I agree, the ingame browser is total crap & the HUD is consolized other than that I loved the beta demo.
Even when you load the demo it clearly says beta-demo that is why I'm not going on any rants (yet). Everybody should know by now that it came with low rez textures and does not look anything like the final product.
The Crysis demo does not support Quad core or SLI it's obviously not the final code but gamers complained anyways.
I'm starting to understand why we are seeing less & less demos released before the final game.
