Finding Computer Chess Analysis
June 18, 2014 2:00 AM   Subscribe

When I was little I had a version of Chessmaster on a Windows computer, and the feature I found the most fascinating was that you could have the program analyze an entire game and the moves in it.

I don't just mean that it would give a move a score, or something, but it would straight out say stuff like that a move was strong or weak or good or bad and sometimes even go a little bit into explaining the why it was strong or weak or whatever.

So what I'm asking is this: Are there any programs or sites now that will do the same thing? I'd prefer something cheaper, obvs, but I'm willing to hear what's out there at all.

Fritz is not free, but does this quite well.

Much as I love lichess, it only analyzes the games played on lichess. I like chessx. which is free and does everything.

I used to have a game with that feature for Win98 from Sierra Games called Power Chess. More here.

chessx isn't as snazzy, but I think it will have what you're looking for.
