Counter-Strike is a modification (MOD) to the excellent game, Half-Life. It modifies the multiplayer aspects of Half-Life to bring to it a more team-oriented gameplay. Counter-Strike provides the player with an experience that a trained counter-terrorist unit or terrorist unit experiences.
The MOD is team-based featuring one team playing the role of the terrorist and the other team playing the role of the counter-terrorist. Each side has access to different guns and equipment, as well as different abilities. Maps have different goals such as: hostage rescue, assassination, bomb defusion, Terrorist escape, etc.

Weapons include the usual assortment of pistols, shotguns, assault rifles, sniper rifles, grenades, demolition devices. Each side has access to a different subset of weapons so for example only the counter-terrorist can use the M4A1, and only the terrorists can use the AK-47.

We are confident that we've created a MOD quite unlike any other. We hope you will be immersed in the frightening and intense world of Counter-Terrorism.

Quick tip for (prolly CoD) people who don't understand how a simple concept of CS can be one heck ofa fun time.First off is that you have to pick the right guns for you because every player has a different style,second is you have different strategies.One simple plant the bomb can be one heck of a battle.

Overrated, overhyped mod.

You do the same **** every other game:

Bomb Planting/Defusal maps:
Terrorist - Kill Team and/or plant bomb
CT's: Kill Team and/or defuse bomb

Hostage map:
Terrorists: Kill opposing team, defend hostages from CT's?
CT's: Same as terrorists, except rescue hostages.

Any other default mode I'm sure is boring as hell.

Over rated how ? it was praised for it's original gameplay and feel. The mod became so popular because people actually enjoyed the game. It was a mod of it's kind back in the day. How about you actually stop trolling and get a life ?

I'm playing it again just like way back 2001 but this time using a nice Metamod plug-in to make it run like a classic TDM or FFA server (CSDM plgin) and using 4 different types of updated bots for it at the same time hehe!!! Really don't enjoy playing CS online with all those darn human players hahahhaa!!!

Counter-Strike is my all time favorite mod. The impact it had and still has on todays multiplayer games remains remarkable. I've never experienced the time before 1.6 but I bet it was great! I know there are a lot of people who want to go back in time to 19 Juli 1999 when it first came out til steam took over. Who would have imagined that a modification on a game would be the most played multiplayer game in the future. A new Counter-Strike is coming in April 2012 but I don't think any future made…
