TRON: Evolution Review (Mini)

For all the hype of TRON: Legacy and the supported hype with TRON: Evolution; I found a great distance between the two products. I felt the movie was a bit too much style over substance in regards to the original 80s movie.

With TRON: Evolution, I felt the same thing: style over substance. The title looked pretty and moved well, but it felt like everything was too visually polished without creating a deep connection with the source material. Combat is more about jumping around, looking for energy to use against stronger enemies, and focusing on parkour rather than platforming.

It might be fun as a rental, but as a full title especially one connected to a large release, it shows again that related properties usually don’t succeed.
