"FPS themed around terrorist vs counter terrorist. If you have Steam you must OWN this game, it's one of the main games that made steam so big today."

I personally think this is the best game of the counterstrike franchise. The second I bought this game I was immediately enthralled in it's compettitive gameplay and awesome teamwork. I highly recommend this for any fps fans, because this is a really cool gaming experience. People who play GO but have never played Source are really missing out. I hope you get this great game, and enjoy it. Have fun.

Best Counter-Strike aside from the classic CS 1.6. Don't waste your money with CS:GO, spend the few extra dollars and buy a Counter-Strike worth your time.

Still better than CS:GO, especially if you enjoy playing the mods
instead of normal gameplay. Highly recommend after playing the game for few hours :-)

One of the greatest online multiplayer FPS games of the old and also most of the current generations, there is a single player mode to do a standard match with bots but the true value in this game is freely mod-able community servers, which has kept the game alive and feeling fresh to players for ages.
You can spend hours and days on end looking through the list of servers running all kinds of game modes, Jail Break, Gun Game, Zombie Escape, Zombie Riot, Surf, to name a few and even some servers that dont have anything to do with shooting, like MiniGames servers where its a course you have to maneuver through without falling.

Garrys Mod is an adaptation to CSS mixed with a little HL2 so if you like the other Source Engine games then CSS is for you, CS:GO has community servers as well but with all the hype of the "matchmaking" modes nobody even looks at the Mod servers, so if you like the gameplay change of community servers then CSS is for you, but if you like the standard style multiplayer matches like in Call of Duty then you probably wanna go for CS:Global Offensive.

I used to run an old laptop with a 2.14 Ghz single core AMD Sempron CPU and an AMD Radeon 4200 with 256MB, so if your systems a little better you should run things fine on all low settings.
