Counter-Strike: The legendary FPS game that over graced the computers

Hands down to those people who appreciated Counter-strike for it is one of the world’s greatest game during the 90's. I really admire how the inventor of this game was able to develop this kind of realistic and true-to-life gaming. I was thinking maybe he used to be some sort of a soldier because if not, how would this even cross his mind. It's very fantastic. Why did he choose to put Terrorist & Counter-Terrorist (Police/Army) why not just any other contradicting individuals? With these, he was able to make it pragmatic not just only the characters but also the entire gameplay. You can hear gun shots, how heavy the sound of the gun is, you can hear its reload, the bomb ticking and the explosion of the grenade. Whenever you control it you will see recoils when you're firing. That's very exciting right? 90% of young men during that era didn't miss how Counter-strike conquered the minutes of the world. Every man developed their strategic skills, their accuracy in playing and most of all their chemistry in team-playing.


  • Has new improved visual graphics and gameplay
  • Engaging realistic feelings while playing
  • Can play multiplayer, bots(AI) & through online


  • Playing this game associates violence

Counter-Strike is a very addictive multiplayer first-person shooting game until this day. This game started as a mod for popular Valve game which is Half-Life. Counter-Strike 1.6 version is one of the best versions of Counter-Strike, where you will be enabled to play online with your friends and other players around the globe. Unlike the most FPS games today, Counter-Strike 1.6 does not have a story to follow. You only have to join one from two teams which is the counter-terrorists and the terrorists. The guns that are available in this version are well-balanced to ensure all the players always have sufficient money to have a fair lethal weapon. When it comes to graphics it is very decent. It is the same in every way with the Half-Life game. But when it comes to animation, this game is old-fashioned, but I don’t really care about that, I still love to play this game. All in all, Counter-Strike series is a very basic game that can develop your aiming skills and reactions in gaming.


  • The sound effect is more realistic
  • You can run it even in a low spec Computer


  • The animation is a bit old-fashioned



A Timeless Game That Remains One of the Greatest In Its Category

For me, Counter-Strike is the most excellent FPS game that I ever played. With this version, things got even more interesting and exciting. I like that you can now play via online and engage with other players all over the world, and of course LAN is still working. In my opinion, the graphics and sounds are done nicely. The gameplay is just awesome, even though this game was released number of years ago, I still find it very appealing and there is no dull moment. Moreover, I find this game a mix of individual skill and teamwork and if you have that, you will have a higher chance of winning every match, plus this game does not have advantages. It all depends in your ability and cooperation with others. All in all, Counter-Strike 1.6 is a classic FPS game with full of intense action and an endless battle between terrorist and counter-terrorist. This game is certainly a must have.


  • Online mode is now available
  • Graphics and sounds are nicely done


  • Some lagging issue in online mode

Counter-Strike is a first-person online shooting adventure, pretty popular for being one of the first Half-Life mod and the beginning of the e-sports. Its tactical disposal clearly differentiates this title from other classic FPS titles since you are requested to play as a team and not individually. Choose between terrorists and counter-terrorists factions and be ready to join the warfare. Counter-Strike is not back to the basics, it is the basics itself. The style is the battle between two different teams, each one with their objectives depending on the available maps. It is divided by rounds, taking in mind that if players die, they won’t respawn until the round is over. At the beginning of each round you will be granted a couple of seconds for buying weapons and equipment with the money you earn after each round by surviving or killing enemies among other events. You can only get free the gun with which you respawn at the beginning of each round.

One of the most interesting things about this title is that it depends only in your own skills. There are no advantages like in Call of Duty series, you will need to aim correctly, know the recoil of your gun and shoot your enemies to death. It is designed for enthusiast gamers. Either online or offline, Counter-Strike will test your gamer soul.

As a title focused more on its gameplay, the interface is pretty simple, without advanced options or movements such as incredible jumps or superpowers. Keeping it simple is the best way for creating this long-life shooting game. There are freeware maps that add more locations for its different modes, including team deathmatch among other ways of playing created by fans. This immortal title just gives its users what they want: simple action and skillful gameplay. Free new elements are also available to download in sites created by its community.

Teams and gameplay

This team-based title has some differences between the terrorist and the counter-terrorist factions. First of all, the available skins are different depending on the team, with elite agents’ aspects for CTs such as Seals or SAS, or terrorist’s aspects such as Elite Crew or Guerrilla Warfare. Besides these details, the weapons for each team are also different. For example, the gun Five-Seven was available for both teams until now, in the last update only Counter-Terrorists can buy this weapon. The sniper rifle AWP can be purchased by both teams, an excellent option for shooting your opponents but it requires some skills for using it.

Although it is a multiplayer online game, you can play it offline if you install an additional element for creating bots for practicing and getting used to new maps or modes. Each scenario has its own objectives. In hostages maps you must rescue the scientists along with your teammates if you play as a CT. In order to do that you must avoid wildly strategic movements; engage the realistic tactics with an ally and perform incredibly synchronized strategies for succeeding. There are more additional maps such as the defuse bomb objective or the save the VIP, each one with their own fans and tactics.
