Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut is a Playstation 3 re-release of the polarizing 2010 Xbox 360 title that follows FBI Special Agent Francis York Morgan as he investigates a shocking small town murder. The original was released on both Xbox 360 and Playsation 3 in Japan but only the former was sold in other regions. Even with its limited release, a cult following developed over the years thanks to word-of-mouth advertising and high profile play-throughs. Thanks to the existence of this unexpectedly devoted fan base, Swery was presented with an opportunity to finally bring the title to Playstation 3 for regions other than Japan. This re-release not only gave Playstation 3 owners access to a previously exclusive title but also gave Swery an opportunity to address some of the issues that plagued the original release. The Director’s Cut promises an updated game play experience with revamped controls, new lighting and texture work, brand new cut scenes, and downloadable content to enhance your stay in the town. Being a huge fan of the original, there was no way I could pass up an opportunity to play the enhanced version of one of my all time favorite games so I’m sure it won’t come that much of a surprise that even with some unexpected technical hiccups I really enjoyed revisiting Greenvale in the Director’s Cut.
