  • Summary: [WiiWare] Silver Star Chess has two modes: 1-Player and 2-Player. 1-Player mode allows you to play a chess match against the computer opponent. 2-Player mode allows you to play against another person. In 1-Player mode, you can select one of five different computer opponents, as well as turn the background music off, adjust sound effects and access in-game help features. Also, during the match, you can redo your last move, save the game at any point or resign from the game. After the match has ended, you can review each move made during the match. While reviewing the match in this way, you can resume that match at any point. [Nintendo] Expand

    It's barebones, it's not going to let you challenge anyone outside of your own physical company and it's hosted by some pretty static and boring anime characters that seem to have no real point or purpose other than to just take up space on the screen -- but it's still chess.

    While it would have been nice to have more features, what Silver Star Chess offers is a mediocre chess game. With a $5 price tag, this title is justifiable if you’re a fan of chess and want a chess game for the Wii, but if you’re a beginner looking to learn the game, this certainly won’t get you to start playing.
  3. Offering no variety and serving as little more than a quick way to play a game of Chess against a computer opponent, Silver Star Chess should be viewed as nothing more than a place holder to give you your Chess fix until a better representation of the game comes along.
  4. While Europe and Japan have launched Wii Chess, which has better graphics and a bigger variety of game options, the American Wii has as the best (and only option) chess game Silver Star Chess.
