Counter-Strike is team-based, and casts players in the role of terrorist or counter-terrorist. Each team has access to different ammunition and equipment, and each player has unique attributes and the ability to upgrade their gear as they successfully complete each mission. A growing number of missions are available, each having specific goals, such as rescuing a hostage or eliminating key enemy structures.

Op de site staan wel een paar kleine foutjes, zoals de verkeerde hoeveelheid RAM vereist voor CS (ze hebben waarschijnlijk gewoon de sys reqs van HL zelf overgenomen...) en de verkeerde Beta 1 release datum van CS .
