REVIEW:

Ultimate Chess 3D is a decent chess game, but in the end overpriced. Its description sounds reminiscent of Battlechess, if anyone here is old enough to remember that game; however, unlike Battlechess, you don't get to see the animated pieces all the time - the animations only appear upon taking a piece, the board itself just shows the standard chess icons for a typical chess game. The animations are pretty cool, but you'll quickly find yourself skipping them anyway. As for what's left, it's a pretty full-featured chess game with multiplayer support (which I didn't try) including pass-and-play, which sounds good for most of us who don't have the time to sit down for an entire game at once. The game also includes chess puzzles, which are taken directly from very old books of chess puzzles and are very hard if you don't look up the solution, and analyses that teach you a bit about chess strategy. Finally, there is a store called the "foundry" where you can buy various upgrades to the game like new boards, new puzzles, etc. using "gears" that you earn by winning games (either against the computer or players). I thought this feature would be really neat, but it fell short due to a noticable lack of content in the store. If they add more to the store, I'd say the application's value would increase, but as it is I can't justify giving it the highest price I've ever seen on GIN.
