Connor Beaton writes: "I've never been as huge a fan of animé as some of my friends and colleagues have been. Unlike a lot of other gamers and otaku across the globe, I've never even watched a single episode of Escaflowne or had a One Piece marathon into the early morning. However, there's something about Neon Genesis Evangelion that's always attracted me to it. Perhaps it's the deep, convoluted plot, or the well-developed three-dimensional characters – hell, maybe it's just the giant robots – but it's one of the few animé that I watch and love.
"A few days ago I decided to widen my review demographic by expanding to import games. So far, not a single Neon Genesis Evangelion game has been localised and released in an English-speaking territory, so being such a huge fan of the franchise, I thought: why not review an Evangelion game?"
