It's an interesting concept to have a Director's Cut to a game, effectively doubling the market for the re-release. The newcomers to the game getting to try out an improved version while old hands at the game can experience new content. In the case of Broken Sword, it really works well despite the slower start to events. The story focuses on George Stobbart, an American tourist in Paris, who accidentally becomes embroiled in a conspiracy full of murder and the Knights Templar, oh, and mimes and clowns. Along the way he meets up with Nicole Collard, a French photo journalist, who is also caught up in it thanks to her inquisitive nature. Players aren't just restricted to Paris with the game eventually spanning from Syria to, erm, an Irish pub.
