Was it worth it?

Summary: So, we were first told about Counter-Strike: Condition Zero back in 2000, when Counter-Strike was still a GOOD multiplayer gamer, not ridden with as many hackers, and definitely not flooded with annoying high-pitched kids telling eachother off through the voice chat feature. As you would expect from my anger witnessed in the above paragraph, I stopped playing the game. I waited and waited to get CS:CZ, the messiah of the Counter-Strike title.
Summary: Don't bother buying this game if you have the original CS. It's the same thing with slightly better graphics. With all the hype and delays it should have been better. For Shame Sierra... For Shame. Wait for the price to drop to $10... Then consider it.
Summary: I've was waiting almost two years to play this game and when it finally came out, I bought it! The biggest gaming mistake of my life. I have played Counter-Strike for over two years and its great. Condition Zero is no more then CS version 1.6. The graphics are almost the same, the new weapons can't be used online or on the single player mode that it has.
Summary: Look: I LIKE CS. I hadn't played it in awhile, and I heard that they were coming out with a single player version. "Awesome!" I said-- imagining a game featuring the action and mechanics of CS with the in-depth missions of a Rainbow Six. That's the way it was pitched to me, at least, before it bounced around several companies. So today, I see CS CZ in a store for the first time (which I now chalk up to my ignorance; not its launch). I buy it . .
Summary: I got CS: CZ with some degree of trepidation because I had the sneaking suspicion that it would really suck. Guess what, it does. There are not enough changes to the game to warrant paying $40 bucks for a repackaging of the multiplayer game that has been out for a long time. Very few new additions to the game, the new textures look worse than the old textures! Most of the levels are reused levels from the original multiplayer game.
Summary: I've been waiting years for Condition Zero(CZ) to come out but now that it's out, it's to little to late. CZ is extremely dissapointing for a hard core CS veteran like myself. The meat of CS has and always will be multiplayer and CZ adds nothing new other than updated graphics. The singleplayer aspect of CZ is mediocre compared to games like Call of Duty and Far Cry.
Summary: After having read the rave reviews for this product, I looked forward to playing the game. I was quickly disappointed and frustrated by the inane requirement to use Steam. I've played other games online that manage to connect with no difficulty whatsoever and have no impact on your ability to play off-line. I managed to play this game for a while, until my son decided to install Steam. Now my computer just locks up whenever the game is launched.
Just CS with bots - both of which are availible for free

Summary: This was very dissapointing. If you want to play CS, just download it (or get a friend to download it) from [...] . If you don't want to play online, download one of the hundreds of availible bot plug-ins. This isn't a game, it's an update. Worthless.
Summary: THE PRELUDE They smell of counterstike condtion zero wafted my olfactory cells many months ago. Excited I eagerly awaited the ever more so delayed release of this follow up. However much to the disappointement of many avid gamers, their monthly trips to there local gaming crack dealer led them to a further put back of the release date. Today the release is still awaited, eagerly by some but definitely not by me.
