Most Gamers Were brought up on Tron, thinking it pointed to a bright future of virtual reality and interactive entertainment, in spite of the fact neither existed except in dreams and Fighting Fantasy gamebooks.
Eventually that future was realised some 20 years later with Tron 2.0, which happened to be a bloody good shooter, even if it was largely ignored by the great gaming masses.
No such problems we hope for third-person action game Tron: Evolution will be quickly followed up with a pacy-looking movie TRON: Legacy as Evolution is its prequel). The danger is of course that this game is rigidly part of the movie marketing assault, which is never a good sign, although developer Propaganda Games seem aptly named to handle the pressure. And it's going to star the voice of the original Tron himself - Bruce 'Babylon 5' Boxleitner.
Although we are preparing for heartcrushing disappointment due to previously-mentioned movie tie-in shiteness, the inclusion of light cycles, neon-piped catsuits and the inevitable over-use of the phrase "end of line" is enough to keep our hopes high.
