    A brilliant game with new mechanics that purposely attempt to divert away from chess could sell on its own merits, rather the rely on the reputation of the game it is so eager to alter.

    Chess 2: The Sequel is an ambitious strategy title inspired by the game of chess, which subverts the ingredients with new rules and, above all, new armies, offering an unprecedented asymmetric game. The high price, the renewed complexity, poor AI, the few options and the balance to be checked thoroughly, may, however, represent a barrier to the brilliant ideas demonstrated by David Stirling.

    A lot of thought put into new chess pieces; not enough put toward PC gaming. Also, kinda pricey.

    Given the price tag, I have to seriously question what this game offers. It seems like the greater part of the work went into designing the rules, which can be downloaded for free. The adjustments are certainly intriguing, but there's absolutely no good reason to recommend Chess 2 as a videogame.

A perfect mix of strategy and wit, I think this game is the perfect replacement for chess. It is quick paced, completely unpredictable, and highly re-playable. If you don't believe me, just buy it and see. You will be pleasantly surprised! Expand
