    This is a dream game for anyone interested in chess. I would have given it a 10 if the ai didn't take unrealistic amounts of time to move. Sometimes their moves are instant, and other times they take seriously long times for simple moves.

  1. If Chessmaster upped its production values, it might be worth a look to casual chess players who just want to get a game in here and there. [Jan 2005, p.90]
  2. A top quality game that did not short the consumers or insult the seasoned players by dumping a low-end game for the sake of having a chess game for the Xbox. It's a joy to play, and keeps me wanting to come back for more.
  3. Chessmaster presents an unparalleled chess experience. Though Xbox Live compatible, you will rarely ever find anyone online at all.
