  • Summary: In Greg Hastings Paintball 2, players take to the field in 12 global paintball locations, each containing three to six different fields. Seven single-player game modes challenge the most experienced "ballers" to hone their skills and then test them against up to 19 others in seven different multiplayer game types. Whether playing alone or against others, Greg Hastings Paintball 2 ups the ante with game-changing weather conditions and field hazards including rain, wind and fog. While the difficulty level may have increased, so have the tools at the players' disposal as the game features an improved map editor along with the hottest new gear and weapons. When things are at their bleakest, players can even use the all-new cheat meter that lets them avoid elimination by successfully wiping away paint splatter before they're caught. Serious "ballers" can even become general manager of their own 10-player team composed of more than 100 professional and amateur paintball players. Gamers can trade players, issue commands, and use their earnings from the field to build each player's individual stats, so the overall team is that much more competitive. The better the team assembled, the more tournaments a player stands to win, providing him with added cash to buy new gear, players and skill upgrades. Expand

    Despite the time delay, Greg Hastings Paintball 2 is the same decent paintball game you've seen on the other consoles last year.

    Overall, Greg Hastings Paintball 2 is an enjoyable fast paced game that could prove to be a good time with some friends. Although the game can be a bit of a challenge and has some frustrating moments, the good manages to outweigh the bad.

    Greg Hastings Paintball 2 is made for a very specific clientele. But because the video game lacks the excitement of the real thing, it does little to expand interest for the sport outside of its core demographic. If you're someone who owns your own gear and is really into paintball, you'll appreciate having a game dedicated to your sport. Everyone else, however, should save their $20 for something else.

    Greg Hastings Paintball 2 is probably best played by people who have a deep love for the sport. If you are looking for just another FPS, there are far superior titles out there for you. The poor design of the game really brings it down, and even with such a deep level of customization, it will be hard for anyone who doesn't like Paintballing to get anything out of this.
