Conclusion: Unless comical mischief is disallowed in your household, Outpost Kaloki X is a great family game that can teach the kiddies about resource management and making (instead of spending) money at an early age. Who knows - maybe they’ll be the next Donald Trump of the solar system. Fans of tycoon-style gaming will finally feel like they have a place in the console world too. Have fun making that paper!
Excerpt: Xbox Live Arcade has put some cool games on the Xbox 360, and has very much helped 360 owners cope with the rather slow trickle of 360 titles to hit the market. Some of these XBLA games are original, some are greatest hits, and some are games that had made an impression on PC gamers as an indy release and now find a second audience on the Xbox. A great example of the last type of game is Outpost Kaloki X.
Summary: One of the most unlikely Xbox Live Arcade games to launch alongside the Xbox 360 is Outpost Kaloki X, a lighthearted strategy game in which you're in charge of running a space station serving all kinds of intergalactic denizens and their weird needs. Similar to other tycoon-style games, Outpost Kaloki X is really a game about maximizing cash flow as you outfit your outpost with sci-fi lemonade stands, video arcades, singles bars, and other stranger diversions, all while...
Pros: Nice, brisk strategic gameplay makes you manage intergalactic assets, Lighthearted storylines and various mission objectives help keep you going, Good amount of content, including objective-based and free-form scenarios
Cons: Underlying gameplay can start to feel routine fairly soon, Not much variety in the presentation
Summary: Chances are if you have owned a Playstation in the past then you will know the Devil May Cry franchise. Well thanks to the increasingly high costs of creating computer games for current generation consoles, Capcom have made the smart move to bring the series multi-platform. That means that all you lucky Xbox 360 owners can all get a taste of what all the fuss is about (sorry Wii owners, hamsters on a wheel cannot run this graphical masterpiece).
Pros: Beautifully presented, Incomparable cinematic cutscenes, Challenging fast paced combat
Cons: Frustrating camera issues, Continual déjà-vu, Death is brutal and save points tear jerking
Conclusion: Au final, les amateurs de gestion trouveront en Outpost X Kaloki un excellent produit, qui en plus de proposer une réalisation graphique et sonore cartoon totalement rafraîchissante, s'articule autour d'un gameplay à la fois simplifié au maximum tout en se montrant suffisamment complet, et une durée de vie tout à fait honorable. Le Xbox-Live Arcade n'a décidément pas fini de nous surprendre !
Pros: Le gameplay simplifié et complet à la fois, L'ambiance loufoque, La durée de vie à la hauteur
Cons: Les musiques sont réussies, mais malheureusement vite répétitives, Le timing trop juste de certaines missions
Excerpt: Un'avvocato, un paese desolato in mezzo alle Alpi, una scomparsa misteriosa e un'eredità. Riusciremo ad aiutare Kate Walker nella sua avventura?

Il gioco ci vede nei panni di Kate Walker, avvocato in carriera di New York, cui è stato dato il compito di occuparsi di una semplice eredità, semplice sulla carta.
