  • Summary: Not great Pure chess isn’t bad in single player - Chess is Chess, there is a limit to how much you can vary it. There are plenty of computer opponents with various skill levels to beat, you can enter tournaments and solve Chess puzzles. It’s the online play which is the real let down. Rather than truly live (though once in a blue moon, you will get an opponent who will play the game to conclusion in one sitting).

  • Summary: For a paying chess game, I would expect a few more options. By far the worst part of the game is the fact you cannot play opponent with a time limit. They can take days to move.

  • Summary: same old game same old dance. I love chess but the online oppents makes this game a 4. Either you get some one who doesn't know what is what or some one who plays a move every hours or so.

  • Summary: As a chess game, Pure Chess is one of the best out there. The AI is challenging, cross-platform online play is possible, and extra challenges are included. The game even offers some basic and advanced tips to help you with some important aspects of chess. While all this is fine and dandy, Pure Chess as a video game leaves a lot to be desired.

  • Summary: Pure chess is a good for those who enjoy the classic board game. It offers matches against a CPU leveled 1-10. There are options of different chess pieces and settings to choose from. The music could use a larger library, but the songs offered are great. Pure Chess offers online matches, which offers the bare minimum. It's nice to be able to find people to play against in a matter of minutes; it's an option that may not be available for many people, but for Pure Chess.

  • Summary: It gives you what it promises: chess! There are plenty of options and even an online mode if you want to play against other people. So if you like chess you like this game.

  • Summary: While the single-player modes are fine (the a.i. is just as good as any other chess game i've played) not having a real-time multi-player mode really drives me away from playing this anymore than i have already

  • Summary: An inexpensive, visually beautiful chess game to play on your handheld with the inclusion of pass and play, allowing your friends to join in. The lack of online multiplayer is the reason it is not given a perfect score, however as far as chess games go, this is by far the best alternative for fans wanting to play it on the go.

  • Summary: This is an excellent and beautifully presented chess game. The game does feature local pass-and-play multiplayer, some reviews have stated that this is not the case. That is wrong.
