    Has anyone played
    Counter Strike?

    I am trying to get hold of some PC games for a LAN party. I have been told there is one by Valve called Counter-Strike that has bot's available on all the maps.

    When I go onto amazon

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/search/r...field-keywords=Counter-Strike&Go.x=10&Go.y=16

    there's various editions and they don't say the are LAN but Online requirement! Also the product is done by EA games and not steam?:blink

    im getting that hopefully soon.... when i do, i'll let you know..

    edit: i reckon if you can play online you should be about to play on LAN. Normally i found, when it states online requirement, its mainly there to verify you key

    Monkey, you can download it directly through Valve's Steam client - it will also probably work out much cheaper because all the prices are in Dollars and one Dollar = about 10p at the moment (or something like that anyway). You can get it cheaper still if you buy it through Steam as part of a package of games as well.

    Also, your best bet is to get Counter-Strike Source which is the same game but runs on the Source engine (same as Half-Life 2) rather than the original HL engine so you get better graphics and the like.

    HTH.:D

    Thanks Baba!

    It's good to see your back!

    I have had a look at soem of the reviews on C-S:source, some say it can only be activated through the steam website?
    Sounds a bit like HL2. I had problem trying to get online when HL2 came out! I think there's must of been hundreds of people trying to get the account activated!

    The reviews state, the graphics are run from half Life 2 engine but say can only be played online?

    Have you played the game Baba?

    Cheers Mate!:biggrin

    Haven't played CS:Source no. You're right though, Steam has to connect to you verify your account even if you're playing single-player.
