XBox Front (Jan 25, 2005)
Sagt euch der Name Tron etwas? Die Meisten dürften diese Frage wohl mit Nein beantworten und somit kann der Name des 1982 erschienen Kinofilms trotz seines Kultstatus kaum mehr für riesige Absätze sorgen. Entsprechend muss Tron 2.0: Killer App mit so konservativen Tugenden wie Gameplay punkten.
Bottom line is Tron 2.0 is a solid FPS that offers the same solid and unique sci-fi experience as it did in the PC days minus a little excessive load time and minor graphic flaws. The question is can it get out there and make it's statement with so many other big-time FPS shooters hitting the market right now like "Metroid Prime," "Kill Zone," "Unreal Tournament," and of course the esteemed "Halo 2"? Only time will tell. Still though, this a solid game for any hardcore fan of the movie and something different for all those sci-fi geeks out there. This one racks up a respectable 4 Gin gems for its unique and futuristic gameplay experience.

Proceed::Fazit -> Tron2.0 Killer App entführt euch in eine phänomenale Spielwelt, die vor witzigen Einfällen und genialen Design-Ideen nur so strotzt - Fans des Films werden sich pudelwohl fühlen! Aber Vorsicht: Es handelt sich nicht um einen typischen Ego-Shooter, sondern eher um ein Action-Adventure mit Rollenspiel-Touch, Jump&Run- und leichten Rennspiel-Anleihen, obwohl die Sprung-Einlagen mehr Nerven kosten als Spaß machen. Die Duelle gestalten sich hierbei packender als in vielen anderen Shootern, da die meisten Gegner eine echte Herausforderung sind - nur mehr Abwechslung und eine genauere Steuerung hätten sicherlich gut getan! Verknüpft wird das abgedrehte Szenario durch eine gute Geschichte, die für rund 15 Stunden Spielspaß sorgt. Aber in dieser Zeit hockt ihr ständig vor nervenden Lade-Bildschirmen und auch die Bedienung des zu unübersichtlichen Interfaces ist unnötig umständlich.

In all, Xbox gamers should take a look at Tron 2.0: Killer App. It's definitely one of the most unique first-person shooters on the system whether you're judging it by gameplay, graphics or sound. The gameplay is a solid mix of shoot-'em-up action, stealth, exploration, with a surprising amount of platforming thrown in. That last part might bother many FPS fans, but for me it was an interesting and sometimes rewarding part of the designer's subtle exploration efforts.

Adaptation réussie du jeu qui nous avait déjà convaincus sur PC, cette mouture Xbox de Tron 2.0 aurait gagné à profiter davantage des longs mois nécessaires à son développement pour intégrer plus de particularités inédites. Le soft n'en reste pas moins tout à fait à la hauteur, et devrait tirer son épingle du jeu malgré la présence d'excellents FPS sur Xbox.

Es ist mir ein Rätsel, warum so viele Xbox-Umsetzungen misslingen - vor allem da Microsofts Konsole eine so PC-nahe Plattform ist. Zuletzt enttäuschten die Xbox-Fassungen von Jedi Academy und Unreal 2, jetzt das gleiche mit Tron 2.0: Sowohl graphisch als auch in Punkto Steuerung kann die Umsetzung weder mit Halo 2 oder The Chronicles of Riddick, noch mit dem PC-Original mithalten. Aber selbst da schieden sich ja bereits die Geister: Für manche ist Tron 2.0 ein Kultspiel, das mit einem innovativen Szenario und außergewöhnlicher Grafik aufwartet, für die anderen ein steriler Shooter mit frustigen Sprungeinlagen. Da die Xbox-Version trotz aller Bemühungen eher eine Verschlimmbesserung des Originals ist, sollten nur die zugreifen, die von dem Stil der Optik absolut begeistert sind.

In the end, Tron 2.0 feels as if the developers were so focused on recreating the world of the movie that they forgot to make the single player experience fun. If you're a Tron fan with friends, Tron 2.0 is the ideal place for your dream disc and lightcycle tournaments, though single player might make you want to use the game disc as a frisbee instead.

It’s unfortunate that an otherwise excellent game has been hampered by a sub-par transition to the Xbox. I’m a big fan of the Tron universe, and had a lot of anticipation for this title. It was only after hours of playing through exhaustively long load times, unimpressive graphics, and frustrating combat targeting that I was forced to conclude my general dislike of the entire experience.
GameSpy (Nov 09, 2004)
It was no shock that the sequel to Disney's Tron emerged as a PC game; the fact that it was so good, on the other hand, was surprising. Monolith worked some magic with the story that once digitized Bruce Boxleitner. Its game was striking in every respect: the visuals and music both honored and updated the original designs, while the gameplay made good on the original premise of users stuck in their own computers. Now Climax has bumped the game over to the Xbox as Tron 2.0 Killer App, and a couple of quirks aside, it's done a fine job.
GameSpot (Nov 09, 2004)
Tron 2.0 was originally released on the PC last year, where it served as a sequel of sorts to the sci-fi film from 1982. What distinguished the game most was its highly stylized look. Much like the film, everything in it was bathed in a characteristic colored glow. As the game has transitioned to the Xbox platform, the developer has seen fit to add a number of new multiplayer modes to it. But underneath its flashy exterior, Tron 2.0: Killer App is still a fairly bland shooter whose few memorable moments are overshadowed by unimaginative level design and far too many load screens.

Tron 2.0 never seems to make it out of the gate. The combat is fun, but the AI is terrible and the primary weapon is faulty. The design is cool, but each stage starts to look the same. The multiplayer is fun, but good freaking luck finding someone to play it with you. With so many great games on the market this holiday season, there is absolutely no good reason to buy a lightly updated game that came out on the PC over a year ago. Wait for the bargain bins.

We've used the word a few times during the review, but "chore" probably sums up TRON 2.0 if we were to plunge to our most uncharitable. Were it not for the novelty of the unique (but actually quite uninspiring) visuals, we'd be left talking about a first-person shooter that tries to do things differently, has some nice ideas, but evidently doesn't have the combat mechanics to provide the hook to drag you through the game. When Monolith reflects on why TRON 2.0 didn't set the charts on fire, the blame lays squarely at the fact that it just isn't a great deal of fun to play. However cultish its appeal may be to those that fell in love with the movie, it can't disguise the game's flaws. Stood next to any number of FPSs it looks refreshing and promising, but in the final analysis it doesn't even get the basics right making this little more of a curiosity purchase than a killer app.
