A Moving Editora está lançando "Tron 2.0" no Brasil por apenas 40 reais - um excelente preço para um jogo de primeira linha que estreou faz pouco tempo nos EUA. Se você entende de computação não deve perder essa oportunidade de ver como a Monolith e a Disney conseguiram transformar a chatice da operação eletrônica em algo bastante carismático.

Shooter gibt es wie Sand am Meer, egal ob gute oder schlechte. Ich habe da eine ganz persönliche „Hitliste“, in die es wirklich nicht so leicht ist, hineinzukommen. „TRON 2.0“ schafft dies auf Anhieb. In meinen Augen hat Monolith es wieder einmal geschafft und nicht mehr und nicht weniger als den bist dato besten Shooter dieses Jahrgangs produziert, der zwar „No One Lives Forever 2“ nicht vom Genrethron stoßen kann, aber dennoch heftig an dessen Sockel kratzt. Persönlich völlig unverständlich finde ich die Wertungen mancher Kollegen, die einer etwas besseren Level-CD wie „Jedi Academy“, die auf eine mittlerweile fast fünf Jahre alte, betagte Quake3-Engine setzt, um teilweise bis zu fünf Punkte höhere Bewertungen geben kann als einem modernen, sowohl inhaltlich als auch designtechnisch weit überlegenen, Spiel wie „TRON 2.0“.

I got into the cult of Tron rather late, not seeing the ground-breaking (and still extremely entertaining) 1982 film until the mid-90s, and therefore never having much interest in the arcade game. All that changed with the release of the 20th Anniversary DVD. As a recent devotee of the film that started it all, I relished with great anticipation the arrival of Tron 2.0, a PC game set in the Tron universe 20 years after the film’s events.

No matter what you think of the movie, TRON 2.0 stands out as a thoroughly entertaining, infinitely playable, and visually spectacular experience. No question, Monolith pulled off a winner. Let’s just hope we don’t have to wait 20 more years for TRON 3.0.

Tron 2.0 is a triumphant blend of shooter action, role-playing elements, and strategy presented via some of tile best graphics of the year. It’s just too bad the light cycles suck, but more on that later.

У TRON 2.0 достаточно сил, чтобы отправить в нокдаун Chaser, Devastation и прочую шушеру, и гордости, чтобы не гоняться с лопатой за столпами жанра, называя себя их "убийцей". Гротескная современная киберпанк-сказка про отважных героев-хакеров и великих негодяев, рассказанная языком нулей и единиц. Услышав ее, вы больше никогда не уроните свой КПК на пол.

Tron 2.0 is a grand achievement for Monolith. The team has managed to combine more or less everything a Tron fan ever wanted from a Tron game with the mechanics that made the NOLF series so loveable, to come up with a fabulous, compelling action title. It certainly isn't going to win any awards for pushing the envelope, but it's a damn sight better than most of the generic FPS tripe we've seen pass through the office over the last year or so.

Adrenaline Vault, The (AVault)
Although my expectations were sky high, I'm pleased to report that Tron 2.0 fulfilled all of them. What I encountered here was a very difficult combination: incredible creative innovation combined with a high degree of faithfulness to the original film. Playing a game taking place within a computer on your own PC has never been more fun. Monolith and Buena Vista Interactive both deserve tremendous praise for spending the time necessary to produce what can only be considered a masterpiece. While by no means perfect, as a few small areas could use improvement, I couldn't have asked for much more. Anyone who loved the movie (and who is eagerly anticipating its sequel) or who loves computer technology needs to go out and buy this release immediately. Those who missed the flick or find it too dated will find that this new recreational title incorporates all the sophistication of all the latest developments in the computer industry.

When I got my hands on it and installed it I, the 26 year old now computer games freak, was shocked for the second time. I could never believe they would be capable of redesigning so well the whole universe and thus, recreating the original feeling the movie was inspiring you. I can even say it's better than the movie and this is because they had access to the original sketches and even some undisclosed ones.

