The best Counter-Strike currently released for competetive value/integrity.

It highly rewards the skilled players, unlike CS:GO and Source.

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.
