This review is a a "Yes" simply because the good can outway the bad. I'll start with the bad though.
Cons:
1. Competitive can get old and fast.
If you're only playing competitive, it'll get really boring really quick. Especially with how the community can be sometimes. I advice people to jump into community servers once in a bit just to make sure it stays fresh.

2. The community can be the most toxic thing about this game.
As with any competitive game that is almost solely multiplayer, the community can be and usually is very toxic. This doesn't go for everyone but if you don't clutch a round and you have a bad team, expect some real ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s.

3. If you're having a bad day, competitive is not a good stress reliever.
Seriously, if you're looking to sit back and have some real fun, don't play competitive. Go play something else. Look up jailbreak or surf. Those can be a lot of fun when the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s aren't running around.

Now that we have that out of the way. Let's talk about the pros.
1. When you do meet nice people, they're usually fun to play with.
Like I said before, the entire community isn't toxic. Just a large amount of it. You can find and meet some really great people in CS. Just don't think everyone is fun loving and positive.

2. The community servers can be some really great fun.
I've spent a lot of my hours surfing and playing other community servers. They're a lot of fun and you can usually find the fun loving players on those servers.

3. Learning the game is great.
Finding out the spray patterns of all the weapons, watching competitive streams, and playing each map individually can be a lot of fun. Some maps are really hard to learn but don't give up right away. Becoming good at maps other than Dust 2 can really give you the edge.

4. So many ways to play.
You can be the guy who always rushes and gets crazy kills, or you can be the guy who picks off people who rush with an AWP. You can also be the guy who knows how to use both strategies to his advantage. The point is, you can play how you want to play.

I'm sure I'll have more points someday and I'll update this but one final note, don't be annoying when you start. When you die, stop talking through the microphone and only make important callouts and tell your team how much damage you did to the enemy. Also, T is to talk to everyone through text chat. Y is to talk to your team.
