There's a new [url=http://www.gamespot.com/xbox/action/counterstrike/preview_6074783.html]Counter-Strike Xbox hands-on preview[/url] over at GameSpot, based on a three level demo they were able to check out. The preview specifically touches on the HALO-like controls (which don't suck by the way) and the bot AI, which can be set to various difficulty levels. Here's a clip from the preview: We got to play on three maps: Dust and Italy, which should be eminently familiar to longtime CS players, and Vostok, a snowy demolition map made especially for the Xbox game (of the 20 maps that will initially be available, seven are Xbox-exclusive). The two old maps played very much like their PC counterparts, though they looked a lot more detailed. Cliffe pointed out that the Xbox version uses 24- and 32-bit textures instead of the 8-bit palettized ones found on the PC. From our brief time with it, Vostok also seemed to be a well-made and CS-like map, with plenty of cover to duck behind and a mixture of tight passageways, balconies, and open courtyards. More maps should be available, via Xbox Live updates, sometime after release. The preview is accompanied by [url=http://www.gamespot.com/xbox/action/counterstrike/screenindex.html]11 screenshots,[/url] some of which have previously appeared on other sites. Furthermore, GameSpot Complete members can check out no less than [url=http://www.gamespot.com/xbox/action/counterstrike/media.html]five gameplay movies[/url] of the game.
