Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is the latest game in the Counter Strike family and this time it's also on the PS3, and Xbox 360.
|8||What began as a fan-made mod for the original Half-Life back in 1999, Counter-Strike swiftly blew up into one of the most popular competitive games in the First-Person Shooting genre. 2003's version 1.6 of the game is still to this day, 9 years later, consistently played with a healthy population. When Half-Life 2 was released in 2004 using its groundbreaking Source Engine, players were eagerly anticipating a Counter-Strike counterpart, and sure enough, CS: Source was released that same year. While technically impressive, fans still chose to cling to 1.6. Now we are in 2012, and Valve along with developers Hidden Path have released the latest installment in the franchise. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was released on PC, Mac OS X, PS3 and Xbox 360. The question is, in the midst of a plethora of shooters on the aforementioned platforms, is Counter-Strike still relevant? Will it cater to the hardcore veterans while still provide an easy integration for newcomers? The answer is yes. Yes it is, and yes it does. |
