  1. Though extremely difficult and loaded with useless features, Chessmaster is a good game to have for your GBA collection.
  2. It has 150 famous matches for you to watch, so you can learn from the world’s best games of all time, and progress towards your goal of becoming one of the world’s chess masters.
  3. What was most surprising about Chessmaster was its inclusion of a tutorial that teaches you in set games how to best maximize the use of your pieces, including tricky moves like castles and turning pawns into queens.

    While it still suffers from comparison to the recent PC version of the same series, Chessmaster is the better of the two chess games currently available for the GBA.
  5. Nintendo Power
    It's fun for novices and pros, and the game can help all players sharpen their skills. [May 2002, p.140]

    Easy is Hard - And Hard is a nightmare. Not easily beaten, and if it is there are plenty of options to make it harder.
