General info

Gauge is a light-weight cross-platform test automation tool for writing acceptance tests.

Gauge is a free and open source framework for writing and running acceptance tests. Some of its key features include: -Simple, flexible and rich syntax based on Markdown.; -Consistent cross platform/language support for writing test code.; -A modular architecture with plugins support.

MSTest is a Unit testing framework for the .net framework

MSTest is fully integrated with Visual Studios and works natively without the need for any plugins. MSTest is better suited for only using Microsoft technologies rather than mixed technology environments.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

Yes

MsTest is an xUnit type framework
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

You can test front-end behaviour by creating testing specifications to test front-end behaviour

Yes

MsTest can test various front-end components
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test back-end behaviour by creating testing specifications to test back-end behaviour

Yes

With MSTest you can test various back-end components individually
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

MSTest contains fixture methods TestInitialize to setup your environment and TestCleanup to destroy the test environment
Group fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data for a group of tests (group-fixtures). This ensures specific environment for a given group of tests.

Yes

Group fixtures are available
Generators
Supports data generators for tests. Data generators generate input data for test. The test is then run for each input data produced in this way.

Mocks
Mocks are objects that simulate the behavior of real objects. Using mocks allows testing some part of the code in isolation (with other parts mocked when needed)

Yes

You can create mocks using third party libraries like moq

Yes

You can create mock objects using the third party library moq
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

You can create test suites with Gauge which can be run using multiple parameters.

Yes

Grouping of tests into suites is possible with MSTest
