Tron 2.0

So I read that this game is about to come out for the Mac. I haven't purchased a Mac game in more than a year, but this one interests me. Can those of you who played it tell me if it's worth playing? Does it offer anything new, beyond the Tron aesthetics? I'm a big Tron fan, will I be upset about what they've done, or will it be cool to play the first Tron game in 20 years?

I'm a huge fan of both the Tron movie and Tron 2.0. The game has its typical FPS moments (find this key to open this door, jumping puzzles, etc) but it really has a fresh take on the genre. The disc weapon is incredibly cool. Many of the other weapons are, IMHO, useless (if not cool to play around with) during the course of the game because the disc is so flexible and powerful.

 

The visuals are incredible and expand on the original movie quite a bit without detracting from it at all. Voice acting is good and I can't recall any embarrasing moments. The story is well done, though the ending leaves a little to be desired.

 

I can't recommend this game enough, especially to any fan of the Tron story.

I actually didn't know, so I went over to macgamer and found an article about it:

 

The Tron 2.0 game is being developed by Monolith Productions, using their LithTech engine, the same engine that powered No One Lives Forever and MacPlay have picked up the rights to publish the Mac version.

 

I have no idea if that's a good or a bad thing.

You're in good hands, Ed. Monolith was the original developer on the PC.

 

I've played through the first 3 levels on the PC. Just like you, I was late to the party, but I'm enjoying it very much :D

Scratch that, I found a different article on Maccentral (a more reliable source) that says this:

 

Macintosh conversion of Tron 2.0 was handled by TransGaming Technologies, the same company that Aspyr Media has worked with to do Mac conversions of SpyHunter and Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb.

 

Again, no idea if this is good or bad.
