Best of the lot..

Peter Brodie, Amazon
8 March 2014
  • 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, which is more than strong enough to defeat most un-studied players almost indefinitely.

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 labeling the best chess game on DS so far.

Handy way to learn chess

R. Voorhis "Anglo dad", Amazon

  • 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). However, it's not that hard to navigate the interface once you get use to it). My nine year old loves it for the intro stuff (mate in one, playing others DS to DS).

Annoying, but fun.

Deimos ".", Amazon

  • 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. The game is well done over all, the graphics are great, it's hard unless you practice, and it takes full advantage of thr dsi and it's great features.

It plays at a wide skill level

The_naprox, Amazon

  • Summary: Apparently chess reviews must be long. I apologize for the shortness of this review. Fritz plays chess at a wide range of skills. It varies the opening to a greater degree then chessmaster. No it's not like playing against a chess master. Its like playing against a fairly sophisticated chess game made for nintendo DS. Finally, Which is better Chessmaster or Fritz? Fritz seems to play a less predictable and more varied game-and that is a good thing.

Good challenge

Orangesan Lemons, Amazon

  • Summary: Fritz does not give the same responses to the same moves but varies its responses unlike some other chess programs. I prefered the fun games on Chessmaster but overall for me I think Fritz has a slight edge on the actual chess play.

A decent chess game for the DS

Mr. M. Robertson, Amazon
5 August 2009
  • Summary: Fritz DS is the little brother of the all singing all dancing pc chess powerhouse that is Fritz. I couldn't find any reviews whatsoever on the web, so took a chance and decided to buy it anyway. So this may well be the very first english language review of Fritz DS. Woo hoo! You can play normal chess, chess 360/Fischer chess, and giveaway chess, where you have to lose all of your pieces to win.
