Summary: This is the best chess program for the Wii -- and that is quite sad. Perhaps the chess market for game systems has completely dried up. All previous chess programs for the Wii were so bad, they were nearly unplayable. Fritz at least has the minimal features and strength to keep the chess fan occupied. For the beginner, Fritz offers training levels of various strengths, chess problems and something called a "chess adventure".
Summary: I'm an inexperienced Chess player, but found the hints helpful -- but the interface needs a lot of work. You basically have to use the control pad throughout the entire game (pointing and dragging at the screen like all other wii games is not part of this game). No online play, and it won't even recognize your miis -- you create profiles from names on the game (unrelated to your mii). Does not see like it was made for the Wii.
