A remake/update of the original Counter-Strike, running on the Half-Life 2 Source engine. This title was made available through Valve's Steam downloading service in October of 2004, with a retail release in the Fall of 2005.
With a full complement of real world pistols, rifles and shotguns, Counter-Strike's battle of terrorists and counter-terrorists became the basic blueprint for many modern team-based online shooters.
Now enhanced with the power of the Source engine, the game features drastically improved visuals, enhancements on classic maps, offline skirmish play with AI bots and more.

Terrorists versus Counter-Terrorists with real-life weapons, one primary and one sidearm per player per round, bought along with grenades and suchlike before the round commences, you sit out the rest of the round when you're dead, and you can win by planting/defusing the bomb, protecting/rescuing the hostages, or killing off the other team - but it's a ♥♥♥♥♥ to master.

In original mode, there are bomb mission, rescue mission and VIP mission. Bomb mission is a popular mode for people. Terrorists have a bomb and they can set the bomb only A or B site. And counter-terrorists have to stop them. One of the famous map is Dessert. Next is rescue mission. Terrorists have 4 hostages and counter-terrorists have to rescue them. If you hurt or kill them, you will lose your money. Then you can’t buy expensive guns in next stage. Usually expensive gun is good:( Last is VIP mode. If you choose counter-terrorist team, you will be a VIP or regular counter-terrorist. Counter-strike team has to lead VIP to safe zone and terrorists have to make stop them. Terrorists can kill VIP. VIP can have only pistol.

All the maps benefit from a lot more incidental - and generally destructible - detail. Italy's market stall section now features all sorts of fruit displays, which react with great fervour to a grenade impact. Office, meanwhile, is a far more believable, um, office, complete with innumerable PC set-ups, signs encouraging employees and a well-stocked (albeit blown apart) underground car park.
Each of the maps has been given a lot of love and attention, although some plainly benefit more than others. Aztec, for example, takes best advantage of the new 3D skyboxes, which create the illusion of much more depth (temples rise into the sky, and banks of hills are lined with military supplies and vehicles), all harness bump-mapping techniques to make the most of their re-chiselled textures, and many make use of the engine's various showpieces - specular lighting effects on shiny floors, particles of sand dancing in the air, realistic splash effects and water behaviour, and increased detail in death animations.

Counter-Strike: Source is, once you've gained a knack for it, the most consistently rewarding and surprising team-based shoot-'em-up. This game was very popular for game users at that time and it is still popular to many people.

Pre-Release Review
One of the best games I played during my high school days.

Counter-Strike: Source is the 1st PC game I ever bought. I bought it in a retail store and used the physical CD to install it on my computer. It forced me to install Steam and now I own over 100 games on Steam.

There are 2 types of people.
1. I got this game because I like the Counter Strike/ Valve games!
2. I got this for Gmod textures.

I am both.

Ayy, laugh my butt off! First off, what is this game? This isn't Call of Duty. No, son, this game is Country-Steak: Sauce and yes, it's a dank deal, mate, Tesco's finest said so.

First time playing, you're going to get mega wrecked and question yourself, ''How do I quickscope?''. If you're feeling down like the little, fedora wearing scrublord that you are, why not get your nooby butt popped with a solid, mint-condition bag of Dorito's and to cool off your edgy skills with some Mountain Dew. Don't forget to even add in that inaudible dubstep that just adds passion and flare to your gaming, euphoria-induced experience. If you repeat all of these actions, you just might have the chance to receive a FaZe clan application. Damn son, how does that sound and where'd you find this? you'll be the face of the MLG jubilee. Scrubs and hackers alike will all be wrecked by your hands, and may just in fact denote you as a cheeky Illuminati representation, or possibly even a stupid, bloody camper. as you can see, you're definitely around the corner from a notorious OpTiC application and a B&Q. by the way, check out my mate, Derrick on YouTube, if he reaches 20 subscribers, he'll do a dank giveaway. but if you don't, I'm afraid you will be eaten by the spooky scary skeletons and brought down to the depths of an Aldi's public urinal.

This game has many different servers of I don't bloody know, ducky darling. So, be sure to check them out, mate, or not, I don't give a damn. But please, do not ever lie to me about this game, if you're caught hacking, lose all your weed and fedora and get a VAC ban, it's your fault, you dirty, dragon eating little bloody fapster. And on a related note, be careful of hackers, not only are they noobs, but they will definitely steal your fresh swag and obey cap in the process.

Make sure that there are no snipers creeping behind you, so you can easily deck them in their heads, with your mighty 360 no handscope, pimp slap, as you're followed by the blinding lense flare. The mechanics, noscopes, hardscopes and of course, the precious quickscopes in this game are so amazing, that it'll leave you screaming, ''mum, get the camera!'' with joy, enthusiasm and adrenaline, as you easily hook all your opponents in their puny little gabbers. you'll be the star with inevitable saying, ''Watch this, lads.'' followed by only the kills a CoD global elite sniper could pull off. with every euphoric game that passes by, be sure to treat yourself to a quick blaze of a dank spliff, right around 4:20pm, with a small giggle, ''Good game, lads, no rematch.'' never leave it as, ''sample text.'' As it will only just make them more edgy and make thme beg for your dank rank as well as your Steam login. Bloody hackers, don't talk crap to me online, or I'll ban you, my dad works for Colgate toothpaste.

By the way, did I mention this game is great?

This was brought to you by Tesco's everyday value tomato soup, with special thanks to Kelloggs' cereal for the weed flakes to help me write this review. they're so great, mate, only 20p each.

Haha, Asda tried to bribe me to not write my reviews, what a packet of Hob-knobs.

So,its been a while since i bought this.
Not playing it soo much because of csgo (damn you ><)
Anyway,its an HD Remake of the classic cs 1.6
Its really well done. Sadly most of players moved to csgo :c

Came home from school one day to see that this was on sale. I originally only wanted it for Garry's Mod content, but then I tried it. Didn't really enjoy it, so I left it. A year later, I tried it again and had A LOT of fun.

Pros
===========
+ Extremely Fun
+ Good Graphics
+ Mods
+ Friendly Community
+ Nice Game To Play On the Go

Rate: 9.5/10
