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!

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.

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

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

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
