Barrick has a lot of cheesy one-liners, but he had more of a personality than Marcus. (Seriously, none of this "Let's keep moving/move out" nonsense). And, as a previous poster mentioned: He kept a cigar in his mouth for four hours, while fighting Locust. The only downside to his character is when he tries taking a verbal jab on Kim about using the crane. That dialogue felt so forced that I cringed.

Alicia is a bit too cookie-cutter for me. She's the sensitive soldier woman, and he already had that with Anya. Also, there's a good reason why no one ever heard of Alicia until RAAM's Shadow was released.

Tai is the only character to actually look younger, but he doesn't seem nearly as interesting as he was in Gears 2. Combine this with some silly dialogue and a lack of explanation for his character (Why does he act the way he does? Why does no one else act this way? Where on Sera is he from?) and we get a blah character.

Kim is just Kim. He likes saving civilians and doesn't like losing teammates. He also likes to run at opponents who are crippled and burned instead of just shooting them from a distance. He also has a really crappy achievement linked to him.

I will have to look into this. My knowledge of the comics is very limited.

I personally like Kim because he's a Gears 1 og. Sure Tai's armor looks badass, but people are forgetting he went out like a punk in Gears 2..killed himself cuz he couldn't handle the pressure..lame. not saying i woulda faired to well against locust but come'on he's a COG

Probably Kim because I like to remember my days playing the first Gears. Although his achievement is one of the most annoying in history. Tai would be second.

Barrick, a decent substitute for Marcus.

Not really a major fan of any of them. If I had to pick, I guess I'd say Kim. Although, being a chick, I prefer chick characters, I just can't be arsed about Valera at all.

Tai because of the look but his banter gets annoying pretty quick. Not as annoying as Bernie though

Definately Tai. Great Lines and he was great in GoW 2 as well. Too bad he died

Alicia and Barrick. The others don't appeal to me at all.
