I've played this game since I was around 6 years old back in 2002 and it still makes me laugh and have fun whenever I launch it to this very day. Over 12 years of endless entertainment. No other game on this planet has given me more entertainment and enjoyment than Counter-Strike 1.6 has and I doubt no game ever will.

Reason i've only got 38 hours here is because I no longer use the account I originally played cs 1.6 on.


func_vehicle is what makes this Counter Strike game the best out of all the others in the franchise.

Find a server that has car maps or maps with func_vehicle entities and you will have endless fun running over teammates and enemies in all kinds of hilarious and goofy vehicles not giving a care in the world.

You can drive a fork with a meatball on the end of it. Do i need to say more?

Mods on this game are amazing too. There is a mod where you can catch pokemon, level them up, train them and use their skills. Call of Duty mod that is suprisingly better than cod its self, Warcraft mods, zombie mods, basebuilder and so on...

There is even a map for the jailbreak gamemode that has driveable snowmobiles.

1337/10

Leet crew 5 lyf

Kicks csgo's ♥♥♥ by a mile. I forgot how good wallbanging is in this game.

P.S - CS 1.6 is the only Counter Strike game where you can headshot with a knife or buy Riot Shields. Enjoy!

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!

Counter-Strike: Ok, after 9 years of unlimited fun with friends, I have finally quit counter strike. Counter strike, in all of its versions, its just a great FPS game that anyone can enjoy it. Its a great game and all, you just cant stop playing it, you can just sit and play with your friends for days with out stoping. The huge weaoponary option you can choose and the smooth and sound of the game, its just f*cking addicting. With this games I've met so many different people and unique friends. This game is literally G(OLD). To all the young players who are looking for a good cheep and fun game to play with their friends, I highlly recommend on this. I've got (with steam record) 2,484hrs record in counter strike IN TOTTAL,,, and who knows how many more hrs in a non official steam version of this game.... Great Game. GG WP.
And too all the people who will keep playing this game, all I can say, as always, GL & HF <3

This game is unlike the other counter strike games.
This game requires a different type of skill.
You have to become used to the recoil each weapon has.
You also have to become familiar with the different advantage points of each map.
I personally think this is the best counter-strike game.

I don't like because Steam blocked redirections from server to server. I know that people using it to slowhack, but now... servers with redirection are unusefull..
Also, VAC not working good for Counter-Strike 1.6. Maybe it could be good for some update, or something...

I can give you anything you need for it.

Contact me.

Kinds and Regards,

First of all its my first online game ever. I was very young and i was playing with my friends LAN matches sometimes for fun sometimes with bets the loser treats refreshments. xD This game its the reason that i maked my mum to buy me a PC to playing this game at my home. With the time i learn how to modding on CS 1.6 servers,plugins and more stuffs about PC. After this i learn how to aim on the enemy head, how to fire inside the walls, how to hear someone with his steps and HOW TO FIGHT!!! I have played many FPS(First Person Shooter) Games that they called me hacker of my fast killing.
I had so fyckin good and bad moments on that game that i will not forget never.
For others its only a game for me it was MY LIFE! This wasnt a review but a little story.

SO COUNTER-STRIKE FTW ♥♥♥♥♥♥ES!!
