I've been playing the Xbox360 demo version. It can be fun, but it's stripped of the larger macro-gameplay elements of it's predecessor. Instead, you'll be focusing more on the development and equipment of your character this time around, with a default attack move coming into play upon matching the new "fist" icons. Gone are the stars and coins in the puzzle grid, a match I never made anyway unless I had nothing else. Also, the environments are much smaller, exploration of dungeons and such.

Like I said, it's a fun game, and it can be addictive, but it definitely feels like a stripped down version of the original. Even the art direction and graphics are lackluster and feel half baked. The original had quality artwork and a nice style and a charm about it that this iteration does not. I'll be waiting til it goes on sale

I have the exact opposite opinion of the graphics. While the first game used an odd mashup of anime and generic fantasy, PQ2 has a consistent style and beautiful artwork.

Is there a PC demo version ?

Looking forward to the PC version. The resultant sleep deprivation not so much, though, hehe.

By the way, they are doing some soundtrack promotion on Facebook where you can listen to a few tracks. Even works without having an account.

IMHO it feels like PQ2 is PQ1 and vice-versa. Still fun though
