Ok there are others threads on multiplayer or coop gaming...and the vote is:Yes it would be cool to do a multiplayer, but it would probably not work very well.

Splinter Cell did a pretty good job on their Live gaming, but i don;t think it would work for Assassins Creed. But hey, they have a chance, but it would be very different. I think that this game wouldn't top Halo. But it could top Gears of War

this is a much more niche game. it's definatly geared toward a smaller crowd within the gaming community, i don't think if there was a multiplayer aspect that it would top halo or gears. what i don't understand is why people think every game that looks good has to 'be the next halo!' if it's good, it'll be good. the "masses" aren't going to be all over it like they were with halo. halo was a mainstream success and people who don't even play games that much played halo. i seriously doubt we'll see the same success with AC. it's a good game, but it's not going to be as big sales wise as halo was, it's just not, which sucks, cause i'm not even that into halo, i'll get halo 3 (i own a 360, it's pretty much the LAW right?) but i already think that game is over-rated. i like what bungie does with the matchmaking stuff and getting into party's and going to mathces and stuff, it's cool that they put so much time and effort into that, but other than that, they don't really do anything that hasn't been done before, they just execute what they do do well.

personally, i'm a much bigger splinter cell fan and now a gears fan than halo, and i'm REALLY looking forward to AC, but i realize that this game will never achieve the same status in sales and such as halo did....<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Its really unfair to the developers to try to compare this to Halo or gears of war. This game is not ment for that. And multiplayer. If it has multiplayer i would give it a shot but this i feel is more of a single player game.

That is what i am saying!!! It is not going to top Halo, Halo is a game that anyone who knows how to use a controller can play and enjoy. This game...it is more civilized and can only be truely enjoyed by those who appreciate it like Caviar or fine French cheese. This is no Halo, or Gears of War. This is a new type of game all together, there is the excitment and constant action of POP: Two Thrones, there is the stealthyness of Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, the freeroaming-ness of Spider Man 2. This game will probably not sell as many copies as the Halo franchise...but the ones (myself included) will probably enjoy this game more.

XBL acheivements are something you earn by completeing certain tasks in the game. For example i beat Halo 3 on legendary and i get points. Those points go towards your gamer tag. This tells people how much you strive to be the best at every game.

ok, first of all GoW... Awesome game, Halo 3 Awesome as well but to compare AC to those 2 makes no sense,its like asking will Zelda be better than Smackdown vs Raw 2007, 2 whole different kinda of games, AC an adventureish game GoW,halo 3-rd person shooter. So, yes AC will be great in ITS genre of games.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

As several others have stated, AC won't be the next Halo nor GoW. Why? No multiplayer of any kind.
However, do NOT let that deter you. AC just wouldn't really work well w/ more than a single player mode. The concept would be diminished. I would prefer Ubisoft spent all their time on making a top-notch, record breaking 1 player game than bring the quality of that down and add in co-op features or something, which may also not be top quality either. It's a give-take situation, and Ubisoft made the right decision.
I do believe, however, that AC will be remembered w/ higher glory than Halo or GoW, which are GOOD games, not GREAT games. When I say great, I'm referring to games that really pushed what it meant to be a video game or the way games are played. Examples? Resident Evil 4. Fable. Ocarina of Time.

I have to agree, This, being close to (not the same as) Hitman, hitman cannot be multiplayer. Game play would be ruined if that happened.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I have to admit I see some potential in a multiplayer game of AC, but the only thing I can think of is a Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence Sneaking mode..

One player is Altšir, one player is the target and 8 others are guards. guards who get killed won't respawn untill the next game, so it would be quite challenging.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

im not into writing long posts that take minutes to read, so in short here is my opinion.

Halo & GoW- great at what they do, they capitalize on a genre that is already very popular, and they give the gamer a chance to have unlimited fun with other people who enjoy the game as much as they do.

AC- create a new type of game that is more for one person to experience, will not raise to the hight in popularity that Halo or GoW has because of the new genre, and will be a great game to those who buy it.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

There are exceptions to everything, nothing is absolute.

no multiplayer means no gears or halo...

you should re-phrase the question by asking 'will this game be the next splinter cell or metal gear' imo

my answer is no

Assassins creed will not succeed pass halo or gears of war. This game will be bought by people that like fantasy and good story games not like gears of war and halo types. remember, this isnt a shooter this is third person stealth.

I agree with what the popular consensus seems to be, which is AC will not do as well as Halo or GoW in sales, but i think i will enjoy it more as a game. (oh and btw, AC will be MUCH better than Splinter Cell.)<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

<span class="ev_code_RED">I think that this game will be the halo or gears of war for this style of game. I dont think you can outdo either of those games in that area, but i luv third person stealth/fighting games like this will be, and i think it'll top any other game like it that has been previously realeased.</span>

Better than Splinter Cell? I don't know, Splinter Cell is pretty damn good...

Innovation is the key.
I enjoy Gears of war and PoP way more than halo or unreal.

AC Probably won't top halo becaus of the too much specificity of its gameplay. the target population for that game is serious gamers. Halo is For everyone. In my opinion Gears of war is the best game ever becaus it's innovation for everyone. Which means Fun, Fun, Fun And... FUN. AC will be just behind because it's innovative and intelligent, which mean pleasure more than fun. then will be Project offset if they do it on the 360 because its innovation too and only then will come halo3 becaus there's no innovation at all in that game but It's purely owning every other games of the genre. but it's no my favorite genre so...

Oh, and, i forgot about multi player.
It could be last man/team standing in a huge map full of crowd where you can hide as in the solo campaign. or even a race mode wher you have to finise the mission first.
Then it would top Gears in my personal top5.
