- Excellent way to play chess with friends- April 8, 2017
I played a solid round of chess with a friend over PSN and it was a blast chatting and playing. You can set timers and pick from an assortment of styles for the pieces all of which look incredible. The soundtrack is equally stylish and well assorted in a way that really drives home the classy quality of a game of chess. The CPU can be nigh impossible even on a setting of average which can be disheartening. Also, the assortment of environments to play in is not that varied. But for 20 bucks, you get what you pay for and when that includes a polished game of chess with friends around the globe who you can chat with via headset, there really isn't much to complain about.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Serious chess players need not bother:- September 17, 2015
When I first got this game, it kept crashing when I'd attempt to connect with other players. It turned out not to matter because there is no clock or time control you can set for the games. So anyone you get in a winning position against simply refuses to move. I wasn't able to finish a single game because of this, and my game slots are now all filled with unfinished games in permanent limbo. This is utterly inexcusable to not have the most basic of chess features: A CLOCK! Pure Garbage.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
- Chess in all of its glory- January 18, 2017
20 dollars seems like a lot to pay for a chess game but your really paying for top quality. The boards and pieces glisten while the soundtrack is surprisingly varied and fits the mood of the game. If you are a newb to chess, there are tutorials in the game to accomodate you. I do wish there were more than 3 boards to play on but the fact that you can share play with friends who don't even own the game is outstanding.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
