Classic multiplayer game that will never die.

Furrek | July 7, 2014 | See all Furrek's reviews »

This game was played everywhere, by everyone. Like, if you are a gamer, and you like multiplayer games, there is no way that you have never played Counter Strike. It's suprising simply game, but everything depend on two things: First one - your own skill. This was my probably first game, and Counter Strike is probably one of not many games where skill counts not your wallet, where individual skill of every player is so important. Another thing is teamwork. It's team versus team game. You can play 6vs6, or even 12vs12, depend on server that you are playing one. Sure, you can kill everyone in enemy's team, but it will require very high skill. You can't go wrong with Counter Strike. It's just a perfect online game. If you will get bored (in which I doubt), there are few interesting mods. You don't need to trust my, or other gamers, reviews. It's a Valve game. They know how to make great games.

Shooter you won't forget

CARLEST | June 28, 2014 | See all CARLEST's reviews »

This is probably the most known game ever, the Counter-Strike. It is really awesome how a mod got so famous. This game has everything: shooting, knives, grenades and players. There are different modes on servers so you can play classic shooter, try time surf and play deathrun, where you have to run to the terrorist and kill him, which is pretty hard. It's nice how mod gets modded. People have added tons of different things to Counter-Strike and made it really different from the original mod. There are only two sad things about this game: Pirated games and cheaters. Pirated games aren't so bad, as every game will get pirated once, but cheaters are really sad. With cheaters you can't play normally. Anyway, this is a really good game for any shooter fan.

A cheap way to experience competitive FPS at its best

mugaro | June 18, 2014 | See all mugaro's reviews »

Since it first came out in the late 90s, Counterstrike has come and changed the way competitive FPS is. Earning money through kills, hostage rescues & winning the round, buying better guns. It sounds like a "no duh" today, but CS really revolutionized multiplayer FPS back in the day. The sides are nearly symmetrical with the difference being availability of a few guns to buy, but you can always pick up a gun from an enemy.

This was the first game I saw use the flashbang, the riot shield, realistic sounds for things like the ak47 & magnum powered sniper rifle (awesome sound to hear by the way).

Get the valve pack, play this, CSS or CSGO. It's a great multiplayer game.

A classic FPS everyone plays

Chosedone | May 18, 2014 | See all Chosedone's reviews »

I think there isn't anyone who hasn't played CS is his life. This game is just a classic, a game that cannot be criticized for its graphics, sounds or physics engine because it doesn't matter. It began as a mod and converted into the most famous shooter game. You'll never get bored of this game; it's simple, addictive and competitive. With tons of community maps and gamemodes, every time is different. You don't have to worry about DLC, levels, achievements nor unlock weapons. It's all about skill, tactic, practice and team cooperation. You'll always have fun playing it... unless an enemy purchases a shield or an AWP, then you'll hate him for the rest of your life.

Still Alive

AkiMatti | May 6, 2014 | See all AkiMatti's reviews »

Counter-Strike is half as old as I am. Feels strange. People still play this game and some think none of the newer versions is as good.

The gun balance, the skill-based shooting, the classic maps and the classic opponents. This game is truly hardcore, not for casuals. I mean it. You will hit the skill ceiling long and hard if you try this game. This game is dominated by the young that have great reaction time and steady aim.

Prepare to lose a sniper fight to a desert eagle.
