Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

 

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is about maintaining a brand. Following the release of Source, there was a division in the community. While many would move on to Source for it’s revamped visuals and more forgiving mechanics, purists largely stuck with...

Global Offensive is pure Counter-Strike. Hidden Path have made an inoffensive compromise between the best parts of the old versions. Whether it’ll be the definitive thing is yet to be seen. However, it’s an all-around decent FPS and is likely the most...

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Review

 

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a solid update to a classic shooter.

The intense, skill-based combat of Counter-Strike is as enthralling as ever ; Low price ; New modes put a clever spin on classic Counter-Strike

The traditional CS modes are excellently balanced. Games are fast-paced without being unmanageable, skill is rewarded in both the planning and outfitting stages as well as in battle, and good teamwork typically beats individual skills. Pacing is...

Valve's newest Counter-Strike changes up the classic formula and brings it to consoles. How does Global Offensive live up to the legacy?

Global Offensive is definitely a Counter-Strike sequel -- it looks and feels familiar, with minor tweaks here and there to help balance old issues and surprise longtime players. This is a demanding, skill-based multiplayer game that's as satisfying now...

Counter-Strike (CS) players fall into three distinct groups - those who've been playing since the (supposed) definitive version 1.6 (or earlier), Source fans who've put up with the aforementioned group's moans that Source is a waste of time, and...

10v10, last one left alive, killing the final 4 enemies to feel like a boss.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Preview

 

Counter-Strike is a well-known name among multiplayer fanatics. I still remember when Counter-Strike: Source came out and several of my friends would play nothing else. But it has routinely been a PC-oriented franchise, so console owners should be...

So the core gameplay is definitely there, and they obviously want some new players to get involved in the Counter-Strike universe. They’re bringing updated visuals, ELO matchmaking, and dedicated servers to this experience, and for only $14.99, you...

The king of online shooters returns and is just as deadly as you remember. Our full review.

Good, twitch game play ; Simple in concept ; Smooth online ; Nice in-game interface

Floaty movement ; Unimpressive visuals ; Lack of diverse modes

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

 

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is trying to have its cake and eat it.

Still love the AK47 ; Updates are properly thought out ; New modes go down well

Shame there's no new maps for classic modes

You will die, of course, because Counter-Strike is really hard. I've easily sunk over 1000 hours into the game over the years, and I found myself on the receiving end of hundreds of headshots since attempting to get to grips with Global Offensive. The...

Counter-Strike Global Offensive Review

 

This is it, then - the next chapter in one of the greatest first-person multiplayer shooter franchises the PC has to offer, now with added console support.

Layers of polish typical of a Valve game ; Nails the 'just one more go' multiplayer hook ; New range of grenades are a blast

Don't expect too much more than Counter-Strike Source Deluxe ; Arranging matches in Competitive mode is a chore ; Er... where's my MP5

Could this be the worst CS since Condition Zero?

If you are an avid Counter-Strike gamer, then CS;GO is a no-brainer for you. It's the same fast, furious and difficult gameplay you've enjoyed for over a decade, back for more with a minor selection of new weapons, a HD coat of paint and two game modes...
