Summary: This game that I purchased from Europe will not play on my U.S. bought PS3. When I put the game in and attempted to play it, a video output error code came on the screen (80028F10). I looked up the code, it means that the game will not play on SD video output. It only plays on HD video output.
Summary: You cannont play chess online. The Chess menu is as follows: 1)Free Chess: you can play your choice of 15 different animals on Classic, Giveaway and Chess 960 mode.

Summary: I found the game disappointing because: There is no on-line facility to play real people.

Summary: If you are an expert stick to the PC ones, but if your a casual player who wants to sit back in a big comfy chair and play chess on his big screen TV then this is a fine game. I enjoyed it, initially I stuck to just playing the computer but I did end up enjoying the little story mode thing too.
Summary: This game provides a good range of opponents, a library of 2000 classic games and a fair few game modes. On the downside the graphics are a little low res, there's no online play, and you can't properly tilt the 3D boards as the view is fixed. Still its only £15.
Summary: While I respect the other review on this page - obviously from a serious chess player - as a more casual player Fritz is fine.
