Damn, only 30 seconds each. So far, they're pretty darn movie like. Actually, it's exactly like something you would hear from a cinematic movie.

What's with people constantly calling short previews that are hard to judge bland? :p Lots of revered AC music can be called bland if you just listen to very short amounts of it.

It sounds ok, though it's hard to see if there's some concrete melodic tune like in other AC themes (because it feels like amazon just took snippets at random)

But apparently it's not a mix of AC3 and AC2 themes as one would judge from the music they used in trailers.

Agnus Dei, Mysterious North, The Guardian and the Main Theme sound amazing. It has quite a few bombastic movie-esque tracks (which I'll admit aren't to my liking), but the quieter ambient style ones with the glorious vocalisations make up for that, I absolutely adore them. I'll definitely be downloading the full thing when it's available.

Oh I wasn't implying that they were the same, I just found that the melody was slightly similar to the one that kicks in at around the 42 second mark in Brian Tyler's track. The composer seems to be a fan of both his and Jesper's so that's possibly where she drew inspiration from (I checked her Soundcloud account).

Yeah, there's definitely some similarities :) Maybe Tyler's track was used as inspiration as Rogue is very British-focused and happens at around the same time period.

It will just be more expensive on iTunes (as things tend to be). Unity still isn't showing up Amazon yet either, so give it time. There is no actual benefit to preordering digital music anyways.

That main theme, is one of the best I've heard so far. My only gripe is that it sounds very Chinesey. Would have better suited maybe a future title for a game in China.

Cause there's Ezio's Family in it :p
In all seriousness though, I like the idea behind the sampling of AC2's and AC3's themes but I wish there was less of it, the unique part of the track is seriously good and has the potential to carry this theme as one of the best and most memorable in the franchise. It could have also done with being a tad longer imo. (*ignore the last comment, just realised this isn't the full thing).

EDIT:
Also, looking at the comments, I knew I wasn't the only one who noticed the similarities between this and The British Empire

There's only about 30 seconds more of the theme and it's not toooo different from the rest. Some of the Ezio's Family vocals creep back in and the background goes back to that AC3 theme descending notes pattern.

I really like the Rogue main theme. The only thing that ever so slightly bugs me is that the female singer sounds more autotuned than in Jesper's compositions, but it's a very minor complaint.

Yeah it sounds like this'll go very well with the the breathtaking, panoramic cutscene that we find in every game. Wouldn't be surprised if it shows Shay and his bff standing on top of a cliff or tower and hugging each other.

I initially read that as "Shay with his bf" and was a bit confused. But I guess with Haytham that works too.

The Main Theme sounds like a cross between AC4 and Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit, I am loving it!! I'm so so tempted to just buy it now and listen, but I am getting it with the special edition so it might be a waste :rolleyes:
The beginning of it is Ezio's Family though...
I like the song, but it's just so stale now, it was just so damn popular that it was used everywhere
Got boring

I can hear a dash of Ezio's Family inside the theme "I Am Shay Patrick Cormac"

It was only ever used in AC2 and ACB prior to its latest reintroduction, that's hardly "everywhere". And even then, it cropped up twice at most in both games - title screen and credits. The ACR main theme on the other hand was repeated numerously over the course of the main campaign and accompanied by a myriad of variations. I heard that theme far more than I did AC2's.

They're integrating the "Ezio's Family" motif into Unity and Rogue to "represent the Assassin Brotherhood", so it's not just some arbitrary homage. My only gripe is that the track is a little too personal to his story and journey which makes it somewhat unsuitable for any other purpose. But at the same time I really like hearing older songs return because it makes the franchise feel connected. I'd have loved it if AC1's "Access the Animus" was a recurring assassination theme, hearing each composer's spin on it would've been pretty awesome.

I wasn't meaning everywhere game-wise, it was also used in heaps of fan fiction, home-made AC videos and even some stuff that wasn't even AC related

The main theme is terrible.

The Ezio theme doesnt fit the Templar context (and I hate ezio theme returning anyway) and the main part of the theme sounds like disinterested back and fourth tugs of a bow.

What is the main theme trying to do ? It takes the Ezio theme then adds an asian twist to it. Plus why are they using Ezios theme for a Templar based game ? Why ?

RinoTheBouncer
11-01-2014, 05:13 PM
I was highly disappointed by the theme that I listened to, today. I mean really? copying an exact tune for this? they might have used that as a track on Brotherhood or Revelations because it still relates to Ezio, his family and his games. But here? like what’s the connection? It’s a famous track in the AC universe, yes, but that doesn’t mean it can fit into any other game than that which it was intended for. I’m even less impressed by AC:Unity’s soundtrack, but this feels reductive.