Armchair Empire, The
It’s been a long time since I first watched Tron, and to tell you honestly, I really don’t remember too much of the movie save for the main gist of the plot. As such, I had my reservations about playing a game that was based on a franchise that I have very little interest in. If you have any of those reservations as well, do yourself a favor and ignore any doubts you may have and at least play the demo and give this game a chance. Tron 2.0 is very creative, full of good ideas, and combines elements of different types of games. The overall result is a great looking game that is a joy to play and you don’t have to know about the movie to enjoy the storyline.

TRON 2.0 is a stellar game, one that dares to venture beyond the standard shooter formula and pulls it off with style. TRON fans will undoubtedly get the most out of it, but even if you're just a fan of action games, or heck, just games in general -- you should run out to the store and jack in to TRON 2.0 as soon as possible. Just remember to keep one finger on the quicksave key.

Verknüpft wird das abgedrehte Szenario durch eine gute stimmige Geschichte, die für rund 15 Stunden Spielspaß im Einzelspieler-Modus sorgt, obwohl ein oder zwei Jump&Run-Stellen echt nervtötend sind. Anschließend könnt Ihr packende Lightcycle-Duelle im Mehrspieler-Modus ausfechten oder Euch gegenseitig den Diskus um die Ohren werfen. Die Faszination des Einzelspieler-Modus erreicht der Multiplayer jedoch nicht. Tron2.0 ist ein klasse Genre-Mix geworden, der seine Faszination hauptsächlich aus der genialen Spielwelt zieht und dieses Szenario mit tollen Missionen verknüpft. Fans des Films können sofort zugreifen und wenn Ihr ein Spiel abseits des Shooter-Einheitsbreis sucht, dann ist Tron2.0 auch die richtige Wahl. Wer aber erwartet, bei Tron nur „Action pur" vorzufinden, der sollte sich lieber die Demo zu Gemüte führen. Für mich ist es auf jeden Fall der Hit in diesem Sommer. End of Line.

Perfekte Umsetzung einer Filmvorlage. Optisch und auch spielerisch hebt sich TRON 2.0 angenehm von der breiten Shootermasse ab. Für Fans ein Muss, ansonsten allerdings Geschmackssache.

Ich gebe es zu, ich wollte den Tron 2.0-Test erst gar nicht übernehmen. Spielprinzip und Design waren mir irgendwie zu freakig und überhaupt, das Thema - na ja. Meine Firewall aus Vorurteilen hat der geballten Spielspaß-Ladung allerdings nicht lange standgehalten. Tron 2.0 wird jeden mit seinem "Wow, ist das genial!"-Virus infizieren, der sich nur ein wenig mit Computern auskennt und Action-Spiele mag. Kein Wunder, denn Grafik, Sound und die gute Übersetzung verleihen der deutschen Version eine perfekte Atmosphäre. Hinzu kommen die abwechslungsreichen Missionen plus die vielen Anspielungen auf Situationen und Probleme im normalen Windows-Alltag, mit denen irgendwie jeder PC-Spieler was anfangen kann. Klar, der Schwierigkeitsgrad ist happig und die Lichtrennen hinken dem Funfaktor des Freeware-Flitzers glTron gewaltig hinterher. Davon mal abgesehen ist Tron 2.0 jedoch die Überraschung des Jahres und schon jetzt ein Kultspiel!

Bref, j'ai beau chercher, je ne vois pas trop ce que l'on pourrait reprocher à Tron 2.0. A moins bien sûr de ne pas accrocher au design particulier, ou encore d'être totalement allergique au vocabulaire très « geek » de l'informatique, on ne peut qu'apprécier cette aventure virtuelle.

Tron 2.0 hat mich überrascht. Und zwar positiv. Zwar hatte ich bereits im Vorfeld einen guten Eindruck von dem Actionspiel. Doch je länger ich es daddelte, desto besser gefiel es mir. Das Jäger-und-Sammler-Prinzip löst in Kombination mit dem durchdachten Inventar-System bei mir ähnliche Suchtanfälle aus wie seinerzeit Diablo 2. Ich muss einfach jede Ecke des Levels absuchen, um meine Werte zu steigern. Die Lichtrennen entpuppten sich entgegen meiner Erwartung als schwächster Abschnitt des Spiels. Trotz frei justierbarer Kamera fehlt hier meistens die Übersicht. Der Rest ist aber Spitzenklasse.

