Best multiplayer game
7 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, to me this is better then World of Warcraft, Halo 2, or any other game for the most part. The game is really just about the multiplayer so if you like good single player games go play both Half-Life's for that. This game has been popular for a long time for many reasons. The first being the mod community who help better the replay value. Second it's hard to perfect the game since their are so many damn good people online. Lastly the gameplay itself is addictive and once it pulls you in, it won'r let go.

Gameplay: Counter-Strike may at first appear to be just like a lot of other FPS's, boring and generic. Whoever would think that after playing the game for a little while would have to be on drugs to think that. The game has you choose to be a Terrorist or Counter Terrorist. The best thing of each side is both sides have their own set of objectives depending on the map you are playing. The Terrorists on many maps have to plant a bomb and defend it from the Counter Terrorists who try and disarm the bomb. While this may sound simple there is a lot of strategy to this especially if you have only a few members on whatever side your on. The shooting in the game is great as well as you get like twenty weapons on each side which include pistols, machine gun, sniper rifles, ak-47, silencer, dual pistols, and many other great weapons. The firefights in the game are intense and when playing things get very suspenseful since you can get sniped from far away and not even see it coming.

Graphics: They are good for the time and were updated by the great people at Valve. Yet, many new CS's came out, but this version still looks good and can hold its own against many other FPS's right now on the market.

Overall: 5/5
