I also really liked the non-cluttered maps of the older classic FPS shooters.
I actually think it's rather good. I didn't feel "non-fragile" in any of the CS games though. The main change I've noticed is the decreased size of the hitboxes compared to Source. I no longer feel like I'm getting headshots when I hit a guy's leg. Sure, the models are bigger than they were in 1.6 and probably somewhat similar to the ones in Source, but the hitboxes are way smaller, which makes for a better experience in my opinion. I've noticed how all the Source players are raving on in the chats about how messed up the recoil and aim is where as the 1.6 don't seem to be bothered.
Sadly, the non-cluttered maps are a dying breed. I find that the better the graphics get the harder it is to distinguish between scenery and enemy. Sure, that might be realistic, but it doesn't make for a great gaming experience imo. GO obviously has great graphics, but they try to compensate by adding fog making it easier to pinpoint enemies at a distance. They're changing the amount quite a bit from patch to patch, but I have a feeling it's going to work out great in the end.
Also, what I really like is that they've made a "competitive" version of Dust_2 without too many annoying objects and gimmicks. I never cared much for those and I'd much rather stay focused on pwning n00bs than admiring the detailed graphics of the surrounding buildings and such.

I believe the goal was to achieve the 1.6 feel with GO. I'm definitely feeling more at home than I ever did in Source. Now if they'd just release Aztec already I'd be one happy guy.
Hang in there, I believe they started giving out a lot of keys with the recent patches. Not many people we're playing when I first got mine, and playing bots isn't all that much fun. I was lucky enough to get invited by some friends who are all hardcore CS gamers.
