Description official descriptions

The Steam and Xbox releases of Counter-Strike are commercial standalone versions of the game, updated with a newer GoldSrc engine build. However, they omit the extra modifications which were available in the Half-Life: Counter-Strike retail releases that are not Counter-Strike itself.

The Linux and Macintosh PC versions were never available separately. When they were released, Counter-Strike could only be bought as a compilation pack containing both Counter-Strike: Condition Zero and the original Counter-Strike. However, existing players who only owned Counter-Strike thus received it for the additional platforms for free, even if they did not own the original Counter-Strike: Condition Zero or never bought the compilation pack.

Cool game, but the same as the pc

The Good
Counter strike is awesome. I started playing this game on the PC during my sophomore year of college. It was version 1.5 starting with the 1.6 beta. The awesome thing about the game is that it’s so easy to play. You get to use realistic weapons and you have a lot of fun playing the game.

Right now I’m playing the Source version (not that much though), and it gets better with each iteration of the game.

The Bad
The main problem with the xbox version is that there are a lot of “sore losers.” By this I mean every time a server admin didn’t like his score, he would reset the game to reset the scores until he liked his own score. Also, whenever a player gets too good, they are branded as “cheaters” and banned/kicked right away for no reason. Once I was 22-0, and I got banned from a server after the admin restarted the game like 5 times.

The Bottom Line
I recommend this game for anyone who likes fps and online game play. Although I don’t really like fps, this is one exception since the game is so good.
