Pure Chess review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Pure Chess, a downloadable game from VooFoo Studios on the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 3. Pure Chess is a simple game of chess...no frills, no gimmicks. And when you're playing offline, it's also a fantastic game of chess. You have tournaments to play against surprisingly smart AI opponents, as well as the single game mode and chess challenges. The game also controls well, but a chess video game has one advantage over the real thing—the ability to play with friends across distances. Unfortunately, Pure Chess doesn't use the online advantage...to its advantage. This video review features video gameplay footage of Pure Chess for the PlayStation 3 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.
