* NoProblemWithLicensedGames: ''Tron 2.0'' was originally the ''official'' sequel to the first movie, instead of an interactive rehash.

Added DiffLines:

* DisneyFication: Well, it is a Creator/{{Disney}} universe, and it warrants a Teen rating while most first person shooters are RatedMForMoney. Monolith managed it by making liberal use of the franchise's BloodlessCarnage, the fact that Jet is [[JustAMachine killing Programs]], and even hinting DeathIsCheap [[spoiler: with Mercury's restoration from backup]]. They also avoid having Team Bradley [[spoiler: kill humans by various dodges. Thorne is killed by the Kernel, the Wraiths are kicked out to analog when defeated, and the TerribleTrio end up imprisoned on a hard disk]]. It's only when you [[FridgeHorror think about it a bit]] that anything actually becomes disturbing. Oddly enough, this makes this game not only LighterAndSofter as far as FPS games, it's also LighterAndSofter then ''Film/TronLegacy'' and even ''WesternAnimation/TronUprising'' by a large degree.

** An army of drones working for an evil corporation that are uploaded to loot any data and secrets they can grab and are forcibly knocked out of cyberspace, only for the next batch to be sent in? Gee, sounds a lot like the Sixers from ''Film/ReadyPlayerOne''

** On a meta level; [[OrwellianRetcon Disney deciding to make the game]] [[CanonDiscontinuity and its related material non-canon]] (and the fanbase pretty much ignoring the dictate as an inverse of FanonDiscontinuity) is happening again with the StarWarsExpandedUniverse.

** Also straddling the line between HilariousInHindsight or HarsherInHindsight: The rocky relationship between Alan and Jet can seem oddly similar to the way [[TronUprising Tron and Beck]] work together.
** A second weaponry example with the Rod Primitive (the lightcycle baton). Mercury shows Jet how it could be used as a nasty improvised shock weapon. [[{{Film/TronLegacy}} Sam?]] [[WrongGenreSavvy Tried to use it as]] [[StarWars a lightsaber]]. Right idea, wrong implementation.

* UnfortunateCharacterDesign: A common complaint from players is that Alan's sprite looks very little like Boxleitner (far too short and thin for an actor that is 6' 3" and about 200 lbs), and even looks more haggard and aged than the actor did in ''Film/TronLegacy'' that came out seven years later.

* HellIsThatNoise:
** The [=DataWraith's=] chatter. It even freaks the programs out.
** The Finders' chirp and chatter, especially when Jet doesn't have his disk.

** Taking out the stabilizer bits on the Datawraith cruiser. You have to hit the target ''just right'' with a disc shot, and then ''run for your life'' because it instantly spawns two Wraiths up in the carrier itself raining continuous fire on you with Mesh blasters. Worse, they are at a far distance and use their TeleportSpam to make them insanely hard to hit. (The Prankster Bit removes ''that'' issue, however.)
** The first time you engage a Seeker is easy enough, right? The data worm is weakened, one wave of three Resource Hogs appears between "phases" of the fight, piece-'o-cake even if you are down to using Primitive Disc. But then you have to sink a ship, but before that you got to fight a fully powered Seeker while DataWraiths spawns nonstop, and even at full power all you do is scratch the Seeker to death. Oh, and be mindful that being anywhere near a Seeker is instant de-resolution.

'''You'd Expect''': F-Con to wait for the merger to quietly go through, the new bosses to force Alan Bradley into early retirement (with a generous severance package), and quietly appropriate the AI [=Ma3a=] and the Shiva Mark II laser as company property, launching the Datawraith project beneath everyone's notice.\\

** Thorne breaking into the dance club can be frustrating as well, since his attacks have splash damage in a very small space ''and'' there are zealots all over the place as well AND you have to protect [=MA3A=] as well.

** The second comes when Jet and Mercury split up to cover more ground. The reformat is closing in, there's not much time. Jet, Byte, and Ma3a are on the platform leading to the exit port with nanos to spare...and [[spoiler: Mercury sacrifices herself to fend off the Z-Lots so they don't overrun the party.]]
** The next one comes on the antiquated Encom server where you realize, to your horror, that getting Ma3a to a few minutes of safety [[NiceJobBreakingItHero condemed the entire server]] [[spoiler: including I-No]] to death, and there's nothing you can do to stop it.

** It looks like everything's going to be okay. The Tron upgrade is being compiled to Ma3a, the Z-Lots have been chased off for now, and it looks like Jet's earned a breather. But then [[spoiler: Alan warns Jet ''too late'' not to compile that code, and Thorne crashes the party with an army of Z-Lots]].
** OK, Jet's putting up a good fight. He might just be able to chase [[spoiler: Thorne]] off. But that's when the code finishes compiling and [[spoiler: the corrupted Ma3a emerges ''"All Users must be terminated!"'' She attacks and wounds Thorne, ''murders'' Byte by casually backhanding him into the wall where he shatters, and only [[FightingFromTheInside fights the corruption long enough]] to tell Jet to ''run'']]

** A case could also be made for Alan and Ma3a, especially considering that Ma3a is, at least in part, a VirtualGhost of Lora.

* FollowTheLeader: While it's certainly an original game, it uses many of the same gameplay elements as ''VideoGame/HalfLife1''.



** The level of having to snipe [=ICP=]s from a tower has also caused players to rip their hair out in frustration. Your sniper rifle uses most of your energy bar at that point, there's a very limited opportinity to refuel, and if a single ICP gets to Ma3a, you have to do the whole thing over again.
