I actually like visual novels… Well I like some visual novels. I think the medium works well if you have a good story, but in the case of Tron, it’s jus a little off.
There are a few elements in Tron Identity that are more games like, but I think it’s important to note that, this is Tron! The franchise is literally about videogames, so making something that is almost all about the story, and has no gameplay is kind of weird. But it could still be good, so I guess that comparing it to a cookbook without any recipes is a little unfair. Though, to be honest, I would probably read the cookbook in the comic.
