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."

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.
Absolutely brilliant gameAmehmo | Sept. 15, 2014 | See all Amehmo's reviews »
To be totally honest this is the first counter strike game i ever played, i went into this game absolutely sucking as my only past encounters with fps games were the likes of call of duty. The difference between a game like this and a game like COD is the simplicity involved within this game. You can play competitively and still have a great time. As a result of this many people do not find the need to rage at team mates and the product of this is an amazing, welcoming community for this game. If you are looking for a game that you can climb ranks to prove your worth against others and still enjoy yourself at the same time, then i encourage you to buy this game. Of course counter strike is NOT battlefield or COD, but then its not meant to be, it is a game in a league of its own.

What is there to say? This is the old, addictive multiplayer game remade in high quality visuals.
New modes such as arms race and demolition are a fun addition to the game. New weapons such as the PP-Bizon, MAG-7 and incendiary grenades are fun to use - and offers
much more deeper thought of strategy.
Even now, CS(CS:GO) remains fun and addictive as a game where players can simply "jump in for a quick funtime" with bots or friends in a LAN or over the Internet. This is far more better than playing COD clones.
