Conclusion: I give this game a solid overall score because it's a very entertaining baseball arcade experience. I have played all three PS2 baseball games and TP is by far the most entertaining in terms of scoring a lot of runs, racking up a lot of strikeouts, and looking at eye candy.
Excerpt: For the most part this year, I have been very impressed with EA Sports' graphics. That is, until I played Triple Play Baseball . I haven't seen graphics this generic since I played baseball games on my Sega Genesis.

Conclusion: Let's start with the most important building block, the game play. For the most part it is very stable, the only times of slow down for scanning is in natural gaps in play and then it is only momentary (i.e. the moment before a batter steps into the box or a natural breath before the next pitch).
Excerpt: To this date, games based on America's favorite past-time still don't get the recognition that they deserve. Games like Triple Play and All-Star Baseball have received their fair share of good reviews in the past on the Playstation and N64, but their sales weren't incredible.
Conclusion: It's more of the same for the Triple Play franchise. The latest version of the game suffers from a poor control scheme and sketchy fielding. This arcade title lacks the depth of simulation-based baseball games and ultimately strikes out.
