Ahh, good, SD1, you're not referring to me then. I don't have a foregone conclusion that the game will be awful. I just have a feeling it won't be one of my favorite games to play. As for the lore of T:L versus the original, there are some things that weren't respected... but fortunately, there is a lot they did respect. I'm thankful for that.

I would fall into that category. But I still plan to buy it at launch, mainly because it is a new Tron world to explore, I kind've want to visit the places we'll see in the movie... and to fill in the story gaps between Tron and T:L. I look forward to exploring and seeing what's there... experiencing the universe firsthand. Bouncing off of walls, jumping 20 feet in the air and having wave after wave of guys come at me, however, are not the parts I'm particularly looking forward to.
I'm not sure I want to play it before watching the movie. Do I want to risk having some of the cool places in the movie spoiled by seeing them in the game first?
What is everyone's plans? Playing the game before seeing the movie? If so, are you worried it might spoil some areas, characters or other things you would otherwise experience for the first time during the film? For example, I like the pure energy source pool area in Tron. Tranquil. Unique. If we had seen it in a video game before seeing in the movie, running there from a different part of a contiguous "level", would that have spoiled a bit of the wonder and solitude that's felt there? Sometimes I don't like the dots connected... sometimes I want my imagination to connect the dots.
