Counter-Strike User Reviews

8.8

Perfect mix of arcade style and realism

The good:

- simple, yet addictive
- countless number of strategies
- scrimming with 4 other friends

The bad:

-limitations of the HL1 engine
-the multiplayer scene is often viewed as pretty immature (just read some of the gotfrag forums)

Summary:

This is the true definition of gameplay over flashy graphics. Many awesome looking games have come out over the years, but CS has outlasted all of them and it came out in 1999(i think). Even with its simple looking graphics compared to today's standards, this is one of the best online shooters ever. If you want, you can even join leagues with your clan such as CAL or UGS. Scrims are incredibly enjoyable and will keep you playing for a good while.

Mutliplayer At Its Best

The good:

The simplicity. The variety of maps. The weapons.

The bad:

Cheaters. The graphics are kinda outdated.

Summary:

If you haven't heard about Counter-Strike, you've probably been in outer-space. Counter-Strike is a very, very, very popular mod of the award winning PC game, Half-Life. It's multiplayer only, but that doesn't take away any of the fun factor. There's two sides to every battle. Counter-Terrorists do numerous things, like rescue hostages, defuse bombs, etc. Terrorists are the opposing force, and try to screw up life for everybody. The selection of weapons are amazing. The only thing you have to watch out for are cheaters! And, since this game came out in 1999, the graphics are a little bit ou...

Half-Life : Counter-Strike

The good:

So popular, so great, lovely multiplayer on the net and on LAN.

The bad:

Cheaters! those *******!

Summary:

I love this game. I found it through a club in my school, a games club run by the head of D.T. Who now can't do it because he got promoted. Anyway this game is great for playing with friends if you have a couple of PCs or laptops. This game is so popular it is loved around the world. If you are thoinking of buying Half-Life get a pack with Half-Life, Counter-Strike, Opposing force and blue shift they are all great games. There are bots that you can download my opinion is Pod Bots because you can download waypoints for maps. You can download and maps for Counter-Strike and waypoints for the...

Great game, ruined by cheaters

The good:

great gameplay (apart from lag if u av a slow connection)
can keep you on all night
its free if you have Half Life
Quite easy to join a clan and make friends
SO FUN

The bad:

slightly dated graphics
cheaters and hacking scum

Summary:

I docked it 0.1 mark simply because of the volume of cheaters in virtually all of the servers. But it isnt the games fault as it is quite unstoppable. Howver hours of fun can be had in the most popular online game in the world. You can download the game off of steam if you already have half life, this makes it very easy to get. the graphics are dated but show me a game using a 1998 engine that looks better and is still this poular??? A good internet connection is needed nowadays as 56k below seems to lag endlessly. the maps are great to play on and the action gets ur heart a pumpin'

Being realistic & unrealistic nearly all the time, at the same time, helps make CS as addictive as Ginger Snaps.

The good:

You might find CS so addictive, you might wanna spend the rest of your mortal days challenging other hopefulls. Which, in this case is better than good.

Being so old now, you'd expect players to be tired of the game being tired, but it isn't.

The sound is great too, playing with headphones, and volume at full blast, may make your ears pop. The gunfire, the moans and groans of the dead, and general water-splashing and ladder tapping is still impressive for a 5-6 year old modification.

Oh yeah, the thousands of servers are just phenomanal, really.

The bad:

The graphics are sub-par, but what do you expect for an old MOD? You can't have it all. This is the Space Invaders of modificitions.
Despite that, the guns are modelled nicely, but the blood looks like big chunks of frozen Tomato Ketchup flying through the air...

Another shame is, there are constantly new updates, which, with a 56k modem, (or below) these will be a nightmare to download. But, you can get them off your local PC magazine; "That'll be £6 please." Sheesh.

Aah, Hackers! Cheaters! If you are expecting to have a great game Online, be sure to choose a decent server, please, don't blame me. Every review here should say that, so come on, all of us against you, believe the synpes.

Summary:

The gamplay is so old-fashioned, to this day it seems rather comical, but it's not a game for retro-nostilga freaks.

Every Tuesday after School finishes, me and my chums go to our School's little Games Club, to shoot eachother other LAN, which is the best way.
(We also have a shop downtown called Ego, where we pay-to-play, most Saturdays..Hey, that rhymes!)

As cheap as a Chinese Leather Jacket, this is a must if you have a High-Connection Speed, and have the latest version.

See what I did there?

7.0

Counter Strike

The good:

The names of the guns are what they should be. It is also very addictive. pwning people in the face gives me the join i need to make it through the day especially when it is a noob. like all of the tards that posted reviews!

The bad:

The damage that the guns do. I mean seriously i dont know one person that can take 9 bullets. I mena the TMP, you firea whole clip into someone and 30 bullets just about rounds up to 1 point of damage!

Summary:

First off just shut the hell up all of you! My God you know nothing! Who cares about graphics, it is game play that matters not the graphic detail. If you complain about the graphics of any game you should be shot and killed or at least never allowed to play another computer. For that matter another game in your life! If you want ot play a game with good graphics wait for Half-Life 2 to come out or Counter Strike 2, wait why do i even say that you will probly complain about those too.
