Recensioner

“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.”

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

About This Game

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.


FEATURES:


  • 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

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.

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.

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.

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.
