Triple Play 2000

Get the game at!

Reviewed by Henry Sun How would EA sports try to match the great baseball games of "All-Star 99-2000" They made a "Triple Play 2000", this resulted in a sorry for an excuse of a baseball simulator. After seeing the advertisement on the television I thought this game looked pretty cool, "Virtaul Sammy", and all those cool moves you are able to pull off. Well there were moves, but not very cool. Still, this is just another arcadeish baseball game, where people play just when they either get bored.

Graphics 6 out of 10

The graphics of this game cannot, and I say this with the up most respect for EA , compare with the amazing graphics of All-Star 2000, but I can say it is not bad since there isn't too many other baseball games on the market that are better. The graphics of the stadiums are really bad, the only part of it that is good is that it is very detailed, but not clear. The crowds all look like cardboard figures, and when the camera moves you get dizzy from the blurry stands. The only good part is when you hit the home run, it looks pretty cool.

Music and Sound 9 out of 10

As anyone would know, no baseball game ever had much music. But the sound is very important. Triple Play carries excellent sound effects. The play by play is really good, and they do not say the same thing twice very often. Overall the sound effects for hitting and throwing is really good.

Game Challenge 6 out of 10

There isn't much challenges to this game, it's either keep getting one base hits, or getting home runs. Rookie and Pro levels are way too easy, and the all star level is almost impossible to beat. The only challenge I find is to master running the bases, it is extremely hard to learn how to do it good.

Game Play-Fun 7 out of 10

The game play is very dull, first of all unlike All-Star 2000, you can not hit into the outfield and get a base hit by hitting into a hole, the out fielder can track anything down, getting doubles and triples are nearly impossible, and unrealistically, the fielders have incredible arms, getting a in field hit is not possible. There isn't must change in the batting motion and like old baseball games, all you have to do is swing. Overall the game play is fun for like a little while, but once you play like ten games, it starts to stink.

Rumble Pak 4 out of 10

Terrible, it is very dumb, I mean who uses a rumble pack to play sports games anyway, apparently the makers of this game did not think so. It just rumbles when you hit, and like when you run, it's wastes lots of battery. Overall I would not waste batteries to use a rumble pack.


There is a few frustration, such as when you hit the ball really good, and the computer outfield just tracks it down, and catches it. O boy does that ever stink! I mean why would they make this game so hard to hit extra base hits. Another frustration is all pitchers have 100 pitches, but half of them are crappy, because you get tired. in order to work fast, you would not get strike outs, but after getting like 6 Ks, your pitcher gets tired.

Replayability 8 out of 10

Like Most sports games the replayability is really really good, you can play and play until you get tired. And you can play several seasons before getting rid of this game. But due to the game play of this game I have to say the replayability is lower than most sports games.

Game Value 6 out of 10

This game is definitely not worth the money to buy, it gets boring after like two three weeks, and at the price they charge for it, it's not worth it. If I were you I would rent it, and just play a while. Or get some stupid rich friend to buy it, and then play it at his house or something.

Overall 7 out of 10

In conclusion this is a pretty bad game, I would not recommmend you buying it , if indeed you like baseball games, try All-Star 2000, or 99. Overall the game is an average game that people forget about pretty fast.
