Summary: Confirming what others have said "Game works fine in a stock US xbox360" even though it is PAL format. It's a Chess Game, with some mods (optional). You can play standard chess, or kick it into battle mode!
Excellent for Fans of Puzzle or Board Games! Works Perfectly in a USA Xbox 360! (NTSC)

Summary: This is a preliminary review, but I wanted to share some first impressions. First of all, although the disc & packaging says PAL (European) only, it works perfectly well in an American Xbox 360 -- provided parental controls are disabled or set to allow M+ rated games.
Summary: Just picked this title up as there are no other chess games available for the Xbox360! First off, the game is not user friendly, you can't make hardly any adjustments to the look of the game play (remove hints, only 3 piece styles, etc....
Summary: Great chess game, You can play chess obviously, then it also has campaign mode where you are given chess challenges like stop all enemy pawns before they reach the other side, or harder ones as you progress like checkmate the enemy in 10 moves or less. it has mini games that are also very nice.
decent chess game for middle of the road and beginner players

Summary: thank god there is a chess game. the ai on this is pretty decent - at least for a modest player. I am disappointed that this is the only game on 360 and it is European - it will work in usa. the animated pieces make it seems like you are playing wizards' chess (for harry potter fans).
Summary: Not unlike the scene in the first 'Harry Potter' film when Ron was playing 'wizards chess'. Excellent graphics, lots of fun for chess enthusiasts or just video game fans. Mini games are a blast.
