Shoot Crysis 2 developers was not afraid to open its beta to the public. As a result they had mix reviews about the beta, which isn't the finally game like every developer shows in their games before people play it. Those gamers who think the beta is like the finally project are ignorant, and don't know nothing about gaming. The purpose of a beta is to give feedback to the developers on what needs to be improved.

Should've just stayed silent then released a demo.

Going out of your way to tell people they're not getting something isn't going to do them any favours.

"At the same time, with some betas being used purely as marketing tools, some players treat a beta the way they would a demo, and they expect everything to be fully working and polished."

Whilst this is true, it's not really the fault of the developers, and more the fault of the dense-folk taking part.

not a really smart move....beta's are meant to help the developers and i know there's a lot of ppl that dont report bugs and just complain about beta's....but also it lets them try it out to see if it's worth buying....without even a demo this game wont see gr8 sells even though this game looks amazing though...u kinda need hype to sell

well this game isnt even coming until May, so how do we know they wont start hyping it later? Plus I believe Borderlands didn't have a demo and it did really well, nor did it have a ton of hype, just a few commercials and journalist previews about a month before release is all they needed.
