Counter Strike: Global Offensive
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
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."
Brilliant game!cubecka | Dec. 7, 2014 | See all cubecka's reviews »
Classic ... what more. from 1.6 to go I think it's about everyone and I can only say that I go over and I enjoy it a lot. Everything here is good be it graphic page or other such as trade (skins). No matter what I regret there are servers which are sometimes difficult to connects to the ban which receives about for each bullshit ... for example, kick players ... I think that when the team are in agreement about we throw him the way for nothing for anything when it is Lagger or the like. But I'm happy hravam it every day and definitely recommend!
My rate 9,4/10
The Best Competitive GameFreeze256 | Dec. 4, 2014 | See all Freeze256's reviews »
This game keeps bringing me back, its my favorite in the series.The game is still fun when played alone but you often might get trolls or not so skilled players and might get frustrating.I suggest finding some friends and play as 3 or get a whole team of 5 the game that way is really entertaining and has a great replayability value.Its is a balanced game with some over powered guns and some really bad ones but players play fair and rarlely do they use them.It is a competitive game and you will often find players that rage when they lose but dont do that everyone is giving their best.Its not a fps like battlefield or cod, the best players are the ones that know how to control the recoil and spread of their gun.But remember, knowing how to use your gun is just 40% of the key to victory, the other 60% is teamwork.

This is the newest and probably the best Counter Strike.Not Pay To Win.And the DLC makes this game even better.This game remains fun and addictive to play with your friends.The aim is not as easy as COD or Battlefield,u need practice to be good in this game.
Over 200 hours in game still love itSeanJ | Oct. 26, 2014 | See all SeanJ's reviews »
Love this game so much I started out playing counter strike source back in 2006 and put about 1600 hours in. I never played much competitively back in source but loved the game play very intense and very good game to get friends together and use teamwork to defeat the enemy team. There are also community servers with lots of mods and fun casual gameplay. The physics are able to be manipulated in you own server and is allot of fun to mess around with friends doing so! CS GO has a great matchmaking system it does a good job of matching the ranks of people for good fair matches. Awesome game love it allot nothing really bad to say about it.
Modernized and polished Counter Strikemidgetjacks | Oct. 4, 2014 | See all midgetjacks's reviews »
Okay, so I've only ever been a casual fan of Counter Strike, playing it off and on since the early days of the mod. I like it, but am also pretty bad because I never put in the time. That being said, I still come back because the core gameplay is still fun. And a case can probably be made that this crazy mod influenced the tilt away from WW2 (finally) to modern combat. So if you're wondering if the gameplay still holds up 14 years later, the answer is yes, yes it does.
