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."

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!

This is the purest fps you
ll ever play, no power ups, no special investments needed to keep up with others, only your skill makes the difference.
I have played Counter Strike for ten years, or more. I liked Counter Strike 1.6, I love Counter Strike Global Offensive. Its a simple game, with a wide collection of weapons and awesome skins.
Unlike CS 1.6, CS GO comes with many modes, from casual to competitive so you can
t get bored, ever. I recommend this game to anyone, its a great game.

Counter Strike Global Offensive, is a new game for the Counter Strike series that features improvements over the old Counter Strike. The graphics feel a lot nicer compared to previous games, but still loses to Counter Strike: Source in some situations.
The weapons and skins available throughout the updates is great. However, graphics feel a little dark, so raising the brightness might help in situations where sniper's are almost invisible in the dark.
The fast game-play and the new radar makes things even more interesting and challenging. The guns and textures are realistic.
The community is also very friendly. Overall, this is a very good game and worth it for 14.99. I would like to see more improvements in the future and happy with this game.

First of all, this isn't your "average FPS" such as CoD or Battlefield. CS:GO really brings competitve FPS to its glory. For someone just picking up the FPS genre and is competitive, then you might like this game. It's helpful to know each weapon and map strategies to dominate the game but if you're just playing for fun, casual modes are perfect. Also Valve is quite generous when it comes to in-game items. Sometimes you might get lucky and get a rare drop after a game or you can unlock a chest to get a cool gun, custom knife, or sticker for your loadout. Everything is fairly priced and for a great shooter, this game is pretty cheap. It might feel awkward but if you give this game a try, you won't regret buying it.
