Sixty Second Shooter Prime is a great throwback to the arcade machines of yesteryear, but it lacks the depth and difficulty needed for an old-school twin-stick shooter to appeal to most modern gamers.

With basic graphics and short-lived appeal, it doesn't quite reach the heights of the seminal Geometry Wars on the Xbox 360. But if you're in the mood for a frantic, sometimes punishing twin-stick shooter on the Xbox One, then you will certainly get your fix with Sixty Second Shooter.

If you enjoy twin-stick shooters like Geometry Wars, then maybe you can give this a try. It's definitely a competent game for the genre and will scratch that itch, if you've got it. For me though, the whole time I was playing I just kept thinking about how much better Geometry Wars was, and that I'd rather be playing an HD release of that instead.

After a few hours I did eventually have my fill of Sixty Second Shooter Prime. I played Geometry Wars for months, but while I enjoy and recommend SSSP, I don't think I'll have the same relationship with it.
