I'll be honest, not a fan! I had high hopes and this feels weird to play. I used to play HEAPS of CSS (a bit of 1.6 but my memory of it isn't that good) and CS:GO just feels... severely dated! No bobbing feels strange and unnatural (much easier for aiming though!) and the soundscape is thin and harsh, like AM radio. I don't know, perhaps I've been playing way too much BF3 which, love it or hate it, is a much better looking and sounding game.
Gah, I hate listening to myself say that because I normally like to be positive but I just couldn't shake my dislikes. Don't even get me started on that Buy menu, I'm sure it's something anyone could get used to but I found it just awful to use and ended up using Auto Buy (oh the shame)! Then there's the hit reg (or lack there of), there'd be some guy spraying me from metres away and I'm still alive, then other times a headshot from the other side of the map just as I round a corner! The usual levelling up of players to AWPs was the final straw, I prefer close quarter battles with assault rifles etc., rather than sniping, it just feels less cheap.
Anyway, that's just my opinion and perhaps you guys like it for the reasons I don't - that's cool, so long as you get your money's worth then that's all that matters! I did a blind purchase and decided to check out the beta, perhaps after some more time has passed I'll check back in and see what the final product is like but I'm expecting this to just sit unused in my Steam list sadly.
