I loved playing this as a child and yes it was exactly for the reasons quoted in the review, that is the funny animations. Did not take it all that seriously though, because I cheated a lot (I think you can place the pieces yourself? Or at least you can make the AI super dumb).

Yet on those rare occasions I gave it a try later on, I noticed how this is the one and only gimmick Battle Chess has to offer, and it did not really hold up.

Yes, the reason i never mentioned it in the review is because i had never gone so far as to discover how powerful a player it is ;)

Behold the most unusual and exotic chess game yet, where all the pieces have come to life and are ready to re-enact in combat mode what have up till now lingered in your fancy only, if at all. In this game you enjoy not only the great many entangled schemes and clever tactics of capturing and checkingmating your opponent as far as the established tradition, but also the great many ways of graphic violence and execution which is the house special here and possible only in a computer game. Hence Battle Chess.
