TRON: LEGACY focuses on the right things -- Light Cycles and Recognizers -- but suffers from poor controls and apparent game bugs that cripple the title. Driving and racing Light Cycles can be a breathtaking experience, but because the controls are slow to respond to your actions, it's akin to a drunk driver hopping onto a motorcycle. You'll wobble across the road and bump into walls regularly. The game's shooting sections -- using those Recognizers -- are fun, but again stumble, since you're not able to control the vehicles as precisely as you would like to. The game's multiplayer option is one of its stronger elements, as playing against a live opponent is more fun than challenging the app. And visually, the game is quite impressive. With more polishing, this is a title that could have life long after the movie is gathering dust in your DVD collection.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
