Online Chess Kingdoms

Playstation Illustrated
9 February 2008
  • 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: Vicious Cycle and Infinite Interactive took a Bejeweled hybrid game and combined it with an RPG experience to make a masterpiece known as Puzzle Quest. In the same vein, Konami (developed by Leviathan Games) took the age-old game of chess and created something along the same line, though calling it a masterpiece is a large stretch. This isn't your gentleman's game of yore.

  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Chess has got to be one of the oldest board games in history – right up there with Snakes n Ladders. But seriously, a game of chess requires concentration, skill, planning, and strategy. That pretty much all goes out the window when playing Online Chess Kingdoms for the PSP. Though the game does a valiant attempt to make the game of chess accessible to everyone, it ultimately is nothing more than just another chess game.

  • Summary: Online Chess Kingdoms ist etwas für Gelegenheits-Schachspieler und wird im schwierigsten Modus wohl kaum eine Herausforderung für Experten sein. Für Anfänger hingegen ist gerade der niedrigste Schwierigkeitsgrad eine gute Möglichkeit, das Schach spielen zu erlernen ohne großen Frustfaktor. Eine Kampagne zieht sich allerdings ziemlich lang hin. Fazit: Für zwischendurch ganz unterhaltsam, aber letztendlich nur etwas für diejenigen, die sich mit Schach beschäftigen.

  • 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 .
