On January 10, 2012 Square Enix released a demo on the Playstation Network. Generally speaking, the demo of a game is not fully indicative of the game’s final polish. Seeing as how Final Fantasy XIII-2 is already out in Japan, I think it’s safe to presume that this is a good indication of the overall game. You can expect about 45 minutes to an hour’s worth of game play depending on how much you leveling you work on. I really enjoyed the demo. If you aren't entirely sure if you want the game or not, I think you should give the demo a try.
