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.

Chessmaster pioneered the use of Natural Language Advice, so that players could get tips for moves through simple vocal cues from the computer, in easy-to-understand English.

This year's launch features a revamped chess engine, which plays at an even higher level than before. Chessmaster 8000 has also taken its visual look, already the best of any chess program, to another level with the addition of several new chess boards and sets, all done in crisp 16-bit graphics.

If you love the game of chess and would like to improve your game, Chessmaster will help. It’s nice being able to have a game of chess whenever you choose. Many people regard Chessmaster 8000 as the ultimate chess simulation, they might be right.
