  • 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. Ready to pimp it to the world? Upload your custom fields on Xbox LIVE! to stake your reputation as an online field designer. 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 Xbox. 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. Expand

  1. The sequel is a much more thorough game than its predecessor but offers more bang for the buck.
  2. It definitely is a lot slower with more tactics than many gamers are used to unless you play a lot of Tom Clancy games, especially with the new team command options.
  3. An improvement over the original, Greg Hastings' Tournament Paintball MAX'D is sure to impress devout FPS fans.
  4. Greg Hastings' Tournament Paintball Max'd captures the intensity and excitement of paintball, and in the end it's only limited by the confines of the sport itself.
  5. Painballing gets its own video game, with smooth gameplay and decent visuals that will appeal only to fans of the sport.
  6. It tilts a bit towards the boring, but the excellent online implementation means that if you're really into paintball, this is the game for you.
  7. It's largely the same game with the bonus elements of online play, voice-commandable teammates, and a map editor. Nothing more, nothing less. [Mar 2006, p.78]

    I thought that maxed was sweet for PS2. It had all the sweet guns like the ion shocker intimidater and angels I also thought all the new gear was sweet and how you could use r1 and r2 duel finger to shoot made it even faster just like reel life and i thought that this was the best game I will ever play unless they make it virtual reality it would also be sweet if they got boards for guns in the game.

    Great game, many improvements over the first, but im still not 100% happy with the new AI. Also the graphics are the same, but gameplay is much better. Collapse

    Here are my complaints about this game The gear makes no sense any serious baller knows that by heart a spyder extra in that game cost $700 and ramps like a sonabitch where in real life it is a semi only and cost less than $100 and the trilogy is $1100 and shoots like a dm5 when in real life it is slower and costs more like mid $200 to low $300 not only that but I had many ghost balls hit me calling me out when I can't be shot out getting gogged standing backwards and many other issues it is still the best paintball game out there I just wish they could get liesencing from smart parts and Diablo so I could use a shocker or wrath also I would like to see some angels and intimidators able to be bought so I can make my character more like me, lastly I wish to see color changeable gear. What I did like was multi player, the only real addition worth the time. Field editor is fine but the control feels sloppy. Expand