Als jemand, der über Elementarteilchen-Witze lachen kann, bin ich freakig genug für Tron 2.0. Und ich danke den Entwicklern dafür, dass ich endlich mal nicht auf Aliens oder irgendwelche Militärfuzzis ballern muss! Gegner mit dem Diskus plätten statt mit einer AK-47, das hat Stil und erfordert mehr Können als stupides Dauerballern. Und während ich die Light-Cycle-Rennen im Einzelspieler-Modus eher lästig finde, gehören sie zu meinen absoluten Multiplayer-Lieblingen. Tron 2.0 hat auch seine nervigen Momente. Wer die Hüpfeinlagen verbrochen hat, müsste zur Strafe eigentlich die nächsten Monate mit einem 20 Jahre alten ZX81 arbeiten. Auch doof: Gegner tauchen bisweilen in Gebieten neu auf, die ich längst gesäubert habe. Aber auch wenn Kollege Stangl meckert: Tron 2.0 gefällt mir dank der originellen Spielwelt besser als jeder andere Shooter der jüngeren Vergangenheit.

ActionTrip
In terms of presentation and overall quality of the game, TRON 2.0 is admirable. A decent story; well-told and fitted excellently into a video game; beautiful artwork and level design are all essential parts of a good game, and TRON 2.0 has them all. There are numerous aspects of the game that cling strongly to the Tron world, so a lot of gamers may find the experience frustrating due to a lack of common action FPS gameplay elements. Those of you willing to try something fresh and unique will surely appreciate TRON 2.0 for its quality design and excellent narrative that deserves the attention of every true sci-fi fan.

The framerate issues are a shame, because in every other respect Tron 2.0 is a neat piece of work. Nearly everything the game tries is accomplished with style and apparent ease, and quality and originality is evident throughout. Once public servers are running, we'll be first in line to try the disc tournaments and light-cycle grids which come as their very own sub-games. Until then, we'll stay busy burning our retinas with gorgeous neon geometry in the single-player campaign.

I’d like to give Tron a 9.5. Because that’s what it probably deserves outside of the light cycle and jumping fetishes. But since I can’t just excise the bad parts from the splendidly good, I can’t give it a 9.5. So. –1 for the excessive jumping. Light cycles drop down the game a bit because of the way they just get flung about. It really kicks you out of the continuity of the game. A -.2 for that…So, all tolled 8.3. (In case you wondering why there’s such a big disparity in the general scores and the overall.)

Game Revolution
Tron 2.0 uploads a serious dose of style into the FPS scene and is easily recommended to fans of the genre. The subpar AI and annoying platform segments hold it back a little, though the great delivery and lengthy, engrossing Campaign keep it ahead of the curve, so check it out.

Gamesmania
Naja, ein richtiger Meilenstein ist Tron 2.0 wohl nur in Sachen Optik geworden und selbst in dieser Hinsicht besteht noch Diskussionsbedarf. Mir persönlich sind die realen Level aus Jedi Academy oder Chrome immer noch lieber als Monoliths Computerwelt. Dabei hat das Spiel auch inhaltliche Qualitäten, denn dem renommierten Team ist zweifelsohne ein anspruchsvoller, atmosphärisch dichter Titel gelungen. Wer über frustige Stellen hinwegsehen kann und von den typischen Weltraum- oder WW2-Szenarien die Nase voll hat, der sollte Tron 2.0 eine Chance geben.

Als je een fan van de film bent of een keer wat anders wil, dan zit je absoluut snor met TRON 2.0. Ben je een hardcore shooter fan dan is dit waarschijnlijk te omslachtige kost. het is ook bepaald geen game voor de gemiddelde huis, tuin en keuken gamer. Je moet de moeite nemen om je in een game te verdiepen en affectie met de materie is geen overbodige luxe. maar het allerbelangrijkste is dat je open-minded bent en niet terugdeinst voor iets wat je niet kent. Artistiek is TRON 2.0 van hoogstaand nivo. Monolith heeft de film op zeer fraaie wijze naar een game weten om te zetten en wij weten uit ervaring dat de vertaalslag van film naar game over het algemeen tot bedroevende resultaten heeft geleid. Maar het belangrijkste komt nog en dat is dat TRON 2.0 geïnspireerd is. En vergeet niet dat dit laatste een belangrijker criterium is voor een goede game dan de uitvoering zelf.

