    They are Billions is a masterpiece in the genre! It mixes the mechanics we fans all know from classics like Starcraft and C&C, with survival/hord mechanics we have seen in other genres. The result is one of the best RTS games i have played in decades (consoles or PC).

    Si te gustan los juegos de estrategia rollo Age of Empires, la temática zombie y la auto-superación en juegos difíciles, este juego te va a encantar!

    Es un juego muy complicado, ya no solo en el modo difícil, sino que el modo fácil también es difícil! Cuando vienen hordas de zombies es cuando empiezas a temblar porque sabes que todo lo que has construido va a ser fulminado por estos

    Es un juego muy complicado, ya no solo en el modo difícil, sino que el modo fácil también es difícil! Cuando vienen hordas de zombies es cuando empiezas a temblar porque sabes que todo lo que has construido va a ser fulminado por estos seres no muertos.

    Es muy entretenido y adictivo. Los controles han sido bien adaptados para los mandos de PS4, de manera que se hace ameno jugar con gamepad.

    Si te gustan los juegos de estrategia, este juego va a suponer todo un reto para ti!

    They Are Billions does a lot of things great. The survival twist of a city-builder is unique, and lots of fun. Dealing with the huge waves is always as fun as it is stressful, including the huge final waves. Things that hold the game back are difficulty playing a computer game on console controls, and various UI and graphics issues as well as slowdown. This being said, it's a solid and unique RTS title.

    They Are Billions boasts strong central ideas about pulling yourself up by your bootstraps to industrialize in the face of grave danger. This is done incredibly well, from the aesthetics to the music and especially the upgrade trees. All of these work in tandem so well that it's cool to see, but unfortunately, the follow-through for the console version isn't done well enough. This on its own is pretty damning, and coupled with the strange aesthetics makes the game considerably less enjoyable. The PC version may run better with the controls, interface and menus.

    This game is best played up close – as you would with a computer monitor – and not half a room away on your sofa. While we don’t doubt that with its tight strategy gameplay and weekly challenges it’s a compelling title on its native platform, here it leaves much to be desired. [Issue#166, p.92]
