Counter-Strike: Source


$20.00 Released September, 2004

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Never gets boring despite simple game mechanics. Online play scales upwards into infinity. Doesn't require the latest cutting edge computer.

The Cons:Lots of waiting between rounds if you die early. Limited weapon type. No single player - online multilayer only (requires internet connection).

Released in August of 2004, Counter-Strike: Source is a remake of the orginal Counter-Strike 1.6 based on the new source engine produced for Half-Life 2. Featuring improved graphics, physics, and hitbox accuracy (all thanks to the improved engine)  the game is essentially the exact same, down to the official maps.
