2.0 out of 5 stars The best baseball game this year is still poor March 19, 2002
By A Customer
I've played High Heat, All Star and Triple Play for the PS2, and Triple Play is the best of all three. That said, it has some serious shortcomings.
I'll begin with the positives. The stadium graphics in TP are the best of the baseball games, and the fielding is the most fluid. It is fast-paced without being too arcady-not easy to do with a baseball game. The draft continues to be a great feature.
But some of the best features of previous Triple Play editions continue to be neglected in recent years. There are no injuries. Any position player can play all 162 regular season games without fatigue, and thus there is no reward for having a deep roster. Pitchers recover from throwing to full strength after two off days. A 50 win season is highly possible for a good pitcher if you juggle your rotation. Though the fielding is the best of available baseball games, players tend to hold onto the ball when quick throws are necessary-many potential double plays go for naught. The AI is poor. Computer batters will consistently swing at out-of-the-zone pitches, but have no trouble making solid contact on any strike. I have yet to see a called third strike. Stealing bases is too easy. The trade feature is pathetic. Any player for any player is the rule... trade your utility infielder for Ivan Rodriguez. Not even a 'this trade is deemed unfair... proceed anyway?' comes up to give a guilty conscience.
EA should include some of the features from their best sports game (Madden) that make it so much fun. Franchise mode, multiple player trades, and created teams are a few ideas. EA needs to beat the Monkeys they have at the code writing computers, or at least add more of them so that this game takes a step into the NOW of sports simulation. And gives us a baseball game worth playing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Baseball Game (for now) October 9, 2002
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?? I beamed Mike Piazza in the head, ribs, and back a half-dozen times in this game and he kept coming back for more!
3) Fighting (like in the NHL series) would be nice (see point #2 above).
4) It's pretty easy to score runs, which will make the game kinda boring after a while. I guess if we face facts that it's a computer, we should realize that there will be repeatable scenarios under which you can always score.
I've been a baseball fan all of my life and pros and cons aside - this is a terrific game to play. I think it might cure my offseason blues.

3.0 out of 5 stars Betrayed by EA sports, yet again.... April 3, 2002
By Eric
EA sports has made another lackluster game. With the heinous invention of nba live '02 behind them, the EA production team now creates a lackluster baseball game. I would conisder myself a fan of baseball, but not an avid fan (perhaps, this is why i like the game, im almost ashamed to say) The game itself is decent. The gameplay is average once the difficulty settings are changed, on amateur i scored 28 runs in game !!(pretty amazing huh) Im currently in a season on pro and the games have been pretty true to life...somewhat.
The modes of play are EXTREMELY limited. You only have single, season, and homerun derby (there may be another one that im forgetting). The graphics are decent, however the players faces are hillariously emotionless and the commentating is sometimes annoying and a bit unaccurate. Overall the games deserves 2 and half stars, not three. If your an avid fan of baseball, then you probably wont like this one, perhaps the all-star and high heat are up your alley. In a nutshell this game is for the casual fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not too bad June 12, 2002
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. I believe that this is the most realistic part of the game. The batting cursor can be invisible so that you really have to tell what type of pitch (fastball, curveball, etc.) it is before you can swing. It really gives the game a good, true feel to it. As said before, the announcers are sometimes inaccurate with their calls and there needs to be a dynasty-type mode, but overall I would definitely recommend this game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Believe the Hype March 15, 2002
Triple Play is back baby. The controls are the same and the action is still fast and furious. The graphics are slightly improved, and the gameplay on Rookie is still far too simple to be fun. But turn it up to pro and look out, it's a ball game. Is it perfect, no. But it's still the best baseball game out for PS2. The game is missing a franchise mode. But after a 162 game season, I couldn't care less. EA Sports does it again. So don't believe the naysayers, the great one is still the great one. "All Star" and "High Heat" might have the massive stats and franchise modes, but for sheer playability, good graphics and enjoyment, Triple Play baseball is still the king. Now if only EA Sports could make a decent basketball game they'd rule the sports gaming world.
