Shotest Shogi - Xbox Live Arcade review

What is point?

For

  • Well executed
  • Nice tutorial
  • Meet Japanese people!

Against

  • Ultra-obscure
  • May hurt your brain
  • Who will play with you?

It%26rsquo;s Japanese chess, if you%26rsquo;re wondering. Whatever possessed Rubicon to choose an ultra-obscure game like this for their debut is beyond us, but they%26rsquo;ve done a great job of making it, and of teaching you how it%26rsquo;s played.It%26rsquo;ll be big in Japan; over here, not so much. A great way to meet Japanese people?
