  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. Those who like paintball should find it amusing for a while, especially online.
  5. If you can look past the dated presentation you'll find a suprisingly fun, fast-paced game of paintball in Max'd.
  6. 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.
  7. 65
    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.
  8. 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?
