Fritz 8, like previous versions, is a training tool for chess players of all levels. It includes tutorials and other in-game training aids to help you get the most out of your games and learn from your mistakes. Chess can be a very serious game, but with the comical King Fritz acting as your teacher and opponent, even people who have never played chess before can learn and enjoy the game.

This newest release features photo-realistic virtual 3D boards that zoom and tilt to suit your viewing preference. Fritz 8 also contains a huge 500,000+ games database, including historical matches like those between the world renowned chess champions Bobby Fisher and Boris Spassky, and Napoleon versus The Chess Automaton.
