    Lack of both new content and really precise controls prevents the otherwise good console version of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive to live up to its PC counterpart.

    As an online game my apprehension is that if friends can't play together without hassle then soon they won't bother.

    First off lol at the guy trying to compare this with a COD game. Great throw back to the day. Game is just as fun as was back then. This isFirst off lol at the guy trying to compare this with a COD game. Great throw back to the day. Game is just as fun as was back then. This is such a great team game. It doesn't play well with a bunch of random players so if you don't have a few friends to team up with try just playing bots. Fully customizable controls is what every game should have. Well worth $15 Full Review »

    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 puttingJust 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, 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. Full Review »

    What can I say? It's the same game, with better graphics. Though they seemed to get rid of some of the physics, like shooting around barrels.What can I say?

Xbox360 version runs consistently smooth, no spikes in FPS and rubberbanding. Full Review »
