This game is THE only paintball video game worth playing, also it is very much worth renting or buying because it is like a real game of paintball. I used to play paintball all the time with my friends however our local field closed and we all have been busy on the weekends. I saw this game and noticed it was made by activision and by paintball pros, and fans. The game has a realistic feel with the zapper( which I HIGHLY recommend), and everything about the game is as close to the real thing other than going out to your local field and playing. The career is interesting and unlocks many diverse REAL pieces of equipment! Overall the game play is smooth, real and exciting, you feel as if your outside running, popping and diving. Don't let the controls let you down at first it takes some time to get used to, I recommend the training drills, they really help. This game has everything a real paintball game has, so I practice drills and strategies so when I go on the field around once a month I can show off. This game is great and by now you've fallen asleep or stopped reading, but I thank you for reading and hope you enjoy the game.

This is definitely a game I enjoyed. Maybe thats because I like to play paintball. Now, no game-no matter how realistic-will EVER replace the real thing, but NPPLCP-09 is a good attempt.
For the Wii, it definitely mimics the real thing very well, with tilting the remote to the side to look around bunkers, snap shooting, sliding, crawling, diving, all aspects of the real thing are there. As good as this game is I think it can be taken that extra mile. It really needs to have detailed custom character creator, like some of the old Tony Hawk games. That way you can put yourself right in the game, without being limited to selecting a handful of faces, skills, team colors, etc. Its also a little too hard to earn skill points and I think the field creator could be simplified a little, not thats its VERY versatile as is.
I know its NPPL but I really wanted to see a woods field. There are plenty of fields that would love to be featured in a video game, such as Oklahoma D-Day, The Fun Farm, Conders, Open Range, Asylum, and MANY others all over the country. After all, paintball was born in the woods. Maybe if this game gains enough popularity other leagues like XPSL will join in and the game could simply be called "Championship Paintball 2010." (hint-hint game makers) The game of paintball is riddled with competition of coarse, but paintball is meant to be just as entertaining as it is competitive. So lets see some woodsball, huh?
I give this game an 8/10. If you don't have an indoor field near you, you may want to buy this game for the cold winter months, or Wednesday night anytime of the year! This verson of NPPLCP may not become your personal favorite shooter, but its definately worth your time, even if you play alot in real life!

I was looking forward to a nice shooting game but this one isn't it. I only lasted a few seconds in the training stages and I got frustrated cause it was hard to control the gun. It doesn't tell you right away which controls to use either.
