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.

Maybe to complement your point about the animations distracting from the core game rather than enhancing it, while probably sufficient for children and beginners, the AI's playing strength is rather bad.

Now you see the violence inherent in the system!

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 ;)
