I was hesitate about the invasive DRM, however it was on sale, I like chess, so I decided to give it a shot. Potential buyers you will be pleased to hear that the invasive DRM has been removed (atleast for me). As for the game itself, it is chess. It is what it is. I like chess and I wanted to have a little fun watching animations. It is not the GOAT chess game, it is a chess game with animations, straight up plain and simple and that is why i bought it to play and little fantasy. The animations are great if you want to play in windowed mode look into the cfg file, overall fun chess game. I recommend for the sale price.

No idea what happened, but this no longer works on OS X. Until it is patched, do not buy it. My game is forever stuck in the corner of my display at full screen - won't run in a window, and going into the video settings in the options menu causes the game to crash.

A fun spin on playing the classic board game. The real life combat adds a tasteful exsperience while keeping your mind sharp and trying to beat out your opponent. I remember playing a game like this on regular Nintendo as a kid so I had to try this one.

It has a very annoying DRM, not only requires a Nick and mail (and that’s too much already) it is mandatory for you to give a name, address, phone… a lot of PERSONAL data for no reason that I can’t find its logic.

Do they have a second business apart from gaming selling databases to sponsors or who knows?

I ALREADY had installed it, my HD broke down and now it wants to register again

PLEASE don’t encourage companies with these disgusting practices buying their products.

A throw back to Battle Chess from the '90s, Check vs Mate offers up several modes of play and an AI that will keep you on your toes. The visuals/music are well done and make for a nice atmosphere to play your games. If there is one complaint I have against the game it is that the multiplayer is broken. It would have been nice to play against actual players once and a while even though the AI does provide a challege. Overall, if you are looking for a single player chess experience with a nice presentation then Check vs. Mate should fit the bill.

Best Chess game I've seen on the market. The graphics and different styles of play keep it from being overly repetative. I like chess but playing it over and over again on the basic black and white windowed box that comes standard with your OS usually gives me a headache. So I would reccomend this to pick up the scenery a bit. 10/10. It looks fancy, runs smooth, is challenging but not impossible. PvP is really what caught my attention, kind of nice to have that option through steam. Anyways it's chess sooo if you like chess it's worth picking up in my opinon.

I decided to write a review for this since there's a great deal of misguided, negative reviews for this gem of a game. I bought Check vs Mate because of course I enjoy chess, but what made CvM stand out was that it had done FIRST what no other chess game had done: Animated piece fights to the death. This small detail added into an already awesome game made CvM worth looking into. I played it, I enjoyed it, and the only reason I don't have a whole bunch of hours into it is because I forgot how much "fun" playing against AI can be compared to a human player, and none of my friends had bought it until recently.

Please ignore all the hateful reviews that are blatantly lying about a "Horrifically invasive DRM". I'm not a fan of DRMs, but CvM had no such DRM as described. I literally only had to register the CD key, and I started playing right afterwards. If you wanna complain about an annoying DRM, look at Uplay. To clarify, CvM came out August 16, 2012 whereas Battle Chess: Game of Kings came out March 17th, 2014 so people need to stop claiming Battle Chess came out with the animated piece fights first because they need to get their times straight.

I'm honestly starting to think a lot of this hate is coming from people who are bad at chess and wanna take it out on the game for not holding their hand, so they come up with lies to make people not wanna buy the game.

It's good! And for 86% off for $2.79 (currently), you're not spending a whole lot of money taking the risk.

Horrifically invasive DRM. I thought this level of "give us all of your personal information and register immediately and have an active internet connection" type DRM was gone... or at least publicized.

As for the game... it's a terrible Battle Chess wannabe. And it's easy to tell why they were forced to change the name. This is certainly not in the spirit of Battle Chess. No charm, no character, and the animations (which you can't zoom in nearly close enough to enjoy) are canned and generic and the developers seem to think that particles can replace variety. That's not the case.

I paid 3 bucks for this and I'm a bit upset about it. That'll teach me not to check the reviews page!

It is animated and has some nice looking graphics, but does not give you more than one ai opponent and one chess set. No tools for rewinding your game to see where you went wrong, or sugested opponents that chessmaster had. There are maps to choose from but only one chess set, all you can change is the background. If the oponent wins the game with their queen, she will bounce her ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. No way to check where you rank, if you are improving or not. The tutorials are simple to the point how peices move, no strategy. If your looking for animated chess and dont mind using one chess set, there can be great fun in the various challenges and play modes. Graphics are nice looking with fantastic animation and sounds. If you are learning chess maybe you can benifit from the tutorials to get you started, but this one is more for someone who is bored of the traditional chess peices.

Also threefold repetition is not recognized.

Bought it to play solo vs AI. It's quite nice, with nice chess pieces that's well animated, in beautiful environment. AI is challenge enough for a mediocre chess player like me. So I'm quite satisfied.

However, I just read a bit more about the DRM in this game and you might want to check this discussion out before buying this:

Terrible game. Limited options. You can't save the progress of a game, and there is no clock, nor any way to set up a position. Might be fun for a quick, casual game, but not a good choice for chess training, or even for extended play.

Buy at your own risk. Check vs Mate offers a profoundly confused game concept utilizing shoddy storytelling and nonsensical game modes to advance a single gimmick, chess as warfare. Punishing optimism with an exposition that even fails to accidentally tell a story. Without an active online community of players, narrative, or strong chess engine Check vs Mate cannot compete with free alternatives. Chess.com, Chesscube, Chess24, Redhotpawn and ICC are all better for straight up chess. Or if you want a twist: Chessmaster, Fritz, Rybka, Blitzin, Dasher(Stockfish/Fruit/Shredder/Crafty) and Battle Chess offer coherent chess variants. Check vs Mate is lost somewhere between a wheel spinning exercise in self deception and a text to speech app bugging on the phrase "Slow Children at Play".

Not worth the paper it is printed on.

Started up a "Campaign", where the first battle's goal is to capture all the opponent's Pawns. I was given a legitimate move with my King to capture the last one, but because that put me in a "Check" position after, I wasn't allowed to move him. Wait a second... wasn't capturing the Pawns the entire goal?! Apparently not.

To add insult to injury the entire game is basically copied from Battle Chess, which is why the name changed. And the DRM isn't that graceful.

Save your money and get it (if you dare) in a bundle.

Multiplayer mode doesn't work! This is single-player chess vs the AI, with some alternate game modes.

The different game modes are interesting, but the controls are unpolished in some of them (why are there quicktime events?)

It's hard to play with the animated pieces but the graphics can be changed to standard chess pieces.
