All Game Guide
Nonetheless, Triple Play combines fast, arcade play with all of the features you'd expect in a simulation, and the 4 Way Play support makes it the best choice for multiplayer games. Some might be put off by the fast paced feel of the game, but most will enjoy Triple Play 96 for what it is--an exciting alternative to the WSB franchise and one of the few great baseball games for the Genesis.
Even with its minor flaws, Triple Play is packed with incredible realism and is right up there with World Series '95 as one of the best baseball titles yet.

How close can you get to the real thing? This is one complete baseball game. You get some amazing animations that you don't normally see in a video baseball game. Cool commentary on the plays as well as crowd reactions are among the many features. I never knew you could put so many in one baseball game! Electronic Arts has seriously outdone themselves and it has paid off.
It's great to have baseball back again, and Triple Play Baseball '96 makes it all the more welcome. With more Major League action like this, you might start thinking the strike never even happened at all.

Triple Play Baseball is another fine EA Sports entry. However, there is nothing here that's going to revolutionize the baseball cart genre. Maybe the new features should have been added to the La Russa cart just to avoid confusion.
