Counter-Strike, in all of its versions, is just a great FPS game that anyone can enjoy. It's a great game and all, you just can't stop playing it, you can just sit and play with your friends for days without stopping from doing it. The huge weaponry options, which you can choose, the smoothness of the gameplay and sound of the game, it's just really addicting. With this game, I've met so many different people and unique friends. This game is literally G(OLD). I recommend this masterpiece to all the passionate Action & F.P.S. players who are looking for a good, cheap and fun game to play with their friends. All I can say, as always: Good Luck & Have Fun! <3

Best Game of the Cs series without a doubt. Great communities Such as m3 has over 1000 maps. SO MANY custom maps and they're still making them. No cancerous kids just adults/ 16-19 yr olds playing. Best game in the series by far 10/10

I will just say, that i spent half of my time that im living on this game. When i was a bit smaller, like 9-10 i have always been playing CS 1.6, this account was given to me by another guy, my known friend. And just to say, on my another account i have 2000+ hours in this game, and i had like 4 accounts.
The best shooter in the university, here it is. Counter Strike 1.6 with the Half-Life Launcher. Hell yeah.
