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.

  • 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. ....
