This is a great online shooter for the xbox. The controls are really good. The online is really good and their are lots of people still playing it online. There are 2 online modes, bomb placement and hostage rescue. I like hostage rescue best. Before the beginning of each online match, you purchase weapons, armor, and amo. You work together with your squad online. If you go off on your on, you're likely to get outnumbered and die, that is why it is important to stay with your squad. If you die online you don't respawn you wait until the end of the match, after that you can come back. The graphics are pretty good. But the blood effects are a little weak. The game is backwards compatible on the 360, the graphics are improved a little, and I enjoyed it a little more on the 360. The single play is mostly practice for the online, you choose the mode,map, and how smart you want to make the bots. Overall counterstrike is a good xbox live game, if you have xbox live definitely give this a try.
Counter-Strike There are the two classes to choose from in this game, in every level. Counter-Strike is an Addictive game for the PC, now same can be said for the XBOX, The xbox version does not include a story line as the "Counter-Strike: Condition Zero*PC*" Does, The XBox version of this game is based off of "Condition Zero" with models and skins, But even though there is no campaign, it is still a great game, before beginning a match in this game you choose the certain settings that fit you best, such as difficulty, but there is a custom setting too, so you can set Difficulty and add more bots to the match, plus how much cash you start off with. -max amount of bots in Singleplayer-11- The Graphics are not stunning, but Graphics arent what always make a game good, The gameplay is unique on its own to say, You start a match by choosing what you want to be, Say a Terrorist or a Counter-Terrorist. How ever much money you start off with in this game is how much you have to spend on weapons, Ammunition, and equipment. The two game types are Hostage Rescue and Demolition. Hostage Rescue on its own describes its self. The terrorist are defending four hostages that the Counter-Terrorist must capture and return them to the hostage recue area. Demolition is a match where the terrorist start off with a C4 bomb and Have to plant it in one of two diffrent sectors -named "A" and "B"- either matchs can end if all of the players in one team dies before any of the objectives are completed.
Now with saying that there are two diffrent types of matchs, the maps only have one of those types, So one map is specific to Hostage rescue, and another is specific to Demolition.
Now system link mode is great fun when you want to play with other humans, you can do Bots vs. humans or humans only. in system link the max amount of bots you can have are 8 and 4 humans. setting everything up is basically just like single player, No respwawns!
This is a decent game for the Xbox I only reccomend playing it on Xbox live though cause thats where it really shines.although there are bots and its fun to put it on easy and just own them all.If you see it at your local super market for 20 bucks just buy it its worth it.
