    80 Days is an inventive game with plenty of replayability, and it shows that even if an idea is well-known, there’s no reason why that doesn’t make it ripe for reinvention.

    I concluded 80 days feeling the same satisfaction as when finishing a good book, with the added joy of having helped shape the character. Jean and Phileas’ trek is broad, but their stories are wonderfully personal in contrast which isn’t always translated to video games that well. This retelling of a classic novel conveys the spirit of the book while adding the perfect amount of interactivity to make the story of your own. Though I’ve completed one round trip, I’ll be taking a second spin to see how charting a different path changes my next story.

    80 Days almost makes you feel as if you’re fighting the clock as you come across a whole manner of complications while attempting to circumnavigate the globe. It’s a perfect fit for the Switch, whether you’re playing docked or handheld.

    80 Days is a love-letter to the Jules Verne' epic homonym book. With hundreds of cities, automata and different stories, we can ensure that every new journey will look like was the first one. Hours of entertainment and a pleasant reading awaits you - to not say that you can be stuck on the plot.

    80 Days was released on Android and iOS platforms in 2014, and then PC in 2015, but this new release on the Nintendo Switch feels just right. I didn’t play the previous versions, but in handheld mode on the Switch, with haptic feedback in the controllers responding to each decision you make, I found myself lost in this wonderfully vibrant world. You’d do well to add this to your ‘on the go’ library.

    Instead of “just one more chapter” 80 DAYS will have you saying “just one more playthrough”. It might also have you wanting to revisit Jules Verne’s novel. It comes recommended to booklovers and those desiring to a digital taste of the valet lifestyle.

    There are a surprising amount of variables to keep track of when you embark on your journey around the world, but ultimately this doesn't get in the way of the sheer joy of discovering a brand-new location and seeing what potential choices it might present to you. It's not going to be to everyone's tastes, but if you're a fan of Jules Verne, travelling, or culture, then you really need to check this out.

    There's a constant sense of wonder in visiting these glorious cities and meeting interesting characters, and I'm eager to jump back in and see what kind of trouble I can get Passepartout into. Phileas Fogg is just going to have to damn well like it.

    80 Days is a remarkable graphic adventure that will make us live one of the most iconic travels while allowing us to discover the world living adventures and meeting characters. Its length may seem short but the title is very replayable.
