Though war and battle games are popular with male and female players of all ages, one of the top games that players love in this genre is Counter-Strike: Condition Zero. Originally released back in 2004, this game is just as exciting today as it was back then.
Counter-Strike: Condition Zero is a major improvement over the first game in the series. This first-person shooting game includes a campaign mode that lets you practice and improve your speed, accuracy and general shooting skills. Though previous versions lacked campaign mode, when you download the game today, you get access to this mode. You'll have the chance to see how the game works and what you can do in the game before going online. One complaint that some players have is that campaign mode is boring because it doesn't include much of a story.
The real reason to play Counter-Strike: Condition Zero is for its multiplayer mode. You select the server that you want to play on, which lets you join a battle with your friends by your side or jump right into battle with a group of complete strangers. The game awards you points not just for how well you shoot but how you play the game too. You'll earn points for working with your teammates, shooting with precision and accuracy and coming up with new strategies to succeed within the game.
While you might think that Counter-Strike: Condition Zero is a game designed for more experienced players, it's also great for beginners. The more points you score, the more weapons you can unlock. You can also use your points to improve your skills, which will help you go further. New players can earn points just for playing well though, which means that a new player can level up faster than ever. The more strategic you are in your movements and decisions, the further you'll go.
If you decide to play the campaign mode, you'll have computer generated players on your team. Counter-Strike: Condition Zero AI players are not very helpful though. Those characters may get in your way, keep you from killing enemy forces and even cause you to make decisions that result in your death. Those who spend a lot of time playing first-person shooting games will also notice the outdated graphics found in this game. If you want a fun game that you can play with friends and newbies though, Counter-Strike: Condition Zero is a good choice.
