"This XBLA release makes it clear that Tron is better left in the early '80s where it belongs. The visual style will bring feelings of nostalgia to those who are old enough to remember the original, but like most classic XBLA releases the notion is fleeting. Once it wears off all you're left with is a game that controls poorly and isn't all that much fun to play. There are worse things you could purchase for five bucks, but there are certainly better cheap XBLA offerings out there."
