The coverart for NPPL Championship Paintball 2009.
If you’re a fan of paintball but don’t want to have to go and wash all the splatter marks off your shirt, then sitting down in front of a television and playing a paintball game on your Xbox 360 console may be the better alternative. Unfortunately for paintball video game fans, the selection of that genre’s games that play on the Xbox 360 is rather limited.
NPPL Championship Paintball
NPPL Championship Paintball 2009, which is pictured above, is the only paintball game that has been developed and is currently available for the Xbox 360. This game, according to Gamespot.com, features over 35 courses for players to traverse.
The game didn’t receive high marks from the critics, rating just a 4.1 on Gamespot’s reviews, but players and fans have been kinder, giving it a 7.6 rating.
Greg Hastings Tournament Paintball
While Greg Hastings Tournament Paintball was originally developed for play on the Xbox console, backwards compatibility will allow players to play in on their 360.
This game received great reviews from both players and critics alike. According to the Gamespot page devoted to the title, Greg Hastings Tournament Paintball earned a mark of 7.5 from the critics and an 8.2 from the players and fans.
Splat Renegade Paintball
The only other title that is compatible with the Xbox 360 also comes from the original Xbox console. Splat Renegade Paintball tried to pick up where the popularity of Greg Hastings Tournament Paintball left off. However, the game’s poor graphics and poor critic and player ratings didn’t bode well for the title.
Gamespot’s critics gave Splat Renegade Paintball a 5.0 for a rating, while players and fans could only muster a 6.2 for the game.
