The later part is has caused some controversy in fan circles, as it raises the question of how involved ''Evangelion''[='s=] creator, Creator/HideakiAnno, was with the involvement of the game, and how true to the show's canon the Classified Information should be seen as. According to all official sources, Anno was interviewed "extensively" by the developers and consulted on the game, and the developers also insist that, lore-wise, everything stated in the game should be accurate to Anno's instructions. Anno himself has remained vague on the matter, merely saying that all the information need to understand the story is included within the show, and no additional material is needed.

* DirtyOldMan: One of the games most infamous scenes from the game is a comedic substory, wherein Fuyutsuki convinces Shinji to dress up as his mother, Yui, much to Shinji's discomfort, and takes pictures of him, when he finds that [[WholesomeCrossdresser Shinji really does resemble his mother quite a bit]]. It undeniably paints Fuyutsuki as [[AdaptationalJerkass quite a bit more of a pervert than in the show]].

Most notable about the game is the so-called "Classified Information", which was hyped as a major selling point for the game prior to its release. In practise, the "Classified Information" is a compendium of facts about the universe of ''Evangelion'', which is gradually unlocked during play, and expands quite a bit on the lore of the franchise, especially in many places where the TV series remained silent on the matter. In addition, as the different scenarios shifts to different characters, their points of view are examined to a much greater detail than in the show, which also fills out some details about lore and character motivations that the show left unstated.

* DoingInTheWizard: The Classified Information does this to different degrees quite a few concepts which the TV series left more ambiguous in nature, as it traces the supernatural events and artifacts of the show back to the hyper-advanced scientific works of SufficientlyAdvancedAlien {{Precursors}}. Most notably, it is clarified that the Secret Dead Sea Scrolls are not some kind of divine prophecy, but rather a instruction manual on how the different Seeds of Life work.
