    The only thing that they share is the First Person Shooter type of game. The physics of CS are way different from the physics of CoD. You can aim down all sights in CoD, and only a few in CS. You can spray n prey in CoD, but if you do that in CS, you would die immediately because it takes actual skill to be good at CS. It takes skill because it's a tactical FPS, whereas CoD is just an FPS (or TPS is you are playing a certain game mode.)

    Fantastic predecessor to CS, kept alive by the community. The class based combat keeps the game fresh.
