If you are sick of all that blood that seems to flood all of today’s shooters (and which, to be honest, makes sense since bullets and humans or monsters are involved) you might find a peaceful alternative in the newly title announced by Activision – NPPL Championship Paintball 2009. As the title subtly suggests, you’ll put your plasma rifle away for this one and instead test your balls against the others, on Xbox 360, PS3, PS2 and Wii consoles.
Being an official game of the National Professional Paintball League, it will feature all sorts of official stuff, from gear to locations and, probably, players. You can become a real paintball legend if you opt for the career mode, or you can just go online and bust a sticky shot against your friends.
“NPPL Championship Paintball 2009 captures the raw intensity of hardcore paintball in this new breed of extreme sports / first person action entertainment,” said Dave Oxford, Activision. “The game represents our ongoing commitment to the sport and our goal to create the most realistic, competitive experience possible.”
And although the game doesn’t seem as cool as a new COD title, for example, Activision promises we’ll be put under its spell if we give it a shot. I know I will.
