This is a good game if chess is you're thing, dont expect anymore than plain auld Chess though. Smart simple presentation, and ability to go online with it is is a welcome feature. You can also play 2 player from the 1 Wii console.
This would really have been suited better as a Wiiware title though at a pricepoint of 1000 Wii points. If you like Chess and find it cheap pick it up by all means!
There are many great points about this game. Firstly the ability to go online and play against people from around the world is a good feature. When playing against the computer it is challenging; great prcatise for a chess hobbyist.
If you do not like chess then you will not like this. It is just pure and simple chess. No mini games or special features. The visuals are also very basic. The game is a little pricey for what it is. For the price I would have expected a selection of classic games such as backgammon and draughts.
