Costas Stephanides’s Review

Ever thought you could plan the perfect robbery?



Stolen In Sixty Seconds (SSS) could have been something to do with stealing loads of fast cars while drooling in your southern accent. No doubt the lawyers would have something to say about that and SSS actually sits closer to the Italian Job.

The aim of the game is to break into jewellery shops and banks and relieve them of their valuables. This isn't a Tom Clancy style game and you do not go in guns blazing. SSS is a game of planning and problem solving. Each robbery has to be meticulously prepared before you even set foot outside of your den. Once the plan has been concocted, the robbery itself almost runs on auto pilot.

What do you need to commit the perfect crime? Above men with the right tools, the number 1 requirement is information. Before each robbery you have the option to pay an informant for vital information. This can include alarm details and where the real valuables are hidden. Next up is hiring your crew. Each villain will have their own attributes; for example a science geek for the bombs and a bruiser for all the heavy work. Once you have assigned their tools, it's time to plan the job. The planning stage revolves around a map of the building where you are free to plan your robbery in immaculate detail. Every move is measured in seconds and this aspect becomes very important in later levels. You need to carefully time your actions and get the job completed before the alarm triggers the police. Even the tutorial isn't the easiest and the difficulty ramps up quite quickly - expect lots of attempts.

The main issues with the game are the graphics and in-game help. The general graphics are very basic for today's modern handsets. The overhead view isn't the best and it takes a lot of flicking to the help and back to figure out the difference between some of the internal features and therefore which tool is the most suited.

Even with these faults, Stolen in Sixty Seconds is a good strategy game. Just be aware that there is very little real action and you shouldn't be disappointed.
