Bought the game mainly for casual playing and for training purposes.
Graphics are overall ok. The animated pieces are fun to watch and the standard boards and pieces are looking all good.
Some engines are playing quite strong and rookies will have a hard time to win a match, but i haven't tested out every one yet. I can surely recommend this game for that price.

It's okay. There always seems to be the wonky camera or lame angle issue with all these chess programs, but there is the 2-board in the corner, so I do appreciate & use that. Also, if you'd like to play a buddy online, you'll need to enter in their IP address -- c'mon, really!? But at least there is the means to play a friend (unlike most of these chess programs on Steam). I don't mind that the graphics aren't great -- in fact, I like that it doesn't take much effort for my pc to run it, & it reminds me of cool retro games from the 80's, so it's probably more entertaining for us old farts. There is a large variety of interesting, semi-nifty chess boards & pieces, okay music, (even though Pure Chess has the best music so far) and good chess engines with up to 9 levels. I just wish that all these chess programs would allow you to transfer your game (not just the notation) to FB, without having to record it with another program. That would be cool. Maybe if they made a patch & allowed that, it might even be worth $19.00. But right now, $10 is the maximum, & that seems accurate. Also, it's much better than all of the Fritz engines because it fairly user-friendly, especially with setting up a position. So save yourself money & get this instead. Overall, I'd say, it's decent, but you won't be thrilled & dancing around your living room by it either.
