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.

Summary: First, if you are considering buying this game, please realize that the product description is very misleading. There is no tournament in this game. There is no "Ten Years Tournament" with the White Queen and Black King. There are no player profiles.
Summary: I bought Fritz looking for an alternative to [...] which till now was the only pda size chess game recorder you can get (and it @$#%^). I had hoped that Fritz could replace it - but not quite - at least not for tournaments. Otherwise it beats MonRoi hands down and is 1/20th the cost!
Summary: After many months waiting for this product (some launching delays included) what we have is basically what we already had with Chessmaster. I sincerely had higher expectations in fritz for DS.
