    Coming from PC this is a big disappointment. The lack of support for the game alone is enough to not buy this game. Nothing new to see here. If anything thing this is a much worse version than PC. Aim assist doesn't belong in CS. I honestly would not recommend this game to anyone who is looking for a competitive round based game thinking they can do clan matches. Matchmaking is a joke,Coming from PC this is a big disappointment. The lack of support for the game alone is enough to not buy this game. Nothing new to see here.

Matchmaking is a joke, your just thrown into a game that's half-way over, even if you have a group together. Expand

    Just got done playing the console version of GO, and all I can say is that is TERRIBLE! Why did you have to ruin such a great game by putting it on consoles? No one helps out, everyone who actually tries to play the game gets called a **** or a hacker, and the worst of all, The graphics suck ass and you can only have 5v5 matches! WTF!!!! Do yourself a favor and ONLY get the PC version, theJust got done playing the console version of GO, and all I can say is that is TERRIBLE!

Do yourself a favor and ONLY get the PC version, the only platform CS is, and only has been good on. Do not waste your $15 on the craptacular 360/PS3 version. You will regret it. Expand

    Fortunately, the design is still fun, even if it doesn't quite hold up against modern FPS fare. [Dec 2012, p.86]

    Global Offensive is pure Counter-Strike. Hidden Path have made an inoffensive compromise between the best parts of the old versions. Whether it'll be the definitive thing is yet to be seen. However, it's an all-around decent FPS and is likely the most necessary one on PSN.
