    The game is awesome on the pc, just a repaint, but still nice to play.
    On the console how ever, it S**KS, it really did, its not working for most people, there are much glitches, and allot of very laggie servers or p2p, its not meant for console ,thats all i want to say about it

    i give it a 6 out of 10, for the awefull console version.

    Great FPS on PC. Console... is still good despite the drawbacks. If you have a keyboard and you have the PS3 version (and you're like me, with a crappy computer that can't run this on PC), play with that, because you will have much more control options, and a better experience. Using the controller will take time to adapt to for CS vets, and Playstation Move... Well that's another story.Great FPS on PC. Console... is still good despite the drawbacks.

The maps are restricted to certain game modes and unlike the PC version, you cannot cater the game to your liking and have 9v9 matches. Console players are limited only to 5v5's which can feel limited. But for those that are like me, this does a decent fix for CS players new and slightly good. Expand

    I'll be honest. I am a CS fanboy. I will never regret the hundreds of hours I spent playing 1.5 and 1.6 on PC. Unfortunately the game is just not the same when played on console.

    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.
