THE GOOD: Strong Chess Engine, Chess Lessons up the wazoo, Online capability
THE BAD: Makes me feel like I'm not very good at chess
SUMMARY: I think this game is fantastic, it was beyond affordable, and you get a lot for your money. I've had the game for a year and still haven't made it halfway through the lessons. I really enjoy the online gameplay and there is a website dedicated to playstation 2 chess players at <a href="http://www.ps2chess.com"><font color="red">ps2chess.com</a></font>. There is lot of other extras that I don't mess with, such as: chess problems, ratings, battle chess, multiple 3D chess boards, analyze your game positions, blah blah blah. I figure if you have even a tiny interest in chess, its worth the investment. I hate to admit it, but, I play this game more than any of my other console games. It turned me into a chess nerd.
