The graphics certainly aren't anything special anymore, but then nobody has really cared much about the graphics in CS. It's the gameplay that makes it so popular. Nothing else has yet come close. I played SOF2 for a while, hoping it might be a CS-killer. It fell quite short. As did Global Operations, another game touted as a CS-killer. Sooner or later someone will make a game with better (or at least as good) gameplay than CS. It just hasn't happened yet.
