The more polished, better looking cousin of Counter Strike, Condition Zero is the version of Counter Strike to not only play, but for developers to beat. The addition of the much-required shield has an important balance factor; it counters the usage of the AWP.

The hit detection is once again, superior to CSGO, much like the previous Counter Strike, and the aim for the weapons isn't cartoonishly exaggerated where you have weapons like the M249 and the shotgun being actually viable.

Online play is head-and-heels above CSGO's. In CSGO you feel like everythings a waste of time unless you're playing in competitive matches, while in CSCZ, and CS, pubs rule the game (like all classic multiplayer games). I can't say how sweet it was when someone who was clearly a CSGO player who looks like he just started playing CSCZ, killed a team mate to defuse the bomb himself, and then got perma-banned by the moderator. It was also the moment where I realized that the behaviors of players in CSCZ compared to CSGO are not just different, but the CSGO behavior is just ♥♥♥♥ing awful and counter-intuitive to team work. You have people competing fo points to get a higher rank quicker so that they can unlock more skins, which they can trade/sell for a hugely over-priced margin (some skins being worth more than CSGO itself).

I guess it just goes to show that if you're someone who actually wants to enjoy playing the game, CSCZ is the game for you. CSGO is just another "competitive" game with nothing more to it than popularity, driven mostly by the market economy the game has created for itself, suffering the same fate as TF2 and Dota 2.

I would recommend CSCZ over CSGO any day and not because it's what I used to play (since I have none, as I barely ever touched it for more than a few minutes back in the day), but because the balance, design, and overall aesthetic is just so much more satisfying and fun to experience compared to more modern online FPS games.

The classic 1.6 CS ... its just the best for me . Far better than CS source and still better than CS GO. Totally worth giving it a try. Still lots of people play this version of CS . All the community ... all the mods and free skins . all the game modes (zombie , laser , classic, prison etc) Its just the best out of all CS games + you get the ability to play with bots which is sometimes nice , when you have no internet connection

I played a long time ago with this game. Then and now is good. Classic game.
The story is good and not short game so you have to play with this game if you want to see end of the game.
The game can be funny because somewhere you can joker-player with bots.

Synopsis:

With its extensive Tour of Duty campaign, a near-limitless number of skirmish modes, updates and new content for Counter-Strike's award-winning multiplayer game play, plus over 12 bonus single player missions, Counter-Strike: Condition Zero is a tremendous offering of single and multiplayer content.

My thoughts regarding Condition Zero are pretty much Identical to the original CS 1.6. This is basically due to both games sharing the same engine, with Condition Zero being different only in the texturing and meshing department. With CS 1.6 showing its age, Condition Zero might be a worth a squirt if your feeling nostalgic.

Basically once the game Is bought you have to two installation options, Counter Strike Condition Zero and Counter Strike Condition Zero: Deleted Scenes.

Counter Strike Condition Zero:

This is essentially the CS 1.6 variant of the game which allows for traditional CS 1.6 style online gameplay and a somewhat enjoyable mini campaign which spans across most of the original maps, where objectives are the same as multiplayer however you can build a team for each map with bots of varying skills with more powerful bots costing more resource which you will unlock as you complete the maps. This single player should be avoided since it offers no real value and you are much better off playing on servers with real players.


Counter Strike Condition Zero Deleted Scenes:

This installation covers the actual single player campaign for Condition Zero. Each theater consists of you playing as a different counter terrorist unit:

GIGN, GSG-9, SEAL Team 6, SAS and Spetsnaz

You in turn fight againest a variety of different terrorist factions:

Arctic Avengers, Elite Crew, Guerilla Warfare, Phoenix Connexion and Midwest Militia.

I rather enjoyed the single player campaign since it deployed a large variety of maps and global locations ranging from fetid jungles to war ravaged cities. Most missions have a pre deployment briefing but these just offer simple intel and not much else. Most missions range from hostage rescue, bomb disarmament to assassinations. In most respects the campaign is somewhat reminiscent to Call of Duty MW which often puts you in the boots of a different soldier serving under a different army.

In conclusion CS CZ is worth your time if you are a hardcore C.S 1.6 fan like myself. It is pretty much HD 1.6 with a enjoyable single player campaign.

I like the game a lot. There is a Singleplayer campaign which I have passed in 2.5h.

I will do some pros and cons for the game

PROS
-The game comes with another game called Counter-Strike: Condition Zero Deleted Scenes
-CS:CZDS has only Singleplayer which is very intriguing to pass and play it, it has total of 19 missions and are very well made
-And I have liked it of course!
-The game has better graphics than Counter-Strike
-The game is fun to play even with bots
-Developers haven't forgot about this game, the games does not need any updates or patches
-Community is strong, so much players on 2500+ dedicated servers
-The game is cheap
-The Singleplayer Introduces you to all of the maps that are in Counter-Strike: Condition Zero, and introduces it very well
-The Multiplayer servers are defended with VAC so there are little to no hackers in this game

CONS
-I didn't like some of the Challenges because I have killed terrorists too fast and couldn't save the Hostages so I had to repeat it four to five times
-The graphics for player models have changed a little bit but they are still... I don't know how to describe it

I recommend this game! I rate it 9/10. Would kill five terrorists in row with M249 again
Thanks to Medavelvan for gifting me this game

If you are looking for a hard freaking core trainer to getting better at other counter strikes, here is where you should start. You will start out with bots that are super easy, but as you progress and get to the levels on hard difficulty they will be so freaking hard. I have only pumped about a dozen hours into this and it has DEFINANTLY helped me with my accuracy and problem solving skills on global offensive. This counter strike is considered to be the worse, but I can tell you it is FAR from that. I would reccomend getting this game for training to be better on other CS games, or to just have and extremelly fun and VERY challenging single player experience. This game is a must buy for PC gamers. Make sure to tweek the setting so even people with the crappiest PC's can play it at a rock solid 60 frames per second. Trust me, worth the buy.
