Is the GBA version any good? I can't imagine the arcade ports work very well with those controls.

I haven't played it but I've seen pics of it and read some reviews. Generally it's getting good reviews for a GBA game. Some complaints I see are that the screen on Tron and DOT are stretched to fill the entire GBA screen. Another down point are the controls since the rotation of the joystick is now replaced by the L and R buttons which means no control over speed of movement. I can't imagine getting that far in the games without an analog control.

Anyone try the mac version of Tron? I was thinking about getting an Xbox just for Tron 2.0. That version looks really good and more arcade like than the PC version. I wonder if it will contain the original arcade as well.

I got Tron 2.0 for my G5 a couple of months ago, played through it... enjoyed it for the nostalgia, but not the linear gameplay.

I wrote a Wikipedia article about the game which may answer more questions about it for you (but be careful to avoid the spoilers if you don't want the plot revealed).
