Wow, no shit, the game isn't coming out for like 6-8 months.

LoVeRSaMa2640d ago

True, its likely its going to turn out like 'Condition Zero' it had texture updates and was basically the same game like a 20% improvement in graphics and animations BUT..

People who play CS like to be good at it, and people wont switch to this unless its a big upgrade.

Hitboxes changes, animation changes wont be liked unless its using a totally different engine, lets divide the Counter Strike Community even more, its already split into 1.6 and CSS :P

Lazy_Sunday2640d ago (Edited 2640d ago )

6-8 months may seem like a lot of time, but sadly, it isn't. They need to completely redo models to make them look more up to date, and they need shaders for field of view and blur. I'd like to see a large amount of new content, but that could take up to a year. It's not like it'll drop the framerate, my Macbook Air runs Counterstrike at a considerable 120+FPS constant, and 60FPS goes for MW2. This game just looks like a polished last gen game, and that can change and still look and feel like the same unforgiving CS we all know and love.

What's worse is that CoD actually looks better than this. I know it's rehash of old mechanics brought into the new, but for an online only game, especially a rehashed Counterstrike, I expected more. This just feels like a money grab, they could seriously do better with this.


Not bad looking, has potential

ATi_Elite2640d ago


This is not Counter Strike 2.....but merely cleaning up some mechanics and visuals of CS:S to make CS:GO more Pro Gamer league friendly which should of been done years ago.

Just think of it as an expansion pak!!

thematrix12982640d ago

CS:S has way better graphic then this IMO.

Ravenor2640d ago


The weapon models....MAYBE, everything else looks better then Source.

Remember the single skin that the T's and CT's launched with on CS Source? They were awful and replaced eventually with the 4 skins per side which did look better.

It's also important to note that this game is something Valve probably wants to be able to run on a wide assortment of machines.

looks fun for a downloadable game. Will cater for the hardcore and counter strike fans. Oh graphics aint everything...

Genghis2640d ago

dunno if i can go back to no iron sights...

Ravenor2640d ago

Yeah it's really hard without that snap to ADS stuff eh?

If Iron sights are really whats holding you back from enjoying Counter Strike, you were never going to like Counter Strike.

Genghis2640d ago

i liked cs when i played it 11 years ago. there have been some games released since then. stop trying to wax nostalgic by praising classic stuff that has obviously been improved upon in since 1999. you're essentially a poser hipster for video games lol

snipes1012639d ago

I agree genghis I love ads.

@ravenor...listen don't be a jerk. The addition of ADS does not in any way shape or form suggest there would be auto aim. Battlefield has had ads for quit some time and there is no auto aim or snap to of any kind there.

I used to play counter strike and liked it, but I love the look/feel of ads, which will probably get me crucified here but whatever, it's what I think.

thePatriot2640d ago

gameplay looks good to me. I would buy it as it is right now. dont really care about the graphics if thats what you all are bitching about

haqshot2639d ago

If your first and apparently primary concern is the game's graphics, CS is not for you. CS is for those who enjoy a game where skill and teamwork trump all else. In fact, any and all comparisons to recent CoD games are completely undeserving. Comparing a skill-based shooter like CS to a game that arms its 12-year-olds with "tactical" nukes, carpet bombs dropped from a f*&%ing jet fighter, personal missiles, and a pack of roaming wild dogs is laughable. Unfortunately, "modern" fps is also synonymous with "easy" fps. Oh, did I mention default radar? Yes, it's reached that point where fps players are such noobs that they need to know exactly where on the map the enemey is at ALL times.

ofx3602639d ago

I hope you know there are modes without Perks, Airstrikes, and such. Just an FYI for the everyday Cod hater.

Forbidden_Darkness2640d ago

It's the gameplay that makes Counter Strike so addictive, not the graphics.

e-p-ayeaH2640d ago

Alot people still play CS 1.6 and CZ everyday and still keep upgrading their graphic cards once in a while.

clearelite2640d ago (Edited 2640d ago )

Exactly, there is nothing else out like counterstrike.
If they don't appreciate the hardcore goodness of this game, maybe they should go play COD or FF13.
Perhaps they would prefer they ruined the series, added respawn, and cover mechanics like Socom. Effectively turning the franchise into a laughing stock.

BTW, the graphics WILL be further polished, but that's not what this game is about. Go play FF13 if you need pretty graphics.

SJPFTW2640d ago

gameplay makes games not graphics. hence why no one really plays uncharted 2 or killzone 2 anymore. lol

TheCampfireSong2640d ago

30k people on UC2 and full lobbies in kz2.

jwk942640d ago

wow, trolling to the max.

zeeshan2640d ago

SJPFTW: You sir, are an IDIOT!

Army_of_Darkness2640d ago

I'm confused now?! which is it pc boy?! graphics or gameplay?! or maybe it's the pc fanboys that can afford upgrades brag about crysis, while the broke ass pc gamers prefer gameplay aka counter strike cause thats the only game their pc can handle?! LOL!

SJPFTW2640d ago

lol i have uncharted 2 and it takes forever to be put in a full game even at peak hours. not to mention most of the gamemodes are empty. and its what a 2 year old game?

yahh like 5 full lobbies in KZ2 omg its so popular lol ....

PR0X12640d ago

PC has the best graphics by default. As it's not restricted by any hardware.

So don't even start talking about graphics.

People play counterstrike because it has one of the best gameplay of any shooter. Just like cod4.

People don't care if the upgrade is not that huge as long as the gameplay is still great it's all good.

clearelite2640d ago

Actually more like 40k play UC2 every day. But yes, the great gameplay is still why hundreds of thousands of people still play Counterstrike. If you like to complain, go play one of the many COD UPGRADES that have been released then. That way you can run into combat with NO PLAN, no strategy, and no concern, get killed, then respawn every 5 seconds.

snipes1012639d ago

@SJPFTW...You realize there's a third Killzone game right? Who cares if the second one doesn't really have anyone playing?

SJPFTW2639d ago

yes and a year from now KZ3 is going to be empty. *YAWN*

Shackdaddy8362640d ago (Edited 2640d ago )

I'm so incredibly excited for this game. CS is my second favorite fps(next to BF). I can't wait to play GG, ZM, and surf again.

Farsendor12640d ago

the source engine is outdated still could be a fun game.

Yeah and really, after playing counterstrike 1.6 for dozens of hours, it is one of my only options as a "hardcore gamer".
