So far, the game has been subject to huge amounts of fan joy. Despite being a ContinuityReboot it uses the classic backstory of ''[[TransformersGenerationOne Generation One]]'' as the build-up point, every character possesses their well known personality and each story point reinforces the traditional Transformer saga themes. Everything else comes with modern sensibilities in both story plotting and visual designs. The characters have a look that carries the bulk of [[TransformersGenerationOne G1]] (with a bit of the ''War Within'' comics thrown in), the shifting pieces and complexity used by [[Film/TransformersFilmSeries the live-action movies]], and the sharp angles and proportions of ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated''.

* ComicBookFantasyCasting: Creator/FredTatasciore as Megatron seemed to be trying to emulate Creator/HugoWeaving's portrayal from the [[Film/{{Transformers}} live-action movies]]. Likewise, as the narrator, Creator/SteveBlum seemed to be emulating ''[[TransformersGenerationOne G1]]'' narrator, Victor Caroli.

* TranslationConvention: Spoken Cybertronian is rendered in English, while written Cybertronian is kept largely untranslated. The exception is the preview text that opens each mission, which translates from Cybertronian to English as the [[SteveBlum narrator]] reads it.

* RecycledInSpace: The gameplay has so far been described as being akin to ''GearsOfWar'', but with giant shape-shifting alien robots on their home planet.

* [[XMeetsY W Meets X Meets Y Meets Z...]]: Seriously, it's kinda tough to pin down what it exactly took ideas from to mix together.

Added DiffLines:

* RegeneratingHealth: The health bar is split into several blocks, a partially drained block will refill on its own but fully drained ones can only be refilled by picking up energon cubes.

* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: {{Troy Baker}}'s Jetfire clearly has ''some'' sort of accent compared to his [[UsefulNotes/AmericanAccents American-accented]] comrades, but there is some debate as to whether that accent is meant to be [[UsefulNotes/BritishAccents British]] or [[UsefulNotes/AustralianAccent Australian]]. The fact that incarnations of Jetfire have had both accents in previous ''Transformers'' fiction[[labelnote:*]](''[[Film/{{Transformers}} Revenge of the Fallen]]'' Jetfire had a Yorkshire accent, while ''Anime/TransformersCybertron'' Jetfire sounded Aussie)[[/labelnote]] doesn't help. ([[WordOfGod According to Baker]], Jetfire's accent is a "standard" English accent that has been intentionally mutated to sound less "posh" -- so more British than Australian, but not really either.)

* WarIsHell: Not since ''TransformersTheMovie'' has warfare between robots been so heartbreaking and ''horrifying'' to watch. This trend is continued in its sequel ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime''