They did a good job of mixing atmosphere with nice unique instrumentals/voices.

It's infinitely better than Unity's (volume one of Unity to be specific), those tracks are just horribly bland and uninspiring. I haven't been compelled to go back and listen to Unity's V1 previews again, whereas I had AC4's on repeat last year. I've listened to Rogue's quite a few times as well.

See, that's not critiquing, that's not stating your opinion, that's being inflammatory for the sake of being inflammatory. When you started talking about music in a similar manner here, I was reminded of your past behaviour towards music, and after you continued that attitude, I got annoyed, and I said that.

Or may be the lack of marketing serves the same purpose as when a sequel goes direct-to-video instead of theaters........

In regards of the music, some tracks in Rogue, even by their names, seem pretty ambient and that is good.

I'm disappointed with the lack of marketing for Rogue in general. No cinematic trailers, only a story trailer and a gameplay trailer. Hopefully a launch trailer drops by soon.


I'm only hoping theres a good reason for them not giving as much marketing as Rogue.

This sounds weird but I think the lack of marketing for Rogue is kinda appropriate. Cause Shay is a shadow character... shrouded in mystery and intrigue. None of the characters in AC3 ever mentioned him by name.... almost as if they feared to utter it (or maybe they just forgot about him :p). As if some memories are best left buried lest they disturb the ghosts of the past.

Arrrrr!

I disagree with her opinion, but you cant diss her like that because of it.

Considering her past behaviour, yes I can. It's a warning for her to post better.


I express my distaste for things in any manner I see fit. If you disagree, you are free to. Doesn't necessarily make my opinion any less 'right' than anyone else's.

I'm not asking you to change your opinion, I'm asking you to post more carefully, and with some maturity. This goes for all your posts, by the way.

I'm going to continue being myself, sorry.

Rogue's Main Theme is terrible. That's my opinion and I'm not sugar coating it.

Ah well,I didn't really liked it as well.I understand that it's supposed to be nostalgic and a tribute to past ACs,but I would enjoy something dark,since Rogue seems to be "the darkest chapter yet".

I just want it to have SOME sense of identity.

It's literally 2-3 songs meshed together.

It's like why did they even bother to hire a composer?

Such a disappointment IMO

Well everyone has an opinion. I personally think its one of the best themes.

Am I the only one who find the tracks too short?

Before each music could develop into a nice piece it is finished.
The pray, Morrigan, The hunter, The guardian, they all sound pretty good but I wish they be longer.

Sure I am spoiled by the AC2 and AC3 albums, my 2 most favorite Ac music perhaps I was expecting something similar quality but I am bit disappointed on the lack of length and I would not mind it a bit more dark in mood as Ubi claims Rogue to be a darkest of all Ac game. Wish Jesper Kyd or Lorne Balfe would of made this album. Would be a brilliant one.

Okay something positive. The ambient is nice, really nice and I do not mind the Ezio tune either.

Having listened to this soundtrack, I love it. I find the main theme great and this sort of thing is something I've been wanting for when it comes to soundtracks. The series would do well to have more of a "series-wide" theme, and Ezio's family frankly gets the job done, this version mixing in other stuff fits the tone from what I've seen of the game. I love composers bringing in their takes of other composer's works. I love it in Castlevania and I love it here. Make Ezio's Family this series' Vampire Killer.
As for other tracks, I'm a big fan of The Streets, Cityscape, The Prey and Northern Lights, personally. Good times.

1. Why wasn't this song included in the soundtrack?

2. Why didn't I know about this song until I saw the Sprint commercial?

Elitsa did a fairly solid job in my opinion. Yeah, some stuff was recycled but I suspect that was at the request of Ubi, to give a sound off to the last gen of games. I do like that they have made Ezio's family kind of a motif for the series. It's appropriate, and iconic.

Rogue certainly had a far better soundtrack than Unity. There are a few stand out tracks, but The Hunter has to be my fave.

Does Rogue have ambient music during free-roam? If so, where? I know there are a few main areas.

To expand on this, I'm thinking of starting Rogue, but I've been playing Unity using the PS4's USB music player to add in my own ambient tracks from the Unity OST. I'm not sure I could go directly into a silent AC game akin to AC3. It would feel oddly jarring given the music I've been playing with.

^ It does, but it's subtle. You can hear Ezio's Family echo throughout New York.
