    I don't like Chessmaster 10th Edition so much. You can buy Fritz 8 Deluxe for the same price and it is better in every aspect. And the online play that comes with Chessmatster is a disaster. It is a hassle to get in and there is just nobody playing. With Fritz 8 Deluxe you get a year of free membership to Playchess.com and that is the largest chess server in the world!

    Chessmaster still pales in comparison to the Fritz Chess Engine .. Do yourself a favor - save your money and wait for Fritz 8 Deluxe.

    As complete a chess package as you could want, although it's missing a few friendly touches. [Oct 2004, p.88]
  2. It is also extremely demanding on your PC, and will downright frustrate a laptop user for the constant processor usage and potential heat issues. Otherwise, it is a lush game with extras (look at the Fun Area-- made mostly for kids) that keep it fresh.

    This truly is worth every single penny. As a novice to chess myself, there was a variety of tools and features that I'm sure will enable me to enhance my chess skills.
