    This is the second match of the Online Shooter Showdown. If a tiebreaker is not needed, voting for this match will end on March 21, 2009 at 12:01 AM Central.

    Unlike MMORPG Showdown 3, voting in this thread will have a large say in determining the winning because each review score in the Review Directory will be multiplied by the percentage of votes received here. For example, a game that had a 9 in the Review Directory and won all of the votes here would have an overall score of 9. If a game had a 9 in the review directory but tied here, that game would have an overall score of 4.5 because it only won 50% of the vote. In the event of an overall tie, voting will be extended by one day.

    I vote Cross Fire even though Counter-Strike is probably the better shooter. If your a hardcore shooter fan you can't get better than Counter-Strike but if your fairly new to shooters or aren't that great I wouldn't recommend it. The matches aren't setup that well for newbies and it can feel overwhelming, often you join a match full of pros and get destroyed which isn't fun at all.

    I haven't played Cross Fire in a while so idk how much it's changed since beta and tbh I don't really remember much from beta but I do know it's a lot easier for newbies to find "easy" matches while still catering to the core players.

    All in all both games are great I just think Cross Fire caters better to everyone overall than Counter-Strike.

    Oh Jesus. Hard match up. Good match up. I don't know. CS:S Just because it's been out much longer. CF has so many "Noobs" playing in pubs it's ridiculous. I came in a game, we were losing 6-12..they needed 1 win. I clutched every single game from 8-12 for us. We won 13-12. I went 34-2. xD

    You said it! Tough as hell...... I choose CF because of ghost mode.

    Definately a hard match-up. Have to go with CS:S because of the better graphics, better game types, and overall just a blast to play.

    Crossfire, because of its innovative ghost mode.

    Source just got better graphics, it didn't add to 1.6 at all.

    Exactly weehut, it was designed as 1.6 built on half-life 2's engine, it's the same game, with better graphics, which is good.

    Close! I chose Counterstrike because Crossfire is too new.

    Ok, heres how it is CS: Source is probably one of the best FPS's i have played. It really has no hackers, its versatile (I.E. Zombie source, fun maps, etc...), and it doesn't make you play for 3 hours just to save up enough money to get a Deagle, BUT it also doesn't just give weapons to you, so its challenging yet fun.

    @Scarecrow, then WHY would people rate it better than 1.6? I really don't get it.

    @Inteego, all Source did was bring in better graphics. 1.6 was the revolutionizing FPS game, and they both have NUMEROUS hackers. I haven't played a single game in my 6 years that there wasn't some wall hacker or something playing as well.

    Did Cross fire really deserve to beat Counterstrike? I am not so sure....
