no, i never noticed it was an american voiceover - and he could do tom baker too?!?! that's amazing!!! so i guess he was an old dr who or little britian fan - though was little britian even on TV when galleon was made?
yes, rhama WAS a great character, and when you controlled him, at speed you really got the idea that he was an unstoppable force - he kind of commanded his environment, unlike lara who always kind of stuggled thru an environment - i guess in this respect, he was more like the prince from the POP games, and now altair and enzio from assassin's creed, though none of these games characters quite have the smoothness of motion thru the environment as rhama, and of course, galleon pre-dated these games and to some extent, zelda: the wind waker
i still think galleon is worth revisiting one day, if you ever have the opportunity - it's got some great elements - exploring islands, navigating the high seas, huge monsters....all fantastic in wind waker, too, but there simply aren't many adventure games like this
