“Check vs. Mate has to be the best Chess game I have seen on any console, it is both stunning visually and challenging. It is suitable for any level of player skill.”
93 – XboxLiveAddicts

“Probably the best chess game that ever graced our systems. Check vs. Mate is full of superb modes that give the classic game a "twist", and an A.I. based on the Fritz engine that will give a good challenge to new and experienced gamers alike.”
90 –

“Simply triumphal! An imaginative, challenging trip into the vibrant chess game ever!”
96 – MediaReview


Commanders, assemble your armies! CHECK vs. MATE calls for an interactive feather duster, chartering the successful chess game principle into the present day multimedia world. Animated fantasy figurines assemble in magical worlds and await your command! As a Commander, execute skillful maneuvers on the game board and catapult yourself directly into the battle with devastating attacks, chessman vs. chessman.

Chess – the unrivalled champion of strategy games has been attracting players of all ages for countless centuries. CHECK vs. MATE is based on the simple yet ingenious concept of creating a fusion between professional chess software and upbeat, combat oriented game mechanics, complete with richly animated game pieces. At the outset of a match things seem quite basic: a 3D game board pits two opponents against each other in a seemingly ordinary game of chess. The game board itself is set in one of six available environments, each with its own unique landscape and presentation features. Traditionally recognized game pieces have been given a facelift as hulking stone golems and beastly chimaeras take the place of the typical rook and knight pieces respectively.


  • Multiple richly crafted army sets combined with 6 different gameboard environments introduce an unheard of visual complexity
  • Two gripping strategy campaigns with 30 missions and 30 different mission goals
  • Interactive 3rd person action mode
  • Beat'em up fights in six unique arenas with each of the twelve characters
  • Challenging PvP duels together on one PC over LAN and Internet
  • Utilizing the famous Fritz! chess algorithm, equipped with 10 distinct levels of difficulty, as well as an extensive opening library, participants of all skill levels are provided with an appropriate degree of challenge
  • The state of the art 3D graphics engine powers the breath taking visuals through the incorporation of HDR and particle effects
  • Cinematic quality animated sequences pull players into the action of the game
  • The innovative fusion of professional chess software and action oriented fight-ing simulations result in a strategic action experience unlike anything before

So loading this game up required me to register a bunch of personal details... input cd keys etc.

The game itself can be normal chess, but you arent there for normal chess... There is a ddr mode for some reason, a few small minigames...

But generally you are playing the game for its combat which is pretty much a hack and slash. You control one of the piece and hack and slash on a battlefield whenever 2 pieces meet.

Ignore actual strategy in this game, its all about reflexes...

Now, if you wanted to play normal chess, you wouldn't care about the combat mode. You would just play normal chess. You are getting this cause of random fights.

Extremely invasive DRM. Had to provide my home address and phone number to activate. Also this game can only be activated for one installation. If you need to reinstall it, you will have to email the developers. Do not buy.

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.

AI on hardest difficulty takes 10 minutes to move.. and it's just the second turn. Ain't nobody got time for that.

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.

I decided to try out this chess version while it was on sale, despite all the negative complaints. The complaints were accurate and a fair representation of this product. If you're looking for a Chess game, this isn't it. That is all.

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., 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".

I bought the game thinking I could play multiplayer with my friends on Steam. This is not possible at all, the multiplayer only functions locally on your computer through LAN or Direct IP. Do not buy if you want to play chess with your friends on Steam.

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.

This was the first chess game on Steam after the free chat games were shut down. Check vs Mate is total crap. Instead of this buy "Fritz" or "Battle Chess: Game of Kings" if you want to play chess on the Steam network.

Very well done spin on classic battle chess by adding some very good new game modes like The hack and slash game mode that takes the normal game of chess to a whole new level and gives it a step above regular chess in the fun department. very good game .
