3 out of 5 eggsGood Graphics

Pros: Graphics, tutorials good.

Cons: One con is they seem to have this paranoia about the game being installed on more than one machine, to that end, they require that one of three CDs be inserted. They claim this only has to be done once in a while but everytime I've played it, it asked for the CD.

If you want to have a fast game of chess, it isn't possible, I have to hunt for the CD and go through their bells and whistles to get to the chess board. I find it quite irritating but I also remember the days of Sargon, and Chessmaster when it was much more simpler.

Other Thoughts: Honestly, a simple Chessmaster game, like it was years ago or Sargon works for me. Since they insist on inserting a CD to play, they should take the bloat out of it and keep it all on one CD, no install.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful game

Comments: I don't believe that there is a better-looking computer version of chess available today. The tutorials in this game are very well done (in other words, after going through them all, you'll have some idea what you're doing at the chessboard). A ton of computer profiles to play against, at all difficulty levels. Biggest complaint: online play is buggy, and thus there is usually no one to play. As a single-player game, though, it's nearly flawless.

5 out of 5 eggsI love this game

Comments: The interface is much improved over the last version. I can't beat any character with a rating better than 1100 (yet), but the teaching tools are excellent.
