Looks horrible. Nothing like advertising a big new game for 2012 and the game looks like it was created back in 2002. Way to go. Not.
Holy shit, I love the idea but the only thing that worries me is if I have to play with PC gamers, I've seen those dudes play with fanaticism...please let there be a filter for us console players.
Got a question.in the earlier CS games there was no iron sight (infact the only weapons which had scopes were snipers). So is this concept introduced in this game.
Cross platform? I was gonna buy this game in like 5minutes on xbox arcade.. But I am not gonna play cs on my xbox vs pc players if this is what it means... like wtf? Who would in their right minds want to do that!!! :(
cross platforming + matchmaking = RIP CS, you was a good.game,excellent online shooter,i'm gonna miss you,buddy.
I just pre-ordered Counter Strike: GO ! Can't wait to play the hell out of this game. Hopefully I can use the mouse on this as I have heard you can!
nice!bringing back the memories when i was on my elementary days and high-school days :) :) i'm so happy seeing the CS like this.....w/o CS no COD, BF or any other FPS.. :D :D coz the CS is the 1st FPS that i play and i think this the FATHER of the FPS.... :) :) btw, can't wait for this game :D : D
I used to be one of those people who cared about realism above all else. However, for multiplayer games, it has become more and more apparent over the last 10 years that are a few factors are much more important for an enjoyable multiplayer experience and the biggest of these factors is balance. If you make the weapons, movement speed, amount of health, and map design in a way that no matter what class of guns you choose, or which spawn you get, you still have a fair chance of beating the opposition, then the game will be fun. You can make the argument that BF3 is more realistic than BF2- but I would strongly disagree with you if you said it was better balanced and consequently more fun. So while the aiming in CS isn't 'realistic' and the indestructible environments aren't 'realistic' and the inability to sprint isn't 'realistic', it is better balanced and, imo, much more fun to play than many current MP shooters.
this game lol .. brings back memories ..
idk about this new game (stopped playing since 1.4 ish) but this game, especially the original, deserves all respect for being what it is, and is not meant to be compared to the high-graphics-cinematic-realism-futuristic games we have nowadays like bf3/cod/ghost recon.
I hate CS and its crap effects and huge arcade crappy gameplay... GOSH!
Most of the CS players don't like realistic games, then they get crazy when they play a true game and can't hit anything with the sniper and they say WTF why does the bullet goes lot lower than where I was aiming? (The answer is probably they play too much CS).
They really need to play something like Sniper elite, BF3, BF2, America's Army 2 PC only....., COD2, COD4, and so many other good games out there!
@Ares360 dont worry then cross platform was only for PS3 and the took it out at the last sec, the knew it was bad for console player.
@gamefreak215jd nope no iron sights i doubt you will ever see iron sights in any CS game
@Skakruk no cross platform in CS , it got canned at the last sec
@Skakruk just because there is matchmaking and cross platform play doesn't mean you have to do either there are still community servers so come down off your high horse and get your sweet murder on
@mykel100 Jeez, man. You sound like you never graduated from High School. Anyway, the problem with this is that other franchises have built upon and improved upon the original. If the folks at Steam haven't done their homework, this will be like any other current fps. However, knowing the Steam people, they likely worked their asses off to get this working smooth as glass. We'll see....
@moc5 CS always the BEST?? for you then. CS is the most kiddy crap game I could have ever play...
Back then Unreal tournament and Quake were the funniest games, not that dull piece of garbage CS...
What have always been the best is America's Army 2, now that is epic for a true real experience (taking lag issues out).
@tushwacker Well BF3 is very unbalanced, I wasen't talking about it....
But CS has a very BAD shitty arcade gameplay. Weapons have 10x more recoil than in real life, I hate a gun that is aiming position X and it doesn't hit shit at medium distances, have to stop and most even crouch. While in other games I'm always swaying around and killing a lot with a good fun gameplay like in the good old Unreal Tournaments, and fun games like that.
I also hate CS zoom in function (where's the damn scopes?). And snipers have hacks\cheats always on, they don't move and always hit exactly where you are aiming. And everyone I see in real life that play that crap CS, then go play any other game, they see the sniper scope always moving a lot and even more when someone is firing near you, they say WTF this is not realistic, what a bad game...
Yeah well they never had a gun in their entire life probably...
A true good realistic game is America's Army2.
