Between Disney's 1982 classic Tron and its flash 2010 sequel lies Tron: Evolution, the video game that seeks to bridge the gap between the two films. This is one shaky bridge.
Tron: Evolution puts players in the digital shoes of Anon (short for Anonymous), a faceless system monitor that gets caught up in the struggle between the original movie's hero Kevin Flynn and Clu, a program created in Flynn's likeness to represent him inside the digital world of The Grid. Clu has gone rogue, and it'll take all of Anon's free-running parkour skills and disc combat proficiency to set up the plot for Tron: Legacy.
Players intrigued by Tron's glowing digital world will find plenty of backstory lurking within Evolution's extras, while devotees of Prince of Persia-style action adventure games might enjoy the action, as long as they don't mind repetition.
