  • 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.

A Good Budget Game that Could be More Fun

  • Excerpt: "I've played Wii Chess a few times at a friend's house. Both of us being keen chess players he'd recieved this game or Christmas 2008, and thought it would be interesting and fun. The engine used for Wii Chess is certainly strong enough to compete with most club level players, with 10 different levels. The interface is easy to use, requiring just the d-pad and button presses. You can play against the program, against other people in te room or best ...
  • Pros: strong engine, online is busy
  • Cons: no correspondence option, no use of miis

  • Excerpt: A good chess game this. Has all the features that you need. But it has a basic feel about it. The chess engine on single player is good and with the various levels you can give yourself a good challenge. My only problem with it was that when in two player, the other player can also move your cursor.

  • Excerpt: I never really understand these games because in my opininon you may as well just play them for real as its always going to be better when it comes to interaction and reality. This game is fine and not much i can really say about it, its chess, simple and plain. Its user friendly there are different levels to work your way through. You can play other people. The graphics are quite poor but then that doesnt really matter on this, as it doesnt need to rely on the.

Limited but promising

  • Excerpt: "Wii Chess is the cheapest Wii game I have bought new. Sadly, there was a reason for this - it does not feel like a full game, but rather something that would be more suited to a download service such as the upcoming WiiWare. However, for what it is, it manages to be pretty fun. So, congratulations to Nintendo then - they managed not to ruin chess. The game contains little of the Nintendo flair fans may be used to, and there aren't even any specially-themed ...
  • Pros: AI for any player, online mode, low price
  • Cons: Graphics, no sparkle,

  • Excerpt: "The third Wii titled game is Wii chess after Wii sports and Wii play and it may struggle to compete with them. Wii chess may be brilliant for you if you love chess but if you don't love it you may have to keep your money in your pocket. It does have all the features needed for a chess lover including the review option where you can look back at your game and improve on your strategies also you can customise your board with different backgrounds ...
  • Pros: Buy if you love Chess
  • Cons: Only one game, chess on the disc .  Only for Chess Lovers

Wii Echecs

  • Summary: Wii Échecs est un jeu que je recommande à tous ceux qui aiment les échecs et qui ont un niveau plutôt prononcé, car les niveaux de l'ordinateur sont assez forts et il n'y a pas d'explications concernant le jeu, les prises... Ce jeu est très basique, avec des graphismes simplistes et une prise...
