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."
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.

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.
How epic is CS:GO Really?sonicasdfasdf | Aug. 23, 2014 | See all sonicasdfasdf's reviews »
CS:GO is a very good fps, compared to CS 1.6. Although CS:GO is the latest counter strike series, the game is worse than CS:S. Reason being is due to the game-play and additions. All retro fans will agree with me. Another reason why CS:GO is not the best FPS is due to the updates (Usually a good FPS would update a lot to keep out 'so called hackers' (aimbotters) but CS:GO barley updates.
Rating 7/10 - Decent game! If you think CS:GO is a good top range FPS game then your right-wrong. I hope you enjoy this game, but in my experience I haven't
Fun and still fun!ash_arani | Aug. 16, 2014 | See all ash_arani's reviews »
I love the Counter Strike franchise and I have grown up playing it around 12 years ago.
Global Offensive keeps the same style with improved graphics. I initially thought that it would take away from the game. But I was wrong. The game is still amazing (and addictive).
And it is super competitive. Great fun. Highly recommended!
