First Impression:

My first impression made my Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was that, this game is REALLY hard.  I wasn’t able to play much, as it is a one-life-per-round sort of FPS.  It is a tad bit more strategically demanding than the original Counter-Strike and Counter-Strike: Source, but once you start to melt into the games controls and environment, you start to feel how the game moves.

Although, there are different gameplay options for more seasoned players. For example; the casual game-mode is a 1-life, best of 15 match that consists of up to a 10v10, but if there are less than 10 players total, bots will be added to increase fair gameplay.  There are also death-match and a arms-race variants of game-types that consists of buying any weapon you want, or earning weapons by kills.  For more seasoned players, the competitive gameplay is allowed.

This consists of a 5v5 match that only has bots when a play leaves/gets kicked from a match.  It is a best of 30 game-type, which makes the game longer, and ever-more tiring.  It is like casual, but unlike death-match and arms race, a 1-life game-type that consists of true strategy, incredible teamwork, and a gigantic amount of trust for yourself and your teammates.

While this game-type is usually more fun with friends, you will be put into a new kind of ranking system that you start to lose your mind on because it is really,really hard.  Steam also integrated a unique trading scenario where you earn ‘weapon skins’ for your in game items, which can have quite a retail value. Overall, if you have recently just started FPS games, this one may not be for you, but if you’ve played your fair-share, it might be just the game your looking for.
