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.

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.

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 8
