Ive been back and forth on whether or not to drop 6 bucks on TRON for XBL. I DL'd the demo and it was... well it was TRON, which isnt a bad thing but the control seemed difficult.

I was curious about what the Enhanced Graphic mode looked like since they left it off on the demo. Usually they have it on, which makes me wonder if the mode is worthless.

Anyone pick this up?

I would have bought tron except for the controls. I found them to be pretty poor. I think it's turning alot of people off. you may want to check www.majornelson.com and look at the comments in there to see if people actually bought/tried the enhanced graphics.

I felt the same way about the controls. Thanks for the link. I'm blocked from the link here at work (tyrants!) so I wont be able to check till later.

I agree, controls are horrible in this game. Enhanced graphics won't matter, can't put lipstick on a pig.

The controls were horrible in the original arcade machine, too, for what it's worth.

I love buying the classic arcade games but the 'feel' of the controls were just too bad for me to buy this one.

I had the same problems with the controls, but my buddy told me to go into the options menu and go into the controls and choose option C. It's the one with the special aim in caps. Worked out much better than it originally was.

The controls weren't horrible on the original arcade cabinet, and switch to Controls C "Absolute Aim" for better control.

I tried it and was hoping it would be good because I spent many quarters on this game at the arcade - but the controls were too bad. I may try it again with option C like others above have mentioned.

The enhanced graphics are very minimal mostly just color changes, like in the tower instead of solid block colors they blend in, and yes the controls are terrible. Save your money.

Boy, was I excited when I saw it show up on Xbox live. I had good memories of that game in the arcade as child. Then I downloaded the demo and yikes. Not as much fun as I remembered.
