better than cs:go:
- you have spray feature (removed in cs:go)
- you have flashlight & nightvision (removed in cs:go)
- you have dark maps and/or dark places on a map (removed in cs:go, dark places are pretty bright, this is why there is no more flashlight & nightvision, it destroys the immersion, dark places & dark maps are useful for many aspects ingame (hiding or warcraft server when cloaked or when you want someone to knife) and reminds me of 2002 game bf1942 where dark maps are not really dark lol. VALVE shame on you)
- You have character selection (removed in cs:go)
- you have no ranking & market feature (added in cs:go, everyone plays cs:go because they think they end up as a rich-♥♥♥♥♥, also on every server there is trade spam in chat and even you get friendrequest spam from traders, also community is not looking at your skill anymore, but at your rank and not every server + singleplayer against bots has rank enabled.)
- You have no CoD clone like CS:GO

Unlike CS:GO, everyone plays this for fun, not for useless skins, money, rank etc.. also, here you cant waste 600$ for a skin. You can get even new models (which does not only change your weapon texture, but the model) from gamebanana for FREE! You can make your M4 look like the G36C etc.

10/10 my fav childhood game

A good old classic CS with a story mode will bring back joyful memory of your childhood. I highly recommended for anyone who wants to fell the young again. And also new players who want to know if CS has a campaign.I hope in the future they would make game like this. It would be great, Looking forward to CS:GO deleted scene ;P

If you want a good time, you'll play 1.6. Game runs in 1080p with insanly amazing graphics. playing 16:9 1920 x 1080 allows for the best visual settings. Although many russians own the servers, there are a couple US servers which has limited russians. Good luck playing this game with your potato of a computer.

Still fun after all these years. This is also the most moddable FPS on the market, and can be played even on very slow machines. Probably the best FPS of all time. Don't forget to download bots, though! I reccomend ZBot, which is very easy to use, and has an in-game UI that is brought up by pressing 'H'.

100,000,000,000 Times better than csgo, cancer is almost non existant in this game, everyone is friendly, if ESEA, ESL or CEVO still had a pug / scrim service for this I would uninstall cancer strike : p90 offensive in a ♥♥♥♥ing heartbeat and play some proper counter strike!

Once, there was a time, when we read live matches at IRC, when we watched ineye demos, when we played tl20 and 15, when we where called "killerplayer", when we wrote norecoil scripts, when we turned of graphic details to have a better view through smoke grens, when we could see bomb defuses through the ceiling at de_nuke.
That was a great time, when I was young and beautiful and that was Counterstrike at it's best.

Counter Strike is the best shooting game, i've ever played. The 'real cs', where you plant bombs etc. is not 10/10 gaming, but look at all those great mods! The greatest thing in cs is playing mod servers, and you do not need to download them from your web, you just simply double click that server, and that's it! At first I recommend to play normal cs, if it gets boring try other servers. Oh and original maps aren't that great, except de_dust2. You must try cs even if you think it has low graphics. Gameplay is much more important than graphics, remember that!

Such a highly reccomended game for those who want to get it, playing this game in 2016 reminds me of the old style games i used to play on the playstation 2.

I recently came back to play this game due to the fact Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is simply a great game and wanting to seen the origin.

10/10

In this game you can play many many modes and its the most positive thing. Its not only about shooting or about playing tactic games. You can just "chillout" on some kinds of servers and thats what I always loved in CS 1.6.

About Counter-Strike
Counter-Strike is a first-person shooter game from Valve, the first of the Counter-Strike series.

Play the world's number 1 online action game. Engage in an incredibly realistic brand of terrorist warfare in this wildly popular team-based game. Ally with teammates to complete strategic missions. Take out enemy sites. Rescue hostages. Your role affects your team's success. Your team's success affects your role.

Gameplay
Counter-Strike is a round based game where you play as counter terrorist or play as terrorist. As a counter terrorist, your task is to prevent the terrorist from planting a bomb and detonate it or rescue a captured hostages and lead them to the hostage rescue zone, while the terrorist team has to do the opposite. Weapons has hard recoil so you can't just spray and pray, short burst fire can save you in critical situation. Before the round begins, you can and need to buy weapons and equipments with money, you get money by winning the round or killing the enemy team. This type of gameplay encourages team work.

Counter-Strike is a good game. I recommend this game.

Thanks Valve Thanks !!! Old but Gold !!!

9/10 From Me
