    This is great if you want to experience the greatness of Counter Strike, but don't have a PC suitable for gaming. Even if you don't have Xbox Live, the bots are still great to play against, lots of people play Timesplitters against bots and can still have fun. The bots are better than most players on Expert difficulty, and about as good as an average player on Professional.

But if you have a decent PC, you really should get Counter Strike: Source, as it is superior, but if you are a Counter Strike fanatic, it might be worth getting it for the Xbox exclusive maps. Expand

    Very excellent game came through and is probably the most versitile game ever, lets the gamers affect everything from levels to the very mods every player plays on. Defiently not your average game. Gameplay is awesome, brings the meaning of 'team' to use. You can go rogue,b ut dont expect to get very far.

    This is better than any other xbox live game for Xbox. it isn't as fun playing with the cpu due to lack of AI intellegance. The PC version is more fun with better game options like gravity control but, definitely a great game deserving a 9.0

    This is the game. this is what xbox is about. of course it sucks on one player mode IT'S A MULTIPLAYER GAME what good is it on one player when you don't know how truly good you are until you go LIVE. that's why some games say LIVE ENABLED.

    Counter Strike has a simple concept just go kill everyone or simply prevent or put the bomb . The gameplay is simple much similar like halo(no aim assist ) . The maps are well designed,diversity of weapons . Valve you are genius !

    As someone who only plays against bots anyway, this is a great way to play Counter-Strike and even though the fps and graphics were dumbed down from the PC version (as expected) it still plays like a dream! Definitely one of the best first person shooters on the original Xbox! You owe it to yourselves to pick this one up!

  1. 7 / 7 / 8 / 8 - 30 silver [Vol 798; 2 Apr 2004]
  2. Thankfully, the conversion from keyboard and mouse to pad has been made with rare judgement - movement is smooth and aiming is easy. The classic gameplay has made the transition too, and is as rewarding as ever. [Jan 2004, p.110]
  3. An official disappointment on Xbox, yet the game's undying popularity defies critical analysis. [Mar 2004, p.78]