Wham! gaming
Well there’s good and there’s bad – so where does TRON 2.0 stand in the grand scheme of gaming? It won’t win game of the year when it’s time to tally the votes for 2003, but don’t be surprised if it’s one of the highest selling games regardless. The same reason that will keep this game from being game of the year, will also give it great sales: TRON 2.0 has something for everyone. It doesn’t try to blow away any one particular segment of the gaming public, but offers enough for everyone to warrant picking it up. It’s not often I say this, the hardcore audience may be vocal with the problems, but it won’t stop TRON 2.0 from selling millions.

I just watched the original TRON again to refresh my memory, mostly because I had remembered the movie as being so different and exciting. And while I still liked it, and it's still quite different than any other movie that has ever been released in concept and art style, it definitely wasn't as exciting as I remember it. Maybe my childish fascination with the art and the fun I remember having throwing dishes around skewed my memory a bit... I don't know. Unfortunately TRON 2.0 is sitting much the same way with me. I'm looking at it fondly because I enjoyed the story, presentation, and beautiful artwork, but the game itself wasn't exactly the most exciting gameplay experience I've ever had on the PC.

They never rewarded Ennio Morricone for any of his marvellous scores. They sent the sublime Brief Encounter home empty-handed. They doggedly refused to recognise the directorial talents of Hitchcock, Kubrick or Peckinpah. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have indeed made some grotesque mistakes over the years, but perhaps none more grievous than failing to nominate Tron in the visual effects and art direction categories. In terms of character and script, it might have been forgettable, but the extraordinary combination of live action, luminous backlit animation, groundbreaking CGI and stunning Syd Mead/Moebius sci-fi styling remains to this day one of the most striking artistic visions ever committed to celluloid.

GameSpot (Belgium/Netherlands)
Net zoals de originele film is Tron 2.0 een onevenwichtige mix van goede, ongewone en ronduit slechte ingrediënten. Het spel leunt wel erg dicht aan bij z'n inspiratiebron, en die blijkt na 20 jaar toch wel ernstig verkleurd. Aan de andere kant is het spel voor de hardcore fans een absolute en nostalgische aanrader...

GameSpot
The 1982 film Tron may not hold up by today's standards, but it was a revelation for anyone who grew up during the video game boom of the early '80s. The movie was filled with vivid computer-generated graphics, and it put the lead character first in a real arcade and then in neon-lit cyberspace, where anthropomorphic "programs" faced off in video-game-style challenges. For young gamers, at the time, watching Tron was like dying and going to cinematic heaven. Tron gave birth to some fun games back in the day, and now Monolith brings you Tron 2.0 for the PC. Like the film, Tron 2.0 treads a fine line between cool and corny, and, also like the film, it often stumbles into the latter. Like the movie, the game also boasts a unique visual style. However, despite its great look and some exciting moments, Tron 2.0 is a fairly conventional and uneven shooter.

Un FPS très classique qui intègre heureusement quelques phases d'action originales, le tout mâtiné d'un soupçon d'aventure. Mais surtout, l'ambiance de Tron est merveilleusement bien retranscrite.

It's a shame that Tron 2.0's prospects were damaged by a month-long delay in an empty summer when the game could have sold happily to bored gamers everywhere, especially over the summer bank holiday. By now the game will have dropped in price slightly. Download any of the demos first if you're unsure, but Tron 2.0 is that different to any first person shooter released this year (a further step from, for example, the cel-shaded XIII) that it warrants investigation if you're bored with games of the moment. Much like the movie, the ideas come across well even if in some areas, the final execution wasn't perfect.

Det kan tyckas att jag klankar ned lite väl mycket på Tron 2.0, men det beror i hög grad på att jag hade stora förhoppningar på spelet och utvecklarna Monolith. Hade de vågat ta ut svängarna lite mer, satsat mer på handlingen och undvikit snårskogen av utdragna uppdrag hade Tron 2.0 mycket väl kunnat bli ett av årets mest intressanta actionäventyrsspel till PC. Så sant som det är sagt.
