Summary: These guys seem to have approached Online Chess Kingdoms with a sensible formula: make the game slow and make it distracting. In doing so they stepped it down a notch to deliver one of the worst chess programs I've ever played against.
Summary: This is the most exciting chess game on any platform because of the animations. Level 4 (Master), plays excellent chess. Chess sets are very creative with distint music. However, there are issues. 1) After the same position repeats 3 times, the game doesn't draw.

Summary: I really liked this game until I came upon a position where I had made a mistake and I could only repeat moves. After three times repeating the position it should recognize the Draw. Needless to say, it did not, so after about 10 tries I finally gave up.
Summary: THE ANIMATED CHESS BOARD IS COOL, BUT I PREFER PLAYING WITH REGULAR PIECES. IF YOU WANT TO PLAY WITH REGULAR PIECES, THE GAME MOVES VERY SLOWLY. THE GAMEPLAY IN BETWEEN CHESS MATCHES IS TIME CONSUMING AND BORING. THE GRAPHICS ARE GOOD, BUT THERE AREN'T VERY MANY CHOICES OF BOARDS OR PIECES.

Summary: I am not a seasoned chess player, but I do enjoy playing the game. Online Chess Kingdoms is an excellent way to learn and practice strategies. I appreciate the fact that it has varying levels of difficulty; I win often enough that I don't get frustrated with playing, but I lose just enough to make...
