    Favorite "Ezio's Family" variation?

    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. (Only included China from the Chronicles games, as India and Russia only incorporate Ezio's theme minimally in their main themes.)

    AC2 "Earth":



    Chronicles: China:



    Rogue:



    Unity:



    Syndicate:



    AC Identity:



    BONUS: Soul Calibur "Venice Rooftops SCV Remix":

    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. ^-^

    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.
