I love this game. I started playing this game back in 2001, and still catch myself playing it from time to time. To me, it is a classic. To many, it is dated, ugly, and heavily flawed. I think it's quite fine the way it is. I have played many multiplayer FPS games, and aside from Goldeneye, CS gives me the most enjoyment. CS (well 1.6) isn't thriving today like it was back in the early 2000's, but I still think this is a must own game for anyone who plays FPS team based games. Would buy again, and again, and I have.

one of the best and the oldest games in the world of pc's is still showing tis worth in this avid unvierse filled with games with cheeky and extravagant graphics, counter strike has proved its worth of being one of the most loved games in the history of FPS gaming. With a simple rule to the game, kill 'em all and keep shooting, this game has become a platform for 6 of its installations (including the deleted scenes too) Counter Strike : Global Offensive being the next best version of the game. The oldies will love it, and the kids, ah the kids might just leisurely use this game as a way of passing time or by killing their enemies imaginatively.

After 17 years (13 if you want to count from 1.6 steam) there's still 2976 servers running.

Nuff said.

With only ~4000 hours of playtime (plus a few thousand prior to Steam), i might not be worthy of reviewing this game.

So i'll just leave it at: recommended.
