Pre-Release Review
Posted: July 1
Absolutely recommended. People are still playing, designing maps and skins for this game seventeen years after its first release. It is The Wizard of Oz of first-person shooters - a true classic and must-play for any fan of the genre and videogames in general.

While the graphics may be dated by 2016 standards, this means even a very old computer can run it without a hitch, and the great gameplay ultimately trumps everything else.

Playing it with and against friends has been a huge part of my childhood and adolescence. Thanks for all the years of fun, "impossible" headshots, wallshots, and blowing people up with grenades!

Counter-Strike was the game that changed everything for me in FPS games, coming from older games like the FPS Game Blood back in (1997) when I was only 10 years old and Half-Life, Counter-Strike changed everything for me it was litterally the best thing ever.

The quality of the game was never about the visuals for me but about the game play and performance and Counter-Strike litterally had it all in my opinion.

Even today after so many years, I occasionally come back and play Counter-Strike just because it is one of the greatest Counter-Strike versions flat out, anyone disputing this are most likely people that started playing either Counter-Strike: Source or Counter-Strike: Global Offensive first then tried Counter-Strike but if you played it in the right order there is no disputing this, because this game might frighten most the new generation that has expectations to visual graphics having to have a certain standard before they will even touch it.

Counter-Strike is not about the visuals, that is just a bonus, if you want visuals then you probably playing the wrong game, Counter-Strike was never Battlefield nor CoD which probably to many looks visually stunning.

If you want quality in a game then Counter-Strike is one of the best games to play and get, hence why I am recommending this game.
