Easy, but so what

Kevin W "pacers721", Amazon

  • Summary: I really liked this game. It's true, this game is pretty easy once you get used to it. You can hit up to 8 home runs in a 9 inning rookie game, but not always. So what if this game is easy, it's still tons of fun. It's true, it's unrealistic, but not to unrealistic. It's like NFL Blitz, easy but fun. What I really enjoy is hitting homeruns (which is really cool) and trying to throw no hitters with my pitchers.

So many glitches and NO FRANCHISE!!!

  • Summary: Well, let my start by saying this game should not be bought by anyone at any price. The game play is completely unrealistic. For some reason, it's easier to get a hit off of Pedro or the Rocket than off of some loser like Pettitte. You can NEVER walk, making it less fun, and there is no way to bunt for a base hit. You can't move in the batter's box without starting the runners sometimes thanks to the direction you move, and occasionally the game freezes up.

Best baseball game to date

  • Summary: Triple play just keeps getting better! Could take a few pointers from All Star Baseball 2003, whose players look so much like the real ones. Would be nice if you had old school uniforms,players,and stadiums, but overall the best one yet. It's a lot easier to hit, which is a lot more than I can say for ASB2003, and High Heat. If I want to play a game where it's hard to hit I'll go join a real league!

I like it...

  • Summary: Triple Play Baseball is a fun game that has a few problems with its realism. The main problem I have noticed(and everybody else who likes pitching duels has noticed too) is the game is definatly too hitting oriented (I once hit 5 home runs in an inning after the other team hit 2 or 3 off of me). The only way to reduce the incredible home run and hit totals is to move up the difficulty level.

You might like the game if...

  • Summary: If you like homeruns and want a game with good graphics and really corny gameplay, get Triple Play. If you want a realistic baseball game, get All Star Baseball or High Heat Baseball. Triple Play has better graphics, but there's too many homeruns and it makes the game boring. When you hit the ball, it sounds like a rocket taking off. But if you just like homeruns and you don't care if the game feels real, get Triple Play. It all depends on what you want....

Pretty good

Amazon

  • Summary: This game is pretty good. It has decent graphics and pretty good announcing, it is very similar to the other Triple Play games. Home runs are very easy to hit and striking out the computer is very easy as well. There are also a couple of flaws, for example, if you throw a knuckleball about one inch high of the strike zone, it will be called a strike, and it is physically impossible to hit-- otherwise, a fun, good game

Triple play is a Triple Waste

Stephen P. Weaver "clerkman", Amazon
3 August 2001
  • Summary: I bought this game looking for a good baseball game to play. First off I popped it in and and the graphics were pretty good. The interface with the seasons and trading players needs work, it just lets you get the players you want, but it does say "Thats not a fair trade."????? Okay then I got into the game. The graphics were good. Thats where my praise ends. The Announcing is terrible, I can't stand it.

Not Realistic

pcolon619, Amazon
26 June 2001
  • Summary: Every other hit seems to be a home run. You put the batting icon where the ball is going to be and the result is a home run. Slow motion for a foul ball. The fielders are hard to move. I can't seem to get them in position to catch a ball. When a fielder does catch a ball, they are not quick to get it to the appropriate fielder...firt baseman, cut off man, etc. When pitching... if the batter takes practice swings...the pitcher cannot start his windup.

Loafing.

allan wai, Amazon

  • Summary: When you swing the bat, your player disappears. The graphics are loafin'. This game seems rushed and underdeveloped, and the gameplay is not compelling. Especially in light of the excellence you expect from EA based on Madden. I would avoid this game as you will ultimately be disappointed; wait for the next installment. Wiffle ball is way more fun.

Excellent for first time players

  • Summary: i play baseball and understand the rules of the game, but i have never cared to watch games on TV. I didnt know who any of the players were (except a few of my hometown yankees) or their stats or anything. and i have only played one other PS1 baseball game before, but only briefly. this game game me a better understanding and appreciation of the teams, players, stadiums, player stats (assuming they're somewhat accurate).
