7,5 for this game? This is too much, I would give 6,0, This is the same counter-strike as ever, they got the Source version and only changed the graphic, none new maps for the classic multiplayer. This is not worth the price of xbox live. What a pity, I was hagging so much that they finally launch something new and diferent.I belive that they are going to launch new maps, but ask for money for each of than, this is a shame. I will play Gears of Wars 3 multiplayer, it has many maps and a lot news.

Why did yu give the best multi-player shooter a 7.5? Just because it's not like COD doesn't mean you have to give it a 7.5. I'm curious why a game which is the same piece of crap every year always gets a 9.5/10. But when an original awesome FPS game comes around it gets a 7.5. WTF?!?!?!  I'm glad I'm switching to PC gaming OXM.

You're kidding me, right? I like Counter-Strike as much as the next person but what you said doesn't make any sense at all. Let's review: CoD 4 - Campaign and Multiplayer, MW2 - New campaign, Tweaked multiplayer, and Special Ops, Black Ops - New Campaign, tweaked multiplayer (again), and Zombies mode, MW3 - New Campaign, Multiplayer, Special Ops, and Survival Mode. All of that is in five years because Cod 4 came out in 2007 but the only thing that has changed in Counter-Strike in 12 YEARS is the graphics and the guns, no campaign, no unique mode, no huge (or minor for that matter) to the game at all, absolutely nothing, just the same multiplayer suite for twelve years and you're complaining that CoD is the same, ok, that's logic for you.

The Critical Big E

@TheDirectorChris21 The thing is, though, that CoD has a release every year (since 2003 I believe) and it's basically the same thing, with minor tweaks.  Counter Strike has had 3 releases in 12 years, but all of the games play vastly different.  Also, there's a little thing called mod support, so the game has tons of longevity due to that.  Even if you bought this game on a console, it would still be fun.  It's a simple formula with many strategies to learn that, its incredible balance, and the fact that you need skill to win, is what separates thi game from CoD.  CoD is a fun run and gun to play with your friends, but it pales in comparison to how CS gets your blood pumping when you pull off an ace (a 1vs5 clutch).

Your stupidity amazes me. Say goodbye to Xbox 360 and Hello to Desktop.
