    I don't get the popularity of AC soundtrack, Hitman was and IS the best! Especially "Contracts", my fav!

    Love it to bits. The harps, the progression, the piano. So soothing, yet so serene and mysterious.

    It's shame his work is not in Assasin's Creed 3 and Hitman Absolution. [2] I bet this is because the Hitman and Assassins Creed games became massive commercial hits and the devs he works closest with left. Also for my money the Hitman Blood Money ost is the best of that series.

    AC1 is best imho. So atmospherically medieval.
