Great

Edith Farley, Amazon

  • Summary: Great game. I would buy it for the xbox, but I don't know if they have it. It has taught my 7 year old how to play chess.

It doesn't compare but to the Pc version

Severiano Venegas, Amazon
29 January 2013
  • Summary: This game is all right for a non pc game. I was challenged and did improve my chess game but I only really use this game at hotel rooms or when there's nothing to do at my job. There's just not enough to reference or chess information like the pc version.

Not great for young kids

  • Summary: I was super excited about this for my son's DS. However, he seems to mostly ignore it. He loves chess, but this just doesn't grab his attention.

There is a much better Chess game out there.

Micheal Hunt, Amazon
13 February 2011
  • Summary: In the past week since this review was written, I have been checking out all the chess games available on the DS, including ones not listed on Amazon.com. This particular title seems rather popular, but I suspect that is due to there only previously having been a limited amount of chess titles available for the DS at the time. There is a much better one from Europe, simply titled "Chess" or "Schach"...

Chessmaster

Spider Monkey, Amazon
30 January 2011
  • Summary: `Chessmaster' for the DS is a good, but pretty basic, chess game with the bonus of various additional features. With this you get a quick game mode, a rated chess game mode, mini games and chess puzzles. The mini games allow you to play non-chess games with the various chess pieces so that you get a greater understanding of the way they move and the various strengths and weaknesses of each piece.

Very educational! get it if you can

Harriet Cohen, Amazon
15 March 2010
  • Summary: I have 7 and 8 year olds, and our boys love this game! I've always thought DS offers no education, but this one is different. If you have a basic chess skill this is one you should get. My boys like this one as much as they like new super mario bros. Get it if you can. Check your local Gamestop preowned section. I purchased it at Gamestop at 14.99 (preowned) Highly recommended.

Great for Beginners

Zandaxar, Amazon
20 December 2009
  • Summary: Basics: You play against the Chessmaster or up to 23 weaker versions of it. Only basic time controls of minutes per game or second per move or unlimited time are offered. It has a tutorial that covers rules, piece movement and some basic tactics(like double-attacks, pins, skewers etc). It has six mini-games of 20 levels each that are intended to help teach basic chess thinking techniques.

Keeping Husband Happy

Jodi Crivello, Amazon
14 February 2009
  • Summary: Got this for my husband, an avowed chess geek for Christmas, hoping it would keep him interested for a week or two. He's still playing it in February, and he is really good at chess. Yay for Chess Master.
