  1. Responsive control helps make the game an enjoyable play. [Oct 2004, p.124]
  2. Little fun is to be had from this experience, for any thrills will be derived from the first couple levels, if at all.
  3. To the game’s credit, the constantly progressing storyline and environments do give Around the World in 80 Days some pizzazz, but it can’t completely hide the repetitive, rudimentary gameplay.
  4. 35
    It's one of those games that cuts so many corners, you almost don't even notice that the same musical track plays through the whole thing because you've lowered your expectations so much.
  5. There aren't any two player options and the main game is remarkably short. There isn't anything to make you want to play Around The World In 80 Days again, particularly not the tedious and often frustrating gameplay.
  6. The skillful martial arts of the real Jackie Chan have been simplified to a poorly animated jump, punch, and kick. Even these few gameplay elements are not well developed: there are few times when a kick is better than a punch, aside from breaking the monotony.
  7. 10
    Absolutely worthless. If you see this game in the trash, don't bother fishing it out. Your life is too short to waste it on this stuff.
