What is Counter Strike Global Offensive like?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just wondering if anyone played the beta. How would you compare it to some of the newer games out there (CoD, BF3, BC2, etc.) in terms of graphics and gameplay?

CS shouldn't even be compared to the games you've mentioned. If you've never played a CS game, I suggest playing 1.6 and Source before hand.

That being said. CS isn't meant to be pretty, it's the mechanics and gameplay that make it what it is. It plays better than CoD, but doesn't look as pretty as BF3.

Coming from someone who has played CS since 1.5, it is a much easier game to get into. CS had a lot of emphasis on controlling recoil and spraying from a player perspective, but now it is much easier to get gun mechanics down; I'd definitely call it more casualized and the go-to game for someone who has never played CS before. The game is a lot slower paced than CoD and relies almost exclusively on knowing maps and on player skill. For example, it isn't all about who sees who first anymore when compared to the likes of CoD.

The game of course runs extremely smooth and the interface has been greatly improved via the latest update. For $13 or so, you cannot go wrong with the game if you like FPS games.

Ok, thanks. I'll probably try it out then. I used to really like playing the old Rainbow Six games which were more close quarters, don't know if it will compare to that. Back then, when you were dead, you were dead. You had to wait until the round was over to play again. It definitely changes the game dynamics.

Counter strike is the same thing, the game is played round by round, if you die you're dead til next round. One team typically has to plant the bomb.

The greatness of Counter strike besides great mechanics and competitive gameplay is the its on the source engine, a engine that can be modded to the death with skins, sounds, new game modes, animations, and maps. Ever heard of gun game in cod or gun master in bf3? Was a mod for counter strike first over 5-7 years ago!
