Counter-Strike: Condition Zero
(hx) 12:20 AM CEST - Apr,04 2004

Counter Strike is without a doubt, the most played multiplayer modification in the world. For those who have never tried Counter-Strike, it's an online, team-based first-person shooter that pits terrorists against counter terrorists. You fight over hostages, planting bombs, and use a wide variety of weapons. Each team has different ammunition and equipment options at its disposal, with individual players having unique attributes and the ability to upgrade their equipment upon the successful completion of missions that have specific and varied goals such as hostage rescue, assassination and eliminating enemy structures. Even though people could still download and play the original Half-Life mod for free, the retail version of Counter-Strike became a best seller - probably that's why Valve decided to release Condition Zero, a new Counter Strike game which emphasized single player. The development of Counter Strike: Condition Zero started internally at Valve Software, then quickly moved to Gearbox, then to Ritual Entertainment, and finally over to Turtle Rock Studios. Now, after passing through the hands of several different developers, Counter-Strike: Condition Zero (CS:CZ) is finally here!

Maps, Bots
CS:CZ is essentially an offline botmatch mode of the familiar multiplayer. The bot-match campaign is structured in tiers, each containing three maps (18 maps in total) that must be completed to move on. Most of the maps are drawn from Counter-Strike's classic collection, so you will immediately recognize - Dust, Office, Prodigy, Italy, Inferno, Dust 2, Militia, Chateau, Havana, Cobblestone, Aztec, Airstrip, Piranesi, Torn. The maps are slightly improved (speed, graphics), but the improvements mostly feel more like a patch, not a new take on Counter-Strike (except the Militia map which is now vastly different from CS). There are also some new maps - Tides, Stadium, Downed a Fastline which look fairly good. To make gameplay a bit more enjoyable, each map has a number of additional objectives. For example, kill an enemy with the sniper rifle, rescue hostages, or win a round in less than 75 seconds. Of course, there are also "new" models for weapons, equipment and the player models, however they are all taken directly from CS v1.6. To be honest, the only really new thing in CS:CZ are the bots - all of your enemies and teammates are CPU bots. The bots are quite smart - they follow your orders well, they use voice communication to tell you what's going on in the map (voice and pitch of each bot is unique) and they have different personalities. The personality consists of four attributes (level 1-5): skill, co-op, bravery, and favorite weaponry. The highest level teammate is a level 5 bot. I had quite a bit of fun for a few hours playing against them in the singleplayer missions.

Undeleted "Deleted Scenes" ?
As bonus, CS:CZ also contains the "Deleted Scenes", the single-player campaign that Ritual was working on before game development was handed off to Turtle Rock. Deleted Scenes are 12 levels, the best of 20 or so that Ritual developed. Unfortunately, the Deleted Scenes seem like flashbacks to the shooters of 1999.There are some separate missions, each taking place in a different corner of the world and you play as a member of that particular country's counter-terrorist group.Your job is to take out the terrorists or enemies. If you will try to play, you will immediately understand why Ritual's project was canceled. However, frankly, it totally sucks.

To conclude, CS:CZ is Counter-Strike 1.6 with a few bad additions and one good one, namely the bots which will entertain you if you can't play online. So, is this title worth buying? Nope. Not worth the money. This retail package offers poor value and is a huge disappointment. Paying full price ($39.99) for a bots isn't a very wise decision since the multiplayer component is available for free (if you have a copy of Half-Life).

System requirements: Pentium III 500 MHz (800MHz recommended), 96 MB RAM (128MB recommended), 16 MB Video Card (32MB recommended), 500 MB HD Space, Win-Compatible Sound Card, Mouse, Keyboard

snd: 3/5 - voices and weapons are okay
gfx: 2/5 - very dated, some improvements to the engine
playability: 3/5 - the same as CS1.6+bots = poor value, no option to use the models used in the "Deleted Scenes", many bugs
genre: multiplayer first-person shooter + bots
release: March 2004
the game is similar to: HL: CS 1.6
publisher: Vivendi
Overall: 50%

You know....i'm an expert at Counter-Strike...but i never played Condition Zero only once....then , i thought it had very cool graphics and stuff , but when i played it , i seemed the same thing as 1.5.....i don't see the difference....

Xillposted - Apr, 04 2004 - 02:03
Xtian CS is a Mod, a couple a friend have make it, and when Valve had see the popularity of it, they buy it. So you cant say that this game should never been made. Valve is the problem here.

