Excerpt: Galleon est l'incarnation même du mot acharnement. Initialement prévu pour sortir sur Dreamcast, le titre s'est vu sans cesse repoussé pour finalement atterrir sur Xbox. Au lieu de suivre la voie de la raison et saborder son projet en plein développement, le studio Confounding Factor s'est acharné pour le mener à son terme. Résultat, à la place du flambant galion qu'on nous faisait miroiter, on vogue en pleine galère. Voyez plutôt.
