  • Summary: Build Your Field – Design and play your own custom fields with the Field Editor. Selecting from three field sizes, thirty-seven different object/bunker types, and ten object textures/skins just gets you started. Now feature yourself in your own MAX’D world by placing your bunkers in an almost infinite number of positions and layouts on the field. You’re the MAX’D designer, and the field is your gaming universe. Take the opportunity to angle your bunkers using the Rotate feature, tap the Mirror feature for the quick ability to add bunker symmetry to both sides of the field, and use the Size Editor to bring each bunker to your desired scale. Control Your Team – Mastermind your teammates’ movements at the start of the game with the ground-breaking FPS feature – Breakout Manager. You can direct your AI teammates to break for specific bunkers, select teammates to ether run or shoot, and identify the critical Sweet Spot for your Break Shooters to target the other team and take them out early. Split Screen and Co-Op – Play up to four players on the same PS2. Career Mode Co-Op lets you join with friends to bust up the pros. Or make them bow to your skills first-hand by taking them on head-to-head. [Activision] Expand

  1. Greg Hastings’ Tournament Paintball MAX’D made me do three things that I didn’t expect when I slid it into the PS2. First, I found myself watching some tournament paintball on ESPN2 last weekend. Second, I started the ball rolling on getting my softball team to sign on for a pre-season paintball outing in March of next year. And finally, I kept playing the game after I had enough time in to write my review.
  2. If you've played paintball in the past -- particularly in a tournament situation -- you may find even more to love here than most.
  3. If you heard of Greg Hastings Tournament Paintball MAX'D on the Xbox last year and couldn’t wait to play it on the PS2, this is your chance. For everyone else, there are better ways to spend $40.
  4. A lot of fun - that is if deathmatch stye gaming is your bag. Obviously, those looking for any semblance of a story should look elsewhere.
  5. If you can look past the dated presentation you'll find a suprisingly fun, fast-paced game of paintball in Max'd.

    You'll definitely want to play online, but it's a real pain with a PS2. Stick to the Xbox version of you're really committed to playing this one.
  7. The biggest head-scratcher about GHTPM is this: why did it take a whole year to get it ported from the Xbox version? But only slightly less perplexing is why, rather than spending a few hours twiddling the sticks of a PS2 controller, most of the game's target audience wouldn't instead heave the ol' butt out of its couch groove and go play some real paintball?

    Very good game. It takes a couple hours to master the controls, but after you get them down, your set to go.

    This game is totally wicked, I first played it at my friends and I'm like I got to have it. This game got me into the sport and now I know some positions etc. It took me awhile to figure out and now I'm like so pro. Expand
