Triple Play Baseball is about as close as one could get to a hypothetical Extreme Baseball League (call it XBL). The game's Big League Challenge pits you against baseball's biggest sluggers in a home run contest, and Extreme mode will provide targets to challenge your timing and accuracy. Baseball purists, however, shouldn't be alarmed--Triple Play Baseball is still a very traditional game. It includes updated rosters, stats, and stadiums (including new additions Miller Park in Milwaukee and Pittsburgh's PNC Park). Toronto Blue Jays manager Buck Martinez and Jim Hughson provide the game's color commentary and play-by-play, respectively.

First, this game feels a little slower than the last two years. Even at the fastest game settings those 100 mph fastballs look pretty much the same as the 70 mph changeups. That means that batting isn't very hard, but getting a human opponent out is difficult.
The graphics weren't all that wonderful either, but aren't a major problem. Stadiums look rather bland and don't seem all that true to life. Players also look a little strange as well. Nothing really makes you feel like you are actually at the game.
In the sound department the play by play seems to be wrong a little more often than in previous games, which could likely bother some gamers. The announcers also get a little too excited over plays that aren't all that special.
This game, much like any sports game really, could have benefited from the franchise type of play that has made the Madden series, as well as some of the Dreamcast titles, nearly infinitely playable. I would have loved to see some type of minor league system and some of the top prospects in this game.
As I said the game is very good. It's just hard not to focus on the negatives when the game hasn't changed much and there is nothing new to report. There are few real problems, just disappointments. It more or less all comes down to whether or not you feel you need to be playing with updated rosters which, unfortunately, were finalized a little too early yet again this year.
