This CD is worse than it was 8 years ago.
I bought the new version hoping to let my youngest six year old have the same experiance (it is rated for six and up). The new version however is violent and sleezy. The pieces graphically beat each other up and the queen struts like a hooker across the board. At one point when the red king challenged the blue queen, they grabbed each other in a passionate kiss, and she pulled a knife on him. He promptly swore and killed her. Just what you want your child to see and learn.
At the novice level it never makes a mistake, unlike as if playing with another beginner. This makes it so that she has no chance of winning, which can be really discouraging to someone new to the game.
The angle of the board makes it difficult to determine which square the players are on, and at one point it wouldn't even allow a legitimate move on our part.
They have taken all the fun out of this game, it was a useless purchase.
The Battle Graphics are fun to watch even when you are losing.....badly. The game is very smart, even on level 1 setting.
You sold me!!! Oh Ya!! I love the violence, the sleeze, just the ticket to jazz up a boaring game of chess!
Yup, I've had Battle Chess since the old Win3.1 daze, but I really wish they would update it to today's standards. Improve the graphics, and like one of the others stated 'add some drama to the battles', perhaps even add an adult 'R' level (lets put some real sleeze into that slut Queen!!)
