    This game simply doesn't reach my expectation.

    The game is a bit better than css, but still nowhere near CS1.6. Great graphic improvements:texture, models, shadows, etc...But then there's a "little" problem.It makes the Ts and Cts look alike, and i usually mistook ... Read Full Review

    Better then expected!

    I came into this game with very little expectation for its success, after playing years of CS from the days of 1.3 up until its final release of 1.6 at a competitive level. Its hard to convince someone like me that Coun... Read Full Review

    Counter Strike has returned once again!

    It still blows my mind that one of the greatest FPS games of all time (no not CoD) was created as a mod of Half-Life it shows how the birth of military shooters that would soon follow. Playing CS it never bothered me not... Read Full Review

    The best fps-game.

    In the Counter-Strike-series you (normally) play rounds and if you get fragged you have to wait until next round, which can take minutes. This differs from many other fps-games where you re-spawn after a couple of second... Read Full Review

    Counter strike is back to his own deserved place

    Good matchmaking; good graphics; but $15 might be too cheap to deter people from hacking, getting banned, and re-buying.

    As an avid cs player (I've played CS since 1.5- which includes 1.5, 1.6, CZ, Source, and also the original xbox version I have to say this is a great "update" to the game. Basically, take any cs game, add new visuals and... Read Full Review

    One of my all-time favorite online FPS comes back to consoles.

    Playing this new 'Counter-Strike' reminds me of my days on my PC, playing version 1.6 for more hours than I would like to admit. It still brings me joy, endless anger, and frustration at the same time. It still pains me ... Read Full Review

    If you're considering buying Global Offensive via XBLA, I'd really save your money... for now.

    Highly Addictive! Really!

    Counter Strike: Global Offensive is Highly Addictive, so i advice to all 8-10 years of age to stay out of this game. So now for the review. CS:GO is an online first-person shooter developed by Valve Corporation and Hidde... Read Full Review
