo), the tank battle (another favorite) and the shield shooting.
Like most arcade ports, the game can be frustrating. After all, these games are not designed to provide the gamer hours of play like a Super Mario game, but to get you sucked in and to keep paying quarters in. It was not in their interest to design a game that lasted longer than 5 to 10 minutes per play. I did miss having a dial to play the spider and shield stages - an arcade player will remember that the game had both, a joystick and a dial.
I give this game 3 stars. It is what it says it is, a port of the arcade game. Dated and will not stand up against even some of the worst games of today, but a fun game to bring up some memories.
