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.
Summary: I have never been a fan of this series but not because I have some bias towards EA. (I like Madden and other cool EA games). Wanting a good baseball game for my overrated PS2 system, I gave this game a shot. First of all, the one good thing: the graphics. I think it has the best graphics out of the three PS2 baseball games. Now the bad: If you want a 1-P game, this game may suit your need if you just want to smash home-runs after another.
Summary: Triple Play is a horrible game in almost every sence.The batting is way to easy, you'll find that even with the worst hitter on your team you can easily hit above .400. I like simulation type sports games that actually have reasonable stats and games that are realistic. The games are high scoring events were you might score 13 and the cpu will score 10. Homeruns come way to easy in this game and a guy like Pokey Reese can hit just as many homeruns as Griffey.
Summary: Personally I am one of the biggest baseball fans there is, and nothing satisfies my need to constantly study the game or watch more than a good baseball video game. I had a playstation 2 originally and loved the Triple Play series, but this game is just not the same. First of all, I would like to say the graphics truly are excellent, and the player models are extremely real, the biggest problems I have with it are the AI and the game play.
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.
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.
Summary: The Good: The game has good graphics, and is somewhat fun to play, if you are interested in mounting massive offensive statistics...its pretty hard to lose. I lost the first game I played, and have now one the next 38. The Bad: The Commentary. The comments are good, except they come at the wrong time. Things like "A great Hit by *", on a ground ball to second. "That was a routine play" on a ball pulled back from over the wall.
Summary: I've been playing Triple Play Baseball since the 1998 edition. Each year as baseball season rolls around, I've been duped (yes, duped) into buying the latest edition of Triple Play baseball. Never again. Now, let me say this: if you're not a true, diehard fan of the national pastime, if you don't get goosebumps at the conclusion of the of the Star Spangled Banner, if the thought of a dog and a beer and the pastoral pleasures of a 2-1 pitchers' duel don't appeal to you,...
Summary: Always a fan of the Triple Play, I was excited to get the new game in. However, with all the power of the PS2, I wonder why the game has 'lost' features found in the previous PS1 version. - No need to warm up pitchers. Realize this is arcade style play, but every game has this feature. - No runner control at all. I can't control the lead my baserunners take in any manner - just plain stupid.
