Amana, there is no agreeing or disagreeing with this 'review'.
Your website has posted a biased article with outright lies in it. I highly advise you get someone to take this down before you likely get sued for libel.
Edit: Sorry for double post.
Oh no I've been accused of being overly dramatic.
What ever will I do.
Go troll somewhere else if you have nothing useful to say.
So everyone has pretty much already explained how shitty this review is, i just got one question tho: 2 Staff of the master on Andromeda? Really? AHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA NOOB!!!!!
Why is someone that knows nothing about MOBA games reviewing a MOBA game?
Seriously, one of the cons being too many heroes...one of the worst reviews I've ever seen. I mean for christ sake League of Legends got reviewed and in the "cons" section they are game-crippling cons and it gets an 8.2?
How much did RIOT pay you Bill. Sell-out hack.
mmorpg.com is all about main stream mega corps, When smaller companies remake games that are already out or try to improve apon them mmorpg.com reviewers tell us these games are junk and that we should not play them.
we are the 99%
i got banned for discussing my discust with this website. but im back!
Something tells me that this review was supposed to be called: Heroes of Newerth; "A Newbie's look into the game".
Then, it all makes sense.
In the end, who cares ? Dota 2 >>>>>>>>>> HoN >>>>>>>>>>> LoL.
And, by alot.
But yeah, mmorp.comg are biased, Riot games like to pay, ALOT, for good reviews and publicity.
Ive played several years in DOTA, month or 2 in LoL, and playing HoN from beta
DOTA 2 in its current state is bad copy of HoN, honestly ... probably will be better then HoN later with polishing and improvments (less dinamic, wrong colors sets, still too little features HoN already has)
LoL is, imho, DOTA for dumb generation of 21st century with the generalg trend of being friendly to ...err idiots ? , i mean new players who being too lazy to learn anything. Much less dinamic compared to HoN (imagine Counter-Strike in slow motion , color setting is eye killing.
Still i think LoL has some pros like original heroes with unique skills, ofthen not trying to copy DOTA blindly. And bigger number of heroes with intresting skill sets to choose from is BIG pros for any MOBA game.
I do agree with previous post that LoL got its succes from good advertising and F2P model from start. While i think HoN is much better gameplay-wise.
Can someone explain to me something about HoN and LoL? I've looked at the websites but I'm still unclear. Is there any kind of character development in these games? Or do you start from scratch in every match? Is there any ongoing progress or aims?

LoL has an out game skill tree for character development.
HoN does not and neither will Dota/Dota 2.
Both however have currency that you can earn to buy cosmetic items in the shops.
Hope that helps.
Originally posted by Mizzmo This game is horrid compared to LoL. HoN is a game for 1 type of person, the hardcore elite. LoL is waaayyyyyy more approachable for someone who just wants to have fun. And I am saying that Pre-Dominion. Now that Dominion is out it's even MORE approachable for casual players. LoL has better models, terrain, balance, and scaling. Granted, LoL's models are more cartoony, but they still look better. Oh did I mention LoL has better lore and backstories? Yeah, there is a reason LoL is flourashing right now and HoN isn't.
32 million acounts cause they have a great marketing model and a better game overall.
still its not a MMO dunno why we talking about it here.

Yes, thanks. I see that on Steam they boast that RoI is the first MOBA game to have persistent character progression. Is that an option or not considered as good as HoN and LoL. Not sure I'd be interested in a game without character progression of some sort.
to many heroes is a con is this guy serious and giving league of crap graphics/casual a 8 and hon 5.8 is such a joke. That review was wrote by some scrub that never played dota and neither has a clue about dota game.
This review was the biggest fail I have read thus far on mmorpg.com and am pissed regarding almost everything about it.
Phil Bickle, you're nothing but a fan-loving LoL player. Please don't ever do anymore biased reviews.
Seriously, quit being a "writer" and find a different career.
I played HON for a while and it is a good game. For people who like moba they should try the game. Someone would say its more for hardcore players but that is nonsense. And yea, for moba there is never enough heroes.
This review is just outright biased and has plenty of false information. Why is this allowed? Big paycheck from RIOT or something?
I have played plenty of HoN in both lower brackets while I learned (yes, it's a steep learning curve) and high brackets as I got better. The game is essentialy Dota with new features. Replays, pauses, kicks, spectator mode, mentoring, guilds, etc. That's what Dota players asked for. That's basically what Dota 2 is trying to do now.
Stating thing like casual games start at level 3? That's just a blatant lie. Obvious contradictions in the pros/cons? That's just not professional.
I'll happily admit moving to a free to play model was a bad move. Perhaps they felt it was necessary, but it hurt the game. That's an actual downside. New players get a severely gimped hero selection pool each game unless they play thousands of games for silver coins or spend obscene amounts of real money.
I'll also happily admit the attitude of most players is absolute trash. They're very very unforgiving towards new players, or even vet players who make a mistake. If you're on the losing side in any game, I garuntee your team is playing the blame game.
Apart from that, the game is great. I'd love to know why the review is so obviously biased, and why outright lies are allowed.
I ve been playing HoN for about one year and I must say it s good game but it has definitely the worst community I could see. Bunch of kids insulting all around them just because their whole life means playing games so they feel pro and there isnt anything in real life they can do well so they feel satisfaction when insulting the others in HoN. That s the reason why I have to say that LoL is far better game because community in LoL is nice with lots of kind ppl.
The main thing thats wrong with HON, is the match making system. I have tried all, ranked, non ranked, casual, and normal. It is ultra rare that you get a team that you can play a decent game with. Most of the time is 4vs5, if that doesnt happen the game within tens mins is one team dominating the other, where there is no hope of the other team winning. Most of the time even when its 4vs5 the 4 people win because the match making system is so horrible.
Also what is more, is if you fail in the fist 10 mins, you lost pretty much. Unlike LOL which even if the score is 4/15 by the first 10 there is still a big chance to win.
