Imagine the perfect 80’s film; car chases, arcade games, sporting triumph, combat scenes, computer games, love interest, geek turned hero and a ‘happy’ ending. Well thankfully you don’t have to imagine it, just fire up the VCR and watch TRON[1. This is a Sponsored Post.], the cult 80’s classic from Walt Disney. Most kids of that era will remember being marvelled by TRON on a 15 tri-color TV; they will now be able to watch the latest instalment TRON: Legacy in 3D – a sign of the time that has passed between the two films, a modest 28years.
Rather than try and cram all of the ‘mythology’ into TRON: Legacy, Disney decided to fill in the gaps with TRON: Evolution; a game whose story takes place before the forthcoming movie and provides insight into the film’s past. The game conveys the story of significant events within the TRON mythology, in an epic adventure across a digital world filled with high-mobility disc-based combat and advanced light cycles.
As an integrated entertainment experience, the film reference’s elements of the game’s story. Fans will want to play the game to learn more about the TRON mythology seen in the film, but each entertainment experience will stand on its own. Be you Ape, Gentleman or anything in between, there’s not one that would pass up an opportunity to race the light cycles or try the disc-combat. Using modern technology Disney has been able to recreate these surreal experiences in a game format.
TRON: Evolution is not just a game, it’s an interactive movie.
A stocking filler that will prove equally popular with father as it will son, the new Disney TRON: Evolution is available now on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
