Greg Hastings' Paintball 2
So bad it's good
There are some games in this world that are so bad that they're good (Earth Defense Force, 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand) 'Greg Hasting's Paintball 2' is one of them.
The graphics are sub par, the sound is shoddy, hit detection is all over the place...but its SO FUN! There are 62 maps to play on, aiming and movement are tight. and the fact the Greg himself helped pay for the production of the game makes it even more charming.
Keep in mind that this is not up to par with 'Battlefield 4' or 'Killzone 3' AT ALL.
But it harkens back to the days of 'Perfect Dark' and 'Goldeneye 007'.
It's just FUN to play with your friends in the same room and have a laugh.
That's what makes this not-very-good game worth buying.
this game is deff not what i expected, for starters the realism of this game is very far out. But i believe it is a step above what nppl 09 was so they are moving in the right direction. THE BAD: speedball matches go in like 1 min. you really do not even need a pack because more than half the time you will not even use a hopper. I was in division 1 and the best gun available to me was a spyder electra, how many d1 teams you see running around sponsored by spyder? If you are the last one left you can just sit there and look at the flag and sure enough they will come running towards it all trying one at a time to grab it making 5 v 1's simple. Graphics are not the best either but thats not a main concern. THE GOOD: i love that they put xball matches into this game, it contributed to authenticity of paintball. And i must admit i even like the woodsball even tho the computer ai just run around in circles the whole time. Other than that noting, i give this game a 4/10 and thats just because all the hype that was involved with it.
Why do people think it's so bad?
for paintball fans and fps fans, this game is awesome. the controls in some aspects are better than cod. you can slide and dive, and also the left trigger makes you pop out from cover. There is a huge selection of paintball guns and gear, also there's real paintball fields are from real places. They have Pev's paintball, which is awesome because I go to play there every once in a while. The graphics are just okay, the players look a little chunky, but it's realistic how your mask gets covered in paint spray when a paintball pops near you. Also, it's cool that they incorporated a double trigger by using the RB button as an alternate firing button. Online is very fun also. It's cool how they made a way for you to cheat by wiping the paint off yourself. Overall, it's one of the best games I've ever played.
very good game
pretty good game. if youare a newcomer or a expert at paintball this game is perfect for you. I got stuck on one level where your rivals take your equipment and you have to use rental gear. they use real guns so it is more realistick. the other good thing is if you actually go paintballing and you like one of the markers/barrels/hoppers/pistols/protective gear/air tanks. in woods ball it feels like call of duty. I recomend this for players thet want a shooter but they cant get M rated titles.
I really enjoyed this game especially the multiplayer.
Hmmmm, was not a favorite
This game, did not impress me, but it is perfect for kids and party gamers. If you are used to COD, or other hardcore FPS games, I do NOT recommend this, if you are new to FPS games, get this. This is perfect for kids that are new to Xbox or cannot play rated M games.
Do not overlook the game just cause you dont play!
Just cause you dont play paintball does not mean you cannot enjoy this game. It is a fun, splitscreen game. You will spend hours with your bro or friend battling it out on various fields and tournaments around the world! The online is competitive and addictive, you will always be wishing for just one more elimination or one more chance to get back at the other player. Single player is lengthy and will take a good deal of time. It is very fun though! You can choose the path you take as you go down woodsball, speedball, or rec ball ladder. Tons of tourneys and you can build your team of players from all other leagues. You earn money from tourneys to get gear. There is tons of gear too choose from! Real top brand paintball gear. The gameplay is fairly good... lasting appeal... if you give this game a chance there is NO REASON NOT TO LOVE THIS GAME!
this is the best paintball game by far! i love it. i cant stop playing it. it is so addicting. Every paintball lovers NEEDS this game. i have had it for 2-3 weeks so far and i havent stopped playing it. LOVE THIS GAME!!!!
pretty good, dobt need to play paintball to like
First off ignore the people That said its horrible.cause they obvisouly don't know that the Greg paid for a lot of this out of his own pocket. With very little help from paintball companies, so obviously He can't afford big name companies to make it! If you actually read the tips and do the tutorials in the game it'll make you better in the game and better at it in real life since the tutorials are from actual pro players clinics that they have at a lot of local fields
Addicting game with a few problems.
This is a fun game, with lots of weapons, gear, and skills, with amazingly good game play and intricate, varied maps making for a good time. However, it is slow sometimes and the online leaves a lot to be desired.
