The Tron Evolution game is basically a prequel to the Tron Legacy movie, it tells the story of how the Grid and CLU came to be corrupted and why Kevin Flynn ended up stuck there unable to get back to the real world.
In terms of timeline, Tron takes place in 1982, Tron Evolution in the 1990s to 2000 and Tron Legacy in 2010. Although the game is a little short with 7 chapters in total, it is pretty challenging especially when you have to run on walls. The light cycle battles aren’t as easy as you think and you get to play with tanks as well.
Evolution is a third-person action game with racing and RPG elements incorporated. The game features both singleplayer and multiplayer modes. The basic gameplay focuses on acrobatics and combat. Player's movements are heavily parkour-influenced, while combat was inspired by capoeira.The game also features light cycle races.
Each cycle leaves a light trail that can destroy or "derezz" any enemy. Evolution features persistent character progression system, that lets players earn new levels and unlock new upgrades, both in multiplayer and singleplayer.
