    This is one the most under appreciated games ever. Period.

    One thing I would like to say is that Galleon should have received more credit than it did. I have owned the game since it was released in 2004 in the US. I will keep this review as short as possible: Graphics: This g... Read Full Review

    this week's homework. gotta love college, video games for homework.

    Galleon is a one player Fantasy Adventure game on the X box only. The game was very similar to what I thought it would be as well as to all of the hype that came with it. Unfortunately there were some major upsets as w... Read Full Review

    I don't like to be too wordy about things so I will try to keep this short. IMO, Galleon is a interesting game and is worth the price I spent for it. That doesn't mean other will fill the same as it is not a graphical ... Read Full Review

    This game was not one of my better buys. I was always nuts about swashbucklers. Errol Flynn. Tyrone Power. Robin Hood. Zorro. So Galleon sounded fun. It does have a decent story. You can even get past the archaic graphic... Read Full Review

    It's been so long that you forgot the THINGS THAT DROVE YOU CRAZY about Tomb Raider Games. Impossible Leaps, Endless Searching and some of the worlds WORST CONTROLS. In Galleon, the Story is pretty good, but the CONTRO... Read Full Review

    Most underrated game of 2004

    Yes, the graphics are weak and the characters are creepy-looking. Yes, the combat is mushy. Yes, there are some swimming sequences that are frustrating as hell. Yes, there was a bug on one of the levels prevented me from... Read Full Review

    Promising ideas and intersting gameplay are let down by the poor control system and average graphics.

    Galleon iis good fun. At first. But after about the first 30 minutes of play, you soon begin to realise- perhaps not. I mean, you were having great fun, jumping onto the rocks and leaping 30 metres onto another platform,... Read Full Review

    Galleon, overall, trully succeeds in creating one of the most ambitious and underrated games on the market.

    Galleon was in development for a very long time and for just about every platform there was too. It is now finally hear on the Xbox and let me say it is great. You play as a swashbuckling sailor named Rhama, who can do a... Read Full Review

    Lots of potential and equal amount of flaws.

    Galleon is a third person action adventure game setting in 17th century, but several notable flaws inhibits it from achieving greatness. In Galleon you play as Captain Rhama Sabrier, a sailor who commands his own boat... Read Full Review
