Hello, I am not aware of a comparison between Geant4 and EGS4. Anyway, G4 is a "toolkit" and is not a program in the same way as EGS4. It means the user has to write its own application using the class libraries of Geant4. Now there are a lot of already prepared physics list which could certainly fit your specific need. I used EGS4 in the past. It is a nice program as long as you are just looking at the physics involved. But, at least a few years ago, it was really hard to compute the geometry in EGS4. This is one of the main reason why I switched to G4.
