Product Description

Product Description

Galleon: Islands of Mystery takes you along for a saga of action, mystery, romance and revenge. Battle against giant monsters and evil slave lords, to rescue the damsels in distress. A mysterious ship may hold the key to incredible power, and a warrior named Rhama must claim it before it's lost to a treacherous enemy.

From the Manufacturer

From the creator of Lara Croft comes an epic adventure filled with action, mystery, romance and revenge... Galleon follows the adventures of Captain Rhama Sabrier. Rhama is a hero of almost mythical proportions who willingly becomes embroiled in whatever escapades he stumbles across.

He is tougher, faster and more agile than any normal human could ever hope to be. Having been summoned to the island of Akbah by a world famous healer, Rhama embarks on a quest to discover the origins of a mysterious ship that could hold the key to incredible powers and thereby, untold wealth...

The charming yet tough-as-nails Rhama Sabrier is always up for adventure. So when a wise healer offers Rhama a small fee to assess a mysterious ship, there is little hesitation. What follows is an amazing journey to discover the source of incredible powers - before a treacherous enemy does...

Action
Daredevil heroics, superhuman fighting skills and jaw-dropping athletics are delivered through groundbreaking and effortless controls.

Wonder
Explore a beautiful, original world spanning six islands - each of epic scale and detail.

Mystery
Hours of exploration and challenge unravel peerless storytelling with unforgettable characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most underrated game of 2004 April 15, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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 continuing, and I had to start over from the beginning.

All that does not matter. I *did* start over from the beginning, because I was having so much fun, because Galleon is an absolute pleasure to play. The act of running, jumping, and climbing from plank to platform to cave wall, hundreds of meters above the ground, in these large, awesome levels, feels so good. Once you get used to the controls (unlike all other games, camera and movement is on one stick, creating great precision in your movement), the game starts to feel psychic; it knows what you want to do almost before you do. Anybody who's walked off a plank in *God of War* will know what I'm talking about - the plank-walking in *God of War* is an exercise in frustration, but the plank-walking in *Galleon* is poetry in motion. There's nothing else like it in videogames today.

Also, the sheer size, form, and color of the levels make for an awesome experience. They have the charm and atmosphere of *Sands of Time* and *Halo* - as the sound of wind whips by you, as you stand on a tall peak on an active volcano in a vast ocean, you can't help but think that you're happy to be there.

4.0 out of 5 stars This Is A Great Game!!! September 10, 2004
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I almost passed this one up, but since I couldn't rent it I decided to buy it. The game is actually a lot of fun, because your character is really agile. The developers put a lot of nice touches to the characters and the environment. Butterflies, bats in the caves, wind blowing your clothes and hair, flies and moths buzzing around lanterns, good voices, large environments. The tutorial is great for learning the controls which are not very hard to learn. I'm only about 4 hours into the game and I can't stop playing. The other great part is the story line so far is good too.

My only complaints are the save system and the camera control. I wish I had more control of the saved games. It will save at certain stages of the game for you and Iv'e found a couple save points that you can save whenever you want. The problem is you can't control which of the 12 points you save at. It will save over the oldest one when you reach the max number of saves.

The camera control works great most of the time, but there are times when it would be nice to pan away from your character for a better view.

PROS:

1) Good story

2) Fun to play

3) YOu can scale walls like spider man and jump really far

4) Moving slow will prevent you from falling

5) Graphics are pretty good, because they put life into the world.

6) Large environments

7) You can swim like a Dolpin (Yes it's true)

8) The sound is good too.

9) Great cut-scenes

CONS:

1) Not being able to choose which saves to overwrite

2) Some places it would be nice to have a better camera angel to help find the hidden items

3) Found one bug where I fell through the floor and had to reload

Mostly, this game is far better than some riviews say!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as some think August 15, 2004
By J. Cole
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
At first play, Galleon looks like an older title with amazing effects. One has to remember that Galleon has been sailing the 7 seas in Europe for the past year. Thankfully, it has finally landed at our ports and graced us with an amazing action/adventure title that lives up to the hype.

I try not to let reviews of games skew my enjoyability, especially if it's a genre I like. Galleon's gruelling, unavoidable tutorial is a tad too painful, but once you're into the story and the action, you're there to stay.

I crave games that leave you with a feeling of satisfaction, and Galleon does just that. My moments of guilty pleasure in this game were when I saw the amazing wind effects on characters, their clothes, and their movement; when I got the hang of swimming; when I mastered the combo moves to earn enough fighting points to pull a really sweet move.

the only cool things are the acrobatics
the scenery and things you can grab onto is very picky
pionters to if you want a few especial good tips
1 be very carful when jumping if you jump to far you lose a ton of health and it sucks cause your healing mushrooms are very limited i ran out in like the 2nd island
2!!!!read the tips in the pause menu!!!
3 when your fighting if you have a sword and like to do the running y atack i learned that you hurt your self when doing it all Y move are extremly easy to hurt your self
4the sweet powerd up combo ones wrath of the dragon hurts you to!!!
5 hand to hand is the best fightin method
6 pistols are hard to get ready befor a hit so if you want to use one pull it out once you here the duh duh duh duh duh duh music P.S. that music tels you if you have enimies
7 the running jump kick A X is the most effective attack unless fighting big bosses
8boses take for ever so be carful they will usally attack and then be sort of stunned
9go to [...]
