Of all the campy sci-fi flicks from the ’80s, few have more built-in potential for a videogame adaptation than Tron. With its (at-the-time) groundbreaking CG animation and game-developer-trapped-in-a-computer storyline, Disney’s cult classic has plenty of hooks in place for a decent gaming crossover. Unfortunately, Tron: Evolution wastes most of that potential on sloppy, unimaginative third-person action and some seriously reprehensible vehicular segments.

TRON: Evolution doesn’t tell the story of the new film, TRON: Legacy, but instead, it acts as a prequel, bridging the narrative gap between the original film and its sequel. The hero of the first movie–Kevin Flynn–now lives full time inside the computer world of the Grid, and it’s a rocky time for him and the Grid’s digital dudes. A new form of sentient life has appeared–the Isos–and many existing programs are distrustful of the new race. An aggressive virus led by the villain Abraxas is also sweeping the world, turning both programs and Isos alike into nasty, green-tinted creatures with an unexplained penchant for dreadlocks.

TRON is a movie franchise that should have good video games. It’s one of the major examples of a movie video game that doesn’t suck. So with a new TRON film coming out, there’s a lot to live up to with the series. Unfortunately, TRON: Evolution comes off as a ho-hum movie tie in game. It’s got some cool multi-player potential, but other than that it’s a weak program.
