Awful http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif I look forward to these and the music they chose was such a bad decision.

They are trying to get the attention of the CoD bandwagon.

Not very artistic music. Unusual for the AC series..

This </div></BLOCKQUOTE> Not that i like COD but funny how anything relative to a video game done badly is automatically trying to get the attention of its bandwagon. CoD Black Ops will sadly outsell every game out there and make billions but just because the majority of casuals play it doesn't mean you should bash it at every tiny opportunity.

They should have used an epic song like this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBe9vkmD-Os&ob=av2n), it's lyrics even sort of make sense with the story, especially the first line http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Nice!
But at the start, it sound like he mumbles and I can't understand what he says..

Yeah he does that. He always does it live. The studio version isn't like that. I saw them live in September, this was part of the encore and Matt (the singer/guitar player) came back out and was wearing this Christmas suit that had all these blue and red LED lights on it. I want one http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif But yeah they always sing about politics, corruption, and aliens, so they've got a ton of songs that'd fit perfectly. But alas, Ubisoft are going mainstream http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

It should have a dark classical piece me thinks.

That's what made Ubisoft famous(Sort of..), not trying(Too hard) to be mainstream..
PoP wasn't mainstream(Maybe it was because of platforming), and certainly not AC(Again, maybe because of the blood.).

Yeah but you've got to admit, they've totally changed what AC's all about. The first game actually involved planning and gathering intel, while the second (as amazing a game as it is) was completely different. And now they're putting in war machines... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif Even though I can't wait to have a go at them

And I think something like this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2owrEDrgc_4&feature=related) would sound good as well. It's epic.

This was discussed when the video was originally posted.

You have to take into account what kind of people were watching the football and what kind of music would appeal to them. So technically the marketing team did exactly what they should have done.

Obviously for the hardcore AC fan it didn't work but it wasn't meant to appeal to us. Anyway, we have plenty of other amazing clips to drool over so stop complaining.

Yeah, I have the same thoughts as you.
The war machines do look fun and exciting but not familiar to the AC universe.
I hope there would be at least some stealth in the game like they promised.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

I like the song - it sounds fun and sort of fluid. Normally, I'd be asking for a repressively dark piece, but I've accepted that Brotherhood's story won't be what I wanted.

Actually, scratch that. This song sucks. The THWOMMM noise from Inception should have been the song.

As far as the game itself, i think ubi is just trying to evolve it, what with the new weapon types, war machines, and battle mechanics. They have to evolve the game if they hope to take it into the modern age/future. (automatic weapons, explosives, ect)
for example, the horse. until ACB, it couldn't enter cities...so how do you end up with cars in the 2nd millenium? baby steps. don't just jump to cars. let horses into cities, and grow from there.

As far as advertisements go, ubi shouldn't be worried about the dedicated fans of the AC franchise. they should be worried about getting new fans. they know we'll come back for more. they need new people to generate more profit...which means going after different target audiences. Sure, the dark, menacing classical music is pure epic awesomeness in a jar. but some people have different musical taste (or lack thereof). they still have money in their pockets, and Ubi wants it.

Moral of the story is Ubi is a company, and the entire purpose of a company is to make money, and lots of it. different tactics work in different situations... expansion of the target audience is one of them.

Did you guys forget about the AC2 trailer that had terrible music? Apparently, lol.

Granted, not all of them did, but anyone familiar with the different trailers probably remembers it.

I love the AC:B trailer with "Burn My Shadow" in it though. (this is not it.)

That ad was pretty meh, the song didnt fit.

I dont know if any of you remember the Assassin's Creed 2 TGS trailer, but the song in that made the trailer 10x more epic.

Here it is in case you forgot what it was:

ac2 trailer with genisis-Justice was awesome, techno songs can work with ac and IMO it is better than some boring classical song as they work well in-game but for trailers you are meant to get people excited and this song well it is alright but ... meh

I always thought of Assassin's Creed having either Wanted Dead Or Alive (Bon Jovi) or What I've Done (Linkin Park) as it's theme tune? Not tinie tempah - mind you it's trying its hardest to appeal to chavs and it's probably working... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

I Like, the music. It shows the vibe, and excitement players get from playing this game.

Just because you want it to be death metal screamo.

Has anyone actually seen that TV ad on actual TV? Because I haven't. And if you read at the end of the ad, it says coming on November 19th. That's the European release date, right?

Now, that doesn't appeal to me at all music wise. But, Europeans have different taste, and that song is probably more geared toward that stereotype. The TV ads I've seen here in the states have been breathtaking. I have watched them so many times I can't even count. I think their marketing team has done an amazing job with it to be honest.

That's the one I was referring to. That was terrible.

So is this one mentioned.


However, the AC:B one with Unkle - Burn My Shadow is uber.
