I experience the same problem, its just the way the game is coded, its not you, i usually get around the problem by running. To be honest I think its set like thats because they want you to stealth in the game rather than go around guns blazing, inmy view you should be able to do both without compromising but obviously ubi think differently. The video is probably speeded up so that it makes you want to buy the game more but it dont fool me, i'm gonna a buy it as soon as it comes out simply coz overallits a good game but it does have some fundamental flaws, such as the A.I in the demo, if the enemies are not are without their radio guy then they act totally stupid i like the idea of the enemies not acting as coooperative if the radio guy (enemy leader)is dead but theu should stay act with soiem common sense rather than jusr popping their head of some boxes or a barrel continously until you make the first move (i call that bad coding)

Your judging this game based on problems you have with a BETA demo?????

Videos' speeded up?? are you nuts?? dont be so narrow minded.

good things come to those who wait.

P.S - this game is developed by Crytek, its there first game - NOT Ubisoft - they are the publisher. Dont accuse them of bad coding before the game itself is even released.

You have multiple options;

Shift - walk
default - jog
z - sprint

Sprinting is limited as you tire quickly and need to rest. If you want slower still then try;

Ctrl - crouch
v - prone.

I like the way you can crouch from prone and then drop back prone once you let go of the ctrl key, but please please please make the crouch key a 'toggle' not a 'hold all the time' key I spent so much time crouched my finger hurt after a while.
