i just picked it up and noone really seems to be on live and there are only 5, i repeat FIVE ranked players. Anyone picked it up? If so give me yer gamertag and we can play! Another good thing about it is you have to have at least 6 people in a game to get stats, that means if a cheater tries to get with his other account to shoot it up, it won't count! yay cheaters suck! but anyways i did a review so check it out.:cheers: See ya on live!

Yo banaman, u r 1 of the "pioneers" of CS! Be proud, cuz in about 1 month after Christmas hits, there will be TONS of ppl online. And when that happens u can say "i was one of the first ppl on CS, on XBL!" :D

Maybe its because only a fraction of Xbox owners have live and they were too stupid to add the single player missions.

Then again it may be because its a 5 year old PC game that anyone who bought a computer in the last dacade could play for $10.

I knew that game was gonna turn out terrible from the first day I read saw it on the internet. There's no replay value to that game at all. Same thing over and over and over.

Sounds like plenty of replay value to me!

IMO,CS is not worth the $53.49 I ran to the store to dish out.Dont get me wrong its fun but RB6/3 fun I dont think so.This game should be sold at 29.99 or even go for the platnium price of 19.99.I think XIII is gona turn this game out!!!Fo Sho!!!

nah it is worth every penny IMO. Rainbow six 3 doesn't even compete because it has no objectives except to kill. In CS you have objectives. See ya on live!:cheers:

BananaMan, how are the sounds in the game -such as gunfire, reloading, footfall, etc? Do the weapons have distinguished sounds, or do they all sound the same? Also, what kinda weapons are there to choose from? I heard something about you had to buy your weapons? I didn't quite get that, but anywho.

Also, how would you rate the game's graphics? I'm considering getting this game, but I want to get LIVE first. Thanks.

The graphics are very low quailty.Game play is fun, u can hear players walking.The flashbang grenade is totaly blinding u cant, see a dang thang.Targeting is way better than RB6/3 (I'll give it that)the jump adds for sum nice surprise ambush(more freedom than RB6/3) You start out with a pistol and $800 dollars to buy sum gear.for everykill that goes down or mission completed your funds began to stack up. Honestly I would wait on this game for the price to drop.I know it will be on sale soon at BestBuy or CircuitCity.I jus dont think it holds its on as a heavy hitter.

Yes, Counter-Strike is repetitive, but, for some amazing reason, the game keeps you coming back and back and back...and on the PC, it has people coming back and back and back and back and back........

The sounds are fairly good each gun has a different sound, there's even small sounds like when you get shot in the head and you have a helmet on you can hear a ping. There are alot of weapons such as the Desert Eagle, M249 SAW, UMP, Silenced M4, .45, Magnum Sniper Rifle(AWP),etc,etc. And buying your weapons you start out each round with 800 dollars and a pistol, and as you get kills,plant bombs, save hostages, win matches,etc. you get more money. The shield is an awesome weapon for clearing hallways or vents. two grenades will kill you though and you move very slowly.These are my ratings:

Gameplay:5
Visuals:3.5
Sounds:5
Replay Value: 4.5


It's a great game, you should pick it up!:cheers:

the only thing that is really annoying is people going around calling everyone noobs... :huh:the game just come out today, they should check theirselves. And occasionally there is a smacktard that will not plant the bomb. but other than that it's a MUST HAVE!


i'll give you more of an update tomorrow once i play more maps, and etc.

Hey, thanks alot for the information. I really like great graphics, but to me sounds are almost as important. Nothing gripes me anymore than cars that sound lame, or the same -same thing for weapons. I mean, I know it's probably hard to get an M-249 SAW to sound JUST like an M-249 SAW, but com'on, at least make an attempt.

did you do that EB reserve thing over the internet? because if you had reserved it at the store you could still get it like 30% off or something like that and with the bonus. I preordered mine the 17th at my local EB and picked it up early today and i still got it for like 34.99 and the dvd cover, not to mention the guide from brady games for five bucks off of it also.:cheers: :p

I stand by my "insult." It was a bad move to cut the CZ single player action. Most people don't have live and there in no reason to buy it if you don't have live.

I'm sure a lot of people who enjoy Live. It will sell some cpies, but not nearly as many as they would have with the CZ content.

Sorry, I'm not trying to bash on your game or anything. Its just disapointing that they didn't include the single player stuff for those of us who don't enjoy multiplayer or those who can't get live (I have broadband, but haven't found anything I like better then BF1942, NWN and UT2k3 for PC so haven't paid for Live).

Anyway, nothing personal, just saying no SP sucks, especially when I can get the same thing on the PC for $10.

I pre ordered mine like 2 months ago from the movie store I work at but our shipments don't come til thursday, sometimes even friday so I'm here on thursday morning waiting for a phone call. :(

Good god I'm so excited for this game. I don't care what the CS trashers say, I'll come to my own conclusion about the game.

yeah man it's a great game. alot of people are trashing it though, i think it's because they're graphic junkies. the graphics do kinda suck but, the gameplay is great! we'll have to play on live sometime:cheers:

If the video game stores near me have it, I'll rent it this weekend. Normally, I'd pick it up immediately, but I've heard too many mixed reviews. Plus, RS3 is more than enough to satisfy my FPS urges for now. So maybe I'll just wait a while until I get sick of RS3.

Nevertheless, even if it is a really great game, I fear that even in its greatness, it's dissappointing a lot of people.

Well, with some help, I got LIVE hooked up, and running tonight. I also picked up Counter Strike. I played through the tutorial, ran through a couple single player games, and then hit the LIVE arena. I got owned alot, owned some, and played the damn thing until my fingers went numb. Online is a must for this title, but it certainly rocks. If you have LIVE are a fan of the genre, and don't mind some mediocre graphics, grab this gem up. You'll be glad you did. I can't remember when I have had so much fun.

:cheers:
