To the track, the wall, it’s outta here! EA Sports has hit another home run with their latest baseball game, Triple Play 2000. This is by far the best baseball game I have ever seen out of any console, PC, or coin-op arcade game out there. This is the closest you can possibly come to playing in the major leagues without actually playing the real thing.
PlayStationGame Revolution (Apr, 1999)
Overall, Triple Play 2000 is a fine game without any major flaws. Many of the complaints from last year's version (like the sluggish gameplay and camera angles) were addressed and fixed, which is really all you can ask for. EA Sports really has to be commended for releasing a baseball game that anyone can get into and play.

This game is a lot of fun to play and I can honestly say that if you enjoy baseball at all, you will most likely love the Playstation version of Triple Play 2000. There are really no major flaws in the gameplay and I liked the way they put this game together. I would recommend that you buy this game, especially if you have been interested enough to have read my review to this point. Play Ball!

Triple Play 2000 is a great game overall. It features a lot of fast action and has enough levels of control that anyone should be able to hop right in and enjoy it. The pace keeps moving so it doesn't get boring. Bottom Line: Clean, sharp graphics with excellent animation. Multiple levels of difficulty for each aspect of the game allow anyone to refine the gameplay to their own ability. Decent computer AI where adjustments are really noticeable, although there are still a few little problems with strategy. Overall, a good, solid game that should please just about any arcade baseball fan.

EA liefert ein rundum gelungenes Produkt ab, welches der N64-Konkurrenz ASB2000 in den meisten Belangen ordentlich Paroli bietet. Die Tür zum Platin Classic bleibt einzig und allein deshalb verschlossen, da bei der Teamauswahl nicht ersichtlich ist, welche Mannschaft welche Stärken hat. FIFA/NHL-Vergleichsbalken gibt es nicht - umständliches Kramen in den Spielerdatenbanken ist die Folge. Ansonsten: Homerun für TP2000!

Triple Play 2000 is a quality addition to EA’s growing range of sport simulations, with all the atmosphere and excitement of MLB sans the hot-dogs.
PlayStationAbsolute Playstation (Apr, 1999)
A pick-up-and-play baseball game with splendid sound and visuals. There are ample game options and tons of stats to twiddle with. I suppose opinion on the gameplay depends on how much you enjoy the real sport. On the positive side there isn't much hanging around because the player is thrust straight into the action, even turnovers are almost instant. On the negative side a short bunt usually ends with a run out at first base while an attempt at a home run will probably get caught out on the wall which kind of suppresses the instinct to really 'have a go'.
PlayStationMega Fun (Jun, 1999)
Trotz sonnigem Wetter, das mich selbst zu Schläger, Handschuh und Baseball greifen lässt, fesselt mich Triple Play 2000 vor den Bildschirm. Entscheidend sind die Verbesserungen an Grafik und Spielablauf, durch die TP 2000 auch gegen den Baseballkönig von Acclaim besteht: Die einzelnen Spieler bewegen sich realistischer und sehen ihrem Original sehr ähnlich. Darüber hinaus ist das Geschehen im Stadion durch einen gut durchgestylten Arcade-Stil für Anfänger des Genres bestens geeignet. Ob beim Fangen des Balls oder beim sonst so schwierigen Schlagen, alle Problemzonen sind optimal geliftet worden. Fazit: Triple Play 2000 ist auf jeden Fall der Top-Titel für PS-Besitzer.
Nintendo 64Sports Gaming Network (Apr 12, 1999)
I enjoyed playing the game and admired its ease of play, but it would not have taken much more to have created a significantly better game. Instead of bestowing unstinted praise or savage and excessive criticism upon the game, the above review is designed to offer players a more informed choice. Moreover, although one hears a great deal about how both Acclaim and Nintendo have build upon their initial effort, my memories of Breakaway 99 leave me a bit wary. Players who want to choose one game might want to wait to see what the next few weeks bring; while TP2000 may satisfy a large number of players (including the occasional or recreational video game player), more hardcore video gameplayers should consider surveying the field.
WindowsPower Unlimited (May, 1999)
Ik ben gematigd tevreden over Triple Play 2000. Ik vind het niet echt een verbetering ten opzichte van Triple Play 99 (8,5). Het spel is weliswaar opnieuw super realistisch en het geluid erg sfeervol, maar de graphics zijn licht achteruit gegaan en de gameplay blijft nog steeds moeizaam.
WindowsGameGenie (1999)
It's in the game. Triple Play 2000 s a new level of gameplay in the Triple Play series. With the addition of the total control hitting and more solid gameplay, this version is sure to make most people happy. There are plenty of things that can detract from these new features, but most players can play through them. The graphics look better than before, but could be even better, and the sound is top notch. Being the first baseball title to hit the shelves, Triple Play 2000 has set the for every other title to aim for.
WindowsPC Gaming World (Jun, 1999)
Tiple Play clearly emphasises action, so fantasy leaguers may complain. While some of the statistics generated during simulated seasons and the new automatic trading can be a little dubious, it will still walk away with the pennant - unless MS Baseball 2000 can stop it.
PlayStationGameSpot (Mar 24, 1999)
Overall, Triple Play 2000 is a welcome addition to the PlayStation baseball lineup that everyone, even those who weren't fans of previous Triple Play games, should check out.
Nintendo 64Nintendo Power Magazine (Apr, 1999)
Triple Play 2000 does most things well, and it feels like the real deal. The games tend to last a long time as a result of a pause that takes place while waiting for the pitch selection menu to appear before each pitch. This game has a lot going for it with the graphics and sound, but even on the Fast setting it's slow.
WindowsGameSpot (Apr 23, 1999)
So how does Triple Play 2000 stack up against this year's crop of baseball titles? In truth, it's still tough to tell. Each of the major games has at least one major selling point, and for Triple Play 2000 it's the simple fact that the game is a lot of fun to play. Yes it has a number of gameplay flaws and idiosyncrasies, and yes it's not a 100 percent-accurate re-creation of America's pastime. But no other baseball game is as much fun to play head-to-head for sheer bragging rights and power-hitting duels. If you crave the hard-core stats, realism, and strategy of the sport, however, make no mistake: You will not be happy with Triple Play 2000. But this is a great game for anyone interested in "baseball lite" with killer graphics.
WindowsPC Player (Germany) (Jul, 1999)
Wie schon der Vorgänger richtet sich auch das diesjährige Triple Play an Action-Baseballer, die allenfalls eine einzige Saison spielen möchten. Die fulminante Stadionatmosphäre mit kecken Sprechern und gelegentlichen Donnergeräuschen bei besonders gelungenen Schlägen unterstreicht den Konsolen-Charakter. Zusammen mit der extrem intuitiven Maussteuerung ist das aber sicher kein Fehler - hier schlägt Ihre Stunde, wenn Sie zuvor noch nie etwas mit Baseball zu tun hatten oder zu tun haben wollten.
WindowsAll Game Guide (1999)
Overall, Triple Play 2000 is kind of like a well-hit ball which reaches the warning track but falls into the arms of the center fielder right in front of the wall. The swing was sweet, but there just wasn't enough juice for a home run.
Nintendo 64HappyPuppy (Jun 15, 1999)
Not really knowing if I like it is sort of how I feel about TP2K for N64 all together. It’s not a bad game certainly, but there are so many little things missing that make the PC and PSX versions so great that it is hard for me to evaluate the N64 version on a level ground. This review illustrates that point, because it is mostly bitching about gaps in this version. All in all TP2K is a great game, but I’d have to say that its N64 incarnation makes it become exponentially more average.
WindowsAdrenaline Vault, The (AVault) (Apr 24, 1999)
At last count, there are four new baseball titles that have recently been released. Triple Play 2000 brings a few nice things to the table and the gameplay is entertaining at times, but for a game that focuses solely on action I found that there are a number of things that detract from it. As a result, the game ends up being par for the course…not bad, but nothing particularly great either. It’s a decent title but you should comparison shop before you buy and definitely try the demo first.
Nintendo 6464 Power / big.N / N Games (May, 1999)
Ganz klar, in Sachen Grafik und Sound hat sich bei Triple Play 2000 einiges zum Vorteil verändert. Aber was soll man machen, wenn die Konkurrenz trotzdem noch fünfzig Schritte voraus ist, Ein paar Beispiele gefällig? In Acclaims All Star Baseball 2000 gibt es unterschiedliche Sound-Samples für die Anhänger von Heim- und Auswärtsteam, die Spieler tragen realistische hohe Socken und manchmal Sonnenbrillen, die Grafik ist insgesamt viel besser, und der Multiplayer-Modus taugt für vier statt nur für zwei Spieler. Diese Aufzählung ließe sich beliebig fortsetzen, und zählt man alle Aspekte zusammen, kann man EAs ersten Anlauf im N64-Baseballsektor nur als vermurkst bezeichnen. Ganz besonders das Gameplay. Fans einer exakten Simulation werden bitter enttäuscht sein, ebenso wie reine Action- Freaks. Dieses Game ist weder Fisch noch Fleisch.
WindowsComputer Gaming World (CGW) (Jul, 1999)
Despite these shortcomings, TP2000 is actually kind of fun to play, even with its dopey gameplay. But the game definitely shows that it has been designed more for the console world than for the PC. Its second-generation 3D engine is improved over last year’s inaugural version, but the players still look blocky, and this engine lacks that X factor found in other EA Sports titles’ engines. If you’ve enjoyed TRIPLE PLAY over the years, then this latest installment won’t disappoint. But if you’re looking for something that plays like America’s Great Game, this still isn’t it.
Nintendo 64All Game Guide (1999)
When all is said and done, Triple Play 2000 doesn't offer anything to distinguish itself from the current crop of baseball games, other than having a very uneven frame rate and suspect controls. Had it offered the same level of playability as its PlayStation counterpart, then this title would have come highly recommended. It doesn't and therefore isn't. Those expecting an early home run from the king of sports games will have to settle instead for a weakly hit grounder.
WindowsComputer Games Magazine (Apr 21, 1999)
Triple Play 2000 is a step back in certain ways from Triple Play 99, but in a larger view it's a step forward. If they get rid of the idiotic "click-to-go-faster" feature, allow joystick/keyboard customization, forget the dull Home Run Derby (which is essentially one huge experiment of repetitive timing) and give the players more intelligence, then they will have a winning and enjoyable arcade baseball game. Until then, go with a hitter that can leave the yard, like High Heat Baseball 2000, rather than some batter with warning track power.
Nintendo 64GameSpot (May 08, 1999)
In comparison with the other N64 baseball games out there, like Mike Piazza's Strike Zone and the upcoming All-Star Baseball 2000, Triple Play 2000 falls squarely in the middle. The mediocre graphics and sluggish control leave much to be desired. I really enjoyed last year's Triple Play on the PlayStation but the elements that I liked about it, like the simulation feel and true baseball game atmosphere, just weren't there in this version. Definitely rent this one first.
Nintendo 64Game Revolution (Apr 01, 1999)
But, more seasoned gamers should absolutely forego this title in favor of ASB 2000. Triple Play for the N64 fails to match up in every aspect. If it's in the game, it's in Acclaim. (oh please don't sue me for that one).