And a FUN game is what I call to the good old quake's, Unreal Tournaments, Serious Sam, and so many other games.
ps: For last, on CS is so awesome having to wait like 15min to enter in every god damn server, where is full of chicken sounds, stupid cows sounds and lots of other craps like if that's fun. Then there's always this stupid x kid saying blahblahblah in the mic, other playing music trough the mic.... VERY NICE!
@tushwacker Finally...a well argued statement from someone of taste!
@skeleme No cod looks a bit to Counter strike-ish.
many of the mechanics used in CoD were pioneered in CS considering it came out in 2000 (correct me if im wrong)
will i love cod and bf so i,m not against any of the two i,m with crysis 3 and assasin,s creed 3
@guily6669 Sniper Elite????? BORING!!!!!!
@guily6669 You make me yearn for the days of the thumbs down button on GS... damn I miss choice. This forced positivity is BS.
in cs if you die during a game, you have to wait till the end of the round where either your entire team or your opponents team is eliminated. I feel this adds realism in a whole other way
@DanBoiani hahaha..i graduated in HS in the year 2005.. :) ..and i'm now an Engineer...i graduated my Degree in the year 2010....but anyways, yeah we'll see about the game... :) :) :)
Not too many people on crysis 3 which is a shame cause it definitely tests your skills more than any other fps
@DanBoiani Yeah? The new sniper Elite is the best sniping game ever made...
Bones breaking, brains being cut, hearts exploding... Well a CS player will never like it since it's not CS where the snipers have no sway around and the crosshair like a million other games when using HACKS\CHEATS.
@Hell_Bourne Should try socom, tons of fun if you like that kind of play.
@Hell_Bourne What realism does that add? It's just Team Deathmatch, almost every game has that mod.
Even Combat Arms free game has that mod where u have to wait for players to die, but I prefer playing in continuous respawn mod on it!
Realism is America's Army 2.0, which is a very <<simulation game>> and you will have to wait like 5 minutes or more for your team to die so you can respawn...
@guily6669 Chill. You have issues. Up the meds.
Dude, Unreal Tournament and counterstrike are very similar. Given they do have their setting and gameplay differences, they are both first person shooters with incredibly alike overall experiences. But you think what you want buddy.
@moc5 Well 4 me every game based on SOURCE engines are all CRAP...
Specially a game that it's special forces and shooting while dodging will make lot's of rounds to be shot and none hit the actual target not much far away.
Well in real life, even with a single bullet in a bloody pistol I can hit you even running... And they are special forces...
I wonder where would we be if that kind of crap gameplay was in real life... People wasting tons of round and not hitting a single bullet 10 meters away in a little target....
Then CS players think CS is the real deal, then when they go play something realistic like America's Army, they can't play neither they will like... OMG the sniper is always moving... OMG when someone is firing at me the accuracy fails a lot....
If it was to play a game for fun, back then I would be playing Quake and Unreal Tournament, now that's a fun competition. CS is not either fun or realistic.
@guily6669 Well, you seem to be coming off just like those who you accuse. Either way, your entitled to your own opinion but not your own facts. The key feature to CS that kept people coming back to play it was the superior game play mechanics despite the badly aging graphics. There are always annoying people in any forum or online game :clears throat:. My recommendation to you would be to stay as far away from this game and all its forums as possible as you clearly hate the game. Glad we cleared that up.
@moc5 And u think I don't know that?
CS is for stupid KIDS... The most annoying irrealistic arcade game that tries to be a simulator...
There's only kids in it... Stupid kids that go to shcool kill people on real life because of that game.
There's only kids in every server saying non-sense on the mic.... There's a 15 min downloading delay in almost every server.
ps: Hate everything in it, specially the most played 1.6 Like if it's even a good looking game or FUN....
@guily6669 Counter Strike was very popular for a very, very long time for good reason. Based on your comparisons, I can see that you are uninformed. It's not a crime, but it is in fact wrong.
@moc5 then what's is wrong?
@PeachyCats Game simulators are mode for realism (like America's Army2)... Only arcade craps like CS are made not to be played for a realistic experience....
@PeachyCats ARMA has a DULL GAMEPLAY.
For me ARMA has a SHITTY gameplay. Bad weapon sounds, effects, dull physics...
BF3 gameplay on guns are a lot more realistic, and have more smooth physics, animation... MORE FLUID.
Realistic for me was America's Army 2 (Taking LAG issues out).
@guily6669 If you want realism play ARMA or any other sim, not BF or CoD. if you think those are an accurate representation of war than you are a hell of alot dumber than i thought.
@guily6669 I dont play games for a realistic experience. If i wanted a realistic representation of what war is like first than i would enlist.
