Deadly discs

  • Enhancements don't suck
  • Online multiplayer

Cons

  • Control is completely broken
  • Only four different objectives
  • Steep difficulty curve

Jan 10, 2008

Guaranteed to make those who remember playing the original arcade game feel really old (26 years…yikes), Tron is one of those rare gems- a super-popular, classic arcade game that hasn’t seen a release on every home console known to man. And as we’ve come to expect from the classics on Live Arcade, it's almost pixel perfect in the way it looks and plays.

The “almost” is the upsetting part, however. The upright Tron arcade cabinet was controlled using a flight stick for movement and a trigger for firing. It also featured a spinning disc, which was used to rotate the character’s aim, whether he was running around or in a tank.
