If you want a chess program to take you from your first steps with the game to the lofty height of becoming a Grand Master, Fritz 8 is the perfect answer.
So that's it, that's Fritz Chess 8 for you. If you're into chess you're into Fritz Chess 8 but even if you're only a casual chess player or perhaps someone who hasn't played in a long time I think you may be pleasantly surprised at just how much there is to be gotten out of this program. If you're not into chess its your loss as well as mine, I guess we'll just have to make do with Half-Life 2 and those other poor excuses for games.

Ohne Online-Funktion ist Fritz 8 - abhängig von der Rechnergeschwindigkeit - der stärkste Computergegner, mit dem Sie sich anlegen können. Doch erst gegen andere Menschen macht Schach richtig Spaß. Immerhin sorgt Fritz dann dafür, dass sich kein Spieler unfairer Hilfsmittel bedient.

Spätestens seit dem beachtlichen 4:4 gegen Weltmeister Kramnik gilt das deutsche Schachprogramm Fritz 8 als bestes seiner Art. Das Programm passt sich Ihrem Können an, sodass Hobby- und Vereinsspieler in Fritz einen gleichwertigen Gegner finden. Lobenswert ist der Online-Modus: Fritz 8 verbindet Sie mit dem Server, auf dem Sie kostenlos spielen können.
