Excerpt: Heroes of Newerth is a multiplayer online battle arena computer game, developed by S2 Games. Akin to games such as Dota and League of Legends each team has up to five players, each controlling one character. There are three lanes all with different pros and cons, and every 30 seconds creeps will spawn from your base mindlessly attacking anything in their way, use these creeps to either push the lane, take cover behind them (like a meatwall) and put up some distance...
Pros: Free to play
Cons: The HoN community is about the worst you can find, prepare to be mentally abused if you mess up .
Excerpt: I bought Heroes of Newerth back in August of 2009. Ever since the first day i played this game i have always been very happy with the constant updates being made to improve the gameplay of all the players. Not only does the game have a one time only cost (no monthly fees) but also comes with constant updates to improve gameplay and listen to the players to cater to their every want for the game. Therefore it is always changing, but for the better.
Pros: Great graphics . Customizable hotkeys . Very good value for content . Great game for all skill levels
Cons: Very little to none . Any problems get fixed ASAP with the constant updates
Excerpt: Heroes of Newerth is a reboot of an old Warcraft 3 map that gained a steady enough following that it pretty much became an entire game by itself; Defense of the Ancients, or DotA. While Heroes of Newerth shows tons of polish in its performance, enjoying the game pretty much relies on the player either being a very competitive and/or patient person while learning how to play.
Pros: Extremely polished, constantly updated and balanced by the developers .
Cons: Purely a multiplayer game, and caters to a very specific crowd . Very newbie unfriendly .
