Certainly standard issue in my vicinity, Chessmaster 6000 is the start of the more up to date Chessmaster programs.
When I saw that this program came with voice-annotated games, I was highly skeptical as to how they would improve my understanding and playing of chess. But, I stand corrected, they have been done very well and the games illustrate relevant points, thoughts and tactical ideas. What I don't really like, however, are the voice commentaries that come with the auto-annotations and their inclusion in chess-tutor. I feel that they could have picked a better voice for these tutorials. While on the subject, there are some notable discrepancies in the Chess Puzzles that are provided, as after you either make the right move or give up, some more pieces either materialise, or they move about. The hints to the solution occasionally refer to non-existant pieces, which appear after you have given up! No wonder they are difficult to solve, I'm solving a different puzzle!
The automatic annotations of the game are useful, though it's disappointing that they only do one game at a time. I have used a free chess engine in the past that annotated a whole PGN file if you wanted it to (Though, to be fair, not in the natural language that Chessmaster provides, it has to be said). This is one of the main things I look for in a chess program, which bears most of the weight of the review.
For me, the "Practise Openings" option isn't all that useful. I think that this should either include the running commentary on what the opening is and the description of it (Rather like what you get when you auto-annotate the game) or just be plain scrapped altogether. For me, the "coach" option is a better way to practise openings.
The mandatory cosmetic inclusions/deficiencies aside, I hold this program in high respect. But having said that, I'd get a later version if I had a better computer!
