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 the world famous healer Dr. Areliano, 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...

When you're speeding along wooden bridges jutting out of the sheer rock, leaping and swinging from precariously placed beams and struts, the wind rippling your hair and flapping your coat tails, the sense of exhilaration is unlike almost anything else you've felt in an action game. Quite some feat for an adventure that was originally destined for creaky old (and now defunct!) Dreamcast hardware...Now on Xbox, it's hard to imagine any other machine mighty enough to power the spectacularly smooth and fast game engine. You thought levels in Mario Sunshine and Prince Of Persia scaled mental heights? Galleon raises the bar into the stratosphere. Literally...Then there's the character animation and the voice acting that are so incredibly believable you'll swear you're watching a Pixar movie. Or the story, that's as gripping and full of romance and intrigue as Pirates Of The Caribbean. But we're getting ahead of ourselves. Forgive us, but we're just so excited that something that has taken so long to put together has turned out to be such a gem...Captain Rhama is the hero of the hour, and it's clear from his chunky jawline, pasty moonface and oddly proportioned limbs that he has been designed by the creator of Lara Croft...Galleon's an awesome game, but it's hard to appreciate just how spectacular it is without seeing the thing in motion. When you see the intricacies of the character animation, or witness the precise way each beam, platform and trap has been designed so it sits in the perfect place for you to negotiate, that's when you understand just how much love and craft has gone into making Galleon a golden nugget of gaming excellence...Ditch your preconceptions, forget the fact it was almost lost in development hell and simply accept it as one of the most essential videogame experiences of the moment.
