BioWare: Mass Effect 3 isn't 'Gears of War in space'

Mass Effect 3 is absolutely not "Gears of War in space," BioWare marketing director David Silverman has assured fans.

Asked by CVG if he could confirmed that the third title in the Mass Effect series won't be "Gears of War in space," Silverman said: "Yes. I can guarantee that. When I mention games like Gears, Assassin's Creed or Uncharted, it's in the guise of certain aspects: if you had BioWare's rich, detailed story where your choices mattered, where they could determine the future of civilisations; if you had all of that coupled with the heart-stopping action of games like Gears Of War, that's what we're going for."

Mass Effect has always been amazing.
Gears of War is fun, but Mass Effect is on a whole different level.
I'm a huge fan of Gears, but there really is nothing like Mass Effect.

I agree ME stands alone in what it is able to accomplish with immersion and player impact. Even Dragon Age can't do what ME does.

Yes, but that is your opinion. I would take Gears over Mass Effect. You can't say one is better than the other in general. That's a major problem on this site here.

I don't think anyone stated that one was better than the other.
Inf fact we were actually pointing out that they are different games with different goals.
I couldn't choose one over the other. I want them both, for different reasons.

I don't see anything similar between the gameplay of these two games.

Oh wait, you DO shoot a gun, I guess.

To be fair, Mass Effect is becoming less and less rpg with each iteration. I definitely wouldnt say it's gears though lol

Its going to have spaceship combat? not just have you buy something for the ship - do a technical overhaul - and just have it magically put on?

Though I like the game I think it was a bit of a cop out having you buy one or two components and not have to upgrade them multiple levels with a bit of scavenger hunting. They could have given forced downtime with sub-plots that let you get to know you B and C team crew, as well as give an excuse for a spoiler to happen at a better place than it did.

But then I also think that they should have had a poker mini-game too. Not that one throw away scene where you don't actually play poker.

Could have even had a strip poker mini-mini game. Not that I think anyone wants to see a naked Krogan. And jack doesn't have that much to start much less put up.
