Reception[edit]

Next Generation reviewed the PlayStation version of the game, rating it three stars out of five, and stated that "MLB 2000 swings for the fences, but falls short. It doesn't do anything truly innovative, and it needed to in order to make up for the some of the more annoying features of the game. It's still a fun game, but not the leader of the pack."[1] Kraig Kujawa of Official U.S. PlayStation Magazine praised the "relatively realistic gameplay that's fast and fun", however concluded as "If you're a die-hard fan of the MLB series, then MLB 2000 is probably worth picking up since it offers more of exactly the same. But if you have last year's MLB or no baseball game at all, then pick up EA's Triple Play 2000. It's better, and has taken better advantage of its time in the off-season."[2]
