|No time to get out and play? Try these indoor games.|
While not much can compare to the real-life action that a great game of paintball can deliver, video paintball is a viable option on a rainy day when you are stuck at home wishing you could be out on there on the field. It also a good way to hone your skills and keep you in the game till you can get out there and spray some real-life paint.
Here is one that is currently published by Activision (www.Activision.com):
NPPL Championship Paintball 2009
This video game was recently released by Activision and is available for most gaming consoles. This first-person perspective brings the reality of paintball to your video screen. Ryan Greenspan of the world champion San Diego Dynasty paintball team, says, “"We've gotten to play the game quite a few times along the way, and it is definitely the best paintball game we’ve ever played. The graphics are amazing; it’s lots of fun, and super realistic. The beautiful thing is that people are going have an absolute blast playing it – from the most hardcore paintball junkies to those who might never have even tried the sport. The breadth of its appeal is huge.”
