Unique adventure tale is cool, can be a bit hard to follow.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Kids who enjoy a bit of adventure, a lot of reading, and figuring things out on their own will thoroughly enjoy this text-based experience. 80 Days is creative and unique and certainly worth taking a look at. The choose-your-own adventure aspect is a clever way to engage kids in a story. However, it can result in some choppy storylines. And the rough nature of international travel of the time is loosely reflected in this tale, making it less appropriate for younger kids. Many kids will struggle with the reading level, but they can generally understand what's going on, even if they miss the finer points. So, while it's not perfect, 80 Days brings something new and interesting to the table, and has some replayability for kids who want to know where the other paths lead.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
