Hey everyone (this is my first thread so don't kill me if i get something wrong it's been posted before, if so then the Mods can just close it.) So, only recently have I become really involved in gaming and everything so I haven't played Modern Warfare or any COD games or known the hype around that or AC. So what do you think (please try and be non-biased) which game will be more hyped (as both games come out around the same time) COD: Modern Warfare 2 or Assassins Creed 2?

You do realise where you're asking right?

Modern Warfare 2 may have more people looking forward to it but AC2 has people who would kill to have it tomorow. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

You shouldn't ask this on a AC2 forum haha

But I think MW2 is anticipated by more people, but AC2 fans are more dedicated. Myself, I'm waiting for AC2, I've even ordered the Black Edition. MW2 is just a rent http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

AC2 is really the only 2009 release I want. It'll stay that way, unless they come out with a new Destroy All Humans! game, or Saints Row game.

I'd say MW2, it's the new Halo. But I prefer Assassin's Creed by 100000000%. I'll still get MW2 just to add to the collection, but I'm still focusing on ACII. Who knows, maybe ACIII will outrank MW3?

But I'm more excited for AC2. The FPS genre has been badly worn out for me.

Since the Prestige Edition was announced, MW2 anticipation has shot into the stratosphere. I think with the lack of any kind of Collector's Edition for AC2 has slightly hurt the anticipation of the game that most of the gamers was feeling in North America. Heck, I'm surprised that Canadians haven't formed lynch mobs because of it.

What about Assassin's Creed 2: Black Edition? Or are you mainly thinking about NA territories?

Mainly here in North America. Ubisoft and the rest of the world may not think so, but N.A. loves Collector's Editions just as much as the next guy, but they feel slighted, almost like a slap in the face because of not being able to get a Black or White Edition of AC2. In the Gamestop store where I get all of my games, those games that have some sort of CE edition coming out for them, they are getting a lot of pre-orders where AC2 is getting the "Nah, I'll wait for an used copy" attitude towards it. The pre-order extra, "Palazzo Medici" just really isn't that big of an incentive for them to change their minds, me included, since I'm one of those that if there is a CE, I must have it and pre-order it. Yes I know I can always import, but unless I modify my system to play PAL games and a store that would actually ship the Black Edition to N.A. instead of the White, then I'd do it in a heartbeat.

Did Ubisoft ever explain as to why that N.A. wasn't receiving a CE like they did when they explained why Splinter Cell: ConViction was 360 exclusive?

why do all threads relating to AC2 turn into complaints about the black edition, it's on specail edition america isnt getting, just get over it, the rest of the world has missed out on specail editions for years.

like you claim MW2 has more anticipation because of it's collectors edition, yet 90% of game firms now say Europe is the largest gaming market yet I still have not seen a single site with the specail edition in Europe, meaning they are missing out the specail edition for the largest game market in the world making the specail edition a very small argument.

And if there was an identical thread over at Charlie Oscar Delta asking which is more anticipated, I'll bet they'd say they're the more dedicated audience too. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

AC2 was the most anticipated of the E3 as far as I know.

Now, after watching the MW2 Demo, I realised it was so overrated and that some people will be dissapointed because the online will be pretty much the same as MW1 even though it was a great game.

Anyways, MW2 is more hyped but not better in my opinion. After both games are released, I'm definitaly going for AC2 first and then after MW2.

I have both predecessors of the games in question, Call of Duty: World at War and Assassin's Creed.

I will buy Assassin's Creed II normal edition as I can't afford a Cod every year, Cod games don't differ a lot after a year and I am planning to get God of War III after i get AC2.

Exactly, don't compare MW to WaW.
MW was a great game, but I don't see how they gonna change MW2 more, and I think it'll be the same FPS with another storyline and same online maps.
Right now the only thing I prepare to buy is ACII. And maybe I'll get 2nd hand copy of Mass Effect 2 or MW2.
I'm also waiting to the new RPG of Bioware and The Witcher 2.

Yeah, you could sit and compare games all day, but sales don't decide the better game, any game can become a better seller than another, the way I see it, there are a lot of opinions int the world and the more people agree with something, the more likely it's wrong, IMO...

And Caswallawn who was complaining? I didn't complain, I merely stated that I'm a little disappointed in the fact that I can't get a collector's edition of any kind for the game. I would've been content as a cucumber if just the art book and all 3 DLC's were pre-order bonuses. Matter of fact, I'm one of a few that believes if you're not going to do an CE for all regions, then you shouldn't do one at all.

"One of the few that believes?"

I'm going to assume that by "few" you mean "many."

And all I can say for this topic is that when I saw MW2 I immediately assumed it meant Mechwarrior 2 - which is definitely well past anticipation date (seeing as how it's had three more sequels and two MS attempts at murdering the franchise - Mechwarrior 4 and MW4: Mercenaries don't count as real Battletech games)

I qualify as not caring at all about the MW2 actually meant in the thread, and have pre-ordered Black Edition AC2. If there was no pre-order bonus here, I'd still be pre-ordering. It's AC2.

The demo was cool, but sadly, single player missions are not what makes COD games great. After finishing the single player missions and a few more time you won't be playing them again. Point being, the demo showed nothing new but basically the same as COD4.

But, overall. I think the game will be good enough to fit in my PS3.

Hey, looks like I was wrong. According to americans, AC2 is slightly more anticipated!

Oops, I didn't notice that the games were divided in platforms. Atleast AC2 wins on the PS3-market. But not on the 360.
