Paintball is back with Greg Hasting Paintball 2, this has been the best franchise for a Paintball game and they have kept it going strong and added more and more features to the game for more choices, more customization and getting the player more involved than ever!

The most successful name in paintball—Greg Hastings—has packed a ton of new features into his PlayStation Network game debut.

• PlayStation Move motion controller support: Make precise shots in the thick of battle with the Move motion controller.

 

 

Now this is Playstation “Move” enabled, we just with that they would decide to release it on Xbox 360 as well, maybe huh? The gameplay is there and keeps the player active and entertained although the graphics do lack for a Playstation 3 game, you have to remember it is a PSN download game so there is only so much that you can pack into a game with the amount of space that PSN allows you to put up. If you can get past the graphics issue than the game itself is perfect.

 

 

With running, driving behind bunkers and trying to pick off the other team you strive to become the best. You get to also fully customize your players outfit and look. Credit also can be given for the map layouts and designs. Each map has just the right amount of cover (bunkers) for the player to hide behind to figure and plan out a strategy to each map. And as well you can create and build your very own map and place cover were you would like and give it a try on or offline.

 

 

The customization is purely amazing, if you’re a hard core paintball fan than you know the difference between going into a match with the right set up. You get to build your own team, outfit them the way you see best and as the game goes on you can purchase new equipment and upgrade gear, C02 tanks and Markers. You can even swap out the equipment for every match. Sadly though, the game does let you yell out commands to your team to try and strategist to win, but in a fast paced match with paintball’s flying around and a little moving space this feature was hardly used, but it is there for the players that want complete control over the team.

 

 

All in all Greg Hastings Paintball 2 is a fun game and hours of play in it. We do wish as we said it was multi-platform. The load times are amazingly fast and seems to be almost no waiting at all between multi-player or career mode. The $19.99 price tag seems to justify the amount of game you get, but we think if it was $14.99 it may attract new players to try it out. We hope this is a new beginning for the Greg Hastings Paintball games and they learn from a few things in the game.

Game 2 Gamer’s Final Score 3 / 5
