Filtered Thoughts
     If you have been following my blog for a while now, you might remember that I received the Wii version of Greg Hastings Paintball 2, as well as the PS3 version of the game, from Majesco.
     I provided coverage for the game, and didn't do the typical "review" style with it, but instead did several video features and write-ups on the game over the last 10 months.
     If you are interested in Greg Hastings Paintball 2, but perhaps aren't sure if the game has enough features and would be of interest to you, I put together an "indepth" video of the game back in May, and you can watch it below:


     As for the reported game-play data, seeing Greg Hastings Paintball 2 debut in under a year I think is pretty good for the game, especially considering it had very little advertising outside of online outlets.  I think this should continue to show developers that there is a FPS audience on the Wii, and hopefully this will show Majesco that if there is another Greg Hastings Paintball game is released , a little bit more advertising might help the game go further.

     If any of you own Greg Hastings Paintball 2 on the Wii, or the PS3, feel free to add my code/name and let me know if you want to play online.

  1. Do the 9 hours and 37 minutes represent the time it takes to go through the game? What are your play times?

    Ah, thanks for asking! I forgot to include my game-play hours as shown on the Nintendo Channel, and I'll get those up.

    As for the 9 Hours 37 Minutes that reflects how long the "average" play-time is so far for the game.
    So most people that own it are playing the game for at least 9 hours, but my play-time through the game's Career mode was actually between 15-20 hours I believe.

    Thanks for checking in and asking about my play-times, I'll try to get them updated ASAP.
