Grandmaster Chess is a good example of chess gaming in the early 90s. It contains a myriad of customizable settings, including 3D and 2D boards, multiple skill levels (five), a menu-driven mouse oriented interface (not a given during this the era) and nice SVGA graphics.
Grandmaster Chess does have its share of nice features. The game contains in it's repertoire a library with nearly 12,000 positions drawn from more than 4,000 opening variations and an option to add your own opening positions. Also, the game contains a collection of boards and pieces to use with fully customizable display options. There is also a VCR-like Replay/Review option. Grandmaster Chess also allows you to give the player a chess rating.
