I want to change Field of view in Crysis 2 demo to make it wider. Is there a console like in Counter-Strike where I can type a command, or is there another way to do it?

You sure can! Heres how:

Open : //// C:Program Files/Electronic Arts/Crytek/Crysis 2/Demobin32/Crysis2Launcher.ini

Add the two lines :

con_restricted = 0
cl_fov = 80  (where this is your field of view setting)

Create a shortcut for Crysis2Demo.exe; in its properties write your commands:

E:\Games\Crysis2Demo\bin32\Crysis2Demo.exe +cl_fov=85+r_DrawNearFoV=85 +pl_movement.power_sprint_targetFov=85 +g_skipIntro=1 +r_Glow=0

If you don’t want to mess around with the nitty-gritty file details, there is a GUI-based launcher for Windows:

It works for regular Crysis 2, at least.
