Tron PSP???

on Tuesday, December, 21, 2010 7:30 AM
Does anyone have anything to say about the PSP version? Any gameplay videos or something? I'm almost done my 360 version, and want to pick up the PSP game.

(My Wii is busted and I don't have a DS)

I bought it in the PS Store (download) and it's fun... it starts in 1985 or so (not 1989 as the timeline says) but then it's just a collection of challenges that you need to finish - looks like Tron is training you -.

The challenges are: shooting aboard a Recognizer (hardest part so far), lightcycle race, lightcycle arena (modern), lightcycle arena (classic: 90 degree turns ony), tank battle and disc wars. I might be missing some other 3 that I can't remember right now.

In a way it reminds me of the Battle Mode and Mini-games that came with Tron 2.0: Killer App for the Gameboy, but with better graphics

I can't believe I overlooked this one when the games were released. I have a PSP, but haven't played it in a while. Are the graphics and all good? Sounds like its mainly like the Wii version, where you're competing in a series of games.

Here is some gameplay footage I found. Looks like Battle Grids but done in the style of Evolution.

I want to grab that game eventually. (I'd prefer a boxed copy rather than downloading it off of PSN!)

Awesome! Thanks for sharing. It does look like a mix of both games. I wonder what the overall plot of this one is and when it takes place. Also, I wonder what that part is at the 30 second mark in that video...

I haven't played much, but it starts with you being instructed by Flynn to contact Tron so that he can train you for the games. Then you jump into the challenges. It starts in 1985, dunno if later it will jump to 1989 as stated in the Timeline.

The part of the 30 second mark, it's a "puzzle" you have to solve to open doors. Pretty much like the "hacking" part in Killer App for the Gameboy.

Well, I got a Best Buy gift card for Christmas, so I used it to get TE for PSP. After playing it for a bit, I gotta say its not too bad. It does need some things though, like a difficulty setting or at least a difficulty ranking for each challenge since you can do them in any order. I'm an okay gamer, but I usually pick the easier difficulties on the first play through so I can see what the game is like and not get frustrated at dying and having to start over constantly. I've tried a few of the challenges and only placed 1st in one of them, which means I only unlocked 1 thing. It seems really hard to me, and it may just be me, but yeah, a difficulty setting would have been nice. Also being able to skip some of the opening scenes on some of the games would be nice too. The Recognizer one being the longest by far. But with that said, it is fun, and it'll give me something to work at and of course being a Tron fanatic helps. I'm not sure if your typical hard core gamer who's never heard of Tron before the new movie would like it. Like the Wii version, its definatly meant for multiplayer moreso than single.

Well, I got to the final match, and I have to say that its WAY too hard. The last match is between you and Clu alone in tanks. He has a double barrel that can take you out in two shots and you can't use the double barrel for some reason, so you're screwed. I just can't win. Meh.

I really like this game! It was a little easy for me at times, but some parts were so challenging they had me almost yelling at my psp xDDD.

Glad y'all are enjoying it - as mentioned on other threads, I'm working with Disney Interactive (gotta make sure I disclose ), so I'm happy to pass along any feedback. In the meantime, have you tried the Rectifier Disc Arena? You can unlock it by entering "Endofline" (no quote marks) in the code-entry section. Try it out!

The PSP version is the iPhone version with a few features added. A friend of mine bought it and beat it a day later. He told me it was not worth the $30 he payed for it.

Another friend of mine bought the iPhone version. It was 99 cents and he says it's amazing.

I have the DS version and I've seen the PSP version. They are very different games.
