I bought this game on sale, because i wanted to have the full CS collection, but what a great surprise i got when i actually played it. Its CS with a campaign mode or Tour of Duty, whatever you wanna call it.
If you want a challenging single-player mode with different difficulties and maps, then this game has what you want but expect some bugs and the AI isnt great but gets the job done and its challenging enough for a good time.

The Deleted Scenes game only adds more content to CZ with new missions all over the world where you play as different units with a story behind each mission and a lot of objectives to follow. The game isnt recent but you can still have fun with it in 2014, at least, in my opinion.

I totally recommend if you wanna have some single-player fun.

Counter-Strike: Condition Zero is the first official sequel to mod Counter-Strike, released in retail in 2004. It was pretty much same Counter-Strike on same engine and minimal changes when it comes to multiplayer experience, but it had more to often to solo players, with addition of bots and "Deleted Scenes" pack of single-player missions.

Now, for multiplayer community... Is as good as ever. While it's not on the level of Counter-Strike 1.6, you will still be able to find few almost-full servers, whetever it's yet another De_Dust2 map or some server that actually rotates maps. Just more smaller tighter community. BUT it's kinda way too high-skilled by now for newbies to be able to enter in easily.

So, when it comes to the main, expected, multiplayer part of the game, it didn't recieve many changes. Explosive grenades are stronger. Hostages are a bit more realistical. The end.
Oh, and you will ntoice that graphics got a small boost, as far as HL1 engine goes ("GldSrc"). Models got more detail to them. Few tweaks here and there. Maps are much interesting as far as graphical design goes. If you are going to play de_dust2 non-stop then better do it at the less bland one.
And yes, I don't really like Counter-Strike realistical gameplay much here either.

Now, for single-player, you finally get some bots to play with. Which are less frustating for new people than online play and helps to hone aiming skills as well better. Though, while they navigate through default maps quite nicely, they don't always make best decision. As a protip, always send them a voice command to stick together, team. They also try not to steal your fun of defusing bomb, waiting for commander to do it, even if said commander is in opposite end of map. Yes, it's a flaw.
And like Quake 3 Arena and UT, CZ single player consist of repeated matches with bots, as you will progress through trio of maps, being able to pick less and less stupid teammates over time, always being on side of Counter-Terrorists. And on each map, you have to have more than 2 wins over score of Terrorist team and have to complete each of three objectives, which go like "rescue <x> hostages", "kill <x> amount of Terrorists yourself", "finish some round in <x> time" and "kill <x> terrorists with <y> weapon". So, fun for a while, but more of "just so something was there".

And now for Deleted Scenes. This is what Counter-Strike: Condition Zero was supposed to be at some point, a full-blown single-player campaign. It was "cancelled" once Valve saw magazines giving it low ratings to preview, just to have it put along as bonus into final game. All just to get low ratings once again due to being "more of same". Deleted Scenes had 12 missions in retail release, with Steam version adding 6 more that you can select anytime from World Map.

Now, Deleted Scene is a mix of good and bad. The excellent level design and repetive core gameplay.
First, good things. Level design is quite good one. You will have to take control of unnamed heroes of counter-terrorist operations all over the world, with missions having great variety, with enough lenght to keep you playing, having to stop terrorists from taking over nuke in snowy part of Russia, defending yourself in Arabain town or fighting your way through the jungles. Seriously, some of the missions just have a bit of that scripted hollywood love that would make them worthy of being in Call of Duty and alikes, quite epic! Levels themselves are also build with knowledge of pacing and a bit of exploration, albeit linear.
And it really tries to push GldSrc engine! In order to make it look like it's capable of more than expected, developers made a lot of animations of death for terrorists as well as destruction animations. Hell, I was amazed to see a stack of boxes getting squeezed by a door in the third mission, it's all quite joy to look at even if it's scripted. And well, it does hurt occasionally when it comes to enemies deaths. Like, when you shot with pistol at melee enemy into knee and he suddenly teleported half-meter away to the door, swirled and fell toward the door, just to get it open.

But core gameplay of Counter-Strike doesn't translate well at all into linear levels of single-player. What you bassicly will do, is to shoot few bullets into heads, while taking some hitscan bullets back. Repeat it on every enemy. Until the end of the game. It really is repetive and boring. Weapons don't matter much, all of them are good enough for bursting enemy again and again. Grenades aren't given often and flashbang don't seem to be as useful as in multiplayer. Smoke grenade is more offensive there though, making enemies cough instead sometimes. There is little enemy variety as well, you just got whatever hitscan stupid enemy, stationary snipers with laser, whatever melee enemy that rushes you and terrorist with freaking bazooka that is pain to avoid too! So, burst headshot, and burst headshot, repeat repeat repeat.
It also finally get to have some music there. For once. So, something definitely good.

Counter-Strike Condition Zero is better offer than Counter-Strike 1.6 and has more value for solo players, but it's still not good enough to get me much interested in such twitchy realistical shooter. I still wouldn't recommend new people, especially with newer CS titles out there, only those who already play Counter-Strike should check out this one.

I bought 1.6 and I noticed "Condition Zero" and "Condition Zero Deleted Scenes" popped up in my library. That's a plus, it comes for free with the original counter-strike.

Condition Zero is amazing. It's the Counter-Strike gameplay we all expect, but with a teambuilding menu and a campaign that bears similarities to Unreal Tournament 2004. Across all the different maps, you'll be fighting the terrorists with your co-op bots, all of which have custom statistics, weapons and stats for Skill, Bravery, and Co-op.

Now, let's talk about CZ Deleted Scenes. I've always wondered if Valve ever considered making a Half-Life style campaign for Counter-Strike. It seems like such an excellent idea... and this seems to be a direct message to me saying "Been there, Done that." That's right, this is a campaign, complete with events and mission-specific objectives. In Counter-Strike.

These two games along with 1.6 knock GO out of the park. If you want a Counter-Strike game for both online and offline, look no further than the CS 1.6 + CZ bundle. Probably some of the greatest $10 you'll ever spend. Also, there's no chance of an MP shutdown, since Valve holds the servers up with Steamworks to this day-- not that it would shut down, 1.6 is 20,000 concurrent players strong at all times.

EDIT: Okay, maybe 30,000 people.

counter-strike condition zero was one of a kind. now the reason why people didn't really like it or play it because it didn't feel like you where playing counter strike. now there's a lot of good thing's about this half-life 1 modification like you know that it made a change for once and all the player-model's where pretty good and the npc's and everything really about it was good. it's like why would you hate this game was like counter strike 1.6 but it had a lot of new thing's to it. some people would really get bored of getting the bomb and helping the hostages so that's why they added deleted scenes. this is a really good counter-strike!

This game is a great game, but what it lacks in it is a good interface.

approved:

- Campaign
- Gameplay
- Multiplayer

rejected:

- Audio
- Inteligencia Artificial (robots are too dumb)
- Multiplayer (players)
- Interface

I recommend buying this game, but it has many non-approved by me, so why he negative.

The expansion of Counter Strike 1.6, but with a Single Player storyline!
It was pretty fun, challenging and interesting.
Not much to say, I enjoyed it.

The only Counter-Strike I don't enjoy. It's basically CS 1.6 with an exceptionally boring singleplayer.

Personally it was an awesome game in its day, but with greater versions like CS: Source and CS:GO, why would you bother playing the original. It just turned 15 years old now, but nothing special is being done with it. If Valve could at least add some achievements and maybe trading cards to the game, it would have a reason for me to play the game again
