Tron Deadly Discs è inizialmente un titolo piacevole. Purtoppo l'eccessiva ripetitività e la mancanza di diverse modalità di gioco lo rendono inefficace a lungo termine. Un pregio di questa cartuccia sta nel fatto che riesce a fare un buon utilizzo del controller dell'Intellivision, un sistema di input non proprio facile da usare. Ritengo, comunque, che questa versione sia meglio di quella per Atari 2600 ma è ancora troppo poco per valere un voto con i fiocchi

The graphics and the sound are fairly good for 1982. I have no major complaints in that area. My only major complaint is the fact that there is only the one game mode. The game select switch does nothing. As a result, this game has the possibility of becoming repetitive. Add to that a hero that doesn’t move as fast as I would like and you have the makings of a game that can and will cause some minor frustration at times. Between the lack of game modes and the possibility of some frustration, I would say that this particular game isn’t for everybody, but it is not a bad game and is certainly worth taking the time to play a little.

Un giochino piacevole ma molto ripetitivo. La realizzazione è caratterizzata da buone animazioni e da un sonoro sufficiente che si contrappongono ad un'arena dallo scarso dettaglio grafico. Se volete a tutti i costi questo gioco, provate la versione per Intellivision credo che la troverete migliore

Tron's crisp sound effects are impressive. When you strike an attacker with your disc, it makes an amazing shattering sound that's so clear you'd think it was real. The low, rumbling sound of the boss making his entrance is notable as well. Despite its cool bells and whistles however, Deadly Discs is not as exciting as you might think. Your disc travels slowly, and you have to wait for it to bounce off a wall and return to you. For some idiotic reason the discs are harmless on their return flight. Too bad - I'm quite certain this game would be twice as fun if you could nail enemies on the rebound. Another issue is the difficulty level. The first few waves are easy, and by the time the challenge kicks in your thumb will be getting sore. Tron Deadly Discs shows flashes of brilliance, but its leisurely pace prevents it from being great.

As a result, this edition feels second-rate. In addition, an astute reader noted that it takes far too long for the serious challenge to kick in. With no variety in the stages, Deadly Disc's gameplay quickly becomes monotonous.
