Game: Counter Strike : Global Offensive  Reviewer: Isaac

First off, I must preface this review by saying I’m extremely biased to love this game. It is by far my favorite game and has been for the past two years. Counter Strike : Global Offensive is the FPS that everyone dreams about. It’s balanced, it’s fun, it’s (to an extent) realistic, it has a ranking system for divvying up the good from the bad, and overall is the shooter game that all other shooters should  model themselves off. Most games are played in a “casual” 10 vs 10 setting where the objective of the opposing sides is different. The Terrorists or “T’s,” must plant the bomb at either of the two objective sites, and keep the Counter-Terrorists  or “CT’s,” from defusing it. If the Terrorists kill all of the Counter-Terrorists in the two-minute rounds, they score a point. If the Counter-Terrorists kill all of the Terrorists before the bomb is planted, defuse the bomb, or wait out the two-minutes without the bomb being planted then they score a point. In casual mode, this normally doesn't end that way, as either side normally wipes out the other before the bomb even touches the ground. I started this game in casual, and played enough games and gathered enough XP to move into competitive mode. Competitive is much more rigorous and harder to play, but the ranking system is in place so players can see where they’re matched up.

With a multitude of weapons to buy, Counter Strike : Global Offensive gives way to many different play styles, from using sniper rifles, to up close shotguns, to medium range rifling. I am a prominent sniper, using the AWP for a majority of my kills. There is an economy in game, where money is awarded for planting and defusing the bomb, killing enemies, and a win/loss bonus is given to each side depending if they won the round or not. I love playing competitive because I’m constantly matched with people of my skill level, but I still crush anyways. The graphics of the game are constantly being updated, in fact a recent patch has updated the look of the gloves holding the weapons! If that’s not attention to detail, then I don’t know what is. Each round is set in a “Search and Destroy” setting, and once you die in the round, you’re out for the rest of the round, and will respawn with your knife and pistol at the beginning of next round. The game features a variety of maps to play on, ranging from a cruise ship, to a train yard, to a complex in the middle of the desert.




This game is extremely balanced because each weapon has a specific damage, but being shot in different parts of the body does different damage. If shot in the head with an AWP, I take around 400 damage (it only takes 100 to kill.) If shot in the chest or stomach, I take just above 100 damage, still lethal, and if shot in the extremities, I take 85 damage. When shot, the character's movement speed slows dramatically so this really puts the “fight or flight” experience into fruition, you can either turn towards the attacker and hope to gun them down, or try and hide behind cover and wait for your inevitable demise. Each gun has it’s own pros and cons, ranging from extreme recoil and high pricing, to deadly accuracy and cost-effectiveness. The community for this game is also amazing, with a plethora of guides and videos out there to see, I definitely recommend picking up this game, for only $15, it’s definitely worth the buy.
