Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) will expand upon the team-based action gameplay that it pioneered when it was launched 12 years ago.
CS: GO features new maps, characters, and weapons and delivers updated versions of the classic CS content (de_dust, etc.). In addition, CS: GO will introduce new gameplay modes, matchmaking, leader boards, and more.
"Counter-Strike took the gaming industry by surprise when the unlikely MOD became the most played online PC action game in the world almost immediately after its release in August 1999," said Doug Lombardi at Valve. "For the past 12 years, it has continued to be one of the most-played games in the world, headline competitive gaming tournaments and selling over 25 million units worldwide across the franchise. CS: GO promises to expand on CS' award-winning gameplay and deliver it to gamers on the PC as well as the next gen consoles and the Mac."
One of the best competitive gamesBanana28 | Nov. 24, 2015 | See all Banana28's reviews »
It's easy to start playing CS:GO, but it's very hard to master. It requires teamwork, aim, game-sense and of course controlling the recoil, which makes it different from other FPS games. The game itself is pay-to-play, but not pay-to-win. All in-game purchases are purely cosmetic. The graphics aren't very good, but the gameplay is. For example if you encounter an enemy, you must decide whether to throw a flashbang and run away or to stay and fight. But it's much more complicated because if you miss even one shot, it may lead your team to defeat. I gave it 75 because it's too competitive. you can't play CS:GO for fun, unless you're on a non-official server.
COD players beware!09baydas | Nov. 7, 2015 | See all 09baydas's reviews »
COD players beware: this is no ordinary FPS. CS:GO combines teamwork and tactics to create an excellent strategy game. There are few standard maps considering its age and popularity, but this doesn’t matter as you’ll probably spend your first 100 hours playing Dust 2, the most popular counter strike map. And if you don’t like the standard maps, there are loads available on the steam workshop. I have played more hours in this game than the rest of my library combined (as of 07.11.15) and I might be addicted. The graphics suck, but if you only care for good graphics go play the Witcher 3, this game is not for you. One final comment: this game will end up cheaper or more expensive than what you pay as you will get skin and case drops in game which you can equip in game or sell on the community market. Don’t be surprised if you end up spending a lot on these skins and cases even though they are purely cosmetic – there is no in-game advantage to these.
One of the best games i have come pastalphonts | Nov. 2, 2015 | See all alphonts's reviews »
It is either you love it, or you hate it. A lot of people dislike the game because of the integrated skins but to me, that is just a little $ in my pocket. You would think it would be like call of duty or Battlefield but you are wrong. It has a very different feel to it with competitive gameplay. In my opinion, this game is one of the best FPS games on the market so i would recommend buying this game when it goes on sale. I'm telling you now, you will make your money back!

Skins, competitive play teamwork and new updates everywhere. This is a must have game. Yes it had OK graphics sure the recoil and bullet patterns are annoying but that is what adds to the fun.
Best tactical game EVERAghass | Sept. 30, 2015 | See all Aghass's reviews »
This game is a fluid and addicting fps with elements of strategy combined to make smorgasbord of goodness. Although very difficult at first one will appreciate the amount of work put into this game and will always get better. If you are up to the challenge you can get into tournaments for money. The reason it's 98 not a hundred is the skin system which works very well I just don't like paying for extra things. Remember, this is a multiplayer game so there will be annoying people. Also just because the guy has a skin does not mean he's good, just look at me!
