The 24 Games of Christmas! Day #20: Battle Vs. Chess

1 min read

It’s that time again! Michael Buble’s smooth voice serenades us over the radio with his brilliant rendition of “Let it Snow.” Houses are covered with bright lights, tinsel, green and red colours. Children anxiously count down the days, hoping they were good enough for a visit by Santa.

It’s a magical time, with one other little benefit – most of us also have breaks over Christmas. Breaks means time to play games!

It has been a great year for games, and no doubt there are some great ones that you’ve missed. And so we at Digitally Downloaded will count down to Christmas with one game recommendation for you each day.

Enjoy, and happy holidays!

Day #20 – Battle Vs. Chess
Matt S

This game really wowed us earlier in the year. We all have fond memories of those dodgy battle chess games from the early days of CD Roms, and we bought into this game expecting a nostalgic rush and nothing more.

Instead what we got was an incredible remix of the game of Chess. There were even some clever beat-em-up rules thrown in for an action experience to go with the classic strategy.

Throw in some clever AI and some gorgeous visuals, and this is right up there with the best Chess games ever.
