Ezio is much better. Better personality, better weapons, better skills.

I loved Altair for his "dark side". He is a real badass!

Ezio's look is the better one, but that's only because of the possibilities to alter his clothing. At least he's not behaving like an monk .

I definitely preferred Altair as well. I don't what it is about Ezio, I just don't like him

I love them both. I really like Altair's inner darkness and his voice, and how he took control of the Assassin's Order. But I've always had an affinity for the Italian Renaissance, so Ezio won me over straight away. It's a tough call for me but I think Ezio just barely wins out. Plus, he looks so fantastically badass in the preview for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.

I liked Altair as a character better(or more precisely what they didn't say about him) but ac2 was such a deep game that its hard to vote against Ezio. but since I'm forced to choose 1 or the other I'll go with Altair.

My vote is for Altair. Ezio's cool too, but I like Altair kind of has that brooding Batman feel about him.

And I never got the impression that Altair enjoys killing. I feel that both he and Ezio regarded it as a necessary evil. Isn't there a codex entry in AC2 where Altair talks about being unsure that killing for the greater good is really right?

All you have to do is turn on AC1 and watch one of the 1st cutscenes in the mineshaft. That proves my point.

Both are good.

Altair's character design was good & in true games design fashion they improved upon that to create Ezio.

Altair to me is like Link from Legend of Zelda, he is the Hero of Time & Ezio is the descendant Link in Wind Waker (even though Wind Waker wasn't exactly top notch Legend of Zelda it was still a good game). However that said Ezio definitely looks better in terms of character design, like I said, they improved & built on Altair.

Altair is a legend & I cannot wait for brotherhood.

Altair is a much better character. But as said in the post above me Ezio is much graphically better and animation wise.

Altair seemed to be more badass and generally a better characterbut Ezio has a personality and shows it unlike Altair but I would still go with Altair, I also prefer his armor

Yeah, just want to clarify my point though; Ezio has better developed character design, that's the design of the background to the character ie bio, to the actual detail of the character model & textures. You mention animation, but it's actually the same bar a few moves that was added to the game.

As a character artist, Ezio is the stuff of dreams, Altair is quite linear when you actually look at how he's created.

Personal opinion I prefer Ezio's armour as it's apparent that he's actually wearing armour, it's on show with such fine detail, the whole persona of Ezio says "well armed assassin". Altair wears more of a cross between a hoodie & a dress, still cool but just not as well designed as Ezio.

A lot of people (like my brother) say Ezio was better soley because of his equipment. But if you had read the codex pages you would find that Altair invented all this equipment and that he also invented the assasination techniques although you did not get to use them in the original Assassin's Creed. Though I do do have to admit, Ezio looks a lot cooler.

But I beleive if Altair and Ezio were to battle it out, Altair would win. Ezio, while being a descendent of Altair and destined for greatness, he knew nothing of the organization until he was about 20 or so. Altair spent his entire life since he was 4 in harsh training with Al Mualim. Ezio just decided after his family was killed that he should get his buddy Leonardo to make him some weapons and he would decimate the corruption of the Itallian government.

Ezio 100%

Why?....1. His accent is quality, 2. His clothes are much better/smarter, 3. His fighting/climbing abilities are much better (i know thats down to Ubisoft but still) 4. His passion for his family (Everyone has passion for there family but not every one would kill for them) Last But Not Least 5. I love Italians. There accent/Language, there love for there friends and family and there contry.

Did you ever stop to think that the developers did that on purpose because it was TOO EASY in the first game?
Seriously, you might as well say you hate Ezio because his health doesn't fully regenerate. :/


Altair vs Ezio?

Ezio.
Because he's faster than Altair. Combat (in a hidden blade only match, Ezio wins hands down) and he can out-climb Altair.

Personality wise? Definitely Altair but his "everything is about me" attitude changes later, though.

A character that's a womanizer has never been my favorite. And yes, thank goodness for the Subtitles.

If talking about assassination technique I would choose Altair, but for an overall development throughout the story I would choose Ezio. Remember how much he changed from a women-flirter and rebelious boy to become a man, one that can become a legend and change the history.

Ezio since he actually learned to swim, and he's more developed as a character.

Ezio - He was just so much more real as a character. Much more personality and I liked that he was learning how to become an assassin as he went rather than being an ultimate badass from the start.

I like both. Altair because he's a badass and Ezio...well he's incredible cute. I'm looking forward to Brotherhood because I'm curious about the change of Ezio. He has to change throughout the years that past. Maybe he'll become almost like Altair. We'll see.

Ezio definitely has more of a personality and Altair seems to be more serious about his killings.

Altair; only because he was more serious and badass.
