As an aspiring financial mastermind, you've got access to loads of business resources. Hiring lawyers, analysts, brokers, press agents, and even international spies is just a few clicks away, and methods of maneuvering through the markets of New York, London and Tokyo have never been simpler.
Each scenario requires the player to manage stocks advantageously in order to survive in real-life situations (plummeting Internet sites, imminent NASDAQ crashes, skyrocketing jewelry values, etc.) and come out on top for your employer, the daughter of the late financial guru Lord Fleming. Unfortunately, the game takes place in only four concise areas: your personal office, employee resources, stock markets, and the local bar. Get used to seeing these few screens a lot, because there isn't much more to Day Trader than subtle trading strategy and stat-checking in the offices. Tactical bliss for some, boring tedium for others.
