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.

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.

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

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).

Back...Back...Back....Off the Green Monster

Amazon
16 May 2001
  • Summary: If I were you, I would give this a game a shot AT THE RENTAL STORE. This is a great game, but I dont know if its better than All Star 2002 or High Heat. There are a few set backs, such as tough fielding for unexperienced players, and there are not many balls that go into corners or gaps! Great graphics and a cool playoff setup make this exceptional... beware, rookie mode is very easy but season or playoffs in pro make this game very good.

Best out of 3

  • Summary: I have been consistently visiting ... to get a feel for games and what people think. I never thought about writing but I just had to speak up on this one. In fact, I even did some research online to check up on what professional critiques felt about this game. First of all, to all the people dumpin' on this game for one reason or another; try playing more than a dozen games while renting it before you get online and start throwing digs.

Solid Game

  • Summary: This game is better than everone says it is. Although it isn't perfect, its still a great overall baseball game. The graphics are great, and the player models look very realistic (minus the fact that all the bodies are pretty much the same size). The AI is very good, and the computer doesn't cheat at all like it usually does in other sports games.

It seems a little rushed

"thrawn169", Amazon
20 March 2001
  • Summary: Triple Play Baseball has been my favorite since the first one. I've always thought that it was the closest thing to playing baseball inside. In this version for the PS2 I've noticed a few changes 1. Graphics. Pro: Unbeleivable detail with stadiums, you can almost see individual blades of grass. The crowds actually move in this version.The facial features of the players are much improved. And the Gameplay is extremely smooth.

Triple Play-128Bit Glory?

Amazon
17 March 2001
  • Summary: I was waiting for this one for awhile...that is, a baseball game on a next generation console. I'm glad that the PS2 will be getting 4 this year...MLB2002 later this year (though 989 has sucked badly so far on the PS2) So Triple Play was the 1st out and I've played it for a couple hours now... The graphics are great, almost on par with Madden 2001.
