War Chess is a modern retake on the classic game of chess, which is one of the most popular board games in the world. Instead of playing with standard chess pieces, the roles of the black and role pieces are played by the forces of Darkness and Light and there are plenty of cool animations to accompany the different chess moves.
Battle of the Minds
Each of the different chess pieces has been beautifully transformed into characters and animated to dramatic effect in War Chess. While the queen, king and bishop take on human characters, the knight has been cast as a unicorn, which can sometimes fly around the board. While this can be fun at times, people who are seriously trying to plan their next move and need to put their little grey cells to work may equally find the graphics to be a bit distracting and unfortunately there is no way to modify the animations or turn them off.
Reimagining a Familiar Game
People who enjoy playing chess and are looking for a whole new way to get in on the action should make sure that they take a look at War Chess. However, despite the animations and cool graphics, War Chess is basically the classic chess game and people who do not usually enjoy playing chess may prefer to find another game to turn their attention to.
