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.

Chessmaster

Spider Monkey, Amazon

  • 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.

Great for Beginners

  • 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).

You pay for what you get

  • Summary: This is a good title for the value. There is a lot of gameplay to be had and it is nice playing against seemingly realistic people complete with photos. The music isn't totally annoying either which is a plus because I've had to play games with truly annoying music that you can't turn off.

OK, considering the platform it's on

  • Summary: I bought this game for my DS about a month ago because it was (and is) the ONLY chess game available for the DS. Amazon is giving out a bad product description though, because there is NO 900 game annotated database.

Good idea, poor execution :(

  • Summary: I like chessmaster in general, and was looking forward to this game for the DS. Unfortunately, it didn't have the library of classic games that I saw advertised in places, nor are there any advanced teaching lessons. Other reviews go more in depth about some of the shortcomings (seriously...

Finally, a full chess game for the DS. But it's lacking...

  • Summary: First, before you buy, please note that Chessmaster for the DS *does not* have wifi capabilities. Meaning, if you want to play your friend, he/she will need to be in the same room as you.

The Master of Chess

illogicol..., Ciao
8 September 2010
  • Excerpt: I have always quite enjoyed the idea of the Chessmaster series, its focus on learning to play Chess well rather than just offering gimmicky boards and sound effects sets it apart from a lot of Chess games. It is aimed at the newcomer but offer a lot the Chess player of any level.
  • Pros: Huge amount of tutorials, games and opponents .
  • Cons: Despite being cut down from the PC version, still has quite a lot of padding .  Limited appeal .
