We're excited to announce that we've fully migrated the Xbox Forums to their new home, here on the Microsoft Community forums!
As of today, going to forums.xbox.com will redirect you here to the Xbox area of the Community forums. We've moved all of your existing threads over so you can continue and start conversations with the new forums experience.
We sincerely appreciate the feedback you have provided over this transition and can't wait for you to check out the new Xbox Forums!
Dante's Inferno is probably the best example of a pure GoW-style action game. Then Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. Darksiders has GoW-style combat, but it is more focused on a Zelda-like adventure game outside of combat. I can vouch for all three of these,
I've played and finished them all (including GoW I, II & III).
On a side note, if you have access to a PS3, you might want to check out Heavenly Sword too.
