What makes CS GO a Must Buy FPS Game of 2012

There are numerous reasons to buy the new release from Valve, some of them (the most important ones) being its improved graphics, cross-platform gameplay and two new game mods.

Improved graphics: As already seen in the youtube video promo, the game is packed with awesome graphics. If there’s great graphics, the higher speed net connection is required to play it online. Well 1MBPS will be quite enough. Screenshots below.

Cross-platform gameplay: The game will be available for Windows PC, Mac, Sony Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. The best thing of this version was its cross platfom gameplay. But due to update frequency issues the cross-platform is limited to PC and Mac.

Two new game mods: In the previous versions, we had two basic mods – bomb defusal and hostage rescue. CS: GO has two more mods. Arms race and demolition. Arms race is a deathmatch based game where every player is rewarded for each kill with a new weapon. And Demolition is a round based mod which strips player’s weapon and disables them to purchase a new weapon.

I am yet to get my hands on this game. What are your thoughts about this game? Will it be as successful as CS 1.6?
