Now with that out of the way, I'd assume you are looking at this page because you are interested in Counter Strike: Source. Good choice. There is a reason CS:S is the number one online game in the world. The game is amazing......it's that simple.
The game is set up around the premise of Terrorists vs. Counter-Terrorists. When you first join a server you choose which side you want to be on, the main difference being the weapons you will have access to. During the game each team has a different goal. One some levels the Terrorists have to plant a bomb while the Counter-Terrorists try to stop them. On other levels the Counter-Terrorists try to rescue some hostages while the Terrorists try to stop them. During each round you get 1 life. That's it! This means if you die you have to sit around and wait until the round is over. It's not a big deal though, the levels are generally small and well designed, and rounds don't usually last very long. Some of the positives of this system are that it discourages "Rambo" type play where people will just run around with guns blazing, of course some people still do that, but most people are more concerned about being careful with their life.
The graphics in this game are amazing! All the particle, smoke and water effects are extremely well done. There is a reason the Source graphics engine is so popular and it shows in this game.Read more ›
I'm saying that you're bad at video games or FPSs (first person shooters), but you aren't going to be used to the way this game plays. Everyone else playing is going to already have memorized each map, how each gun fires, and they're going to know where you are. So while you're just trying to figure out how to use your flashlight properly you're also being hunted down. This can annoy and deter many people from enjoying this game. When you die twenty times without killing a single person, it can be irritating.
Luckily, CS:S has two things that can save you. One: you can create your own server and add a bunch of bots (computer controlled players) and set them to different difficulties and practice with them. This will start to get you used to how other players play, and you will get to know some of the maps and guns. Two: There are literally tens of thousands of servers out there and many of them are there for new players. So instead of going to clan servers you can go to newbie servers and just have some fun.
Overall, the game engine for this game is incredible. In my opinion it's the best FPS engine out there. The only problem are some of the people playing it with you. My advice is to find a static server that has people that have the same mindset about the game as you do (Relaxed-Serious) and just enjoy. If someone gets angry at you for not playing well, or playing too well then just leave and find another server. You'll enjoy the game much more that way.
Before any quick conclusions are made about the game, players should know that it is actually still in development. The game is frequently updated by Valve with content additions and enhancements and maps that have not yet been ported to the Source engine yet. However, players will be happy to know that the major maps such as Dust2, Aztec, Office, and many others have already been ported to the new game. Only the least popular such as Siege have not yet been added to the game as of August of 2006.Read more ›
