regarding hi-fi rush…. there’s a Number Girl track in it! also Prodigy and Nine Inch Nails! Those play during boss fights i believe and those alone make me want to play the game. the mid-level music is the most generic and soulless rock n roll music i’ve heard in my life, but the visuals more than make up for it i think.
although cell-shading was big in the 00s, levels that are fully rendered with cell shading weren’t really that common, even on JSR and the like. The only game I can think of that has a 100% cell shaded look is viewtiful joe? i really like that about hi-fi rush. (also can anyone recommend me more games with this look pls)
