I do that between different Windows system I use. In my case I use Microsoft's Skydrive and I create a symbolic link to Windows' Saved Games folder within it. Seems to work OK - got ScummVM and my current in progress [Under a Killing Moon run under DOSBox] game data in there.

UK didn't get a release of the 2nd game, US version "Wanted" didn't get the bonus copy of the 1st game. French and German copies of the 2nd game could indeed come with the bonus but they will be localised.

Did a quick run through of the intro video and the first scene using English and German copies of the game (I have both).

There was a release of the 2nd game in the series that included a free copy of the this but I'm not sure if it wasn't only for German/French editions.
