Question???

I wanted to start playing the Dead Space games but it seems like these games are a lot like Gear Of War and Im not that big of a fan of Gears. So can anyone tell me if it is anything like GOW?

The only thing that this game has in similarity to Gears of War is the third-person shooter aspect and the fact its rather gruesome. You won't notice it, though. Dead Space is a much smoother game than Gears. Plus, it feels much more independent since you are on your own the entirety of the game. Play them, both Dead Space 1 and 2 are fantastic games.

Yeah, it wasn't until Dead Space 3 that they shamelessly and clumsily ripped off GoW gameplay, with the broken cover system, the co-op requirements and the pointless and silly dive-roll.

Dead Space is a classic, I loved Dead Space 2. I didn't really like Dead Space 3 though, but it was still a good game

Dead Space is tremendously far from the game mechanics present in Gears of War. As said before, the only similarity is the 3rd person perspective and, to some degrees, the way the player aims his weapon.

It is one of the most legit survival horror games out there even years beyond its release and has found its place in my top five favorite games list.

Same; it's sad what happened with 3.

I don't think DS3 was a bad game, but I think it should have been based on a different character. Perhaps just the coop character.

Issac's story should have finished with the first game, the second I felt was more action orientated and been based around someone else. The third had a good story but it didn't make sense having Issac there.
