Nintendo Life review:

«While Pure Chess is impressively presented and provides an excellent single-player experience, the online multiplayer component is dreadfully slow and ill-suited to the Wii U. In this regard, Pure Chess seems to favour mobile devices and to some extent handheld systems such as the 3DS; this is a title you?re meant to play for a minute or two at a time before switching it off again. The game doesn't (and we assume can?t) interact with the Wii U?s operating system, meaning that you can?t tell whether a player has taken their turn without having to go through the hassle of loading up the game, signing into the online service and checking the match itself. It?s a shame, because Pure Chess is otherwise a well-made title with a lot of visual sheen behind it, and one in which it is fun to learn or practice chess. If your interest only extends to the latter, then Pure Chess is potentially a worthwhile investment, although you may be able to achieve the same goals with cheaper alternatives elsewhere.»
