When talking about games and especially reviewing them, I hate comparing them. The phrase ‘It’s like ‘this’ but…’ makes me cringe, since when can a game not just take inspiration from another without it being a copy or clone of another, bigger title. With that said, Counter Strike Global Offensive, or more commonly known as CS:GO, could well be the love child of Left 4 Dead and Half Life 2. A legitimate one of course.

It makes sense to use those comparisons due to both titles being created by Valve, which is also the creative mind behind the original PC first person shooter classic Counter Strike, but is a new addition to the CS family going to be a welcome one? With the current state of shooters, most notably current warfare ones, we can only wait and see.
