They Are Billions offers an almost perfect gameplay loop, mixing tower-defence with city building and exploration, as you balance resource-management, defence and offense, all against your ever-impending doom at the hands of a world infested with the undead. The only downside to a game that looks and sounds great, offering a tense experience in a compelling setting, is a campaign that doesn't fully make-use of the gameplay loop perfected by Numantian Games, leaving the campaign feeling weak, compared to the survival mode, which is the real draw.

They Are Billions remains a tight and compelling strategy game. The knowledge that you're always just one misstep away from disaster creates a gripping, tense atmosphere that's unusual for the genre. And the cycle from defense to offense and back again as you progress from one wave to the next offers both well-paced urgency and the ability to set clear short-term goals. It's a smartly designed game at its core. It just needed to realize that sometimes that's enough.

They Are Billions is an interesting mashup of classic RTS, tower defense, and survival that successfully conjures up that “one more game” feel, assuming you can persevere through countless defeats.

They Are Billions is a game based on just a single trick that’s up its undead sleeve. But it’s a hell of a trick, one that’ll keep you ensnared in its tangled web of survival for dozens and dozens of hours as the undead march upon your best base-building efforts.

They are Billions is a great game that is lacking in content. The idea behind it – a survival strategy with "realistic" zombie mechanics – is fantastic and the actual mechanics behind it are well thought out and make for a deep and enthralling strategy, if one that may be a little too challenging for some. If that sounds great to you then being light on content may not matter, as there aren't many, if any other games that fit into this particular niche.

Un juego muy disfrutable para los amantes de la estrategia, con algunas buenas ideas y que resulta especialmente divertido en su modo supervivencia, pero que pierde impacto en una campaĂąa que no estĂĄ demasiado inspirada.

Tras pasar con notable éxito por el Acceso Anticipado, They Are Billions se ha enfrentado a su prueba de fuego y la ha pasado con éxito. Es cierto que la campaña no aguanta el tirón de alargar una fórmula que es algo más limitada de lo que necesita un RTS para durar tantas horas. Sin embargo las sensaciones de tensión y angustia son tan brutales y el juego necesita tanta atención por nuestra parte que es una experiencia que, como mínimo, hay que probar… ¡Y sufrir!

Knallharte Echtzeitschlachten gegen Zombiemassen, mit gut verzahntem Basisbau & Wirtschaftssystem. Toller Survivalmodus, schwache Kampagne.

Die Mischung aus Aufbau, Expansion und Verteidigung funktioniert im Survival-Modus richtig gut. Die Kampagne hingegen enttäuscht auf ganzer Linie.

Attention, They Are Billions n'est pas vraiment à mettre entre toutes les mains. Si vous ne supportez pas d'être frustré à la moindre erreur, ne vous y essayez même pas. Le titre demande une attention permanente et un bon sens de la gestion stratégique. Une fois ces deux paramètres réunis, vous voilà parti pour une aventure de longue haleine, dans un genre rarement vu auparavant.

They Are Billions mescola un ritmo da city builder con la tensione di un souls-like (ecco, sono riuscito a tirarli in mezzo!) in salsa strategica, e per farlo purifica entrambi i generi filtrandone l’essenza più basilare. Nel cocktail che ne esce, la parte gestionale è quella che dà più gusto, mentre l’altra ne esce diluita, appiattita e ridotta a una questione di quantità invece che di qualità. Rimane comunque un titolo dalla forte personalità, anche estetica, che gode di un carisma tutto suo, fiero dei propri tratti distintivi e di non scendere a compromessi.

They Are Billions به جز زامبی‌هایش، چیز متفاوتی نسبت به بازی‌های بزرگ این ژانر ندارد اما با این وجود چیزی نیز از آن‌ها کم ندارد و شاید بتوان گفت در بعضی نقاط کاملا هم شبیه آن‌ها است. چیزی که قطعا می‌توان درباره آن گفت این است که این بازی به هیچ وجه متناسب با ویژگی‌های کنسول‌ و کنترلرهایش نیست و بهتر است که بر روی خانه اصلی آن یعنی رایانه‌های شخصی تجربه شود.
