Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Heroes of Newerth from S2 Games. The game allows two teams of up to five players take on the roles of heroes as they work with AI controlled armies to destroy an enemy team's base. HoN features upgradeable skills, powerful items to purchase, VOIP controls, Clan Support, and dozens of playable Hero characters from which to choose.

Here's an excerpt from the review:

For those unfamiliar with DotA the concept is simple. In this Strategy/RPG blend, you pick a hero and starting from one corner of the map fight your way to the enemies base. In your way are, of course, enemy heroes, defense towers, and the AI's continually spawning waves of units or creeps in predefined lanes. Each lane has a series of defense towers leading up to the enemy base. Destroy the towers and then destroy the enemy base. You level up your hero by killing other enemy heroes, creeps, or destroying towers, and then in standard RPG fashion upgrade your abilities and equipment to become more powerful and effective. A tutorial is available to get you familiar, and the loading screens offer handy tips on gameplay.

Heroes of Newerth lives up to its name by having a large selection of heroes to choose from. From the towering Behemoth to the diminutive yet deadly Nymphora, there's something to suit your style of play. Each hero is placed on a side, The Hellbourne or The Legion, as well as a category, either strength, agility or intelligence. You can mix and match either side's heroes on a team, and no hero is particularly "better" than another, though some heroes are more effective versus certain foes. Each hero has three abilities plus an ultimate skill, as well as six slots to hold equipment and items. Some heroes are easy to manage, with only one or two active skills, while others require precise micromanaging to get the best out of them. With over 70 heroes and counting it will take you some time to work through them all and find your favorites, but its always fun to try a new hero, and if you really want there is a practice mode in which you play solo and test out skills and items.
