Hidden Gems of the Gaming World is a new post series here on J Station X that talks about the games that you should buy (though probably won’t). This week’s post discusses how Disney’s Tron Evolution is going to be great but why the fact that it’s a movie game means that you probably won’t get it.

Tron. The new ultra-futuristic, CGI heavy, Disney movie sequel to the 80s film of the same name. It’s set in the world of a coin-operated arcade game and features an Oscar winner (Jeff Bridges), a handsome newcomer (Garrett Hedlund) and the hotness that is Olivia Wilde.
Right, that’s got you curious about the film, but J Station X is a video game blog.
Well, if you’ve been visiting JSX for a while or if you’re following me on Twitter, you’ll know that i am incredulously hyped up for the film but I’m also (only a little less) hyped up for the game based on it.

Tron Evolution is one of the lucky games that has the fortune of being based on a Disney film. I’ve written a post on this very here blog about the awesomeness of Disney movie tie-ins.
Disney consistently go overboard (in a good way and in every sense of the word) as if they’ve gone to the ends of the Earth to make their movie-games great and it works every time.
The graphics of Tron Evolution echo the beauty of the film (and of Olivia Wilde!) as if the film was combined with a pristine mirror of interactivity because despite a lack of 3D, which the film employs and a differing plot, the game seems to be exactly like the movie which is obviously what you want in a game based on a film.

The game again shows how Disney have stepped up their movie-game game so to speak as Tron Evolution even features PlayStation Move support. Amazing.
It’s unfair that this game might do badly because you will be too busy filling stockings with that First-Person-Shooter when really, you’d probably have a lot more fun running about in a virtual neon world, listening to Daft Punk because yes, playing the game lets you hear 2 of Daft Punk’s sure-to-be-absolutely-fantastic tracks from the film almost an entire month before its release.
I will hopefully have a review of the game up on the site at some point in the near future (not a guarantee) so keep your eyes peeled!
