WorthPlaying
11 October 2008
  • Summary: Exercising your mind and your fingers, Online Chess Kingdoms updates the original “brain game” and brings the classic game of chess to the PSP in an entirely new format. The title introduces new modes of play, detailed fantasy graphics and groundbreaking infrastructure support in which players battle for control in a persistent online world.

Just RPG

  • Excerpt: Online Chess Kingdoms takes traditional chess and blends it with a fantasy world. Add in some online multiplayer, and Online Chess Kingdoms definitely sounds like a game that chess fans will be eager to play. Long ago, the God-like Phrenos created the universe from five different forces. He sculpted reality from Chaos, Magic, Order, and Reason, and with Spirit, he brought life to his great creation. For many years, the universe existed like this, in a perfect balance.

  • Excerpt: I had some anticipation over this game, probably held over from my initial flashback to that "battle chess" scene from the first Star Wars movie. You wouldn't be wrong to come expecting something like that cool vision from decades past. Was George Lucas cool, or what? Trying to realize a living chessboard was easier on film than in the gaming world, judging by the lack of interesting chess videogames over the years.

  • Excerpt: Online Chess Kingdoms for the PSP is by no means a blow-you-away hit title, but it does an exceptional job at giving chess enthusiasts an arena to flex their mental muscle. It offers a few different modes of play, with a handful of adornments to make the the classic game of war a little more interesting. As the name might suggest, the major selling point of Online Chess Kingdoms is its online competitive play. Making it even more unique is the way this online mode works.

  • Summary: I ärlighetens namn är nästan titeln en tillräcklig recension av Online Chess Kingdoms. Det är schack och det finns ett onlineläge – vad mer behöver man egentligen veta?

  • Excerpt: Les jeux d'échecs sont plutôt une denrée rare sur PSP, c'est pourquoi l'arrivée de Online Chess Kingdoms ne devrait pas passer inaperçue parmi les férus de tours, de fous et de cavaliers. A l'image du mythique Battle Chess, Konami nous propose ici un échiquier théâtre de guerres terribles entre différents royaumes pour un résultat surprenant... d'ennui.

  • Conclusion: Si les parties d’échecs proposées par Online Chess Kingdoms sont plutôt convaincantes sur le plan de l’intelligence artificielle, leur présentation a en revanche bien du mal à séduire, tant sur le plan graphique qui rend parfois difficile la lecture du jeu, que sur celui de la scénarisation du mode Histoire.
  • Pros: Une intelligence artificielle solide, Le mode Combat apporte une variante amusante, La possibilité de jouer en ligne
  • Cons: Une scénarisation peu convaincante, La présentation en 3D rend la lecture du jeu difficile, Aucune possibilité de discussion en ligne

  • Excerpt: Кого сегодня удивишь самыми обыкновенными шахматами? Игра, всем хорошо знакомая – даже если вы никогда не мечтали стать новым Крамником и с трудом помните, какой буквой ходит конь. Тем не менее опытный издатель может заработать даже на шахматах – было бы желание. И вот вам пример: хорошо известная Konami решила порадовать владельцев PSP игрой Online Chess Kingdom .

  • Conclusion: Grafiken hade gärna fått vara lite mer tydlig. I början kan det vara svårt att avgöra vilken pjäs som föreställer vilken. Svettigt och jäktigt och roligt som bara den. Som vanligt schack men med en massa små finjusteringar här och där. Den turbaserade strategikartan i handlingsläget bryter upp tempot bra. Ett så beroendeframkallande spel som detta lägger man inte på hyllan i första taget.
  • Pros: Beroendeframkallande, Adrenalinpumpande, Läcker design, Ljudet och musiken
  • Cons: Grafiken, Något långa laddningstider
