Product Description

Platform: PC/Mac

Product Description

Queen from B4 to E7, checkmate. While normally the game would be finished here with little fanfare, BATTLE VS. CHESS takes the moment of victory a step further. The queen gracefully glides across the game board towards the King, a victorious smirk adorning her face. As she approaches the King's square her hands begin to faintly glow then suddenly plumes of fire spring forth from her outstretched hands and engulf the King leaving nothing more than a pile of ashes on the square formerly occupied by one of the competing rulers of the checkered kingdom. Now that's checkmate!

BATTLE VS. CHESS 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. The groundbreaking introduction of vivid 3D conflict animations and optional action integration elements provide a very special breath of fresh air to the classic game of chess. Employing ChessBase's world renowned FRITZ! chess algorithm software, even the most experienced chess experts will be presented with a daunting challenge.

Manufacturer's Description

Developed by Gaijin Interactive, Battle Vs Chess aims to bring the classic into the modern age, without removing the essential gameplay that has made it popular for centuries. Familiar chess pieces are brought to life, with players seeing the spectacular results of their actions in their quest for domination of the board.

Traditional white and black armies have evolved into the powers of light with their brave knights in shining armour, or the wicked dark army of demons and beastly golems. Each piece is intricately animated and as players move them around the board they spring into life ready to wage war. If a square is occupied by an enemy unit, they enter into a brutal clash that sees the foe removed from the board in bloody combat.

Another evolutionary element is the addition of the optional Action Mode. If selected, instead of entering a scripted animation when attacking, players challenge their opponent in a beat-‘em-up style arena. Using a variety of weapons, fighting techniques and combos, players must best their opponent in a fast-paced flurry of blows and special moves –adding a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘check mate’.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great way to learn chess 19 April 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Verified Purchase
My partner decided to try to teach me how to play chess. I love the way this game is animated. Ok, it's nothing majorly special in it's effects, but for someone wanting to learn the rules and movements of the game, it's a great way to learn. I don't have access to my chess board at the moment, so have played this loads to try to beat the computer. I've nearly managed it, but not quite just yet!!!

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I can't get this game to work.
Installed O.K, typed in serial number.
From reading the instructions I should of been able to play against the computer... but no... I haveto activate windows live or something.
When trying to connect to server it says 'can't find server' even when I've disabled my antivirus.

It's the next morning, & no problems with the server when trying to connect (on the third time) a message from windows had popped up saying it was blocking the game & did I want to unblock it. Problem solved.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute rubbish, don't bother 23 Dec 2014
By AndrewE
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Verified Purchase
This product is complete junk. Please don't waste your money buying it.

I tried to install it on my laptop which took ages and then it would not run. It just started and then dumped out with a rather obscure error message. No indication of what the problem was. A bit of time with Google revealed it was a graphics driver problem.

I then tried to install it on my desktop instead, a bit quicker to install this time, but after install just presented a totally black screen. After a lot of fiddling I managed to get it to run but nothing much happened. It seemed to be going into the game but again no graphics, this time just a message saying 'no binded' splashed across the entire screen. Both installs added a menu to the start menu but only added a load of web site links on the menu, there is no link to start the actual game. You will have to search around your hard drive folders to find this. Note also it install windows live as part of the install. This is not mentioned until after you have opened the package where it is written on the inner packaging.

All in all this is a total failure. Don't waste your time or money.
