Galleon – Consumer Guide

Brad Gallaway's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Alcohol Reference, Suggestive Themes, Violence

Parents really don't have much to fear from Galleon. The alcohol reference occurs when the character drinks "grog" one time while shopping for provisions, and I don't recall any "suggestive themes" at all. The violence is extremely mild, the enemy pirates and monsters disappearing from sight after being dispatched without the slightest hint of blood or gore. The difficulty level will most likely be beyond younger gamers due to the brainpower and skill required to navigate the 3D environments, but the game won't corrupt anyone's childhood.

Tomb Raider fans and platformer nuts, Galleon is required playing. It feels a lot like Tomb Raider except that it doesn't suck, it moves faster, flows better, and holds together than Lara Croft ever did. If you've been craving adventure-filled 3D exploration and haven't been satisfied with recent offerings, this is your ticket.

Graphics whores: you're missing out, but in all honesty, you'd better stay away from Galleon if you can't stand anything less than the cutting edge.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers get equal access with full text accompanying all voiceovers with no problems at all.
