10. Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood: The Brotherhood Escapes – Jesper Kyd

9. ASsASSIN’S CREED BROTHERHOOD: City of Rome – Jesper Kyd


A more atmospheric track with subtle ambiance to go with the setting of Roman outskirts.

8. Assassin’s Creed II: Florence Tarantella – Jesper Kyd


A more folk-inspired song, which is heard during the quiet (and murderous) strolls through the colorful streets of Florence.

7. Assassin’s Creed Rogue: Main Theme – Elitsa Alexandrova


A very welcome throwback to Ezio’s Family, re-done in a more adventurous style akin to Black Flag.

6. Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag: Main Theme – Brian Tyler


Speaking of Black Flag, the Main Theme is magnificently composed, having that open-seas vibe much like Hans Zimmer’s Pirates of The Caribbean score.

5. Assassin’s Creed Revelations: Labored and Lost – Jesper Kyd & Lorne Balfe


Labored and Lost is the epic, big-scale, loud choir track that rams you in the face with massive orchestration and it’s just wondrous.

4. ASSaSSIN’S CREED IV BLACK FLAG: Pyrates Beware – Brian Tyler

 

A tense song with lots of screeching fiddles and a masterful interlude in the middle that you’ll be humming for a while.

Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag - Pyrates Beware (Track 02)

3. Assassin’s Creed III: Fight Club – Lorne Balfe


One of my personal favorites, this track has a very strong high-production-value celtic vibe worthy of any pub crawl, just request this at a bar and get piss drunk! Note: There’s a very well made 10-minute long extended version of this track, so make sure to check that out as well.

Assassin’s Creed 3 / Lorne Balfe - Fight Club (Track 17)

2. Assassin’s Creed II: Venice Rooftops – Jesper Kyd


You might remember this from the rooftop race sequences, which the track captures marvelously. A tight race against time on Venetian rooftops. Perfecto!

1. Assassin’s Creed II: Ezio’s Family – Jesper Kyd


Who am I kidding, we all knew this would be on the top spot! Haunting vocals, mesmerizing strings and incredibly atmospheric piano performances bring this amazing composition together, encapsulating what Assassin’s Creed II was about – an orphaned teenager in search for vengeance of his family. Ezio’s Family – a track that will not be forgotten anytime soon.
