I've never been on that Vig on multiplayer shooting games I mean I don't know why that is I've just preferred my shooting games to be offline rather than online however one game that I lost countless hours to was the original counter-strike even before it was known in version 1.6 and was standalone when it was an actual mod for half-life gonna go plant the bomb now I don't know if people can understand it nowadays but playing it back down as a young sunny Jim,

it was a bit of a tense and suspenseful game like those moments when you were the last person left alive and could hear nearby footsteps as the enemy team was still moving around then you get those rare moments too and you'd be the last person left and plant the bomb or even defuse it and win the match for your deceased team members it was a rollercoaster of emotion to let me tell you it was a game that took up a fair chunk of my teenage years so when condition zero was announced in 2001 there's being this bigger and better version of counter-strike I was pretty damn excited after numerous delays in the game going between multiple developers mostly rogue Entertainment Turtle Rock Studios and ritual entertainment before finally falling back into the hands of the valve it was released in 2004 and it turned out to be a monumental PC, 

Sure it wasn't the first time valve at blown smoke up our asses and it sure as hell wouldn't be the last episode it content anyone anyway ignoring the fact that Doom 3 and half-life 2 were months away from being released making conditions zero even more redundant it was in essence a little more than a slight visual upgrade over the original textures and weapon models were slightly updated and improved and certain maps had also been redone with more detail visually in terms of the modelling and architecture the game's most original inclusion though is the offline mode against bots now this components of the game being developed by Turtle Rock Studios here un reputation points by playing to the maps on different difficulties and slowly building a team as you progress through a tour of duty pretty much all of this content was just the revamped maps from 1.6 like dust Italy Aztec and so forth with the player taking on an increasingly challenging roster of bots similar to the tears in quake 3 I mean it wasn't groundbreaking in the slightest and it's probably the least amount of work they had to do to justify making people pay for it.

However this mode can actually take a bit of time to complete and even on the normal tip it'll be mode it's actually pretty challenging I'm not sure what exactly the difficulty modifiers though I mean as far as I could tell it just means the bots more accurate their path finding and overall navigation seems to still be the same if you're hoping you can use this mode to train for online play though well then you're sadly mistaken because playing with bots and then playing online is an entirely different kettle of fish about all that playing offline is gonna do is help you get used to the handling of weapons but more importantly the layouts of the maps which makes you more aware of the vantage points you can attack other players from and vice-versa for them and that's also why it's so hard to review counter-strike in the conventional sense I mean you can talk about the mechanics and the weapons and the maps and all that but none of its outright bad or all that worthy of criticism and the game itself is dependent on the type of experience you have personally when playing online what I can at least reviewer at least to focus on a bit more other deleted scenes this was created originally by ritual entertainment and it comprised of 12 single-player missions taking place in different locations around the world as you took on various terrorist factions using the weapons and equipment available in the online component,

 it's said that this thing was a complete mess before launch and so the game was put back into development and handed over to Turtle Rock Studios who I guess kept the damn thing on life support and finished it all off for its final release Turtle Rock Studios of course being the developers who went on to create the awesome left 4 dead series in the woefully forgettable Ebola there's so many reasons as to why deleted Saenz is as bad as it is I just genuinely don't know where to start the start is it's probably about as boring and generic as a shooting game could possibly get they pretty much completely stripped back to different attributes so that all the weapons from counter-strike originally had will still be using the ak-47 the Steyr org and so forth but the way they all handle went fired their recoil accuracy and so forth has been completely messed with the suit amor run and gun style approach kind of anyway i mean you can't really be going through it holding down that left mouse button but it still is a lot more simplistic than it was in 1.6 a game where you could be fully crouched and tapping the fire button and with certain weapons you still wouldn't hit what you had to crosshairs on i think another issue is that the enemy AI is completely brain-dead,

Now the boy AI for the offline component of conditions here I was almost like playing against another person at least in the sense that the AI could navigate the map quite well and complete objectives and show off some degree of self-awareness checking corners and making sure it didn't get flanked in deleted scenes are the AR consists of enemies either standing in one place and shooting at you which happens to 90 per cent of the time well that other 10 per cent of the time where they're running around usually just to another position where they'll stand still and shoot at you occasionally you'll see the odd enemy with a machete which makes sense in some of the jungle-themed missions but just seems silly in those set anywhere else and I think a dozen or so times if not less I saw an enemy wearing a suicide bombers vest though all that guy did was run right up to me and blow himself up like a total asshole,

