  1. 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.
  2. While certainly not as in-depth as some other games in the tycoon subset of the strategy genre, Outpost Kaloki X does offer plenty of bang for its $10 price tag.
  3. The clean graphics, quirky music and amusing characters and situations you’ll run into help keep things fresh.
  4. If you have a 360 and like strategy games, you need to spend the few dollars on this absolutely outstanding strategy game. Outpost Kaloki X is easy to learn and highly addictive. It's one of those games you'll come back to after the luster of the new Xbox 360 games pass.
  5. The game’s eccentric and peculiar take on micromanagement gives Outpost Kaloki X a fresh and innovate feel that fits perfectly within Microsoft’s new loose “360” attitude, while still offering many nontraditional gamers a more conservative and cerebral experience.

    While there's no online play, OKX is definitely an entertaining and surprisingly deep experience. For anyone looking for a quirky, unique XBLA experience, it's worth it to shell out the MPs to drop this onto your hard drive.
  7. This is a shame, because a management game is a good idea for Live Arcade, which is currently filled with puzzle titles and coin-ops. But Outpost Kaloki X just doesn't have the qualities of Rollercoaster Tycoon - it never feels like you are in charge.

    Very fun game and has a increasing amount of downloadable content being offered. Worth the buy if you like tycoon / strat games.

    A game that doesn't get as much love as it deserves. I fun pick up and play game that also has a deeper strategy as you strive for faster and faster completion times. And Ninja Bee keeps the downloads coming. Some are even free! Expand

    An oddly enjoyable game that is very simple in idea and execution and also a little childish, but allot of fun to play. Not to hard on lower difficulties and a real challenge on harder setting or even trying for all the achievements.

    Overall:
    It may be simple and small, but this little XBLA strategy game is worth a purchase, or at the very least a try.

    It's fun, but won't require much from your brain. It's like those old shareware game that you got from a friend in a worn out diskette when you were in school, played a couple of hours and the forgot about it. In this new world of crappy but fun little games, don't bother with this tittle if it costs more than $3.
    The graphics are crap, the sound is crap. But it is entertaining, and has a bit of humour to it. Doesn't crash and will work properly. Wait for D2D to sell it for $1.99 on a Tuesday.
