Counter-Strike 2 is now the worst rated Valve game ever

Valve’s remake of the classic shooter has seen a sharp influx of negative reviews on Steam since launch.

Since the release of Counter-Strike 2 – after 11 years with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, players have flocked to Steam to review the new, ever so slightly different version of the game.

Valve promised that the sequel/remake would usher in a ‘a new era of Counter-Strike’ and ‘the largest technical leap forward’ in the franchise’s history , with a new game engine, reimagined visuals, and new smoke effects.

But a lot of people haven’t been as accepting of the new changes as Valve might’ve hoped, and it shows in the reviews.

Counter-Strike 2 is now categorised as ‘Mixed’ under its Recent Reviews tab, which is the first time any Valve game has been rated that low.

Other Valve games like Half-Life, Portal, Left 4 Dead, and Team Fortress 2 boasts recent reviews ranging from ‘Very positive’ to ‘Overwhelmingly positive’.

It’s getting worse too, as ever since Counter-Strike 2 launched on September 27, the number of negative reviews has sky-rocketed.

On September 28 Counter-Strike 2 received 9,991 negative reviews on Steam. While the game received 11,658 positive reviews on the same day, the increase in negative reviews compared to normal is significant.

Some players are complaining about having a game they once paid for be forcefully replaced with a game they didn’t ask for. Others are complaining about it being unplayable on Mac or calling it ‘a failed attempt to modernise the game’.

‘The vibrant and cartoony aesthetic clashes with the gritty and realistic atmosphere that CS:GO was known for. It feels like a departure from the game’s roots, and not in a good way,’ says a user on Steam named Babe.

‘CS:GO 2’s latest update feels like a misguided attempt to modernize a classic game,’

Another negative review, by ThoughtSpiral, says: ‘I get most of the reasoning behind most of it, but where’s War Games, why cut off all the three players who are on Mac, why kill CS:GO before CS2 is actually ready for tourney level play. What is going on?’

Change can be uncomfortable and that could be a part of the influx of negative reviews, especially as Counter-Strike 2 is still receiving more positive reviews than negative ones.
