    Pure Chess on 3DS boasts a decent presentation and plays far more competently than many other video game adaptations, but I suspect this port may be the poorest version yet of an immaculate experience.

    Pure Chess on the 3DS is a thoroughly competent piece of software, which in some respects stands out on the system's eShop.

    It's just a shame that the online component isn't as strong as it should have been.
