The 90's was a great time for first-person shooters. Games like Doom, Goldeneye, and Half-Life expanded the genre ten-fold, and you don't need a historian to tell you that. If anything, the first thing you'll notice about this game is the pacing of this game. Consider it a mix of Half-Life and Rainbow Six. Games played on different maps are split up into rounds. Each round, the goal is to simply kill the other team. Unlike other games, when you die, you do not come back until the next round begins. Depending on the map, rounds can last anywhere from fifteen seconds to a minute or two. This “you die, you're out” feature is actually hard to swallow and this game could use a few respawn functions here and there, but it just builds up the strategic value of the game and asking yourself “What is my life worth this round?” There's also a few additional objectives that replace killing the other team. The money system was something fairly new in the genre. Each time your team wins or does something good, you get money. At the beginning of the round, you can purchase from a wide variety of weapons and items, such as pistols, shotguns, assault rifles, sniper rifles, body armor, and grenades. Counter-Strike is one of those shooters that does everything right. It's fun to play with friends and is insurmountably better than it's Source brother and it's Half-Life parent.
Its Counter-Strike, what else can i say?
Aside from having fairly unbalanced AS maps and CS maps, CS 1.6 will always be better than CS:S. Despite lacking in visuals, CS 1.6 makes up by having smoother game play, more up-beat/perky levels, and in general, more levels.
Its very balanced, its very fun, and still doing okay in 2011, despite being over 10 years old.
