Computer Gaming World (CGW)
Course changes, gunnery practice, ship repairs and more are delegated to the crew via a simple mouse interface and each decision impacts the success of the expedition. The player must contend with the same kinds of situations and crises that Magellan faced. Based on historical facts and easy to play.
Power Play
Die Idee von Galleons of Glory ist sicher nicht schlecht - hält sich doch der Klassiker "Pirates" mit einem ähnlichen Segelschiffszenario seit Jahren an der Spitze der Lesergunst. Leider säuft die glorreiche Galleone schon nach kurzer Spielphase mangels Abwechslung ab. Immer in Richtung Süden segeln, die Mannschaft bei Laune halten, Eingeborene vertrimmen oder mit Glasperlen bestechen: nicht besonders aufregend. Grafisch reißt mich dieses Spiel ebenfalls nicht vom Hocker: EGA-Simpel-Bilder, die aus einem Malbuch für 5jährige stammen könnten, sind nicht mehr ganz zeitgemäß.
