Assassin's Creed Brotherhood (Original Game Soundtrack)


Composer: Jesper Kyd
Ubisoft Music
RRP: £13.99
Available 16 November 2010

Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood is inspired by historical events during the occupation of Rome by The Borgias in 1503. Jesper Kyd’s music score for Brotherhood draws influence and authentic instrumentation from this Renaissance period, immersing players in Ezio’s adventures to liberate Rome from a corrupt and tyrant regime...

Jesper Kyd's score for the console game Assassin's Creed Brotherhood is another impressive offering from the composer.

Highlights for me included 'Flags of Rome' (which starts off rather bland and slowly builds into an interesting track with a haunting choral theme; 'The Brotherhood Escapes'; 'Echoes of the Roman Ruins'; 'Borgia Tower'; and 'Desmond Miles' (which brought to mind Lorne Balfe's music for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2).

While the music works well in the game to set the atmosphere, it also works as a stand alone score. There are perhaps a few too many "atmospheric" moments that are a little dull in isolation (the majority of 'Apple Chamber' being one instance), but overall this works well.
