  • Summary: New player animations bring the hitting, pitching and fielding to life with signature styles and stances. 3D-scanned faces put your favorite star players in the game. Play in every major league ballpark and experience the detail and beauty of a big-league setting. Hear commentary from broadcasters Bob Costas and Harold Reynolds. Four different game modes include Home Run Derby for those who live by the long ball. Other extras include Create-A-Player, Fantasy Draft, and widescreen TV support. [Electronic Arts] Expand

  1. Far from perfect, the game comes on strong with enough realism and excellent control to shake a bat at.
  2. The game is a lot of fun to play, regardless of how loose the controls are.

    3DO's High Heat 2003 will be more fun over more time, but if you like your games as pretty as a lingerie model, Triple Play's cup runneth over.
  4. No flash, no pop, just a straight-up baseball game that looks great and plays okay. [Apr 2002, p.76]
  5. 60
    The flawed cursor interface gives you little reason to do anything but swing at every ball—in fact, if you take a pitch, the announcers instantly chide you!
  6. Unfortunately all the fun was vacuum sucked out for a more serious tone.
  7. Compared to smoother, more realistic titles such as "High Heat" (and to a lesser extent, "All-Star Baseball"), this is an embarrassment. [June 2002, p.114]
