That's insane. Who the **** screws up a game some much it needs that kind of update.
You should have seen the game when it was released. They didn't screw up the game, they didn't finish it. Seriously, the game was completely unplayable for a month when it was released (multiplayer part, that's what the patch is updating).
Also, it's not Battlefield 2 Bad Company. It's Battlefield: Bad Company 2. :P
