Chess Pro is based on the chess program used by Microsoft's MSN chess and by far the top ranked chess program on Android: "Chess Free". The core of this is the chess engine "Treebeard", which uses a human-like probability based tree search not commonly found in chess programs, but that delivers a more satisfying human-like playing style.More

Beautiful but poor interface
This game looks great and plays well but the interface needs work. The forfeit button is large and prominent on the screen, and accidently brushing it will cause the game to end with no option for retrieving the game. There should be, at a minimum, a confirmation screen prior to actually closing the game. Also, tracking past games, such as moves lists, seems like fairly basic functionality this game should have.More
Best Windows 8 Chess App
Not sure why this app is only at 3 stars because it has the major element that all the others in the Store do not have. Intelligence. It's really nice you can adjust the AI as well. I will tell you that level 1 is way too easy unless you are just beginning. Level 5 is just about where all the other Windows 8 Chess apps play at. Adjust this app all the way up though, and you are playing a very skilled opponent on the level of tournaments. Highly recommend you save your time and money, this is it.More
awesome...after win7 its the 1st time i've found a super 3D chess game with timers, themes and 'change difficulty' options.More
Solid chess game - best I've tried for Windows 8
Behind the simple, easy to use interface is a serious Chess engine. Level 1 is easy enough for my kids who are learning, and level 10... well, I don't know, I play on level 4.More
I am getting a message that the program won't load and I should go to the store for more info. What info ???More
Finally A Chess Game That Really Works
It works and looks decent too! All the rest really either don't work, crash or are very poorly designed. Still not near as cool looking as Chess Titans. I can't believe that all those games from Windows 7 were dropped in Windows 8More
