Summary: Don't listen to negative and misleading reviews about this programme. It might not play at the listed Elo 2300+ but on the unlimited thinking time setting (which means it will consider its move for some minutes or until you interrupt) and the highest Elo setting it plays at about 1800-1900 Elo,...
Summary: The 5 stars say it all... this game is GREAT! I'm just a beginner and know that this will enable me to grow into a better one! The package arrived within the timeframe given and I couldn't have asked for more! Thanks to everyone involved who make this a tremendous experience!
Summary: I had been playing chess using Chessmaster (supposedly 1850 ELO) on my Nintendo DS, but found the program weak although I am not a strong player. I had heard that Fritz was a more skilled chess program for the Nintendo DS platform so I bought it and just played my first game. I had the white pieces.
Who is Fritz? I dunno either, but the Chess portion is great.

Summary: What can a video-game developing company possibly do with a DS version of chess that hasn't been done already? The answer is pretty simple, variety that keeps you interested and not being bored to death by the same repetitive things, and that's exactly what Deep Silver has designed for what I am...
Summary: I picked this up because it seemed to me that a chess program was a must-have for any game (artificial intelligence) system. I like chess well enough, used to play a lot as a kid, but don't have a whole lot of time and mental energy as a working adult.
Good except for the poor pacing of time-controlled play

Summary: You can play at 12 different difficulty levels ranging from Elo ratings of 400(beginner) to 2320(expert). If you play rated games you earn your own Elo rating. Or you can play practice games that also include the chess variants of Chess960(backrow pieces are random) and Giveaway Chess(win by losing...
Summary: I came to this website to purchase the game "Fritz Chess" for the DS and was disappointed to find it was out of stock with little hope of it ever coming back. Luckily some days later a few copies of the game were made available and I was able to order one.
Summary: Just wanted to quickly chime in that I'm very pleased with the program overall. Several other reviewers have already given great detailed descriptions of what it offers (several ways to study mates, practice games, ELO ratings, and 2000 historical games) as well as its deficiencies (interface).
Summary: Not a bad game, but the computer player is annoying as hell, always goes first reguardless of color/wins or losses, taunts after every move like some cocky a$$hole, and is allowed to perform cheap, unfair moves that the human player cannot.
