The basics are taught to you via lessons ranging from explaining what each piece is and how it moves, and even the best ways to play said piece...to some of the more advance moves like "castling," but it's not all about teaching; Chessmaster includes a rigid points system that allows you to play ranked and unranked games on or offline, whereby you can play opponents below your level, at your level, or that far exceed your level in hopes of improving your skills.
Whether you are looking to learn how to play chess, wanting to dust the cobwebs off of your collegiate game you once commanded, or looking to challenge current day chessmasters...Chessmaster is definitely the game for, and is a steal at its' current price.
The plethora of opponenets is great and the computer AI is tweaked to perfection but there are some things that make this game a bit annoying. One of these things is that the boards are a tad bit small. It is very hard to see your pieces unless you are either squinting or have your nose touching the screen. Also, I've found that most of the boards are hard to play with by the way the pieces are designed, so most of the time i'm playing on the simple figurine style. And last but not least, the chess battlefield sucks. I really dont need to explain it, it sucks. Yeah sure the pieces slay eachother, but when you cant remember if that guy is your bishop or your queen, it creates a problem.
But lets get back to the pros shall we?
I love how you have a rating, especially if you're a beginner because it makes it very simple to find a reasonable opponent, not some program that is going to whoop you in about ten moves. Also I like the tournaments. They're cool because you can choose them on what type of player you are, such as a defensive player, or a trader.
Overall the Pros outweigh the Cons by a landslide. Great game, great price... This is a must have for any chess player; master or beginner.
Especially like the audio explanations in the "school" portion. Overall, a good buy, very pleased, lots of tools to improve chess as well as play solo games against computer. Would recommend it.
and still it's like getting a new game. I was not sure if my "fat" PS3 80gb(B/C) would be able to recognize the media format but at the price of this used game I couldn't pass it by. At the first chance, I loaded the game in my old rig and was recognized within a few seconds...I then went to play what ever was offered...I can't believe I never purchased game.
