Conclusion: This game was a game I have always loved ever since it game out. The game is a great FPS that was originaly on the computer, which is now on the Xbox. If you are a fan of CS on the computer, and have not yet bought Counter-Strike for the Xbox, I would highly recommend you do so. It does have some of the maps from the PC but they are enhanced and altered a small bit.
Conclusion: Back on the PC, Counter-Strike was an instant classic. The Xbox version just doesn't quite fit in with the rest. The Xbox version doesn't have multiplayer offline(which really bites since I don't own Xbox Live to play multiplayer). On the other hand, Counter-Strike is just plain boring but not as boring as it looks. The buy menu is easy to control, the team play is solid, and the environments are just perfect.
Conclusion: this is a really great game, but i would only recommend it if you have xbox live, otherwise going against the bots gets boring real fast. i defintely liked the pc version a whole lot better because on computer there is thousands and thousands of maps. on pc it also had a thing called sprays, which are like avatars that you can spray anywhere on the map, which were cool cause you can put them on people you just owned.
Excerpt: this game is a good game i would say u dont have to be a fan off the pc one's as i have not played them before . if u dont have xbox live dont get this game if u dont have it u can just play way bot's its not good but if u have xbox live its a must have it has new map's good game play and a good looking game but they are better u can get it from games www.game.uk.com and if u dont like it take it back u have 10 days on it anyway
Summary: I have to say that after reading the other reviews, many people seem to have forgotten that the original PC version was also an online-only multiplayer experience. This game was only ever intended for X-Box Live, and I think it succeeds. It's quite a faithful reproduction of the PC version with improved character animation, additional maps (based on the most up-to-date mods available from 2002) and weapons.
Summary: Intro This is the most addictive game I have ever played. The reason is X-Box Live. But, I am disappointed about the SP mode, it is actually boring in my opinion playing against bots, but when playing against humans on live it is extremely fun. The games graphics stink. Really, the graphics were no improvement from the popular PC version. There are some new levels from the PC version, but they also left out a few (hopefully those will be downloadable through X-Box Live).
This ain't a review, but its a crucial bit of info

Summary: I recently bought this game, and although at the start i very seriously enjoyed it, i very soon discarded it, bored. The reason you ask? its a multiplayer game, pure and simple. If you dont have xbox live and can't be arsed to lug your xbox round to a mates house for a system link, dont buy this. The only single player mode there is is basically practise- theres no story, structured game with levels or incentive to continue.
Conclusion: En conclusión, Counter Strike no es un juego gráficamente sobresaliente, y pese a sus contras es BRUTALMENTE adictivo. Si bien no posee la opción para que jueguen dos personas -cosa que en ocasiones pesa- salvo con interconexión, es muy raro que se extrañe la presencia humana. No obstante, el frijol en el arroz es la pobre inteligencia artificial de los personajes, especialmente cuando son de nuestro equipo y cuando ya nos han eliminado de la ronda.
Pros: Sistema de juego, Efectos de sonido, Opciones en línea, Opciones de juego, Música, Variedad de mapas, Funciona sin problemas en el Xbox 360
Cons: No pueden jugar dos personas, a menos que sea por interconexión, Gráficos pobres que no explotan en lo absoluto el potencial de la consola, Falta de misiones, dado el tipo arcadia como única opción de juego, A menudo, la pobre inteligencia artificial de los personajes cobra protagonismo; especialmente cuando ya nos han matado en la ronda.
