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. The DS version seems to be just about the perfect version of Chessmaster, offering the professional quality of instruction while being all the more accessible and portable. ...
Pros: Huge amount of tutorials, games and opponents .

Chessmaster: The Art of Learning (DS): Chessmaster for Ninetendo DS

Summary: This review is for Chessmaster on the Nintendo DS and I have played this not on this console and on the PSP and this version is slightly better than the other one but there's not much in it. There have been whole host of Chess games released over the years for computers and consoles but Chessmaster appears to be the front runner and the most successful since being released. You can probably pick it up for under £10 now which is reasonable enough.
