A Careful Refinement of the Quintessential FPS

Summary: Over the past few years, a general trend has emerged from the shooter genre: brief single-player campaigns laden with scripted-events, coupled with a multiplayer mode so accessible that even the weakest teammate can feel empowered.
Summary: Counter Strike, or CS, has been in my life for a long time and seeing a new addition made me slightly skeptical. But fear not, Valve never lets us down when it comes to developing great and amazing games.
Summary: (This is for the PC version) I've been playing it for a while and it's amazing, graphics are good, gameplay is awesome, and overall just fun to play when you got nothing to do. Now the downside about CS:GO is that there is less modding, when you install mods/skins I have to re-install the game.
Summary: PC VERSION Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO) is pretty much the same as Counter Strike: Source in all the obvious ways stated in the GI review above ; no instant respawns... etc, But this is an extremely good thing.
Summary: First off lol at the guy trying to compare this with a COD game. Great throw back to the day. Game is just as fun as was back then. This is such a great team game. It doesn't play well with a bunch of random players so if you don't have a few friends to team up with try just playing bots.
Summary: What can I say? Counter Strike: Global Offensive is just straight up FUN and definitely worth the fifteen dollars. It's a breath of fresh air from all the hardcore serious shooters like Call of Duty and Battlefield that we have nowadays, and it plays great on the Xbox 360.
Summary: What can I say? It's the same game, with better graphics. Though they seemed to get rid of some of the physics, like shooting around barrels. Xbox360 version runs consistently smooth, no spikes in FPS and rubberbanding.
Summary: Game is definitely worth it. It's fast-paced, tense, and very satisfying -- Sounds like my night Figi! Rohoho! But seriously, this game rocks. It's a strictly online competitive multiplayer shooter but you can still play offline with bots if you so desire and if there aren't enough online players in...
Summary: This game is fun over XBOX Live. If you're the type of person who likes to play online with buddies, this one will be a hit for you I think. Great graphics and sound. Great team-based game play. Longtime fans of Counterstrike will be very pleased. If you're a strictly solo gamer, this isn't for you.
