Now that the game is live and I've had a few days to play it, I'm updating my rating. This review will be quite wordy. (Edit as of 20th of April)
This game is fucking great for any Eva fan, you're going to get a lot out of this. It sells itself on the interactions between the characters for a reason; the episodes channel what made the quieter parts of the series so wonderful. My favourite storyline so far is Flowers on the Windowsill, the Rei and Hikari cross episode.
Graphically, the game is quite impressive, although I suspect most phones will not be able to run it at full quality. The 3D models really do look like the characters, and while not all of the animation is seamless and perfect in the cutscenes, they really do show off how full of life they are. It's pretty stunning for a mobile game.
I'll admit I'm really easy to please when it comes to gameplay but I genuinely do think the game is a lot of fun. Considering they're going to be updating it constantly with the new Seasons introducing more characters, units and Angels (and fixing issues with balance currently present) I don't think I'll get tired of it for a while. Battles are short and snappy and a lot of fun although I am constantly getting my ass kicked by better players than me LOL. I also don't own the Readcon controller so I can't judge that aspect of it.
I usually hate city building games but this one doesn't feel too gruelling. I would attribute that to the fact that it is primarily NOT a city building game and waiting for buildings to finish will not impact your ability to play the main part of the game (the battles). I wasn't super enthusiastic about it and I am just starting so I may grow to hate it but as it stands, no problems here. I don't feel any urge to spend currency to finish them.

As for the cons:
The one thing I DO worry about is the Containers. You get one every time you win in Battlefields mode and you can have four at a time. There are no options to speed up containers opening yet aside from using the premium Gem currency and some of them can take two hours to open. That being said, if you don't care about not getting some potential rewards (all wins also give XP, so you aren't completely missing out) and just want to play, it's not that big of a deal.
The game's aggressive and frankly exorbinant monetization can be attributed to the rough history of Eva mobage - most of them only last a year before shutting down due to monerary concerns. I am hoping this game does not meet the same fate. Personally I won't be spending any money on the microtransactions, and the game seems rather generous anyway. I have almost all of the support characters with the discounted gacha roll they gave us to start and a few days of playtime. I won one of the support figures out of a crane machine and might get the controller after the world stops being shut down 😄

Please also be aware that at the time of writing the game has only just launched out of it's maintenance period and is currently doing an hour of bonus maintenance a day (with compensations to players) to fix some issues present with rewards not being given out properly as well as some minor other bugs. Nothing that I can't be patient with, though.
Sorry for the long ass post I'm an eva otaku at heart LOL
(BTW The low rating on this game is not a testament to its quality, the children on here were losing their fucking minds over the servers having a rough launch)

As of now, the game is just "good". It doesn't present anything that makes the game too crazy or special, its just a nice, simple mobile game starring Evangelion characters. The combat is fine, but can be frustrating when your attacks don't input when you're facing an opponent with low connection. It also slightly forces you to spend your gems on crates for better weapons, and if you decide not to, you'll get beaten over and over again by players who spend a lot on the game. I know there's supposed to be a story here, but since I am not able to understand it due to the game being Japanese only, I'm not too engaged in it. The game's nice to look at. The cinematics for the story and ultimates that you do with the Eva's are just great to look at. But the major problem that this game has is that it's not able to keep me coming back to it everyday for logins, missions, battles, etc. The lack of actual content is what bothers me and I don't find much of an excuse to keep playing, and I just wish there was just another activity that's fun or maybe they could add new Eva's and Pilots every couple of weeks instead of every month (That being since we didn't get Asuka or anything else for about a month and a half). Being an Evangelion fan, I was really hoping for this game to be something that I'd be playing for days on end, but in the end, it's another simple mobile game that's occasionally fun, but doesn't grab me enough to be all that into.

First of all the game is a lot of fun... Second their isnt a whole lot of content that makes up for the 3 Battle modes... The combat is actually quite good compared to other fighting games. The "story" is really good as I personaly love anything that has to do with Asuka, but from a non-bised point of view its lacking foundation or really any at all! The building feature is kinda weird and dosent really fit with in with the game. Right how the game feels amazing in combat everything but that is lacking... BUT BUT BUT I really hope this game turns out like Dragon Ball Legends and gets a lot of support as it seems like it could turn into a gem one day!!!( ^ω^)
