Summary: this game is terrible. its way to easy to be realistic. im hitting hrs w/ my leadoff hitters and 9th hitters. you cant put together a REALISTIC game. baseball is a game of strategy and patience, and the score is like 20 to 17.
Summary: This game is why I bought my PS2. The graphics are incredible. The strategies that you can execute in the field and at bat are very lifelike. The movement of the players and the reaction of the ball in different stadiums is so real that its scary. With that said, there are a few things that bother me about this game: 1) In the game, the home team takes the 3rd base dugout in every stadium. What's up with that? 2) Where are the injuries??
Summary: I have had this game for a while let me tell you Ive also have high heat and all star baseball and triple play is better than those two no matter what anybody says those two are not better. The graphics on triple play are better stadium wise and player wise.My only complaint is I think the graphics could be better and the players heads are too big just like everybody else has said.
Summary: This is the third installment of the Triple Play series that I have owned. Each one has been a bit better than the previous year. Since it is such a solid product, I am only going to focus on the negatives. My short list should really serve to reveal how hard it is to find flaws in this game. First, I found the levels of play a bit unbalanced. The "Rookie" level is, as intended, very easy. The problem comes between the two top levels.
Summary: I game is good, but it needs to be realistic. True too life. There have to be injurys. There has to be something were you can give a player a day off. Like catchers and pitchers need at least 3 days off. and so on and so on?
Summary: I remember my first year in the Triple Play series, watching wide-eyed as the intro showed Reggie Jackson whiffing on a nasty breaking pitch as the commentator reminds us how Uncle Charlie was a wicked, wicked relative. It would make sense, then, that to showcase Bob Costas's talent for setting the stage, yet another montage, possibly including a Joe-D to Derek Jeter or Walter Johnson/Randy Johnson contrast, would kick things off.
Summary: This game makes you feel like your at the actual game. When you play a season it's like going to every major league baseball game every day. If you play a homerun derby it feels like your one of the fans as during a single game or season game. When you buy this think about it before buying this game. When I got this game I thought it would stink but it's better than Triple Play 2001 because the players look more realstic.
Summary: This game is definitely addicting. The graphics and gameplay are really awesome. The most annoying parts of the game are the music, the fact that home run derby is way too easy, and that the easiest level is too easy and the hardest level is to hard. Playing the pro (middle) level is just about right. I win some games and lose some games. It's a bit hard on the pro level to strike people out, but it can be done. One truly great mode to play is human vs. human.
Summary: If you are considering the purchase of Triple Play from a video/arcade game perspective and have a cursory understanding of baseball, you will probably find it enjoyable . . . However, if you appreciate the nuances and strategy involved in the actual game and you're looking for realistic gameplay and outcomes, then, depsite its misgivings, your only choice is High Heat - as evidenced by the (nearly obsessive) web communities dedicated to the discussion and development of...
