was Electronic Arts' attempt to enter the niche chess market dominated by Chessmaster 3000
. It has a number of pluses including being based off a competition-winning chess engine, a database of 500 games, an SVGA isometric chessboard and the license of the world's reigning chess champion, Garry Kasparov
. Garry Kasparov pops up in video windows during play to give advice such as: "Your Queen is in Jeopardy", "Watch your Rook" and other context sensitive kibitzing. This was EA's first use of windowed video.
