Counter-Strike: Source blends Counter-Strike's award-winning teamplay action with the advanced technology of Source technology. Featuring state of the art graphics, all new sounds, and introducing physics, Counter-Strike: Source is a must-have for every action gamer.
Game updates since mid 2010 are done by Hidden Path Entertainment.
Still a well known, competitively played shooter with active community members from all over the world. From the year it was released back in '04 to the present date, Valve's continued efforts to improve on the game and make sure it still remains as much like the original CS as possible, result in more and more people beginning to play and new servers are still being raised. While Counter-Strike may be a tactical shooter that not everyone can just pick up and play effectively, it's still a bargain for it's current price on Steam.
The thing that gets me about this game is the lack of detail in some maps (I'm a bit of a graphics wh*re, I know) but I understand that it would be difficult to expand on most maps without deducting from it's original tactical gameplay qualities. Luckily for me however, a few selection of maps were done by Turtle Rock studios, who managed to develop them to look like something that wasn't ported directly from Goldsource (Inferno FTW).
And to anyone complaining about the new update "ruining" the game, there are literally 5 console commands that would hide all of the stuff that Valve worked so hard to implement in to the game. Heck, some servers are even modded to exclude all of the new features, they're given an option!
A fantastic game from Valve, the only real flaw comes with the people that player. Either you're in a server where; a) People actually are hacking. Or b) Nobody is hacking, but the other people are too stupid to believe they can be beaten, and so the mic-spam begins.
