* UnexpectedCharacter: Mixmaster's return was unexpected, as was the inclusion of toy-line character Stratosphere.


!! The game provides examples of:



* WeHardlyKnewYe: [[spoiler: Warpath and the Aerialbots are there to just be bosses for Megatron and Starscream. Warpath is more egregious since he's only there to give the Autobots a chassis in the Tank multiplayer class.]]

* GenreSavvy: Megatron is ''pissed'' when Starscream brings a piece of the Mech Tech back to base, knowing all too well the Autobots would place tracking devices in their own


'''''Transformers: Dark of the Moon''''' is a 2011 tie-in video game to the [[Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon 2011 film of the same name]], set in the ''Franchise/TransformersFilmSeries''. It is developed by Creator/HighMoonStudios, fresh off the success of ''VideoGame/TransformersWarForCybertron''. This game incorporates many of the elements of ''War for Cybertron'', such as Multiplayer classes, enemy types, and lengthy campaign missions, but also builds on it. In a departure from ''War for Cybertron'', this game features only one playable character per level (as opposed to three for each ''War for Cybertron'' mission), allowing each level to be tailored for the playable character. Much of the voice cast returns from ''War for Cybertron'' to voice the movie incarnations of their characters (for example, Creator/FredTatasciore voices ''Movie'' Megatron and Ratchet, when he voiced the ''Aligned'' counterparts of the characters in ''War for Cybertron'') Creator/PeterCullen and Creator/JessHarnell are the only actors from the films to return as the voices of their on-screen characters.

* ClimaxBoss: Optimus is the penultimate boss of the game, coinciding with the successful destruction of the Decepticon base, and soon the advent of the Decepticons plans in ''Dark of the Moon''.



* GatlingGood: Ironhide's Heavy Iron cannons as well as those used by the bigger enemies qualify. Optimus also uses his guns seen in ''Dark of the Moon'' in his flight mode, but sadly, you don't get to use them here.



* ILoveNuclearPower: Megatron can sprinkle Autobot foes with plutonium, which encourages hungry hatchlings to devour them.

The story, which is mostly in line with the films, though not canon, is that the Decepticons have been quiet for the past few years, making Optimus Prime and the Autobots grow wary of the ceasefire. Soon, however, the Decepticons return with a vengeance, and the Autobots set out to foil their schemes once again, albeit this time, they're stumbling on a conspiracy that's the greatest threat they've ever faced.
----
* AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent: Starscream's level is almost entirely in the air.
* AscendedExtra: Mixmaster was just a background character or Devastator's head in ''Revenge of the Fallen''; here, he's the main antagonist of Ironhide's level and leads the Decepticon invasion of Detroit.
* BadassBoast: When Sideswipe reports the incoming Decepticons' attempts to kill them, Optimus says "They are welcome to try!"
* CallForward: Megatron's all too correct when he swears that Ironhide will pay for getting one over him...
* ContinuityNod: Megatron is still unable to transform after the heavy injuries he sustained in [[Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen Egypt]].
** Megatron also mentions his icy imprisonment at the hands of the Americans.
* {{Expy}}: The enemy classes are in practice the same as the ones that appeared in ''War for Cybertron'', minus the [[TheJuggernaut Destroyers]].
* GenreSavvy: Megatron is ''pissed'' when Starscream brings a piece of the Mech Tech back to base, knowing all too well the Autobots would place tracking devices in their own
* GutturalGrowler: Creator/FredTatasciore brings the video games' portrayal of Megatron's voice more in line with his on-screen portrayal by Creator/HugoWeaving.
* HoldTheLine: Several times, but most notable in Mirage's mission when he, Bumblebee and Sideswipe must hold out until Major Reynolds' air support arrives.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Mixmaster, the three Aerialbots, Stratosphere, and Warpath.]]
* OrcusOnHisThrone: Megatron monitors and oversees operations from base, but he also does his own work, as he alerts Soundwave to an old Sector 7 base he's uncovered.
* PrecisionFStrike: Early into Ironhide's level, a soldier you pass encourages you to "give 'em hell", which can be jarring coming off of ''War for Cybertron'' or ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'', but compared to what's been said in the films themselves, it's faint.
* UnexpectedCharacter: Mixmaster's return was unexpected, as was the inclusion of toy-line character Stratosphere.
* VerbalBackspace: If the player scores a good kill as Starscream, he'll shout out, "For the glory of Starscre-err, Megatron!!!"
* TheVoice: Wheeljack is your MissionControl for the majority of the game, but he never appears in game, only speaking to you via comm links.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: [[spoiler: Warpath and the Aerialbots are there to just be bosses for Megatron and Starscream. Warpath is more egregious since he's only there to give the Autobots a chassis in the Tank multiplayer class.]]
