... watch some vids on youtube (countless fragvids,...).
dont make the mistake to think its like tce, if u arent good at fps u'll fail in cs(s). imo its not worth it to newly start playing it now (not even that much fun anymore either). but if u think u'll have enough fun on the servers (that is worth paying like 20$, according to steam) then go for it^^

and no afaik css doesnt come with hl2 unless its in some pack (which obv costs more)

Funny, just today one of my friends announced he is selling CS 1.6 and CSS for only 4 euros :? I wouldn't recommend buying from private people (not like I don't trust him), you never know if the CD keys or anything is used or something.

CS is a fun game. I think of it as Unreal Tournament with existing weapons and minor movement restrictions (penalty, not realism based).

It can get pretty hard if you don't have several hours a day to invest in your skill.

One more thing to note, CS1.6>CSS.

thanks for the replies,

are there 3rd party maps on the servers of CS/CSS, like its automatically installing 3rd party maps if you get in a server?,
tbh, i dont want that,

but keep the reviews coming guys, i wanna hear everyone's opinions before i buy these 2 games,

Ok, pretty much a simple game.

2 teams (Counter-terrorists and Terrorists) that have guns and kill each other (like in TC).

Bunnyhopping and strafejumping (like in Quake), however in most servers you get banned if you do it.

3 gametypes:
Bomb mode (like in TC objective mode)
team deathmatch (in rounds)
hostage rescuing (There are AI/Bot hostages that you need to talk to as CT and get them to the rescue point, Ts must not allow it happen).
CS 1.6 also has a VIP mode, where 1 player is a VIP, he gets the regular pistol and 125 (or was it 200?) armor, CTs have to escort him to the safe zone (which is almost always located in the Ts respawn point) but the Terrorists have to assasinate the VIP.

No iron-sights, crosshairs only

No leaning.

No sprinting.

Very many modded servers (like zombie mod and many servers that have random shit popping up when doing a headshot etc. etc.)

Both teams start with a pistol they get for free, to get new guns they must buy them at the round start. You get money for killing enemies, doing objectives and succsesfully winning a round. You can also buy body armor, helmet, night vision, defusal kit (CTs only, they can defuse the bomb faster with it), flashbang, smoke and explosive grenades.

You run faster if you have a knife in your hand.

You run much slower if you have an LMG or a sniper or a heavy assault rifle.

You shoot more precisely if you are crouched.

The community (like in all Valve games) are full of 10-year-olds.

CSS doesn't change anything much - better visuals, achievements, some changed stats for guns, no more riot shield and VIP gametype.

so if i look at the official serverlist of the game, will there be modded servers popping? can i turn that off?

Well, there are no official servers - public server is public. It will take a hard time to find servers without any mod applied to it. There are about 20% servers that use mods or plugins that only help the admin with kicking banning and other stuff, but it's basically OK.
