Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Review
13 October 2012
Excerpt: It's hard for me to write about Counter-Strike because, well, Counter-Strike made me; the underpass of Dust is my Hyrule Field, Golden Saucer or Shadow Moses, and as a 14-year-old kid in a clan with big dreams and middling skill the rest of my team became role models.
Excerpt: In a world full of competitive shooters, Counter-Strike always stands out. Games like Call of Duty and Medal of Honor may pride themselves on their online games, but Valve's super competitive shooter thrives on it.
Conclusion: I share my one gripe with quite a lot of other CS players. Shooters, including the original and Source versions of Counter-Strike , rely on visual cues to enhance the experience, a key element of which is how the players’ bodies respond to bullet impacts. CS:GO lacks in this department.
Conclusion: Some would conclude and suggest CS: GO hasn’t changed so why bother. This is flawed – GO is perhaps the most exciting game in the series. It’s culled the crap, brought new content and tactics to a near-perfect series, and focused on community. It’s got an extremely bright future ahead of itself.
Conclusion: The traditional CS modes are excellently balanced. Games are fast-paced without being unmanageable, skill is rewarded in both the planning and outfitting stages as well as in battle, and good teamwork typically beats individual skills.
Pros: The intense, skill-based combat of Counter-Strike is as enthralling as ever, Low price, New modes put a clever spin on classic Counter-Strike., The intense, skill-based combat of Counter-Strike is as enthralling as ever, Low price, New modes put a clever spin on classic Counter-Strike.
Summary: More update than honest-to-goodness sequel, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive maintains much of what made the original Counter-Strike (and Counter-Strike: Source) so fantastic, while adding a couple of new game modes, both of which were based on user-made mods to the original game.
