Yesterday I was looking for some C# analysis tools, but they either were very expensive or came with add-ins like Resharper. Nothing against these add-ins except that I'm not very fond of having loads of extensions in my IDE as it feels like they slow down the IDE too much at times. That can be me, or the solutions I work with, that doesn't really matter, I simply can't stand the slowness. There's however a solution for that, Jetbrains have been so kind to release their Resharper analysis engine as a free commandline tool. This tool does all the analysis solution wide like Resharper but when I want it to do so, which is excellent. The downside is… it produces an xml file which isn't that useful without some tool.
