But just because it's NEXT GENERATION doesn't mean it can't have good gameplay. Also, if a company is gonna cut corners on a graphics engine it tells me they are more prone to penny pinching.
Nowdays, I want both good gameplay and next generation graphics/ and or physics(or both). I really love immersive games and better graphics usually make it easier for a game developer to suck you in.
F.e.a.r(for its time on pc back in 2005, consol version is crap)
Gears of war
Grand theft auto 4(truly a masterpiece in physics for consol gamers, they finally get a taste, all be it a small one, of what pc gaming is about)
All with next generation graphics and all great games with great gameplay. OF course, you don't have to have next generation to make a good game, but it helps a great deal. Hey, WOW's graphics are nothing special, but even wow is an artistic masterpiece. What it lacks in graphics, it more than makes up for in the artistic department.
HOWEVER, it remains to be seen how much toothpaste is left in the counter strike engine. Perhaps there is more juice in it than we realise? Or maybe the graphics will be subpar at best but the gameplay will be a blast... thats possible also.
I know this much. If the graphics are bad/weak, the game is starting out its fight for success with one arm tied behind its back making the chances of it being a great game a lot harder.
I'll be buying this game no matter what the reviews if for no other reason than to see just how much juice is left in the tank for the CS engine. Well, that and I'm a sucker for zombie games.
