Counter-Strike: Ok, after 9 years of unlimited fun with friends, I have finally quit counter strike. Counter strike, in all of its versions, its just a great FPS game that anyone can enjoy it. Its a great game and all, you just cant stop playing it, you can just sit and play with your friends for days with out stoping. The huge weaoponary option you can choose and the smooth and sound of the game, its just f*cking addicting. With this games I've met so many different people and unique friends. This game is literally G(OLD). To all the young players who are looking for a good cheep and fun game to play with their friends, I highlly recommend on this. I've got (with steam record) 2,484hrs record in counter strike IN TOTTAL,,, and who knows how many more hrs in a non official steam version of this game.... Great Game. GG WP.
And too all the people who will keep playing this game, all I can say, as always, GL & HF <3

This game is unlike the other counter strike games.
This game requires a different type of skill.
You have to become used to the recoil each weapon has.
You also have to become familiar with the different advantage points of each map.
I personally think this is the best counter-strike game.

First of all its my first online game ever. I was very young and i was playing with my friends LAN matches sometimes for fun sometimes with bets the loser treats refreshments. xD This game its the reason that i maked my mum to buy me a PC to playing this game at my home. With the time i learn how to modding on CS 1.6 servers,plugins and more stuffs about PC. After this i learn how to aim on the enemy head, how to fire inside the walls, how to hear someone with his steps and HOW TO FIGHT!!! I have played many FPS(First Person Shooter) Games that they called me hacker of my fast killing.
I had so fyckin good and bad moments on that game that i will not forget never.
For others its only a game for me it was MY LIFE! This wasnt a review but a little story.

SO COUNTER-STRIKE FTW ♥♥♥♥♥♥ES!!

I don't like because Steam blocked redirections from server to server. I know that people using it to slowhack, but now... servers with redirection are unusefull..
Also, VAC not working good for Counter-Strike 1.6. Maybe it could be good for some update, or something...

I can give you anything you need for it.

Contact me.

Kinds and Regards,

Old good game never dies.

I remember first time playing this game when I was in elementary school. Hiding teacher to play this game with friends is very fun, you should let your kid have experiences like this.

Pre-Release Review
Blame this game for the rise of the online multiplayer modern military shooter. Good game, great custom maps, terrible community. Not much has really changed since 2000, has it?

I don't think anyone still plays this particular version of CS though.

Edit: Wait, there are over 8,000 people in-game right now. Wow... guess I have to give this a "yes" then because it isn't dead.
