Monday Fun #19 (reviews)

My bad? (The last few entries in this vein have started with "oops" because I was late or missed an update, so I figured I'd do something different. It'd be nice if the "something different" didn't involve being late or missing one, for a change...)

This time around I'm in a bit of a quandry. I have a series of semi-related games I'd like to review, one of which at least I don't remember as well as I'd like. I have a game I just started replaying for the PS2 last night that I wouldn't do justice to without more of a chance to review it and see everything it has to offer again (because it's got quite a lot packed into it), and I have an online link that I also just started playing with last night, and need more time to learn before I try to review it.

So... I guess I'll go with the first option, because the one specific game I'm thinking of that I don't remember well isn't one I was planning on giving a glowing recommendation for anyhow. And since this'll include a lot of games, the blurbs will be shorter, anyhow.

So let's get started. We will call this segment: Sailing, sailing, over the bounding main! Because I like really old cheesy references like that. That's just the type of girl I am. And because the games I'm going to all round up involve ships in some way - either taking place almost exclusively on board them, or involving ship trading while you build up an island, or what have you.

Okay, from this point on, the games aren't really the same overall genre of game, and don't necessarily revolve around ships quite as much, but I wanted to branch out a bit so...
