WARNING: LONG REVIEW.
Counter Strike: Source is quite possibly the Best and one of the earliest Games that i purchased here on steam. It's basically like the original Counter Strike but with the power of the source engine to revamp the game to give it some Pros, and quite many points of negativities.

First, lets start with the weapons. Like the Original CS 1.6, the Recoil is quite the same as from CSS. The difference i noticed that the original Deagle in CS 1.6 Takes 2 shots to shoot perfectly where the crosshair is pointed as-is. But in CSS, deagle takes only 1 shot to shoot perfectly. Next shots (2- 7 shots) will make it inaccurate. I like this feauture. But it's so overpowered i get fragged at T-Spawn in de_dust2 by only one shot with the Deagle. At the first round. So it's 50-50% that i hate/love this feature. AK-47 fires the same as in CS 1.6, no problem with that.

Ah, yes. The Source Engine™. How could i forget. Half-Life 2's revoloutionary Source engine, combined with CS 1.6 is quite amazing. Better graphics, features, ect etc etc etc. It somehow amazing, the VALVeh1]WARNING: LONG REVIEW.[/h1]

Ah, yes. The Source Engine™. How could i forget. Half-Life 2's revoloutionary Source engine, combined with CS 1.6 is quite amazing. Better graphics, features, ect etc etc etc. It somehow amazing, the VALVe™ formula works.

Third, the Bots. Good thing VALVe™ Added Bots. Those bots are my best friends [spoilers]Or enemies[/spoilers] when there's no Intenet Connnection. Bad thing is, these bots seemed like the AI is ported over from CS;CZ, which sucks. Ally bot AI is catastrophic. Bots block your way when they get idle, this is worse when they do this at de_dust2's Suicide path. And it makes you go to path Outside Long just to get to Mid/catwalk because Bots block your way. And that sucks ALOT.

TL;DR:

Recoil with deagle:
CS1.6CSS
2 Shots to be accurate1 shot to be accurate

Nonetheless, i still Like CSS. It's infact one of the reasons Steam™ is getting bigger than it was the other day.


7/10

Expert bots, not expert but hackers. If they see the tiny pixel of you, they will no scope headshot you with a shotgun from 500 miles.

The best Counter-Strike game in my opinion, too bad we dont see the highest level of competition since its CSGO that is played but still compatible for eSports. I do recommend this game if you dont give a damn about graphics, skins and other things csgo have, i only played this game 200 hours on steam but i have a thousand hours in this game life-time.

A little side note for people who played csgo first than cs:s, there are no cases here! I've seen alot of discussions about players asking how do i open cases and get skins on cs:s? Search gamebanana.com. It has skins for cs:s and other games :)
Good luck have fun and keep healing

Counter-Strike Source is a game we all know and love. Counter-Strike Source is the base of what everyone loves about CS:GO, but it has it's own feel to it. The 1990's Source Engine models, gameplay, etc. are what give this game to me an authentic computer game vibe. When you say FPS, many people including myself will automatically think "Counter-Strike!" The game itself is basic. You have terrorists. You have counter-terrorists. The terrorists are to plant and explode a bomb. The counter-terrorists are supposed to prevent them from doing that. Simple. Even though this is the most basic gametype in Counter-Stike, there are many other things to do in the game like surfing, hostage rescue, deathmatch, and many more. If you're a die-hard Valve fan or CS:GO fan, I highly recommend this staple in PC gaming history.
