Jan 10, 2008

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

The %26ldquo;almost%26rdquo; 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%26rsquo;s aim, whether he was running around or in a tank.
