  1. The complete lack of an online community makes half of the reason to even pickup the game worthless, leaving single-player and ad-hoc multiplayer modes, which are futile when you have a computer or chessboard on hand.
  2. 40
    If you love to play hours of chess against an opponent who is often much better than you are, then this game could be for you. However, be aware you will have to stomach a terrible storyline in order to play the single player game.
  3. The stylistic, themed pieces (aquatic, chaos, etc.) all look the same unless you squint, and the lacklustre animations have no purpose other than slowing down play. [Apr 2007, p.118]
