This is the best installment of the counterstrike series. Everything has been improved including the hit-boxes, the skins, and the sounds. I love that it is still easy to download new skins and sounds. The graphics are easily adjusted enableing many different rigs to play it (including mine thank god). Of course, none of this si worth it unless you have high-speed internet. Playing online is extremely addicting especially since you can play many different people, from many different countries, at many different skill levels. This erases any chance of boredum. IF YOU DO SOME HOW GET BORED HOWEVER!!! There are many different maps you can download and many different gaming modes have been created. This creates and enviroment in which you can lose many hours of sleep.
