I tried patching call of duty world at war to the latest 1.7 patch. But it says that I have to download and install each of the previous patches in order. Some of the earlier patches (which contain map packs for multiplayer) are over 1GB each. I'm not going to go through all of that hassle just to patch a single game. I have no plans on playing it online either, what a load of crap!

hey, I did mine, not that big a deal. Just takes a little time. I think you will be happy with all the patches.
