Valve also didn't make any announcement about HL2 being delayed for another year until a week before it's Sept 30th release date.

Ya but valve said that Condition Zero has gone gold so any excuse they make up to delay it further will be lame.

The hail mary worked, and on November 18th Counter-Strike: Condition Zero will finally be released over Steam and in retail stores. It doesn't look like it will disappoint.

saying it's gone gold, and actually shipping it to manufacturing are apparently two totally different things. i think it's pretty obvious that valve has no reservations about claiming one thing and doing soimething completely different.

btw, during our lunch-time trip to best buy... yeah, no CS:CZ anywhere to be found.

ya, i was waiting for ign's review. They gave it a 7.9. They're usually on point with their reviews, and i usually wont buy a 7.9. I wasnt ever considering it. I just didn't think all these reviews were going to look at the graphics and sound and singleplayer. If CS just came out today for the pc i guess ign would give it a 7.9 also you know, because of all the variables and criteria they grade upon.
I guess the way he puts it makes sense though, here you go cause i know your all to lazy to go find it:

"Closing Comments:
Counter-Strike is a decent game if you take it for what it is. However, I couldn't help but feel disappointed that neither Ritual nor Valve nor Microsoft Game Studios seized the opportunity to make the Xbox version of Counter-Strike something more visually impressive and worthy of our attention. As it is, Counter-Strike doesn't offer an online shooter experience like Return to Castle Wolfenstein or Rainbow Six 3 where there are unique styles and gameplay subsystems to keep us interested. It just offers a straight ahead first person shooter that's made it over from PC in better shape than I could've predicted. It's just strange that the game that inspired so many evolutions of the FPS genre is now back again on Xbox competing with so many games of its own legacy.
You may have read this before, but Counter-Strike is a lot like Michael Jordan in a Wizards jersey. The greatness of the name is undeniable, but nowadays they're both merely competitive. This game is a must have like a 2002-2003 Jordan trading card."

"valve has no reservations about claiming one thing and doing soimething completely different"
so true, and they put this image like they are all about the community and such, not doing such a good job communicating now are we. they revealed some surprises and now they cant get anything done when they wanted to. valve is now officially in the hype buisness.
I'm sorry to say this, but i'm not so sure why everyone praises valve in the first place. I guess i just didn't like half-life that much anyway. So far, everything else with a valve logo on it wasnt even made by them. I'm looking forward to hl2 more for the mods and such then the game itself.

It has to come out in the next week cuz they cant update the game or add things cuz the strategy guide is already out so if they enhanced the game they would have to scrap all the strategy guides and start off fresh rewriting the guide. just my 14 cents

they didnt delay it to update, they already said updates are in the works to download through steam. I think steam still isnt ready to distribute the product. Vavle is all about the cash, plus at the current state it would probably f*ck up all our pings for at least a week strait.

Who ever wrote closing comments doesn't seem to understand that CS multiplayer anything BUT "straight ahead first person shooter". If it were, it would be called Quake3, but it isn't.

Also, the reason no one added specular highlights or shaders to the graphics for CSX is because the engine would need a complete rewrite to add special graphics features that are available in the latest unreal and quake engines. People forget... CS:CZ and CSX are built on the HL engine from 1998!

that's right! because we all know strategy guide publishers dictate game development.
</sarcasm>

sorry kevin, but you really have no clue what you are talking about. you bought a strategy guide for a game that, quite honestly, shouldn't ever need one considering there have been Counter-Strike strategy guides on the shelf for a couple years now. Way to go!

IGNPC: There are also plenty of new items. Tell us a bit about some of the new equipment we'll be using in the game.

Jess Cliffe: In the Tour of Duty campaign and in Counter-Strike multiplayer, we've stuck to the Counter-Strike tradition of adding just a few items to keep the balance in check. Specifically, the Tour of Duty introduces the Shield Gun, Galil, and Famas rifles. In Deleted Scenes, there are a number of items added for specific types of gameplay. These include the blowtorch, radio-controlled bombs, and a fiber optic camera. Deleted Scenes also contains a few other weapons, such as the rocket launcher, which may find there way to the multiplayer game over time.


8-o
thats good, now all i have to do is keep my patience and use the cracked CZ player models!!!
