Just wondering which to buy. Triple Play or All Star Baseball/ The reviews I have seen says All Star is more realistic, but Triple Play has the better graphics. I know on PS1 Triple play was usually either a home run or single, plus the aftertouch pitching really didn't seem to give you much control......if any. Not like the old Nintendo RBI Baseball where you had big sweeping curves to K the batter. Seems like either people love or hate All Star. There is no in between. What's the deal? Shine on you crazy diamond.
I have been playing All-Star baseball all summer and really enjoy the game. My only problem with it, is that you have no "in-game saves." You can play a game in about 45-45 minutes. I strictly play the franchise option. You can steal 2nd base with anyone, you can throw out anyone trying to steal. I don't like that. Players can get injured too easily sometimes and trades b/w teams aren't fair sometimes, i.e. Bagwell for Loretta. Overall, I really enjoy the game though.
I know in PS1 it was fairly easy to throw out runners. I did make unfair trades in that just to update teams. I was really wondering about the pitching. Do you actually have control over the pitches? In Triple Play it didn't seem like you had control. Sometime you thought you did and the next pitch seemed to go wherever. I have ordered All Star from a online place called game express. They have good prices. Thanks for the help. Game on........
You do have control over the pitch selection and pitch location. As a pitcher begins to tire, you have less and less control over his location. Example, by the 7th inning of a game, Greg Maddux is going to have much better control than Rick Ankiel.
if you can survive the graphics mlb 2003 is the best baseball game by far with high heat and allstar running 2nd i bought all three in a attempt to find a good baseball game and think that mlb2003 is the best if it comes out for the ps2 goodbye triple play
Picked up AllStar 2002 to tery it out. Trying to get use to the controls after always playing TP 2000. How do you activate the fielder closest to the ball? Must have missed the instruction somewhere in the book. On manual it seems like it is almost on automatic fielding. I must be missing something somewhere. Help a beginner. Can you actually change the direction of the pitch while the ball is on its way to the plate? I'm sure it will be a good game once i know what the h i am doing. can't go wrong for $19. Thanks for any input........Shine on crazy diamond.
Can you actually change the course of the pitch when it is on the way to the plate? On the old nintendo RBI Baseball you could throw big, sweeping curves and see your curve change on the way to the plate. Once you were in the groove you could rack up K's on the outside corner..... Later man......
Since I have the PS2 I went with the All Star Baseball to see if the pitching is any better than Triple Play. Played last night and am learning the controls. How do you activate the player nearest the ball? Haven't seen anything about that.. Later
