Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

2 September 2013
  • Summary: In 1999, I crawled out of Counter-Strike ’s wretched vagina to become the man I am today. And, now, I’m tasked with rating the game. How does one even rate his mother? In sixth grade, I would wake up for school at 5:30 AM, but then I started getting up at 4:30 just to get a couple rounds in before...

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Review

17 August 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 my role models.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

27 August 2012
  • Conclusion: The importance of the original Counter-Strike cannot be overstated. It was one of the first online shooters, with sort of a realistic feel to it, and in a way almost every modern shooter owes something to CS. It was also the first game to prove the potential of the mod scene.
  • Pros: + Solid, classic gameplay. + Nice technical update. + True to the original. + Increased accessibility.
  • Cons: - Too conservative. - Most new features add very little. - Graphics could have been better.

Expert Review

21 September 2012
  • Conclusion: Für den Test habe ich extra nachgeschaut: 189 Stunden habe ich in Counter-Strike: Source verbracht, aber seit einem Jahr bestimmt nicht mehr reingeschaut. Der Reiz war einfach weg, irgendwann wünscht man sich ein bisschen Abwechslung.
  • Pros: + Global Offensive ist zeitlos wie seine Vorgänger, + gutes Matchmaking-System…, + alte Karten wurden übernommen und angepasst…, + Molotov-Granate sinnvolle Erweiterung im Waffenarsenal, + Gungame nun als Feature im Spiel
  • Cons: - Technik hängt hinterher, - …, das leider noch nicht ganz ausgereift ist, - …, bisher gibt es aber zu wenige offizielle Karten, - Ködergranate ist praktisch überflüssig

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (Xbox Live Arcade)

11 September 2012
  • Conclusion: "Counter-Strike: Global Offensive" ist sicherlich kein Spiel für jedermann: Wer Action der Taktik vorzieht, wird bei der Konkurrenz glücklicher. Es will eben nicht jeder stundenlang üben, nur um dann mal einen einsamen Sieg zu erringen.
