Gotta be one of the coolest rail shooters of all time just from its art direction alone. I love how the low poly models lend themselves perfectly to creating horrific masses of flesh and metal. It's also really exhilarating to play, once you get into the flow state of dodging, shooting, and parrying there's nothing else quite like it (other than the sequel of course). The Evangelion influence is extremely apparent, but my favorite way it manifests is in the color palettes, it captures the visual identity of some of the best moments in Eva better than most imitators could hope to.
