While the game suffers from poor framerate I still found Triple Play 99 to be quite an enjoyable title. While the jury may still be out on the other forthcoming baseball titles Triple Play 99 does offer one of the most satisfying TV style presentations I've ever played along with solid gameplay.
If you can get past the glitches and oversights, this is a fun game to play. I really enjoy the realistic look and feel of the game. I wish that EA had waited a few more weeks to put this game out and fixed the little things that managed to sneak through the cracks. If you are starving for a new baseball game before the real season gets underway, this will be your only choice. All in all, you should be satisfied to a certain degree.
Triple Play 99 is the way to go if you want a realistic baseball sim to play. It is really the most fun I've had playing a baseball game in a long time. The improvements made over last year's version mean that MLB '99 has its work cut out for it.
If you have Triple Play 98, purchasing this new version probably isn't worth it. In all honesty I enjoy playing the '97 version more than this one because the frame rate is smoother and triples are actually within the realm of possibility. EA Sports has created one heck of a graphics and sound collection with their latest PSX baseball title—if they'd only added some gameplay there's no telling what could have happened.
There's no question that Triple Play 99 is one of the best looking baseball games on the market. However, the lack of in-depth gameplay still makes TP99 a little redundant. If you haven't picked up a baseball game, and you're new to baseball titles, Triple Play 99 is a good choice.
It is still safe to say that Triple Play '99 is a decent baseball game for the PlayStation, but considering that its improvements over last year are only minor, and that its competitors just keep getting hungrier to take top spot, this title may not last for long.
