Summary: I got this program to run just fine with (and even without) the patch. My problems with it are that it's too juvenile in its approach to be a useful teaching tool. The major flaw is that after every capture, there's a cute Lego video which is sure to delight the 7 - 10 year old who likes cartoons.
Summary: I haven't played in years and years and this particular item didn't renew my interest. I guess I expected better graphics and clearer tutorials. Perhaps it's just me, but I've already uninstalled it.
Great game of chess for children but difficult to make it work

Summary: When you receive the DVD it does not work. You have to go to an indicated web site and download two patches that fix some issues that the software has. I wasted a couple of hours before I figured out what to do. Still, once you get it to work, it is a great game of chess for children.
Summary: I consider myself an intermediate chess player. I'm no Bobby Fischer but I am probably far from a beginner. Now that I got that message through, I will honestly tell you that this game isnt much fun. The levels of difficulty are terrible. A monkey can beat the beginning levels.
Excerpt: This is my op on Corel Chess. Ok then. To start off with, I will say what Corel Chess is all about. As you would have realised from the title, this is a CHESS game! You didn't know? Oh dear! This is a great game to test your chess skills, against the computer, yourself or a friend.
Summary: Zuerst gesagt finde ich das Spiel eigentlich ziemlich klasse... der story-modus ist ziemlich kreativ gemacht und auch sonst wird es nicht langweilig... an einer stelle is das spiel leider mal abgestürzt und manchmal läd das spiel doch recht lange...
