Chess Live is another in a long line of digital Chess games. Unfortunately, this one doesn't do much to set itself apart from the pack. All of the basics are here and the game supports multiplayer. It allows you to track your statistics and choose your matches.
You can choose to go back if you want. The multiple difficulty setting for the games AI adds to the level of challenge. Multiplayer support increases the game's reusability. The chat function is nice.
It's very easy for players to use the back option to essentially stall the game. When trying to move the bishop to a diagonal spot, the game said invalid move, when this clearly was an appropriate move. Shorter time controls would also be nice.
