Launched Over a decade ago as a mod for one of the most important games ever, Counter-Strike has become a pastime for tens of thousands of people worldwide.Its success is rooted in the way it"s changed và yet remained unchanged.

Evolving from a bolt-on extra khổng lồ Half-Life with a look và feel barely different from the game on which it was based, Counter-Strike: Source is now a modernfeeling thing. Over the years it"s had numerous revisions big and small, while steadfastly sticking khổng lồ its principles and listening patiently khổng lồ the bad tempered, semiliterate know-it-alls who play it.

Although its popularity has never dwindled, put both the 1.6 thủ thuật & Source versions together and you havea title with almost twice the head count of its closest rival, it isn"t attracting new blood. A lot of the people who play it today have always played it, and the clubby feel of most servers, together with the fact everyone seems khổng lồ be in a clan, means newbies don"t feel welcome. Because they aren"t.

New Guts

As a result, Counter-Strike has recently had its biggest upheaval since 2004, when its engine was swapped for Half-Life"s GoldSrc lớn Source. The nuts & bolts of the world"s most famous hostage rescue game have sầu been changed from old Half-Life 2 code lớn Orange Box, meaning it now runs the latest version of Valve"s engine that supports Windows & Mac OS X và now powers Team Fortress 2 and Portal.

Besides tư vấn for the six per cent of Steam users with Macs, the biggest gains you"ll see from this tăng cấp are multi-core processing, allowing owners of multi-core processors (ie pretty much every desktop CPU sold in the past few years) to lớn reap the benefits of multi-core rendering; better HDR support, juicier explosions; along with tweaks, bug fixes và enhancements inside Source itself.But Counter-Strike players are never more than a few moments away from complaining about something, và it"s the extras Valve sầu has added lớn the game, on top of these engineering works, that have sầu polarised a community which prides itself on acting lượt thích a two year-old beating the floor in a tantrum.

While Valve promised lớn keep the mechanics of the game itself will stay exactly as they were, the addition of over 100 achievements, "cinematic" death shots, a redesigned scoreboard overflowing with information, not to lớn mention persistent player stats và a domination/revenge system - all of which we"ve sầu seen before in other titles - Counter-Strike veterans are creating something of a fuss.If you"ve sầu spent more than five minutes with TF2, you"ll find it hard lớn understand why everyone"s in such a tizzy. Achievements are frivolous tasks that any veteran will have sầu accomplished donkey"s ago (plant 100 bombs, kill 500 enemies with the high-explosive sầu grenade, win in less than 30 seconds, and so on), they don"t get in the way of the game. They"re a bit of harmless fun, the sort of thing that entertains casual players và can be ignored by everyone else.The "cinematic death camera" is long overdue. Panning back khổng lồ see yourself slump khổng lồ the ground before getting a demeaning close-up of your killer has been an integral part of both Day of Defeat và TF2 (where it is used in conjunction with taunts for comedic effect), and in Counter-Strike can only help people learn from each other & identify cheats.

Old Complaints

The clutter on the scoreboard takes some getting used to lớn, but if players had ever set foot in other games they"d quickly realise it"s standard fare for any title that preserves match data for rankings. And the domination/revenge system, where getting killed repeatedly by the same opponent, will result in you being humiliated and under pressure to lớn even the score can only bring out the best in even the most timid players. Notoàn thân wants khổng lồ be flagged as someone"s bitch.It"s true this upgrade has brought genuine problems. The code change included numerous bugs, though Valve have already fixed most of them, releasing a succession of updates addressing the most reported issues. The beauty of Steam is that everyone gets the same updates automatically.

But therein lies the biggest problem of all. Every Source player is effectively on a roller coaster ride, unable to lớn opt out of Valve"s timetable for changes & is totally reliant on them plugging the holes they make along the way. Long gone are the days of reverting khổng lồ a working prior version: lượt thích they say in the movies, there"s no going baông xã now.

Verdict

Counter-Strike is better than ever. It"s still the old game to old hands, but is more accessible và more fun. If you gave up on the game a while baông chồng, it"s time to lớn give sầu it another go.
