"At the lower level, the Wii takes pawns with reckless abandon, but remains savvy enough to require thought and planning to beat. Meanwhile, the top-end difficulty can flatten experienced players in just a few minutes.
However, despite being fundamentally solid, there aren't enough features here to make Wii Chess a viable buy. There's no verve or flair, no style or pizazz.
It's a basic, rudimentary game, and we're pretty sure that if it wasn't by Nintendo, few would give it a second look. Stick with the real chess board for now."
