Avoid this game at all costs! jeremy strope (126) unrated
It is a scientific fact that this is the worst First-Person Shooter ever made in the history of the universe. Jimmy Sherrill (8) unrated

Don’t buy this game. Even though it sells for $19.99, which is usually a bargain for new games, in this case they’re asking ten dollars too much. If your heart is really set on buying this, go to the local used software store first; you’re bound to find a pile of Extreme Paintbrawl CDs to choose from. The graphics are outdated, the controls are horrendous, the crashes are frequent and the audio is terrible.

EXTREME PAINTBRAWL has it all—bugs, crashes, cheesy graphics, worthless Al, and a poorly designed interface. If paintball’s your bag, then play the real thing and forget about buying this dud.

Extreme PaintBrawl is a disappointment. The graphics engine was impressive over two years ago, and just looks dated today. The single player mode is reminiscent of a "bot" game, but with weak AI. Bottom Line: Save your money.

To make matters worse, Extreme Paintbrawl is, if anything, extremely buggy, crashing more times than I care to remember whenever one of my warriors was hit. At times, it also appeared as if splotches of paint were hanging in midair, waiting for someone to just walk into them. Frankly, I can't help but wonder how this game ever passed its beta test. All things considered, Extreme Paintbrawl is perhaps one of the worst games I've seen in years, as much out of touch with reality as it is out of step with the gaming world at large.

This is one of those rare games that gets it all wrong. There's a group dedicated to destroying every Bay City Rollers album in existence-we'd all sleep better if someone were to do the same for Extreme PaintBrawl.

IGN
Extreme PaintBrawl, touted as 'The 1st Non-Violent 3D Shooter' (wait . . . isn't non-violent shooter an oxymoron?), fails the basic premise of any game: it's not fun. It's actually pretty rare that we run across a game this bad ... I'd rather run over it, and I'd definitely back up just to make sure it was totally destroyed.

All in all, the only thing eXtreme about this game is the eXtreme amount of raw torture it puts you through before you finally smack the uninstall button and take it back to the store (which, pray to god, has a forgiving return policy). If PC paintball is what you crave, head onto the Internet and point your browser towards one of the readily available Quake mods available. But whatever you do, stay the hell away from this.
