I know not everyone is crazy about "Ezio's Family" having become more or less the official theme music of the series. Personally, I don't mind it. In fact, I like hearing the theme mixed in all kinds of different styles, rearranged for the soundscape of various historical eras.

With that in mind: what's your favourite of the variations we've heard in the games so far? I've left out the original because I want to know what OTHER versions people like. http://static5.cdn.ubi.com/u/ubiforums/20130918.419/images/smilies/tongue.png (Only included China from the Chronicles games, as India and Russia only incorporate Ezio's theme minimally in their main themes.)

Rogue's is my favourite, got a lot of flak for so closely resembling it but I find it really beautiful and more listenable than Ezio's family itself... And it wonderfully includes The British Empire from AC4 too... Love it.

I am not crazy about Ezio's Family becoming the unofficial theme though, don't mind a motif but each game should have it's own identity and it's symbolic of how desperately they want to grasp on to the Ezio trilogy and can't really move on...

AC Rogue version - sharp, edgy, sense of mystery, sense of exploration, sense of urgency

The Rogue version is good and you can really feel it throughout the game,but the original version is original. I also like Syndicate's version with the mournful strings, and the fact that Evie (Victoria Atkin) does the vocals.


I like that a common element developed to the themes, even if it wasn't planned. It shouldn't overwhelm the unique music and atmosphere of each game, just enough to welcome you and remind you where you are and where you came from.

Omg I don't remember hearing Rogue's version, but I just listened to it and it is so mysterious and creepy. Luv it! *checks off box*

I do like the Earth version and Syndicate's.

I'm suprise to choose the soul calibur one as my best version after hearing the first minute of it. In fact I never played/will play that game, but it's one of the 2 only choice which I never played their game. ^-^

Did you even play ac rogue once? It's the music we hear in the main menu. :confused:

Just saw you made your 4000th comment. So many and still not an ac expert on the forum. I'm starting to think I'll never be one of them. Congratulations for you 4000th post. ^-^

I like the original and the SCV remix best. I really do love the Rogue version, but I think the song could stand alone without the AC2 melody.

I have over 10,000 and I'm not an expert either. :p I think the expert title is a special one given to certain members who contribute something to the community, but I'm not sure what the criteria is.

It is a past title of amazingness, which is why those of you who "could" have it, don't. Good to see you're interested in something similar, though! Noted

Well, I suppose becoming a senior member is one of the criteria, but I could have become that twice and you have 10000comment more than the 500 needed, so I guess the number of comment don't mean a thing at some point.

I'm interested. What was needed to do, when it was possible? ^-^

I think most people got it around Black Flag, before it launched. If you preorder AC4 from an EMEA store you'd get a code to join The Watch (kinda similar to ACU's AC Council). Those that were a little bit more active - posting pictures/art/cosplay and rating stuff - were promoted to expert.

I did, but it's been a while since I played it and never downloaded it to remember what it sounded like

And sometimes I get impatient and just press Start right away without hearing the menu song. :p

OG Earth for me. Rogue's is good, but it felt too similar to the original for a game that was supposed to thematically turn everything about the series on its head.

To much stuff for me it seems. I don't like cosplay at all, for one exemple. ^-^

I got the title (and a signature pic) without even visiting the Watch (well, once for the first time, and that was it). But then again, I was writing blog posts and stuff.

Earth, though Rogue is decent too. In fact I love most of these. It's the official AC theme to me, and hearing it always lets you know what you're in for. We are all Ezio's Family. ;)

Earth, Rogue, and China are my favorite variations :o Although I like most of them anyway, it's such a hauntingly beautiful melody.

You know, this makes me wonder if they'll have a variation of Ezio's Family in the movie. I actually kind of hope they do...

It would be cool. I just hope that they have any music from the games. Or have new Kyd tracks.

Just no more Kanye, please.

Just jocking. XD
