This chess game works as described. Good price and excellent product. Have used other chess games and this has proven the best to date.

Great analysis June 17 2012
By Dillon E. Price - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD-ROM
I really like this. I got it from target, for $12.00. I also have chessmaster 10th edition. Fritz has amazing analysis features. I like putting on infinite analysis and going through my games and basically bouncing my ideas off the computer. Fritz can tell me if my idea is outright losing or playable at the human level.--The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that the user interphase is a touch complicated and not really intuitive. There are features that it possesses that you won't use or won't know how to use. At first I felt like I was using a super computer for addition and subtraction. It has huge potential, but you have to read the help files to figure out how to get the most out of it.--All in all if you spend some time in the help files it will be of GREAT assistance to you.

I wouldn't reccomend it for someone looking to play a weaker computer. Chessmaster 10th edition has the rated "personalities" that play at a lower level and gradually get difficult. Fritz is really more like 2800ELO or 1500ELO and not much room for any variance.

Clumsy & Obnoxious. Sept. 4 2012
By E. R. S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD-ROM Verified Purchase
I was looking to upgrade from an old "Chess Master 6000" game. I decided to try Fritz Chess 11. I was immediately turned off by the clumsy handling of moving the pieces on the simulated board. A problem that makes playing difficult due to the constant re-moving of said piece. On top of that, there is the annoying programmed banter of your opponents voice that sounds somewhat like the "Luck Charms" leprechaun. Fun you say? It gets old real fast.

While the game engine seems formidable, the aggravation level is beyond expectation. I should have expected it for less than $10? I'll keep looking for a replacement to the Chess Master 6000. Until then, I don't like it a wee bit!

Chess engine with high rating and graphics - best for the price! Oct. 18 2012
By J.B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD-ROM Verified Purchase
Fritz 11 has an ELO rating of 2914. For comparison, the highest ELO rating ever achieved by a human is only 2851 (Kasparov in 1999). This chess engine will trounce any human that has ever played the game. This is the main reason I got this chess engine - to analyze and follow games involving top-tier players, especially world championships. Although there are higher rated chess engines (Rybka, Houdini), their graphics are very poor, and Fritz 11 offers one of the best visual graphics among the various programs available today.

Fritz 12 and 13 have already arrived, but the improvements are minor and they are priced much higher (triple the cost or more). For the price of only $6.99, you can't beat this product!

---------------------------------------

There is a review complaining that the installation DVD is required every time one runs this program. Not true! Here is the procedure I used:

Insert DVD. Run "Setup". Install program.
Restart computer.
Start Fritz11. You will be asked to insert DVD again and click "OK". Then enter the registration code.

After this, remove DVD - you will not need it again!

My son is 7 years old and loves this program. He is using the beginner level and it's very useful for teaching opening strategies

not what expected! Jan. 1 2013
By BOBO - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD-ROM Verified Purchase
The cover and product material would lead you to believe this game has many piece and board options - it does NOT. IF in fact there is a 3D capability it's not apparent or accessable. Sent the Company an e-mail complaining they sent me a patch that didn't work. Waste of time and money! No wonder it was cheap!