but look I can understand that it's not an exact carbon copy of the way the weapons handle in the online mode but even if you look at it as its own standalone shooting game it still kind of sucks the shooting itself just feels crappy enemies often survive multiple headshots you can hit someone at point-blank range with a shotgun and they don't even flinch
despite enemies often using the same weapons as the player you've still got to rely on picking up ammo boxes at fixed locations instead I also think too that most of the weapons are more or less the same in terms of the damage output a few bullets from a pistol or an assault rifle will do an enemy in making automatic weapons a far better choice than slower weapons like the sniper rifles or shotguns on top of all of that shit the game is also super buggy 5 countless times when the next scripted sequence just didn't occur properly nine times out of ten when someone's supposed to kick down a nearby door or something and the only way I could progress through missions was by turning on noclip mode and cheating my way through the locked door I will say though that one of the things I do kind of find interesting is how you can kind of look at this game almost as if it's modern warfare before modern warfare even existed it has this very similar opening to each mission where the screen shows the time and location and it's always hopping from destination to destination for each mission putting you into the shoes of another Special Forces type member be you know the s a yes or a Navy SEAL a lot of the missions similarly also start off with you in some kind of helicopter as you're flying over a forest or a city before you dropped onto the ground and it all kicks off spider team breach the compound fun and secure the packages eliminate any opposition and destroy all drugs

equipment and conditions air has also got a lot of scripted sequences I mean there may be pretty crappy but they're still scripted all the same you're often blowing up something with explosives rescuing hostages or maybe taking out a tank with a rocket launcher I mean this kind of thing became standard fare with the absolute barrage of modern warfare in spite shooters we'd get over the next decade condition zero and the

best-looking game in the world either for its time the gold sauce engine was looking pretty damn bold but one thing that has to be said about the game and I think one of its biggest strengths is the mission variety visually you're always gonna be just shooting the same looking one or two enemies over and over that much is true but the environments themselves are almost always unique one mission your Anna rain soaked jungle then the next you're moving through the streets of Japan before a rooftop in Ireland this is where I say the ritual entertainment influence in the whole thing and anyone who's played sin I think we'll remember how unique and buried all the levels in that game were as well usually visuals don't really matter all that much if the gameplay is solid and honestly the gameplay solid for the most part but you have to consider the puritan gaming when this whole thing was released I mean this is the period when the CryEngine the EdTech 4 engine and the source engine will all unleashed on the world and for a dated engine from 1998 to still be in

operation just made the whole thing seem even more antiquated and it wasn't done in an ironic throwback kinda way either they were just using old technology there's not any other way to look at

it doesn't matter in the whole grand scheme of things and like I said if the gameplay is solid it often doesn't matter but my point is that this factor probably didn't help the game's reception if condition zero had have come out in 2001 when it was supposed to it might have been successful but the fact that it took another three years before the whole thing saw the light of day I think was the real nail in the coffin

by that point, counter-strike had had three years to get its fanbase muriatic did not mention bringing other players into the fray as well and if that ain't enough also consider that in 2004 valve would also release

counter-strike source which would alienate condition zero even more in fact and I think I knew a single person who played condition zero for more than a couple of weeks at Absolute max it was the battle born and lawbreakers of its day people checked it out mostly just out of curiosity but then went back to 1.6 what is kind of funny though is that condition zero actually has more players at the moment than both battle-born and lawbreakers combined so it might be a bit of a failure but it's still not either of those games it ain't all that bad though I mean if you just want to play counter-strike

offline against bots condition zero is a pretty superior option considering it has bot support right out of the box so to speak whereas with 1.6 you kind of need to mod it in the inclusion of the tour of duty mode gives the maps a bit of challenge as well making it more than just winning a certain amount of times forcing the player to meet certain restrictions to get victory once you start playing it on the hard or expert missions Friendly Fires also introduced which alone means you have to be a lot more aware of your surroundings and where your teammates are the conditions to win these matches are also a lot trickier too like finishing around in 60 seconds or less or killing three enemies with a specific type of weapon and then also surviving that round just as an example and if you want to play

counter-strike playing with bots is sadly the only option for a lot of people depending on where you live in the world I mean I'm lucky if I can find a server with a ping below 200 mostly it's in the high fours or fires because dedicated service for both conditions 0 and 1.6 are long gone when I look back and think about playing Counter-Strike I'll think about playing pulled out what used to be the local LAN centre with my school friends

when I used to live with my parents and playing through Italy and Aztec late on a Saturday or Friday night showing off my custom spray paints to strangers back during a time when multiplayer

shooters were more simply sticking about skill more than just who fired first honestly though I don't think about condition zero at all its improvements on the original game was so minimal that it hardly warranted all that much attention at the time and even now there's less of a reason to play it I don't think there's ever been a better example in gaming of so many talented people working on something for so long for ultimately something that ended up being such a letdown and it was a damn shame.
