There can be no doubt that 60 Seconds! ranks among the more hilarious and unexpected additions to the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch. But it’s also a game that isn’t without its shortcomings, whether that be ever so awkward button input or worries around its longevity. There’s still fun to be found in surviving a world now ridden with mutant cockroaches, but your enthusiasm to exist in it is likely to last for as long as the family survives in the shelter before giving up.
Between good and horrible, 60 Seconds! is almost horrible. The gameplay and dialogue is repetitive, horrible and buggy controls, and annoying glass-breaking sounds make your whole first 60 seconds of playthrough a waste of your time.
If you are wanting a tough and challenging stilized release on Nintendo Switch, then you should give 60 Seconds! Other than the controls which feel a bit awkward, the game offers an interesting take on the survival genre.
60 Seconds! is a blast (groan).
All told, 60 Seconds! is a disappointing addition to Switch's growing library and one that we would recommend you take a pass on. Although the idea at its core isn't half bad, there's very little here that we would say is done well, and given that there's no shortage of excellent games on the Switch eShop, you'd be better off spending your money on something else. Big fans of survival games might find some enjoyment in this one, but we'd recommend you pick up The Flame In The Flood instead, or wait for more survival titles to arrive.
