Professional Review

If you are not afraid of the pictures of intense violence and blood, as the developer defines it, then download Counter-Strike. This is an objective-based first-person shooter available for multiple players.

Graphics: 3

Perhaps, you know this franchise with several releases. Unfortunately, graphics of each one rank below the new standard. There is no significant improvement compared to the previous games and even being compared to other CoD games, it cannot be specified as the best one as to graphics. The design is rather poor; the colors are not bright. Still, you can enjoy clean images, smooth framerates, and Old School approach.

Gameplay: 5

A full release of this game appeared in 2013. Here you have two opposing teams which compete in accordance with rules and in various modes. Terrorists and Counter-Terrorists have their own objectives which should be completed. The do-gooders protect a location, defuse a bomb, rescue hostages. The game consists of rounds. When it is over, a player gets rewards which he deserves in the form of in-game currency. The prize can be spent on the weapons needed for the next battles. Some actions can lead to more money and the others, like the killing of a teammate, results in a penalty.

From the very first, you are expected to decide what group you are going to join: terrorists or a counter-terrorist team. There is a choice of character types and equipment available before the mission starts. Most players prefer to stop terrorists’ plan and protect the country and base from evil. There are two ways to get bonuses: achieving goals or killing opponents.

Controls: 1

The characters in the game can move forward, back, slowly and fast. They can jump and crouch, turn left and right, give primary and secondary fire. Usage of guns and weapons is not difficult but requires mastering in practice. There are plenty of various types of shots, which definitely should be tried. If you activate your killer mode, you can fight for real victory, and the battlefield operations will help you to gain needed land combat experience.

Replay Value: 5

When you start on with this game, you can count on endless battles which become less difficult in the course of time because you become well-trained combat. The purpose of saving the world provides with plenty of variants. You will complete the task applying various approaches. Thus, we would say that this is a classic of the genre with all its advantages. So, you will enjoy replaying.


Reading the Counter-Strike review, you understand that this is one of the time proved and popular games developed for lovers of shooting and action! It was released in 2012 and till now is played with pleasure and even on a professional level with arrangements of specialized tournaments.
