The fan-made Unofficial Patch removes many bugs and adds multiple features like widescreen support. It can be downloaded here.
The Unofficial Patch is available in two flavors: Basic and Plus. The Basic version consists of bugfixes that do not dramatically alter Troika's vision for the game. The Plus version makes more significant changes including the reintroduction of cut content and numerous other improvements that go above and beyond what the developers may have intended.
Note: Due to its regular update schedule, not all versions of the Unofficial Patch will be compatible with all mods.

Update (24/07/14): It has recently come to attention that the creator of the Unofficial patch is actually falsifying updates and deleted content and has been using other mods codes, or placing a mod into his patch, without permission. Changes that he has made have either never been apart of the original designs of Troika or dropped ideas that never got past the planning and implementation stage. Please use the "True" patch for an actual group of fixes to the game.
