The sci-fi film Tron features an incredible "Discs of Tron" fight sequence. A game based on this sequence entered the arcades soon after the film's release, but passed into obscurity. But now, it's back, revamped and with lots of new features that make it delight to play. Graphics and sound effects are excellent. In fact, it's so good it wins out Game of the Month title!
Everything happens so fast, you need plenty of practice - but once you get into it, Disc is very enjoyable. Graphics are well animated, particularly the characters, and there are some effective sampled screams when someone dies. The sampled music in the intro sequence is the best I've heard in any ST game. A sure bet for many hours of glued-to-the-screen gameplay.
Sort of Tron-esque disc throwing game where the idea is to maim your opponent. Frantic frisbee throwing for psychotics.
One thing Disc isn't overburdened with though is anything that provides long-term interest. It's bound to give a good blast of instant excitement, but make the most of this as tedium's just around the corner.
Hands up, all that remember the old Discs of Tron coin-op? Well, Disc is practically identical to it in most respects - simply try to destroy your enemy by hitting him with a disc! Anyone yearning for nostalgia will enjoy this but, alas, not for long.
Admittedly, there are some attractive backgrounds and the animation's quite good, but the whole game is just too shallow to warrant a £24.95 price tag. Even in the present budget market, Disc would find itself under attack from far better value games.
Das futuristische ST-Frisbee hat klaren Tetriss-Charakter: Spielen, bis die Augen tränen und „immer ‘mal wieder“! Leider hat Discs einen
Haken: Fast das gesamte Geschehen gab es vor sechs Jahren in besserer Ausführung als Spielautomat. Discs of Tron, frei nach dem bahnbrechenden Walt Disney-Film,
ist der unsichtbare Pate. Wen aber diese Scheiben-Bremse nicht stört, der wird etliche hektische Stunden im Discaido-Stadion verbringen!
