I played the game, its true counter-strike, everything from the sensation, the adrenaline, the smell, heck, even the same angst teens, err, men.. if you could call them that. In less than a few minutes I felt completely at home.
It felt more like a graphical update than a successor, as for improvements over cs:s, i didn't notice anything that stood out of the way to even mention it.
Graphically-wise, I didn't feel that it's that great, sure lots of details have been added, but it still feels like playing a boxy source game. The models look excellent, the guns look excellent, the sound is great, the maps, not much to cheer. de_dust2 & cs_offce look so similar to the previous version that I almost mistook office for the original.
have to tweak my settings as I noticed my computer is not up to par to output 60+ fps, but still, congrats to Valve for keeping the system requirements reasonable for most people.
As for the price, its well worth it, the game adds enough to warrant the 15 dollar price, and as you know, Valve has a streak of adding more free content down the line.
