This review is from: Chessmaster: 10th Edition (PC) (Video Game)
This is a solid game for the beginner or the more seasoned player wanting to improve their skills. There are various tutorials and a choice between a training mode, which allows you to take back moves and spend as much time as you like on each game, and a ranked mode, where take backs are not allowed and you have a time limit (which you can still vary to your own preference). The games you play in ranked mode are used to give you an Elo rating of your own.
I particularly liked the personalised nature of the opponents you can choose. Apart from different rankings, they can be tweaked to be more attacking/defensive or whatever you prefer. Overall, this is good value and definitely recommended.
