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."
Unrivaled shooting game!LShun | Feb. 7, 2015 | See all LShun's reviews »
Its been some time, before I went into this game I often go into MOBA games. Things has now changed, I started to play the competitive matches and all of the member's are friendly, the community is so much better than some of the games out there. This is what a FPS game should be like, Communication, communication and communication!
Except for that, the superb graphics and how the bullet responds to every of your killing blow is fascinating, Counter Strike really put some physics and not make everyone in the team a muscular 20-year's trained FBI with little to no much recoil to spamming rounds of bullets.
The slowdown effect of getting squeezed in by a bullet really matter's between life and death, the armor is much more real as some bullets can easily penetrate thick armor with a few accurate shots.
Fierce bullets like those generated by the unmatched AWP can go through windows and doors or even kill 2 people at once! This game really make the details shine!
I really recommend this game to anyone who like to play with a team of great communication and enjoyment!

Ok, everybody knows counter-strike right? It has been out for 15 years. It rocks because of it's simplicity. Two factions against each other: Terrorists and the opposite. Nice set of weapons, one objective and let the game begin!
Yup that's all you can say about this franchise. And it didn't grow much since 1999. Should it? Maybeee, maybe not. It's still entertaining and the graphics are pretty. This title has a huuuge fan community and that is not a coincidence.
Ok, so CS:GO is definitely a great game, and if you fancy a fast, yet exciting gameplay, buy it, this price is worth it. But don't expect more then written above.
Cuick Scope: GO is the real name of this gameTheCorvette | Feb. 3, 2015 | See all TheCorvette's reviews »
This is definitely one of the best competitive FPS games ever. With a huge community of people with different skills, once you're done with this and go back to your little COD games you'll be no scopin' like it's nobodies business. This game might seem challenging at first but isn't that what makes us real men (and women). Normally, people would care about the graphics and all that good stuff but that isn't what makes this game amazing. It's the fact that it's fun, challenging, and that it has a huge variety of player created maps which are amazing if you can find a cool one. #recommended #noscope #mustbuy
An Amazing Game!SNAPLOAD111 | Jan. 9, 2015 | See all SNAPLOAD111's reviews »
With 200+ hours in game and still playing everyday, I can assure you that this game is the finest FPS game that I have ever played. CS : GO is a skill based FPS games with tons of workshop content and awesome community servers. For only 15$ (regular price) you get a game with good graphics even today & great maps with few game modes.It's worth the 15$ and I'll even pay more if needed. The only reason I give it 95 instead of 100 is the price of the good looking skins. The skins give you no advantage and by buying the game you get the hole deal, but after you will get into the game you would like to have some nice skins and a knife,and oh dear the knives are so expensive. Overall the best game I have played in a long time and surely the best FPS game I have played in my life. I give this game a rating of 95/100. If you like FPS games don't even bother yourselves thinking, just get it!
Probably the best game on SteamPrivatePuncake | Dec. 21, 2014 | See all PrivatePuncake's reviews »
I'm just going to start this review by saying that CS:GO (Counter-Strike: Global Offensive) is one of the best games on Steam. Although its community is not so... kind, the gameplay is amazing! It is fast paced, full of action, and will bring an infinite amount of joy. In fact, you can even make money from CS:GO from the community market. You can earn item drops at the end of matches, which you can sell on the Steam community market, or trade for other items of value. It is a must have game. There is professional CS:GO, competitive matches, great graphics, and a community market.
