A slightly upgraded version of CS1.6, but CSS & CSGO are better

It added bots, which was nice if you couldn't play online (which was me for quite a while). Some new guns, new maps, slightly better graphics. However, once Source came out, this was viewed as obsolete.

It's still pretty fun. It has a lot of new maps that hadn't been ported over to CSS last I checked.

It also has a single player campaign, which is kind of fun to play on but there are honestly better single player FPS campaigns out there. Definitely pick up the valve pack, all of these games are awesome.

Could have been much more

When they developed this game it seemed like they couldn't decide whether or not they wanted to make a good single player/co-op experience or an actually competitive death-match game with good gun mechanics. The game design remains true to the original, Counter-Strike 1.6, but the artwork and gun-play held it back. You'll notice upon playing that the M4 Carbine looks a lot more cartoony and so do the models of the players - it is as if they were afraid of sharp edges in the artwork department. It felt like you were shooting a nerf gun half the time. However, they did implement fun new mechanics that weren't previously seen - and interesting new maps as well. This is more like an expansion and what seemed like a test of what they could get away with. If you want to see Counter-Strike with liberties taken in the design process - or you'd like a pleasant single player experience in the same universe, this is the game for you.

A flawed successor...but still a great game.

Many were hoping that this game would be the proper sequel to the first CS game. It came up short, but what it lacks in quality, it makes up for in quantity. And there is a lot of quantity in this game.

Graphics:

The game looks marginally better than the original, with the sprites having been updated to look more realistic.

8/10

Sound: The sound is also more marginally better than the original with better uncompressed sounds.

8/10

Gameplay:

The gameplay is almost identical to the original. WHICH IS A VERY GOOD THING!

9/10

Lifespan:

The game has online matches, and offline campaign and a story based deleted scenes which isn't too bad at all.

10/10

Nice team FPS

This FPS is nice to have fun with your friends. There are a lot of maps, some funs (a swimming pool, a ranch...) and some competitiveness (like de_dust2, the most famous one). There are different goals, like planting a bomb, taking down the entire enemy team...

The solo is also fun, the bots (non-player characters controlled by your computer) will talk to you and cooperate to take down enemies and reach the goals.

You can have fun doing 1vs10 bots for example, and challenges like that ! Don't forget to play online, there is a huge community playing this game, creating maps and models for characters and weapons.

With this much possibilities, fun never ends !
