What's great about it: Price; ease of use
What's not so great: graphics are alittle grainy
It seems like a basic chess game, but the game histories are great. You can see games from all the masters in a database.
This will help you game by seeing how they play.
If you don't want to start there, begin playing and the computer will set a level for you. The more you play and the better you get, the computer will move your computer opponents up to continue to challenge you.
Definitely worth the money!

What's great about it: Tutorial and gameplay
I mainly bought this for my dad. His doctor said for him to combat his dementia he should invest in a video that will help him exercise his brain. Well he likes chess and asked if I can teach him. I thought since he has a pc he can play it on the computer. Well this game has been a gem. Even though it took him a little to set it up (I walked him thru) he is having fun and it is helping him with his memory.

What's great about it: Second in "fun" only to "Battle Chess"
I have beat champions in 4 states.
To teach a beginner, I made "idiot" moves so the computer would 'win' quickly. Which it did; three times.
My student got a big laugh when the game then labeled me as a "Pea Brain!"
I did, too. Love the game.
Recomend it? To check the "yes" box is understatement. DEFINATELY!
I would recommend this to a friend!

What's great about it: This program is great and offers many options for playing chess against it.
What's not so great: nothing
This chess program offers everything one would need to play a lot of games. I especailly like the way it tracks your success/failure giving you the total outcomes summarized of all the games you have played against it.
I would recommend this to a friend!

What's great about it: Good learning tools.
What's not so great: None.
One of the best chess game I have come across! For beginners it has good learning tools. For more advanced players it has a large number of famous games that you can view. The low price makes it an even greater deal! Two thumbs up!
