Should you buy it? No.
Should you buy it for nostalgia of a "better more simple time of FPSs"? No.
Go buy Battlefield 3, you will enjoy it more. Yes, I'm serious.
Why? Server lag. Horrible aiming. Horrible weapon choices.
So Counter Strike is back, after many years of being AWOL, and brings NOTHING to the table.
I had hoped I would be writing this and proclaiming a rekindled love for the CS world. Well shit. Guess I was wrong.
The game on XBox Live during multiplayer lagged and dropped out more than those "cool kids" in every 80s movie that had a high school focus. The bots, yes it has bots to fill vacant team spots, make me WANT to play vs a whole team of campers in MW3.
This is the same issue I had with Duke Nukem 3D, IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE GOOD. In reality, it was a flop. It was a giant belly flop from an Olympic diving board.
Did the game have any redeeming features? No. Nothing about this game will make it even remotely able to keep up with the "big boys". Those being Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3.
I feel like I was just mugged for my shiny new sneakers by a ninety year old man with a limp in a golf cart. All while being handcuffed with a gimp gag in my mouth.
I feel dirty. I think I need a shower.
