  1. Half Life fans would love to know that there is also a Half Life 2 CD with exclusive footage. Let me say, *drool*.

    The problem is that neither the physics nor the graphics have aged particularly well; if you're looking for a next-gen FPS, this is not it. It is, however, a decent update to one of the best titles of yesterday. [Apr 2004, p.108]

    Underlying all the advances made in bot technology and the updated maps, Condition Zero is still fundamentally a five-year-old game...but this standalone package should satisfy both the Counter-Strike-curious and the broadband impaired. [Jan 2004, p.90]
  4. A slight update to an already classic game that doesn’t make you forget about the original.
  5. It's a strong package that suffers partly because we were promised so much in the first place, partly because so much of it is available online for free, and partly because the new stuff is exactly the sort of thing Valve would have released for free in times gone past.

    What was supposed to be a revelation, a next generation of sorts, has become instead a disappointing follow-up to a beloved game. [Mar 2004, p.68]
  7. Predictably poor. Proof that every gaming franchise has its limits.

    I loved this game, but the story mode can be boring sometimes. I'm glad I got it.

It is also one a revolution in this of the games online since the change of graph is very well-known between(among) the Condition Zero and the first Counter-Strike and its alone realism overcome by the Counter-Strike: Source. This game also can be played of a player by if you want to play the way history. Expand

    DO NOT judge this game by bots. Bots are simply for use for Ofline modes, not while on the Internet. This is absurd if you say the game is a DO NOT judge this game by bots. Bots are simply for use for Ofline modes, not while on the Internet. This is absurd if you say the game is a 4 or lower just because of the bots. This game has excellent skins, more maps, and better sounds, and ALOT more stuff that does'nt interfere with the Counter-Strike fanaticism! Quit whining. Many ppl play this game, so you wont just see 10 servers on the server lists. Counter-Strike Deleted Scenes is NOT Counter-Strike, by the way, just a different game, like a RPG FPS like Halo, perhaps. A MUST BUY!!! It's only 10$ now. Used to be 50$. Expand

    Aside from going practically insane online with people I just dont even understand could get so good, I love to play online, as well as with Aside from going practically insane online with people I just dont even understand could get so good, I love to play online, as well as with the bots. the bots are definitly a step up, as you can play any level you want. there is downloadables such as skins that can also improve the game a bit, and map downloads, so even if the base game werent as good as it is, it could be made even better.
