Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

True achievements
25 March 2013
  • Conclusion: CSGO does little to seperate itself from the other shooters available on the marketplace. Nothing was done to make this game above average in any respect. The feel and rhythm that the Counter Strike franchise has presumably mastered on the PC is GO's only bright spot.

Counter Strike: Global Offensive Review

Hardcore Shooter
6 November 2012
  • Conclusion: The Counter-Strike series started as a popular mod for the original Half-Life in 2003. It has since swelled into a massive franchise, with a half-dozen games across multiple platforms and tens of millions of copies sold.
  • Pros: Cheap, at $15, Fun new gametypes, Same fast-paced shooter gameplay
  • Cons: Lightweight on the shipped maps, Visuals are updated, but the Source engine is getting rusty, With all of the innovation in shooters the last few years, the old formula isn’t really turning heads any more, even for a grandaddy like Counter-Strike

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive – Review (Xbox 360)

Gametactics
3 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Some may squabble over some minor changes here or there but whether you started from the initial release or jumped in somewhere thereafter, the core gameplay still holds up surprisingly well. The crisp, clean graphics lend themselves well to the multiplayer setting.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Review

19 September 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.

  • Excerpt: The core elements of the Counter-Strike series haven’t changed much since the original Half-Life mod emerged in 1999. That trend continues with the newest update, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, for better and worse.
  • Pros: The improved visuals, Arms Race mode, Traditional shooter mechanics of CS are intact
  • Cons: Same old maps, No attempt at bringing the series forward, The steep learning curve for newcomers

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Review

G4
24 August 2012
  • Summary: Counter-Strike set the bar high for the FPS titles that followed it, but is this new version enough to go toe to toe with the new kings of the genre? Find out what's old, what's new, and if Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is worth picking up in our review.
  • Pros: Great improvement in graphics, Weapons course is surprisingly fun, New modes are highly enjoyable
  • Cons: Where's the new stuff?, Still no ironsights, How long until the new rating system kicks in?

OXM 360
24 August 2012
  • Summary: Counter-Strike always was - and still remains - a PC game. Despite being recognisable and very playable on 360, it feels alien even with a number of changes to the 12 year old formula, designed to make the brutal, unforgiving combat more console friendly.
  • Pros: Superbly balanced maps and action, Everyone has access to all guns, Simple to understand
  • Cons: Takes months to master, Looks and feels old
