Greg Hastings' Tournament Paintball Max'd features paintball action in a variety of single- and multiplayer instances. At the start of the game, players can diagram the movements of teammates, order them to hold or retreat in certain situations, and direct them to concentrate fire on certain key targets, allowing even lone players to simulate the teamwork required for victory. As in the original game, players join the battle in virtual arenas based on real-life paintball fields.
Numerous opposing teams await, including many based on real-life paintball teams that feature such celebrities of the sport as Rocky Cagnoni, Greg Hastings, Keely Watson, and more. Game modes should be familiar to most first-person shooter fans, and include online multiplayer versions of "Elimination," "Capture the Flag," and "Center Flag" for up to 14 players, offline split-screen play with four friends, or single-player action in career mode.
In career mode, gamers can enter 29 different tournaments featuring such locations as Texas and Cambodia, and earn cash for upgrades that include over 160 options for licensed gear including jerseys, goggles, hoppers, harnesses, and shoes. Players will begin as a rookie and attempt to move up the ranks from novice to pro by winning matches that gradually increase in difficulty. Those who prefer playing with friends can issue commands and discuss strategy by using a headset.
If the courses get too familiar, gamers can create their own paintball gauntlet by using the "Field Editor." Greg Hastings' Tournament Paintball Max'd includes a soundtrack with songs by Limp Bizkit and B-real. ~ Gracie Leach, All Game Guide
