Product Specifications

Selling over four million copies and winning numerous awards would be enough for most software programs. But since its launch over a decade ago, the Chessmaster series has remained the most dominant franchise in the history of chess software. The new Chessmaster 8000 follows in the footsteps of its highly successful predecessors, with a whole bundle of new advanced features. Its revamped chess engine is the most powerful engine available on a personal computer, playing at grandmaster level at its top strength, while stunning new chess sets in new 16-bit graphics please the eye. The game includes an entire endgame course by International Master Josh Waitzkin. Using examples drawn from Josh's own tournament games, it's the equivalent of several books on the subject - and a lot more fun besides! The exclusive "Match the Masters" feature by noted chess author and teacher, Bruce Pandolfini, adds excitement and a new level of gameplay, and with an improved interface, new animated cursors and the new Natural Language Advice specially aimed at kids, the game has a new appeal for the younger audience.
