It started off as a common multiplayer Half-Life mod but now is one of the most played online action game in the world. Whether it is Counter-Strike 1.6 or Counter-Strike: Source, nearly every gamer has dipped into the pure shooting thrill that IS CS.
Here is the comparison of of all cs games on the classic de_dust2 map.
So what’s new?! The most obvious change in CS:GO is the graphics most definitely. The lighting is lovely, the textures are crisp, the shadows are softer, and the sounds are brilliant! You can certainly tell the difference from 8 years ago at least from a graphical view. Mostly all the graphics from CS:S have been renovated and refined to present a game that’s far easier on the eyes. (Its ok to admit it CS:S was starting to show its age). In terms it isn’t on Battlefield 3 or Crysis engine level but it doesn’t have to. The dedicated CS fans will be more than glad with the new paint job their favorite game has received.
Smoke effects in CS:GO look better than ever!
Official support for more game modes in CS:GO this will make joining games a breeze. Arms race which you all may know as ‘gun-game’ has players grind their way up ranks of guns as they get kills. Classic lets players to recreate the old Counter-Strike gameplay that they’ve adapted to playing with. You now start with armor rather than buying it at the start of a round. The radar in CS:GO has been re-worked it shows information much more noticeably than the one found in CS:S. A different (and greatly valued) feature of the interface in CS:GO is at the top of the UI on the scoreboard. The new in-game interface is more sleek and minimalistic than ever providing focus on gameplay rather than health or ammo information.
The Negev, the new gun in CS:GO and is the precise definition of a “spray-and-pray” gun.
Although trying to stick to the old classic gameplay sprinting is not possible, even some weapons without scopes are still able to scope or zoom in, and 'ladder-climbing' animations remain still inadvertently amusing. Gameplay in CS:GO feels pretty much the same to CS:S’s gameplay, which does not make it a bad game seeing how successful Counter-Strike is even to this day. The basic element shooter has been Counter-Strike’s asset for over a decade, it seems it will persist the same way in CS:GO. Are you getting this game??