IDposted - Apr, 04 2004 - 03:41
CS is the problem because it sux, and yes valve sux too!. No wait.. the biggest problem is that half-life really is the quake engine and not valve's own.

Moranposted - Apr, 04 2004 - 11:49
Vavle should have used the resources used to create condition zero to get Halflife 2 out quicker

Phreezer Burnposted - Apr, 04 2004 - 12:07
I play CS, its a classic game that is great for new players and easy to learn and play with friends, but I like it for the competitions, its still widely played at lans and competitions and is the main platform for cpl/cal play. The lifespan of this game shows that it is great and has many clones since nothing new can be though up anymore, but it should pass away and new/better games need to rise and take its throne. Games like UO, HL, and quake needs to die and let newer games with new ideas take over. After a new game comes out we tend to run back to these games probably since we played for years and feel it is a waste to leave our skill/knowledge behind to learn a newer better game.

They should have used my graphics engine, but didn't want to pay. How tight.

joolz, you're right. this game should have an "optimized for ATI" logo on it. finally a game designed for ATI cards. =D

hey, tom, what are you trying to pull here ? we know that you upgraded your geforce2mx to 5950 just to play the original Counterstrike.

he likes to call himself and expert because he sits aroudn all day playign, and he can kill some nubs :P i had that leaked 'cz' long ago when hl2 was leaked, and, that super dooper alpha or whatever you call it, was a lot funner than the retail cz, its terrible. heh

Ref_xposted - Apr, 04 2004 - 23:16
I had never tried CS games before at all, so i thought i'd give it a try. Boy oh boy was I actually sadly suprised when i played the game. I had been playing Delta Force games ever since DeltaForce1 came out and lemme tell u that no other multiplayer comes even close to newest Delta Force-Joint Operation Typhoon Rising. If i had to choose i'd choose typhoon rising any day in order of fun, realism, or even sheer adrenaline when u fly AH-6 attack bird against a mounted bunker with 50's on top firing at Yo ass OR when u go against a against a Armored tank only with your sniper rifle. Give it a try, find fast server and believe me You won't regret it.

Dakoinaposted - Apr, 05 2004 - 01:36
one of the only reasons why CS is still being played: crappy systems cannot show more advanced games like DX9 games :p CS; CS-CZ ... it's been hyped too much by its fans and gameplay is nothing but the same shit anyway CS graphics suck badly, if you're even trying to release such a game in this time of the next game generation: just give it away for free for those cs fanboys, get a life and try something new!

some_dudeposted - Apr, 05 2004 - 03:02
Yes the product CZ is crap. But CS itself isn't. All the people here that think the game sucks is because they suck at it themselves, and are unworthy. It is pure competition, but can be for fun as well. And I don't see how people just crave for graphics these days, when there is really nothing "new" about the games they buy besides a few particular minor elements. Certainly there weren't too many games out there before Counterstrike that focused upon realism, but now, many games are headed that way because they saw its success(even though it was free, but the amount of downloads shows its poplutlarity). From the looks of it, there doesn't seem to be any real gamers around here, seeing that all they comment on is the game's graphics or the company's marketing. There are a whole lot of other aspects that you should look at when judging a game. Most importantly, how appealing a game is can be shown by how much support it has and its lifespan. Both those points are true to this game called CS, and those who ridicule it are just fools of the highest calibur.

i wouldnt even insult my video card, playing HL1 anymore.

Tower of babelposted - Apr, 05 2004 - 08:57
I played through this game and i thought it was fairly good myself. I dunno why you are all saying the ai sucks. the AI is the best i have EVER seen. The enemies dont "see" you if you are walking, you can actually sneak up on them which is quite a feat i think. The bots in ut2k4 practically shoot you thru walls (they do shoot you thru trees which you cant see thru but they can). The bots comunicate well and do their best to complete the objective. I think the AI for this game should be praised. Yes the graphics arent great but i dont really care about graphics myself, i just like to have fun. But still this game does seem fairly pointless, it doesnt add new weapons or anything in terms of gameplay (except the bots of course). I mean if your gonna play online, this game is pointless as there is no difference as far as i know except some maps between cs and cz

Bill Gatesposted - Apr, 05 2004 - 13:11
I'm worried about you TowerOfBabel... you actually spent time playing then reviewing CZ... somebody buy this man a copy of FarCry.

