It's not the most powerful chess software. There are a handful of chess engines that are significantly higher rated than Chessmaster. Aside from that, 11th edition is already out, so Chessmaster 10th ed. can't possibly be the strongest.
The Chessmaster series is great though. Real user friendly.
Again, it’s not Elo OR USCF. Chessmaster uses its own rating system, which may or may not even closely correlate to an Elo or USCF rating.
It's safer just to call it a rating. Leave Elo out of it. :)
That doesn't make it Elo or USCF. :)
why don't you understand that chessmaster ratings are NOT uscf?
it's fun to be incorrect and look silly? i don't get that. uscf is not chessmaster, and chessmaster is not elo. what's 'fun' about being dead wrong and letting everyone know it?
i'm just trying to help you. if you claim that you are uscf rated because you play a video game, someone is going to call you out on it because it's 100% incorrect.
meh, if you don't mind being incorrect, go for it. :)
CM is a great program. Probably the best chess software for beginners because it offers an all-in-one package- challenging computer play, extensive introductions to basic chess concepts, good presentation (with the voice narration), simple puzzles, a decent opening book, and even a game analyzer (which will catch major blunders).
It certainly inspired me to take an interest in chess. That said, it's not without it's flaws...
Chessmaster is such a silly game. In one of my game, it sacrifice like a piece in the beginning. Sure, my King is then exposed and vulnerable, but that is small compensation for the gain in material.
