Heroes Of Newerth Review
Similar to Smite and League of Legends Heroes of Newerth is a session based multiplayer game where players have to choose a playable character at the beginning of each game round. There are dozens of playable heroes in Heroes of Newerth, each of which have access to 4 unique ability, which consist of 3 basic skills and 1 ultimate power. As players progress through each game round they earn experience points which can then be used to upgrade current skills or unlock new ones, giving players full control over their hero progression each match.
Although Heroes of Newerth shares many features with other popular MOBA title there’s one specific area that it excels in, stat tracking. Just by viewing any of the currently release hero pages you’re able to see detailed, server-wide statistics for each playable character. These stats include total matches played, victories and defeats, time played, and more. These hugely in-depth stats give players access to far more information than is available in any other MOBA title.
Heroes of Newerth also features a huge selection of items that players are able to use to customize their current heroes. Every minion kill, player kill or assist, grants players in-game gold that can be used to purchase items. These items all affect your heroes statistics in different ways, offering players almost endless possibilities for builds and character tweaking.
