Movie games are always hit or miss. ``Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness'' was as easy to skip as the summer Lara Croft movie. But ``Tron 2.0'' is another story. This game is so good that I wish there were a new movie to go with this video game from Disney's Buena Vista Interactive.
``Tron 2.0,'' developed by Monolith Productions, is a follow-up to the Disney movie released in 1982. For many of us, the film was our first step inside the world of a computer. That story focused on hacker Kevin Flynn, played by Jeff Bridges, who was digitized into a parallel world inside a computer and then had to fight his way through video-game-like duels that involved throwing discs at enemies and racing with ``light cycles.'' He had to rescue the world from the evil Master Control Program. ``Tron 2.0'' carries on the story and refers back to the original.
This newest Tron has the same glowing colors throughout its surroundings as the movie. As such, it is a visual feast. You can soak in the scenery of pristine electronic corridors and really feel that you're coursing through the circuits of a vast computer.
