    "Not sure if its the best idea."

    February 28, 2013   |   By tsdeane

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    no idea. not been able to start it up yet.

    Cons

    not been able to get it to work yet in win7. installation puts in 7 toolbar, downloader, internet backup program, Advertisement program, and invisible updater. some can be opted out during install.

    Summary

    look for other chess programs 1st. unless your are willing to buy the full install version. I suspect it may only install the program and let you opt the other installations. AS i have not been able to get it to work yet my opinion may be a bit biased.

    "Too many features only available in paid version."

    February 17, 2013   |   By GARYFOOTE

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Easily beaten on lower levels which is good for beginners.

    Cons

    Can't access higher levels unless you buy it.
    Some annoying features can only be changed in paid version.

    Summary

    A trial of the full version would make it's evaluation easier. I don't think it is suitable as a free program since too many features can only be used in the paid version. Many features in the free version are annoying to an experienced chess player.

    "Loads too much does too little"

    April 03, 2012   |   By Scarecrow237

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    You can play chess with it.

    Cons

    There is far too much bloatware associated with the title. It asks for too much info about me before it works, it doesn't work without internet connectivity, which tells me that it is sharing stuff I don't want it to share.

    Summary

    This is not worth the download.

    "Easy to use and install"

    February 07, 2012   |   By wranglerjeans

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    As a diversion it is OK. The free ware version is limited in choice of opponents but particularly for beginners , it is good.

    Cons

    The opponents in the intermediate range, which is all that is available, make too many stupid moves, thus making the game too easy.

    Summary

    Overall, a good choice, but will probably need the upgrade for tough competition.

    "it's free and it's great!"

    February 02, 2012   |   By uechapa0648

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    great for beginners/novices (my g-kids for instance, 6 & 7)
    has tutorial
    you can set level of play
    during play you can request a 'hint'/recommendation
    very forgiving (you can undo a move when needed)

    Cons

    none (hey, the silly thing is free!)

    Summary

    i bought my g-kids a chessboard and a couple of books for them to learn and so we could play once a week once they've learned but they were dragging their feet having to read and try to play, etc. with the 100% free chess game it's a piece of cake --they quickly picked up on the moves per type, etc, and after an afternoon playing with it they're ready to begin to play and beat grandpa ... and it's freakin' free! later they can upgrade once they're ready...

    "Basic game only"

    December 27, 2011   |   By delbarry

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Good for beginners

    Cons

    Will only give you minimum level of difficulty

    Summary

    You would have to pay for the whole program to find out how good it was windows 7 has a stronger chess game

    "The free download is only to lure you into buying."

    December 22, 2011   |   By Shadeburst

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Nice graphics. Hints and legal moves display.

    Cons

    Suicidal sacrifices by the computer opponent ruin the game. (Same with Chess Titans regrettably.)

    Summary

    I won't actually uninstall it just yet, not until I find something better anyway. Back in the 1980's Borland's Turbo Chess beat the heck out of this version... sigh.
