Counter-Strike, Fire in the hole
Counter-Strike 1.6 is a first person shooter in which you take control of one faction, terrorist or counter terrorist, and you have to defeat the rival team.
Counter Strike 1.6 is completely multiplayer . Until Counter-Strike: Condition Zero this FPS hadn’t campaign mode. Counter-Strike 1.6 follows the basis of the genre: two different teams that have to defeat each other.
Enjoy this classic mod of Half-Life on your PC and be able to understand why this game defined an era.
Choose your side
You can choose between two different teams: counter-terrorists or their enemies, the terrorists.
There are some differences between these factions. Their skins are completely different and you can choose four for each team. You can play as guerrilla warfare, as an arctic avenger or as an U.S. Navy SEAL.
On the other hand the weapons are slightly different between teams and here it is the eternal discussion, AK or colt. Terrorists have some weapons like Dual Berettas, AK47 or Krieg 552. Counter-terrorists have the Five-SeveN, Colt M4 or the AUG.
The bomb has been planted
Counter Strike has three maps: Assassination, Hostage Rescue or Bomb Defusal.
Assassination is the usual scenario in which you have to defeat the enemy team. In hostage rescue maps, the CTs have to save the scientists that are held captives by the terrorist faction and eliminate them. Lastly bomb defusal, where the terrorist team has to plant the bomb on the assigned area and CTs have to prevent it, or just in case defuse the bomb.
Counter-Strike offers improved graphics and physics
Counter-Strike 1.6 has the same game engine as Half-Life, but it is graphically improved. It has new designs such as maps, arms and models and is very detailed for what sound refers.
When you step on grass or on a river it sounds quiet different and you may be discovered, so take care and think on a strategy before acting.
Technically the game has aged, that’s unavoidable, but it keeps the same identity that made it pretty popular back in 2000.
Counter-Strike 1.6 keeps the same competitive spirit. Pretty easy to play but very hard to master, it is worth to install it again and make your team wins.
