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."

Reviews for Counter Strike: Global Offensive

A game people talk about a lot and you wonder what the big deal is

Counter Strike has been around for a very long time. So long that it predates my knowledge in everything related to it. I'm a relatively newbie, if that isn't obvious enough. But that's effectively how I got around to playing Counter Strike: Global Offense. What's a good crash course, you ask? Well, I'm no teacher here. Just your average video game loving nut. However, my love of video games helped me get the gist of it. Counter Strike players feel joy in crouching while shooting; they love to run like the wind with their knives out; they love to bunny hop; and they don't go aiming down any sights. These are the basic points of Counter Strike: Global Offense. It almost seems ridiculous until you play it and wonder why you're doing it too. I'll tell you why: You got caught up in the competitive aspect of it- the will to win and compete. Counter Strike: Global Offense is a multiplayer focused first-person shooter developed by Valve (the very same Valve that operates Steam). It has a strong take on the Cops vs Robbers aspect where you either play as the anti-terrorist unit or terrorists... Pretty extreme, huh? The point of the game is to win. Either individually in some game modes like Arms Race by switching weapons almost every kill or enjoy your time sneaking around with teammates in a elimination or bomb planting game mode like Demolition. It's yours to choose. But in either case, you might get beaten by veterans or become a veteran yourself and beat others. No matter the end result you find yourself having a frustrating yet somewhat enjoyable time to the point where it's almost addictive. So, where does this leave me in my opinion of the game? The most favorable point of it is its multiplayer, but the least favorable is also its multiplayer. Counter Strike: Global Offense can be a fairly frustrating game to play, especially when taking it seriously in competitive game modes, but it can also offer a whole different take in first-person shooting games that you wouldn't see elsewhere these days. I would recommend this game, but not for the faint of heart.

The fully fps enjoyable experience!

Counter-Strike GO at it's best deliver the truly fps gaming. With fulfilled servers all the time, you get to play with friends or random people around the country you live in. Variety of game modes, including the famous 'competitive' mode and weapon drop during the gameplay makes CS:GO totally enjoyable. It's the best FPS to start with and the best FPS to keep playing.

Well Made Competitive FPS

A Very competitive fps revolving around the counter-terrorists and terrorists teams. You can be very skilled individually in aim and game sense, but you need teamwork to succeed, which a team-based game should be. For the decent price you are getting potentiality 1000+ hours on this game, compared to the 50-ish hours on full retail price games. There are some flaws though, such as jumping accuracy, hit registration, and the engine is a bit dated. The e-sport part of the game is flourishing also.

Fantastic online FPS game

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive took the long way to success. It started off with a number of significant flaws, but with time and some substantial patches. As usual, the people who know the game best are the ones who spend every night and most weekends in front of , defusing bombs, hunting some chickens. Also as usual, the people who love the game most are the ones who have the most complicated relationship with it. Play the game enough, and even if you love it, part of you will probably start to hate it. Generally speaking: CS:GO players love to hunt some chickens,and are flummoxed by the knives, are in agreement that Dust2 is in some ways the game's only map, and hate hackers almost as much as they hate being called hackers. And of course, like any good game, for all the complaints most people have, they still can't stop playing.

The Bomb has been Planted

If you think back to the old times, the 1.6 times, it was hard to believe another Counter Strike could ever take its crown. And many tried, but failed. But Valve finally did it with Global Offensive, not only making it take the spotlight but making it bigger than 1.6 ever was. It's now a phenomenon, being broadcast even on TV. The developers are always updating the game, sometimes for the good and sometimes not so much, but it keeps you waiting for the next update and everything stays fresh. CS GO is now balanced between being a skill based game and a run and gun game, again sometimes for the good and sometimes for the bad. It still is, however, the most strategically deep game of this generation, so if you're looking for a skill based game that requires you not just hitting your shots but also countering your enemies strategy, then look no further because CS GO is for you!
