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.
Summary: The presentaion is a strange mix of optimum, in-depth options and modes and the most tasteless game menues. The graphics are great; they are chess pieces and they look like chess pieces. Soothing music helps the gamer to relax, but after time it becomes intolerable.
Summary: I am really very disappointed at the poor thought that went into designing this game. I was really looking forward to it, having for many years owned "Chessmaster II" for the Playstation One. I was dismayed to discover that in many ways the Playstation 2 version is a step backwards.

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.
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.
