"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."

Pre-Release Review
Posted: July 29
Source was a major update to all the old Half Life add-ons.

People did not get on board right away as we were stuck in our old ways.
In my opinion the game improved 10 fold adding better graphics and game mechanics.

A fun FPS that i would reccomend when its on sale.The community has mostly moved over to CS:GO but there are still people playing the original counter strike so there are still people playing this one.If you like fast paced FPS then go play COD (Call Of Duty) this is a team based FPS and does require a lot of practice to win against the people who still play.Anyway,this game has not and will not be updated anymore.CS:GO is much more lively but does not use the source physics engine, so Mr Great Ideas,no you cannot hide a bomb under a barrel in CS:GO but you can in source physics engine in CS:S (Counter Strike:Source).I miss the old physics engine :( .

Overall i would give this game 7/10 because of the small community and oudated graphics.It would be 6/10 if there was no nostalga and 5 if there was no cool physics engine.

I hope this review helped anyone who didn't know what the game is about and i hope you enjoy the game if you are going to play it.

Yours hopefully,Nice One/zenthree

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.
