You are looking for a free first person shooter like Counter Strike right? I know a few free ones that are open-sourced and cross-platform (can be played on Windows, Mac and Linux)

OpenArena - openarena.ws
Sauerbraten - sauerbraten.org
Nexuiz - alientrap.org/nexuiz
Tremulous - tremulous.net
Alien Arena - icculus.org/alienarena/rpa
Warsow - warsow.net
Assault Cube - assault.cubers.net

Personally, I'm not a fan of first person shooters as my computer comes with low specs and a not so powerful graphic card.

Good choices, because you can play against the computer. Not sure about the others. There are a ton of free games found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_freeware_games
I found a couple of gems here that I play all the time.

i'm looking for a first person shooting like counterstrike that doesn't need internet connectivity when you're playing it. I also want realistic ones like CS I hate games with magical stuff coming out from somebody's hand and aliens, zombies etc.

There is a single-player stealth/tactics game called Hidden and Dangerous Deluxe. It was released as freeware to promote its sequel.
http://www.gamershell.com/download_3644.shtml







You take control of a special operations soldier and have to complete a variety of missions. You can alternate between each member in your squad, give commands from first person view, and map out an action plan for the units that are currently controlled by the computer. Steal weapons and ammo from the enemies you've killed to replenish your resources. There are tones of items, and an array of different vehicles at your command. Make use of distractions, bombs, and disguises as you fight your way through 9 campaigns. You have a limited number of soldiers and weapons for each campaign, so play sparingly. I really enjoyed this game, and hope you can too.
