I have played a few computer chess...

Strengths: Excellent graphics, great tutorials, TCP/IP direct play, and many more!

Weakness: None that I can think of.

I have played a few computer chess games, and have found Chessmaster to be the best on the market. It has been consistently a solid, advanced PC chess game. With all of the personalities to choose from, it makes play feel like you're playing a real person. If you get tired with computer play, find a friend & play on-line! The graphics are the best that I have seen in a chess game. I highly...

Although I've only owned...

Strengths: Very strong engine; great teaching aids; fun "kid's" room; highly customizable interface; varied personalities.

Weakness: Poor chess boards; non-intuitive behavior in some screens.

Although I've only owned ChessMaster 9000 for a day, I have owned previous versions for many years. I would still use ChessMaster 6000 today if it worked with Windows XP.

I bought this chess program for my...

Strengths: Level of competition has a wide range. Good graphics, many chess sets to choose from. Easy to install.

Weakness: Rather complicatied for my 11 year old

I bought this chess program for my eleven year old for Christmas. It is his first chess program. He was able to install it himself. At times, he was overloaded with info. Too many things going on at once for the beginner. But it is a program he can grow with. Was recommended by his 6th gr.math teacher.

I tried to find a chess product....

Strengths: really good for kids and adults' playing

Weakness: big software.

I tried to find a chess product. This Chessmaster 9000 may be the best I am currently thinking. It is hard to write a review because I am not a writer and I still need some time to feel about the product. Hope you will enjoy playing like me. My son and I like the chess.
