4.0 out of 5 stars CounterStrike Worth the Buy? Sure, but only.... December 20, 2003
Format:Video Game
Counterstrike has to be one of the most famous online first person shooters, if not, the most famous online game. Most computer junkies have played it and become addicted the moment they get thier first "frag." With all that said, Valve, the developer of Counterstrike, has just been released for the XBox with all the same aspects and you can play online using XBox LIVE. But does it live up to it's PC version?
The graphics virtually have no improvement from the PC version. Which is a bad thing because the graphics are not impressive at all, but to the contrary, the level designs are. Some are vast, some are small, but all of them are very well designed. Each level you play matches in has many areas to hide and get cover from enemy fire.
The sounds of gunfire, explosions, footsteps, and the voices are all very well done. Counterstrike also supports the custom soundtrack, which is very cool. Imagine fragging all your friends online while jamming to your favorite rock or rap group. If you have the music CD, you can listen to it while playing Counterstrike.
The gameplay is where Counterstrike shines. It's pure pulse pounding action playing it online. When I first played it using XBox LIVE, the bullets were flying, the bodies were piling up, the people were yelling, and I was in heaven.
The only problem I have with Counterstrike is that there is no multiplayer. For the love of God, why is there no split-screen multiplayer mode? Did Valve feel like making us video game junkies angry? Or is Valve trying to make us subscribe to XBox LIVE to have some multiplayer fun? Whatever the case, this game doesn't feel complete without split-screen multiplayer mode.
So if you dont have XBox LIVE and don't plan on subscribing anytime soon, don't bother with Counterstrike.

4.0 out of 5 stars Let the shooting begin! December 14, 2003
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
This is a great first-person-shooter, but there a few things that prevent it from getting a perfect score.
You think that with all the cons that this game will
suck, but you are wrong. The pros will make you
overlook its flaws.
+pistols, machine guns, sniper rifles, riot shield
+blood splashes when you're hit
+realistic recoil on weapons
+great map designs/layouts
+you can spectate the match after you die
+you can spectate from either third person or first person
+easy to learn controls and tutorial
+fun to rescue hostages or disarm bombs
+amazing A.I.
+bullets pierce doors, walls, boxes

-graphics are dull and drab looking
-animation is cheap and unrealistic
-sound effects of gunfire sound crappy
-grenade explosions lack kill power
-bulletproof vests don't protect you well
-you die really fast when shot
-no split screen gameplay!

Thankfully you do not need XBOX live to fully enjoy
Counter-Strike. The most impressive element in this
game are the BOTS! The A.I. in this game act almost human.
You'll see bots doing numerous things that human players do in real life such as; camping, searching for targets, jumping like fools, switching to knife to run faster, watching each other's backs, strafe-shoot-hide, trying to flank you, sniping, tossing grenades, escorting hostages to safety, attack you in groups, disobey orders and more! If you like first-person-shooters, you'll love this game!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Game, highly addictive, wonderful port February 8, 2004
Format:Video Game
I was blown away that Counter-Strike for the Xbox is just as fun and playable as it's PC cousin. There are some cons that will keep PC snobs away, but there are some serious benefits, lots of them. Newcomers should definitely check this game out, CS is the most popular online action game for 3 years straight because it is superbly balanced and highly addictive fun, faster than Rainbow Six but not out-of-control like Unreal Championship, CS actually rewards teamwork in lots of subtle ways. However, I will warn you - don't expect to see the magic until you've been playing on Live for a day or two. You NEED Live to get anything out of this game.
The most important thing- Microsoft nailed the controls exactly right. It feels totally natural and fits perfectly with the needs of this game. I never once felt frustrated with the controls or felt like I was "losing" something from the console port, if you know what I mean. Sometimes the control limitations of console ports total change the way you play the game, but not in this case. Bravo. Other "cons" of not playing on a PC actually serve to equal the playing field for everyone. The low resolution might give many PC players a headache, but it gives scopes an actual purpose now. On the PC I had my resolution cranked so high I never used a scope. The controls mean that no one can whip 180 degrees and get a head shot on you in 1/10th of a second, something I've seen many many times before. Protecting your flanks is more important. The only thing I really miss is being able to play any map I want, especially some of the older favorites like Assault. The game does comes with 20 maps, though, 2 unlockable with Live, including the awesome "Office".
