Counter-Strike has always been a very addictive game, and CS:GO follows its predecessors in that aspect. The Counter-Strike games are always known for its steep learning curve, and it takes alot of practice to be good in this game. This game is an online multiplayer game that is very competitive compared to other shooters. CS:GO offers a couple of game types and modes that can ease Gamers into the game. The modes that are friendly for newcommers and people that want to polish their skills and get familiar with guns are; Arms race, and the newly added team deathmatch. The game mode "Arms Race" is a lot like the game type called "Gun Game". In this deathmatch mode all players start with the same gun, but once you score a kill player gets a new gun to try out. Then rinse and repeat this mode is really good for getting players to get familirized with the guns, the feel of them, and how to use them properly. Then team deathmatch is like your standard team deathmatch mode in other FPS games

Many classic maps in other Counter-Strike games are back in this game and they are revamped with HD visuals. The classic maps that are back in this game are Aztec (defuse), Dust (defuse), Dust 2 (defuse), Inferno (defuse), Train (defuse), Italy (Rescue), and Office (rescue). Valve also created 8 new maps for this game, and every map is enjoyable. The maps that I feel the community love the most is Dust and Dust 2. These two maps are classic maps, that are probably the most played maps in any multiplayer game ever created. Such a classic map that must be played daily, this map is the definition that simplicity can easily translate to many mediums.

This game is very similar on Xbox 360 and PS3 only difference is it doesn't have a community like their PC big brother. For the console version of this game I give the edge to the PS3 because you can hook up a mouse and keyboard to play it. That is very crucial in Counter-Strike because this game prides itself on precision Using a controller for this game doesn't provide players with the precision they need to be successful in this game, I feel that it hinders the player's experience in the game. Xbox 360 doesn't allow users to hook up a mouse and keyboard so I advise console gamers to get this game on the PS3 if they have a choice. Also another important thing about CS:GO on the Xbox 360 the game blocks party chat because they want to maintain the integrity of the game. Also by blocking party chat this game forces other players on the Xbox 360 to communicate with each other, which is very important in this skilled based shooter.
Counter-Strike go is the most accessible Counter-Strike game for players to play. I feel that they made the game more user friendly, which translated to a well polish game that can be played by the pros and newcomers to the series. With revamped HD visual this is easily the best looking Counter-Strike game. Even though the graphics for this game doesn't compare to other FPS multiplayer game I still think the game looks good, but not amazing. I do feel that its refreshing to see a good looking Counter-Strike game. Lastly, if the Counter-Strike formula isn't broken don't fix it. This game shows that this barebones shooter that doesn't have many bells and whistles still offers one of the best multiplayer experiences in video games in general
