    Check vs. Mate could have been very good if the developers hadn't been lazy with character animations, or if someone had taken the time to write a legitimate story.

    Puts a little twist on general chess. Is it worth your money? Yes. But it isn't worth your time, unless you are specifically looking for a chess game to play with friends. While other modes are fun and all, it won't keep you coming back. Full Review »

    I am surprised of how much I liked this game. Probably the most innovative chess game out there and quickly drew me into the chess world. Definitely worth the price you pay. Full Review »
