This was broadcast live a few hours ago and is repeating. They are old pro CS 1.6 players playing CS:GO at the Intel Extreme Masters.

This is the first gameplay video that has ever been shown.

I'm not really impressed. CS:Source looks better. There will be two game modes. Casual and Competitive mode. Casual will allow you to buy anything at the start that you want. Competitive means you have to buy weapons as before and the matchmaker will place you with people in the same ranking as you.

So, I'm a little surprised that there isn't an active thread on this game. Had to go dig one up...

I bought it on a whim...it's only $15. I played a lot of CS back in the day (but never Source), so there is a lot of great nostalgia. It's nice to jump back into the same maps, and instantly know the strategy.

I find the game is really smooth. I get a great FPS, and it really feels like when I die, it was my own damn fault, and not just some random bullet spray. That's really important to get right.

Only complaint is that the map selection is a little poor right now. I've only played on official servers, so I'm sure there are lots of custom maps making the rounds. But for the official maps, currently there are : Aztec, Dust, Dust2, Inferno, Italy, Nuke, Office, Train. It would be nice to get more of the classics back.

There are two other modes: Arms Race and Demolition. Arms Race is a lot of fun. Every kill, your weapon is swapped out for the next in sequence. First one to get a kill with every weapon wins. Unfortunately, there are only 2 official maps for this mode. Demolition has a set sequence of guns with the same idea: every kill, you progress to the next gun. But this also has a bomb target objective, so it is very much a team game, but with this gun progression. I found it a little weird.

I played hours and hours of CS back in the day. I've got a weekend mostly to myself this weekend, so I think I'll pick it up and try it out. Thanks for the review, gottabekd.

Meh, if you have questions about your gaming power, I would stay away from any newer games.

I should mention that I was playing this on PC. There is a PS3 and Xbox 360 version, but playing CS on console would just be weird. As well, there is support for a mouse and keyboard on PS3. I would hate to be the guy with a controller in those games.

Really, there isn't anything new or too exciting here. It is just an updated version of Counter-Strike. But it is the one of the most played online games every, so that's probably a good thing.

One thing I'll mention is there are two 'Classic' modes: Casual and Competitive.

Casual means everyone gets armour every round (no buying armour), you always get full ammo for your purchased gun, FF off, team collision off.

Competitive would be more close the classic. You must purchase armour and ammo, friendly fire is on, team collision is on.

I have been playing this a ton lately. Pretty funny to see a new generation of players, raised on COD, come into this game.

Seriously, I haven't played in years, and came back with a 15 - 3 record in my first round. Lot's of terrible players trying it for the first time.

Tons of fun to get back into though.

Used to play CS back in the day, too, before it went commercial, so I gave the demo a shot on the XBox 360.

Unfortunately, playing with a controller really really sucked. Beyond that, it has a good flow to it. I would hope it gets a lot more maps to work with, though, and I'll consider getting it the next time I grab some MS points.

It really bugs the snot out of me that PS3 owners get a keyboard/mouse to use. Microsoft recently introduced IE in the XBox console, maybe finally we'll get a keyboard and mouse too.

MS already has a platform that uses keyboard and mouse.

I didn't start playing CS in any capacity until I was about 28 years old. I used to think it was a dumbass video game played by nerds when I was in highschool.

Now when I play and those same nerds are pwning me, I regret my bad decisions from the past.
