Because you need to download the game. How else would the game get on your computer?

It still has to get certain KEY FILES from dowload - to insure (???) you are not hacking the game. This is a big problem - you paid to own the game - but apparently you do not REALLY own the game - it is just one time/price long term lease.

Then you'll be complaining about having to manually download and install game patches -- which Steam is downloading for you right now.

Also, check your download region within the Steam Client. Ensure the region specified is one that is physically close to you.

you hate waiting you've two factors to fix it, you can change both factors or one of them.
Factor 1: Your PC-upgrading a PC can change the speed of any DLs not just game DLs (DL=Download).
Factor 2: Upgrade your internet connection.- This can be done several ways. A) Upgrade your internet package your ISP provides. B) Change your ISP (Internet Service Provider). C) Change your location from one place where ISP sucks to a new location where the ISP is awesome.

If you have the disc you might have wanted to have tried this... https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=5357-FSQM-0382&l=english... what they say or usually you can turn steam off then install the game in the steam directory, assuming you've given steam your key code and the download started... After that right click under the local files tab verify the game cache, usually either of these will save having to download the entire game.
