Early impressions of Chess 2022 - Customer reviews

The new program is absolutely delightful and I am already having fun with it! I will never know how good the machine is at the high levels of play but it seems uncanningly human at the enthusiast level.
--TT, South Africa

Computer play is quicker and uses less RAM.  Positional play is stronger.  Endgames are stronger.

Chess 2022 customer review
Using Chess 2022 on tournament level I was really surprised when I tried the Queen's Gambit trap I learned online. The program saw the trap and did not take. Very clever.

Chess 2020 customer review
Really good work. Simple, clear graphics; but best of all, there are more difficulty levels and these are not created out of thin air but very well designed, so that an amateur or child can improve and one can enjoy chess instead of beating the first level easily and then being decisively defeated in the second level.
--Martin, Czechia