wow its to bad the cs guys made this ,.,.they must be crying sumwhere.. for making this ONCE great game Look like crap.. they shoulda made a new engine... even the beta testers who played this didnt like it ,,.,. thats why i dont get why they put it out... very odd

Tomposted - Apr, 05 2004 - 16:00
CZ, like man give it up! How much more can you soak that engine? I don't know any fool that would pay +$40 for this trash..Ipersonally don't know how anyone can play Halflife anymore, the graphics are beyond crap, zero realism, KNOWN cheats. I think people play HL1 because it's the only thing they have talent for.

some dude sucksposted - Apr, 05 2004 - 16:29
CS never ahd realism never will have and yes they were realistic shooters before cs even before hl

The Bots are awsome! (Best I`ve ever seen in CS Game) Well Podbot was nice but now they`re great. They say where they see the enemy (if they see one) and thats very important, and there are sevaral levels to adjust for their skill and the last is quite frustrating (2 bullets and u`re alway dead - headshot). The best thing is that they now only see what they hear, no more running around the corner and the bot already aimed before he sees you. Well the Price is just to high for this remake of an classic. But if you dont want the steam-shit (as me) and you are CS addict - buy it (maybe later if it get cheaper).

xxxx, first off moron impersonating me, i wouldn't buy ATI if I had a gun to my head(and everyone knows that here). only a n00b dumb ass gamer would buy ATI and ur pretty much what i'm talking about since only a kid would impersonate someone on this site and then be absolutely ZERO in the humor category. as for this game, i got a 5 finger discount on it, the game stinks. i didn't even burn it. WHY did they even bother?? maybe they use the profits to give their HL2 programmers a raise? =D

some_dudeposted - Apr, 07 2004 - 20:17
Maybe people should think more about the difference between concept realism and game engine realism. And I'm glad someone mentioned FBI Hostage Rescue, now that is the definition of crap... The reason why nubs think that something can replace CS as something like CS, is because they don't know about true gaming competition. It's a game where everyone can play, but it depends on your level of play. So it can be fun for everyone. On the competitive side, Counterstrike is one of the most definite professional games out there. As you may see (or not if your not a gamer), CPL and Cal-i CS tournaments are at the top of the list. Although UT related contests have been recently encouraged by Nvidia and such, you don't hear the *that* often around your average UT players. But many of those who play CS know the legendary CPL teams such as Team 3D, zeX, and such...

Tomposted - Apr, 07 2004 - 21:15
Ya you forgot to mention the immense number of cheats, uncluding aimbots, weapon hacks, cvar hacks, 3rd party hacks etc for CS. Ya real professional game. What kills me about CS and HalfLife in general is the complete obliviance of cheats. They think they got all this anticheat in place and they are playing in clean servers. Newflash for all you guys, the anticheats don't work! Ding Ding Ding. I know a current game developer who working for a popular game company that lays claim to a lot of the current and used cheats today in CS. Actually, this got him a job with the company as well. People who play HL in general are all nubs or people who just can't cope in modern games. Either their system or their playing abilities are crap.

Jaredposted - Apr, 08 2004 - 01:31
WOOHOO GO TOM I agree with him. Lets all go play Battlefield Vietnam.

some_dudeposted - Apr, 08 2004 - 02:19
You must be joking about the playing abilities. Those that are decently good at shooting in CS can wipe you out in any FPS game (at least in pure shooting/aiming). And hacks only appearing commonly on "fun servers", where little administration occur. Those that have experience can tell between a player who hacks and those that are skilled. Let me add that CS isn't the only game that CS players play. The game is used for "reunion" like situations and just to fire up whenever. I should also mention that some of those professional teams also take part in other professional level games as well. If I were to get personal, I'll say that I can probably beat the crap out of all those nubs in any game that think everyone who still plays old games is nub.

CS is a great game to give to monkeys or mentally-handicapped children trying to learn motor skills. In fact, I use the game in my research facility to test the improvement of motor skills on the handicapped children through pain tests. I have the monkeys vs. the retards, with the subjects tied up to car batteries. Each time a retard kills a monkey, the monkey is shocked. Likewise with the retard. If the monkey dies, we all stop and pause to have a moment of silence before we all run a train on the monkey and use it for pleasure. If the retard dies, we give the monkey a bananna and toss the tard in the dumpster.
