What's new in Wall Street Raider 7.70:
- In the new version, if you choose to have computer players, you first choose the total number of players (2 to 5), and then specify how many HUMAN players there will be.
- Since we have often noted in long games that a very successful computer player may sometimes accumulate control of several hundred companies, we have placed some limits on the number of companies each computer player can control, after which it will (usually) not attempt to acquire control of any more companies.

A detailed simulationThe main window of the application can feel a bit overwhelming with its numerous options, buttons and data. However, most of the application's functions and features are neatly grouped into the several categories. The left side of the window displays commodity prices, a status display for the currently selected company or corporation and the player's balance sheet.
Search and research functions are grouped above and below the news headlines, ticker and game status displays. These enable users to plan their actions and predict the best course of action.
Transactions, which are actions the player can undertake, and the game's menu have their own dedicated spaces above the stock quote list.
In order to survive, players, just like in real life, must keep themselves up-to-date with the current status of both their opponents and every other financial entity in the game. All of these are simulated in detail and the information is available through multiple screens.
Users can take various actions based on the information provided. They can trade stocks or commodities, buy out companies, engage in harassment and rumor-spreading against their competitors.
Once in a while, users are faced with choices of a moral nature. Players owning large defense and aerospace corporations might be approached foreign states looking to buy missile guidance technology for nefarious purposes. These choices help keep game-play interesting.
ConclusionThis engrossing and comprehensive simulation can provide a challenge for even the most confident and well versed economist or gamer.
