NPPL Championship Paintball 2009
This game is amazing to play if you enjoy paintball. If you don't then it's probably not for you. This is one of those games that you either love or hate. Some great features it has are the controls, their simple and easy to remember. Another great feature is the Dynasty Training Tutorial. This is a big help when first playing the game it teaches you the tactics to use and when you should use them. The career mode in the game is awesome. Its pretty much like any other sports games dynasty mode. You control what your team wears and uses, who starts and who's on the bench, and how your team will play during he match. My favorite feature of the game is the dual shooting buttons. RB and RT. If you use the dual finger shooting motion you would with a real speedball marker then it feels like you're shooting a real marker. Plus it helps you lay down a lot more paint then just using 1 finger. All in all I love this game 10 outta 10 for me I don't know about you but this is my new madden.
NPPL CHAMPIONSHIP PAINTBALL 2009
this is a great paintball game it is a little bit better the greg hastings maxd the graphics are great the markers and equipment are great i dont why other people say this is a bad game maybe they dont even play paintball games. if you are lokking for a great paintball game for your xbox 360 this is the game its a little boreing at the end but its a must buy paintball game. its kind of like greg hasting if you get hit that circle thing comes up and you have to get it in thr middle you can wipe the paint off. i have noticed that there is a seperate game called woodball in the career but you never get to play it its always speed ball in the career you unlock woodball marker like the tippmann a5 or the tippmann x7 ak47 but you dont get to use them all in all its a great game and a reccommend it to eny one who is looking for a paintball game.
you people under rate this game
I spent a week after this game came out trying to find reviews on the internet and they were mixed between horrible and awesome. So I risked it and bought it and this is what I think. NPPL is not this horrible game that the other people here said it was, first of all if you dont know anything about paintball dont bother even buying this if your curious rent it if you can find it, with that said. NPPL is just like Greg Hastings maxd if not a tad bit better because you can jump over bunkers and so far as I'm playing through it there's more equipment. I also would recommend going through the tutorial stages not only to help you but to get the achievement but it will greatly help you in the game. And as for the other review saying you cant slide, dive and shoot at the same time you can. The game physics are great the bunkers and paintballs act like they would in real life. If you played Greg Hastings maxd and destroyed it id recommend playing on pro cuz the games not that hard if you know what you're doing. Now for the BAD THINGS you cant create your own character you also cant create your own team name or logo, the most you can customize is yours and your teams equipment and skills which doesn't really matter cause you want your skills maxed out. The AI even though they say it is isn't that bright. And the graphics could be better for a next gen game. Overall if you liked Greg Hastings maxd you'll like NPPL.
best game ever
This is the best game ever, i have been waiting a while for a perfect paintball game and this is the one. This game has some of the best paintball game graphics ever. The controls are great on this game. The career mode on this game is very reasonable but it can be a little sketchy. Its just not quite in depth enough for my needs. You can pick and choose your own gear and marker setup for your whole team on career mode. The interface to this game was very well. If you are a paintball player this game is very helpful in the sense that it gives you pro player tips that can come in handy on the field in the real world. This game is very elusive to your movements as you run diving into bunkers. I recommend this game for everyone who loves the sport of paintball. This is by far the best paintball game ever. I would buy it if i enjoyed paintball.
This game is fun and okay at the same time. But if you play this game play it on the hardest difficulty level because once you get the hang of planning your own personal breakout and get a hang of this game it does not present a big challenge. Once I got my strategy right with my teammates in the position thats good its almost easy on semi-pro. But thats not to say it's a bad game, just play it here and there. Don't play it constantly. Like play a match or two then put a new game in. Or if you watch paintball on tv, and doing that gets you in the mood to play a paintball game(like what happens to me once I watch a zombie movie all I want to do is kill zombies) then play this. Just dont play it long since it wont keep you on you toes about playing the next match. Now when I say the challenge is a 6 I dont mean you can just run around like a paintball rambo because if you do you will die. Take cover. It will save your life. The story is a zero because there is, well, no story. Just become a pro. That's it. Overall if you like paintball games then get it, just dont play it constantly.
a great new step toward paintball games
Ok first before I start the review I gotta say that I hope that the future will hold better paintball games. With that said, I rated this an 7 because even if it's not exactly where paintball games should be, it is amazing compared to what we have been dealt so far. Don't get me wrong, Greg Hastings was so much fun when it came out, but for a real paintballer (like me) it mad me frustrated when I could walk down the snake and shoot right across their back bunkers and simply grab their flag. This game actually requires you to count on cover from you're AI team mates and your bunker. Good overall but we defiantly need another step up before paintball is where it should be in the public eye. Activision has led the way but let's get one outta ubisoft. They have been the masters of tom clancy, let's get some pb outta them.
I was reading a few reviews and it occurred to me that many of you are the same people at paintball places all over the country we wish would leave the game completely. Someone was complaining they can't hit two buttons with two different fingers. Well, to bad get better at paintball then. That is the way true players get such a high rate of fire. Then he goes on to say that ramping can't be used in tournaments. Well, again to bad since that is true of real paintball. I wish you guys would stay away from my beloved sports and stick to dumb games like air soft where cheating is ok. As for this game, it is great in all ways. No, it doesn't have all the teams or all the equipment but welcome to the world of money. There are many companies that don't support NPPL so they are not going to let their teams advertise for an NPPL game.
Nominated for best Paintball Game
This game is the best paintball game that I have ever played. Though warning if you don't have any appreciation for paintball then you might not like it as much as a person like me who really appreciates the sport. That is probably why people gave it such a low score. Because they think its call of duty and the balls are supposed to go straight but then it would be unrealistic. ITS PAINTBALL! It is not no regular shooter where there are bullets that go straight and through walls. There is no nube toobers or grenades. Just good ol-fashioned duck and shoot. Its the best game out on the market and I think beats Greg Hastings paintball 2 the new one that came out. That game is more crappier in graphics and the running is so unrealistic. You run faster than a ferrari or porshe. Like in one second your going 50 mph. In this game its extremely realistic. You better think twice before advancing like in reall NPPL. If your a call of duty fanatic where all you do is nube toob and shoot through walls and walk to people and knife em then this is not for you. This is for people who want a game that simulates more or less how you feel when you go paintballing. So for ppl who scored this low its because they are call of duty fanatics and are spoiled by games similar to it and cant stand playing a fair shooter that doesn't tolerate cheap shots like shooting through walls. Its duck and cover system. In the game and in real life its called snapping and popping. Please excuse the grammar for this is not college or anything. Thanks and hope to see more ppl online cuz its kind of depressing how games like cod black ops annihilate games like this that have potential but are walked all over cuz it doesn't have the call of duty appeal. thanks again for reading.
Great Graphics, Great Game
i've never played paintball but this game is great for people who do and dont play it. Excellent graphics real paintball gear. I like capture the flag and elimination. Very exciting paintball action. Also, if you get shot there is a cheat meter and if you get in the meter in the green then you can wipe the paint off and keep going. And there is anoter thing that seperates this game from every other paint ball game [ in a good way :] ] YOU CAN CREATE YOUR OWN FIELD!!!!!!!!!!! The only bad thing about this game is there is no splitscreen but there is system link and online multiplayer over Xbox LIVE. Overall great paintball game with excellent graphics, Great paintball action, and Creating your own paintball field.
This game is gonna be really competitive. I can't wait for it. But here's the thing, the game does have a possibility of dying out quickly due to 'n00bs' needing turbo controllers so there gun shoots ridiculously fast. And therefore everyone will just give up. Just like Greg Hastings paintball tournament. Sad to say but very true.
