    I'd rather buy an authentic chess board than play chess on my Wii. Nice find none the less. :-]

    If you're already able to get on a computer you can probably play online chess for free so I'm not really interested either. I have a Star Wars chess board anyway :-D

    Yup

    This is a game that would sell only on Xbox Live Arcade for like 400 MS points which is like $5. They're saying its gonna be 30 euros which is like $45. But even on XBA it wouldnt sell much because you can just play chess on computer for free or in real life.

    Meh it might be decent, good for younger kids as well, stimulate the brain, play Wii chess instead of reading books.

    Jus cause its not a full on action/adventure game doesnt mean its crap and no1 wants it.

    Hey, there are some people here that play chess. Most people who play chess hardcore on the computer or on a game system want there to be really awesome computer AI that has different personality settings and stuff like that unless they're pretty casual players.

    You can get free interface programs to play chess. Then, you can get an engine to plug into the program to use to run a game of chess. Last time I heard Rybka was the best chess engine.

    Here are some free chess programs and you're supposed to be able to load engines into it as well.

    30 euros, or 20 quid?
    what the fuss is a quid?!?!?

    lol anyways, i think it's be interesting to play chess against people online, considering you can't just be 1337 from playing by yourself.

    Wow Mario Galaxy finally has some decent competition!

    I would rather sit in a bath of rusty razor blades than play this pile of dog tripe!

    Even though I love playing chess, I am still going to avoid this title. :lol:
    Most budget titles are not very good, so this game may follow the same path. Anyway, nice find.

    I love playing chess, but I can't play without real board and pieces. My concentration goes from 100% on a real board to 20% on a screen. Even the most basic chess game, I can't play it... can't concentrate... dunno why, but I'm only good (and pretty good) on a real board one.

    I been playing chess since 18 years ago and I been on some chess tourneys (I even won a couple) but on computers/consoles I suck like hell.

    A budget chess title. Hmm well i think that is a good thing. Chess is a great game, it does require you to use your brain though so maybe thats why its getting such a hostile reception. Other than that i cannot imagine why people would put it down without knowing how good the opponent AI is.

    It obviously wont have the same kind of draw that say a Mario themed chess game would have (something like Battle Chess if you are old enough to remember that game on Amiga) but it may be a great title for Wii owning chess lovers who dont own a PC and want to play friends who live far away.

    I have a Star Wars chess set too but i find it hard to get anyone to play me because i always win.

    you don't have to eat cheese to play with it...:smilewinkgrin:

    maybe you use the wiimote to do fatality moves when you kill a player.
