    Checkmate NTSC !!!

    I hoped Nintendo to release that as a Wii Ware, a DVD is not worth Chess Game [​IMG]

    There would be better to have something like 42 All-Time Classics on the Wii

    Chess originated in India, where its early form in the 6th century was chaturanga, which translates as "four divisions of the military".

    I think EVERYONE can agree with that, but of course the Chess must be a lot better than in that game.

    And... only english? shouldn't it be multi?

    Isn't a way to trim down ISOs for download and then span them back before burning?

    looks like the developers and nintendo doesnt even bother to try and make good games..
    seems like they are saying "oohhh yeahh weve got that motion controller thingie, so we can give them whatever junk we want...

    Instead of looking stupid in front of everyone, you could have typed "chess wiki" in about 0.78 seconds in your search bar.

    Was getting excited about this when I saw the name in the portal. Then I saw the box art [​IMG]. It looks like Commodore 64 graphics. It should have been 3D. No Chess game has ever beaten Battle Chess on the Amiga for originality and playability. I am amazed though they've actually put wi-fi on it for online play.
