Nice oldschool game! Counter-Strike is very cool game, but now we can play the CS series of games like CS:Source and CS:GO... I can't say which game is better, it's your choice. But i can't forget this game like my childhood, thanks to VaLVE for it!

ignore my 4 hours played, overall ive spents way too many nights and way went through sooo much mtn dew playing this game, this NOTHING like COD, this is definetly a shooter for the most competitive players out there. you have to be quick on your feet and even think even faster.if your new to this game dont give up if you dont have much luck at first, learn the maps learn the guns and most of all learn how others will play, learn how they rush where they prenade and where they camp. after a few games you will sell how most people play out a map. and yes this game is very old and the graphics are crap but if you apprieciate good gameplay and a friendly community then get this game. there are still tons of people playing, its 2 am and there are over 1500 servers still up about 100 full

Quite possibly the purest form of First Person Shooter, only rivaled by Quake. In my opinion, it is undoubtedly the best game out of the Counter-Strike series.
Only downside with this game, is that it has already had its primetime.
