Ridiculous amount of bugs

There's no way this is a 5 star, Amazon
10 April 2004
  • Summary: This game could be a 5 star, if it worked properly. I've only had the game one month and I've found several bugs in it. I'm a computer programmer and if my work had this many errors in it, I'd be out of a job. If you win a match within the time limit in 'Rated Game', half the time it'll declare your victory a 'Stalemate'. This has happened probably a dozen times. Also, it sometimes overwrites your save files.

Great for learning chess, so-so graphics

Lisa Shea "be the change you wish to see in t..., Amazon
1 August 2003
  • Summary: In a world where Harry Potter is king, and Wizard's Chess captured the hearts of millions, it's no surprise that another animated chess game - Chessmaster - has hit the market. The game has quite a collection of training systems - tutorials, exams, historic games, classic openings. But I went diving right for the fantasy chess, with its animation. You can choose from the orcs or the humans, white or black.

Checkmate! This is a Chessmasterpiece!!

  • Summary: This game is actually designed to make you a CHESSMASTER YOURSELF! I was interested in the teaching prospects for this game and I was anxious to see what the PS2 would give us in the way of Chess. In just two days of playing this game, I find myself, at 36 years old, addicted to Chess again.

Chessmaster Disappointing

Laura Howell, Amazon
8 June 2003
  • Summary: I had become addicted to the Chessmaster for the PC so when I heard the new one was coming out for PS2 - I pre-ordered it. The day it came I walked right in and started playing. Let me just say I was highly disappointed. The graphics compared ot the PC version are not that impressive and there weren't a whole lot of options for different boards, pieces, etc. And the so-called "Battlefield Chess" leaves a lot to be desired. ....

Addiction at a great price

T. Jewell, Amazon
1 June 2003
  • Summary: When it comes to playing video games I have always been more of an action/sports fanatic...so why am I addicted to Chessmaster? I have never really played the game of chess before but I've always wondered what the big deal was about it, so after seeing this game advertised at a great price I decided to give it a chance. I'm glad I did! This game has been outstanding for me as a beginner. It includes a complete "chess school" (do they actually have those??

Chess for lazy people.

SleepyJD, Amazon

  • Summary: This is chess for people who are too lazy to set up their board or have no friends. I think it should be a 9.99 bargin title.
