Heroes of Newerth

Strategy Informer
6 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Heroes of Newerth is an intriguing mix of frenetic action and tactical gameplay, showcasing some of the very best aspects of it's still-evolving genre. Be warned though, it's not the best choice of entertainment for a relaxed Sunday afternoon, and is probably best played after chugging a few cans of relentless and shouting at your own reflection for half an hour.

  • Conclusion: The gamer in me wants to tell you that this game is extremely fun - an absolute blast to play, because that's the truth. On the other hand, the critic in me wants to tell you that you'll have a hell of a time getting to the point where the game is fun, and that's also true. Think really hard about whether or not you're willing to put in the time to learn Heroes of Newerth, because you'll need plenty of it.

  • Conclusion: A fairly arcane design and an unfriendly community make for difficult entry barriers. The mechanics are honed and solid, though.

Heroes of Newerth (PC) - Review

VGChartz
25 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Defense of the Ancients ( DotA ) has come a long way from its humble beginnings as a custom map for the original StarCraft . It only really took off in popularity with its release and refinement in WarCraft III , from which point it went on to feature in the World Cyber Games and has become the sole inspiration for several full retail releases that have been built solely around the concept.

Heroes of Newerth PC Review

DarkZero
10 June 2010
  • Excerpt: Many an hour have I spent scrolling my mouse cursor over goblins and orcs, and many an hour have I spent revelling in their summary dismemberment or, if nothing else, salivating at the experience and loot they are soon to dispense. So when I was told that Heroes of Newerth was a hardcore game, for hardcore players, I jumped at the chance to delve into the depths of a game that was eager to satisfy my urge for number-crunching, effect-stacking and minion-slaying.

  • Excerpt: Dans la lutte impitoyable qui sévit entre les successeurs de DotA (Defense of the Ancients, un mod très populaire de Warcraft III), on n’attendait plus qu’un dernier concurrent : Heroes of Newerth, développé par S2 Games, l’équipe derrière Savage 1 et 2. Résolument tourné vers le pro-gaming, ce dernier se montre sans conteste le plus fidèle à l’original, mais pas forcément le plus fun à pratiquer pour qui n’est pas friand de compétition.

  • Conclusion: Nachdem ich mir mehrere Tage den neusten Ableger von DotA um die Ohren gehauen habe, kann ich durchaus resümieren, dass auch HoN jede Menge Spaß und Action mitbringt. Die Helden sind cool, die typische DotA Atmosphäre ist von Anfang an mit am Start und das Matchmaking-System sorgte für stets ausgeglichene Spielrunden und ließ mich seltener die Zähne knirschen, als bei League of Legend und Demigod, trotz einiger Niederlagen.
  • Pros: extra Serverbrowser, funktionierendes Matchmaking System, ausbalancierte Helden
  • Cons: schwieriger Einstieg trotz Tutorials, hebt sich kaum von anderen DotA-Titeln ab, teils längere Ladezeiten, kein LAN-Modus

  • Conclusion: <break>Helden braucht das Land. Und zwar einen ganzen Haufen, denn Heroen haben einen Nachteil: Sie sterben bekanntlich früh. In Heroes of Newerth mimt ihr gleich mehrere tapfere Krieger. Nachdem die geschlossene Beta nun schon eine Weile ausgelaufen ist, haben wir uns ausführlich in Newerth ausgetobt.
  • Pros: Schicke Präsentation, Ordentliche Balance der Helden, Ausführliches Tutorial..., Spannende Teamschlachten, Sehr guter Serverbrowser, Enorme taktische Vielfalt, Heldenfähigkeiten ergänzen sich, Motivierendes Level- und Aufrüstsystem
  • Cons: Kein LAN-Modus, Geringer Kartenumfang, ... trotzdem lange Einspielzeit für Anfänger, Keine innovativen Verbesserungen, Deutsche Fassung momentan fehlerhaft
