  1. This is the "Rosemary's Baby" of video games, a video-offspring of demonic potential...the best multi-player game of 2000, bar none.
  2. Exciting, fun, addictive - Counter-Strike is an awesome game, but I'd recommend buying Half-Life Game of the Year Edition then simply downloading CS rather than purchasing this more limited release.
  3. A heart-pounding, visceral experience that gets under your skin. The "just one more round" addiction factor is very high. When you play it properly, with team work that clicks like a well-oiled machine, the game offers a sense of accomplishment and comradery that is simply amazing.

    It combines the best of team based gaming with an authentic and therefore exciting approach to tactical ops.

    CS is fast paced, intense, and satisfying--this game will not disappoint. This is truly one of the best mods for one of the all time greatest first person shooters ever.
  6. Buy it, download it, whatever; just get on board and enjoy. Sure-fire fun for the online enthusiast.

    One of the most evilly entertaining time-wasters since the original "Quake."

    界面简洁,容易上手,趣味性高,设计科学,一不小心就能玩很长时间,里面的城市地图都是基本依据现实的,所以在玩香港大阪这些我去过的地方就很有代入感。
    很不错的轻松益智类小游戏,地铁爱好者一定会喜欢的,希望早日登陆 iOS 平台。

    WORST GAME EVER! I've been around mroe than the block for gaming and this game seriously is the worst I've played. Firstly, why the WORST GAME EVER! I've been around mroe than the block for gaming and this game seriously is the worst I've played. Firstly, why the hell would you want to simulate real life?! This is actually THE least imaginitve game in history as far as i can tell. The makers must've just looked at the world and said "Ha, hey guys! Check out how much reality sucks! Let us inflict this thought on others".. well maybe not quite that but this sorta thing just isn't meant to be made unless as a joke. Thankfully the game is easy enough to mod, sometimes just by novelty maps so that part gets a thumbs up. FACE! Expand
