    Probably the best chess game that ever graced our systems. Battle vs Chess is full of superb modes that give the classic game a "twist", and an A.I. based on the Fritz engine that will give a good challenge to new and experienced gamers alike.

    Technically neat, but the problem lies within the nature of 3D chess games: It's confusing at times, and the mini games pretty much alienate the original game. Chess fans, however, will find long lasting appeal and a lot of challenges to take on.

    Battle vs. Chess is probably the most extensive chess game out there. There are a ton of modes and the animations of the fighting chess pieces are very nice. It's just a shame that the camera is positioned poorly and there really aren't that many people playing online.
