Very very nice story-line. It blew my mind. But sadly very demanding in hardware. Setting to medium to high and enabling up-scaling will make it look a bit worse but on a GTX 980 TI it will increase your FPS to a playable value. Sadly it's a bit blurry due to the way they implemented the engine. But you will get used to it. Worth all the bucks (steam-sale, 18 bucks - Would have bought for 35 bucks too)

To be honest, the adaptations of CS1.6 to CS:S to CS:GO became worse and worse. But on CS:GO it became a complete disaster. In-game purchases, unlockables, ranks: Nothing the real CS ever was about.

Anyway, I bought this game a few years ago on a LAN party and I enjoyed a few public games there with my friends. Now, my friends are playing it way more than our previous we play together-games such as Battlefield or Starcraft so I simply also began to play it again.

But here it becomes tricky: Before I can play on a non-cheating infested or full of noobs-team public server with my friends (a.k.a competitive mode) I need to become level 3. Yeah, this was a hard run, since you only can rank up very slowly in public-games but I managed this.

But then there was a new border I had to cross: I need to win 10 competitive games in order to be competitively ranked and be able to play with my friends. So I did that. But now the new major bummer: I’m only allowed to win two matches a day. WTF?

My friends told me it’s all about getting smurfs and cheaters from coming back to competitive again easily. But to be honest: A cheater simply can wait this time and doesn’t care. He will play a few games with his cheat everyday and after five days, he is back in. But for a normal player like me, I’m getting stones put in my way. Counter-Strike as it is with CS:GO is dead to me, even though I would like to play it.

After finally challenging the thresholds it became a little bit of fun. I still enjoy Battlefield 4 a lot more. But these "smurf and cheaters"-countermeasures are not anything which makes the entry to a game easy. For this time I guess, Valve failed a bit...
