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

Total Xbox
27 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Counter-Strike ’s over a decade old, yet gunmen continue to kidnap hostages and plant explosives on PCs around the world. And for good reason: it's a well-honed balance of trigger-happy action and rewarding tactical teamwork. However, Global Offensive 's simplistic core betrays its age.
  • Pros: + Aged but winning core of demanding and dynamic team-focused tactics., + Exciting and fast-paced Arms Race and Demolition modes rejuvenate interest, even if underwhelming visual upgrades don't.
  • Cons: ? Why do so few players seem to possess headsets?

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?

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

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

  • Excerpt: Counter-Strike ne meurt jamais ! Depuis la fin des années 90, cet ancien mod de Half-Life a particulièrement bien évolué, jusqu'à devenir une des licences les plus jouées en ligne. Rien que ça. Mais tout palmarès mis à part, Global Offensive est-il le digne successeur de la série ?

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive review

Power Unlimited
25 September 2012
  • Summary: Valve heeft een overtuigende, solide game neergezet die de old skool fan zeker zal bekoren. Nieuwelingen die door durven bijten, zullen zich gegrepen voelen door de CS-magie. Het is nostalgisch, eigenwijs en pittig, maar verdomde rewarding! En dat voor 13,99 euro!!!
