The interface and each individual screen were redesigned to be more easy to use, using a mouse was no longer so much of a hassle and the SVGA resolution meant a world of change for those lucky enough to have a 640x480 display. The game also added audio commentary to the game and photo-realistic pictures used as backgrounds for the many spreadsheets like screens of the game.
