Chess is one of the oldest and most popular board games in the world today. Even though there are a lot of books that will help you learn and improve, you could choose ChessPartner, as it offers an interactive solution for mastering this game.
ChessPartner is a chess-related program that will allow you to play versus a strong computer opponent or against other players from all over the Internet. What’s even better is that this application provides a tutor mode that will help you improve your knowledge about how to play the game.
Besides keeping a history of the games that you played, ChessPartner can analyze one or several of your games from its database and help you understand your mistakes. Furthermore, the program can also offer some valuable hints for your next-move, helping you out of some “tight” situations.
Like most of the other chess programs, ChessPartner offers a wide array of 2D piece sets as well as a few 3D ones. Unfortunately, the application does not allow you to change your perspective (view angle) or to resize the window for the ones in 3D.
Honestly, I’m a novice when it comes to chess software, but I still think that ChessPartner is worth trying out. Although it lacks in graphics, this program is affordable and helps you learn how to play, so it could be worth your time.
