Good chess game but...

... should have time control for online games. Would definately be 5 stars otherwise, as the AI is challenging and the chess sets are really nice and clear to see. However without time control online, opponents can just refuse to move.

Exactly what it says on the box... PURE CHESS! This is not a bad thing, however i cant help but want more. BATTLE CHESS! ... A game from the 90's on the Atari ST. It made chess a bit more interesting to them who would not normally play. Back to PURE CHESS... the game looks amazing and the set pieces are very varied, but i would like to see a LORD OF THE RINGS set to play with. Hopefully the devs will read this and add it.
