    I have brought and installed HL2. I have access to CS:S but I would like to play the old CS 1.6 game. A friend told me I would be able to play this if I brough HL2 but I can't seem to find it? Can you help?

    no.hl2 does not include valve past catalog.
    You need to buy conditionzero to get the classic counter strike(1.6) and it costs $15=about 6-7gbp i think.
    1.6 has way better gameplay than cs source but bot that shiny graphics

    I'm not sure whether this will work, but I registered my original Half Life (bought for me soon after it's original release date) copy's serial number in steam and unlocked CS/HL it for download/use... So, if it works, buying a budget version of Half Life might be cheaper than CS:CZ.

    Get Condition Zero retail and you get it free!!! 3 games for the price of one. Theres deleted scenes in it also thats a single player counter strike.

    If you can't find CS:CZ NEW, then get Counter-Strike1: Anthology, that comes with more games than CS:CZ does, and has everything you need.

    Have a look in the Steam FAQ sticky in my sig, lots of details on there, or go to www.steampowered.com

    You can, for a ripoff price.
