Tecmo admits that Quantum will be compared to Gears of War


Tecmo is working on a game called Quantum that I got to peek at during E3. The game is looking like it could potentially be quite good, but there's no denying the fact that it looks almost exactly like Gears of War, from the gameplay to the character designs. Tecmo is at least self-aware enough to realize that Quantum will be compared to the game it shamelessly pilfers from.

"We are aware that people will draw comparisons [with Gears of War]," says Ben Laurence, PR manager of Tecmo Koei Europe, "but Quantum will be a fantastic game in its own right."

I'm not one who really cares that a game is totally original and unique, so long as it's good, and if Quantum is  a fun shooter, than it's not going to matter much. That said, Quantum really has been remorseless in its Gears pillaging. Saying it will draw comparisons is like saying the next Dead or Alive will have a few breasts in it.
