"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."

Do you hate overpriced skins?
Do you hate countless updates that don't improve the game but make it worse?
Do you hate matchmaking cool downs?

you should move from cs:go to css

Counter-Strike: Source

Story - It doesn't have one, but it has tons of servers with different gamemodes and if you play with bots, it's the normal hostage rescure or bomb defuse. I love it. 10/10

Storyline Length - As long as you want, but each match shouldn't take you more than 4 minutes.

AI - Ruthless. But they can't throw grenades for ♥♥♥♥. 9/10

Experience - You'll laugh, you'll rage, you'll yell "SHUT UP" at people playing bad music through the ingame voice chat. 10/10

Graphics - It's from 2003 or 2004 (i don't remember) so I can't really say anything. But they're pretty good. 9/10

Sounds / Voice Acting - You can choose. Between normal radio. And the bot's custom radio. The guns are bloody loud. And at the very end. You'll always hear the glorious "(Counter) Terrorists Win!" 10/10

Controls - Just. Easy. You can learn them in literally 10 seconds. 10/10

Overall - 10/10

It's kinda hard to play multiplayer because everyone's either cheating or are just elites. If you want to go up against noobs, go play CS:GO. Regardless, you'll have a great time playing this game, playing with bots or with real people. No Steam Library is complete without this beautiful game.

One of the best Counter-Strike games. Good sounds, good graphics, kinda strange physics, but whatever. You won't need to pay for the skins for your weapons, you won't need to suffer from the awful sounds which were invented in csgo. If you wanna play old, good Counter-Strike - you should get this game(Or you can also get yourself CS 1.6).

OK, I've played GO: Can't stand it, the sounds, hitboxes, pretty much everything.
I've played 1.6: Grew up playing against my Dad, kicked his ***, loved it, recoil kills tho.
I've played CZ: I was yelling at how ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ the bots are, and just the point of the game in general.
Source: Mod it to much, gotta get them skin packs and map packs and bhop and whatnot. I migrated to this from GO, and it's hella better. Highly recommend it, even if you suck at CS in general.

I wouldn't be able to play GMod without this, so I'm giving it a good review.

If you couldn't tell, that was a joke. This game is good on its own. I would rather play this than CS:GO. CS:GO is full of people that have no life and spend money on virtual weapons. That is just pathetic.

A knife in that game sold for $45000. Who the f**k spends $45000 in real money on a virtual weapon? That's pathetic.
