They provide very different experiences, but they're both quality games. I really like the fact that both titles are designed for portable platforms from the ground up, unlike many AAA titles. GTA:CW is funny, engaging, deep. Liberty city is just an amazing setting, wonderfully realized. AC2 is simply exhilarating -- there are so many ways to go through a level, it's just dizzying. (As an example, in one chase level, I ran into a group of four swordsmen while low on health. I could have tried to fight them or jump over them and run. Instead, I backed up to ledge, hung down, and waited for them to come after me. As they approached the ledge, I knocked them down one by one. It was just one cool moment in a game that's filled with them.)

I guess I'm no help whatsoever. Sorry!

well they're both ports from the DS original, they're both much cheaper than the DS original, but they're really different games.

AC sidescroller with great animations or GTA top down view? personally i think GTA would be better, but i've never played it before. AC2 for the ds is much better than the gameloft version.

Actually, GTA has much more than 20 hours of gameplay. In any event, the question is not which one is bigger, but which one is better. The only truthful answer is: it depends what you're looking for.
