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 ;)

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.
