Summary: I bought WII CHESS for my son that is 9 and he wants to learn Chess. Perhaps this product is not good for WII as it is quite static and WII is made for games with a lot of movements, but I liked the rapidity of delivery and the good conditions of the product.
Summary: ITS TOO GOOD AT CHESS, LEVEL 10. ALL IT DOES IS PLAY CHESS, NO DATA ON GAME AS TO HOW YOU ARE DOING, NO OPENING MOVE NAME RECOGNITION ie THE ENGLISH OPENING, NO CHANGE OF BOARD/PIECE SET-UP. ALL IT DOES IS PLAY CHESS. AND TOO OFTEN TAKES TOO LONG, ESPECIALLY WHEN I THINK ITS LOSING THO IT NEVER DOES!!
Summary: Bought to give as a gift to a keen chess player, so I cannot comment personally, except to say that the recipient loves the game and will sit for hours playing it!! I think that speaks for itself.
Conclusion: Well it's just chess with the wii remote for Â£18 thats a bit pricey they should of released it as all time classics like on the DS so u get 50 games for your money but if your rich this could be the game for you
Conclusion: Up to 10 levels to get to grips with. For the average player things start getting tough from level 4 onwards. I`ve been on line and had no problems connecting to other players from around the world. You can either connect to players of the same rating (You start off with 1500 points and from there you either gain or lose points) or any ability. Theres some pretty tough players out there! You can choose from two time matches either 5 or 20 minutes.
Conclusion: This is a good game if chess is you're thing, dont expect anymore than plain auld Chess though. Smart simple presentation, and ability to go online with it is is a welcome feature. You can also play 2 player from the 1 Wii console. This would really have been suited better as a Wiiware title though at a pricepoint of 1000 Wii points. If you like Chess and find it cheap pick it up by all means!
Conclusion: There are many great points about this game. Firstly the ability to go online and play against people from around the world is a good feature. When playing against the computer it is challenging; great prcatise for a chess hobbyist.
