If you managed to grab Shadowgun for the BlackBerry PlayBook late last night when it was released, you'll want to go ahead and grab the latest update which is now appearing BlackBerry App World. At launch, some folks saw that the game was running a little bit slower than it should have been and the graphics were not as good as expected.

While there is no change log to accompany this v1.0 update, a quick run through of the game looks to of have improved upon some of those issues. If you're not seeing the update as of yet or are getting errors trying to download it, sit tight it's there and will filter out soon enough. Also, drop us some comments if you're seeing improvements with this release.

Will probably download this after my Playbook is shipped to me...

Proudly a member of TeamBlackberry, and in it for the long haul.

playbookster

Yes everything was fixed with this update. Looks and runs great! Thanks RIM for the free games!

Vic_Franklyn

Sweet game. Havent felt this kind of excitement since RIM gave us Asphalt 6 for free. Thanks RIM.

Getting an id error 35005 strange.

sylvaing

Still can't download the update. Keep getting this error (35005). Tried a fresh reboot, didn't help.

sylvaing

Got fed up. Deleted the app and re-installing it. It's downloading so it's a good sign...

Dammerung2010

MUCH better!!! Textures look 10X better and framerate is much higher! The intro movie is working now too!

Dammerung2010

Oh and even with all the improvements the file size is still the same as before, just 348mb.

chaosdivine

Massive improvement. Textures are improved and high definition and gameplay is much smoother. Splash Page is not a black screen. I am liking this game a lot but two things bug me. The controls are hard to look and aim and shoot all at once and you have no idea how much life you actually have except for the blood that enroaches on your view when you get shot a lot. There is some tearing when you move and look at times, it views through his head and neck. I know that sounds strange but when it happens you will see what I mean.

This is a great game thus far.

Bobert_123

It was SO BAD last night that it was un-playable, now its one of the best games for th PB!

BB_Bmore

I don't get it. I must be special. I didn't see any of these issues last night or today while playing, everything looked as it should. I can't be the only one.

Bla1ze what's the 2.1 beta build up too???

robtanz

I had no issues either. I was really confused that everyone hated it. Now I understand.

drummer_god

i didnt have issues with it on the first day either.

Revord

I got it, and was impressed with how quickly they got the update out. It was horrible but it's much better now.

playbookster

All those people who left 1 star reviews for this game on appworld are dicks. Obviously there was going to be an update as the game was v0.35

-katar-

Sweet!!!
Everything was fixed, love it..

Vector-SS

This sucks as I can't download it as it's "not supported by your current device profile" Any ideas? I'm living in the Middle East, and I was able to download their other games :(

sdk1

Same here in Saudi.

togardergrosse

Phew..
Was disappointing last night when I downloaded this.
Graphics was way worse than 9mm. But can't complain for a free game.
Turns out it was still in Beta (v0.xx) and now is the real deal!

daglesj

I guess someone at Union uploaded the wrong version at the weekend.

Oops.

RubberChicken76

That was my take on it. There's no way a game could make that much of an improvement overnight.

Wasp14

This game surprised me with how fun it is. It borrows heavily from Gears of War, so if you're a fan of that game you'll enjoy this. You can't beat free!

jhspears

I can definitely see a huge improvement with the graphics and play of the game now with this update! Pretty good game and it's free!!

swervable

When i started my game I could not view the opening sequence. I could hear it but not see it. The game played very well though.

Everyone but me hates BlackBerry at my work.

thecsman

Nice game. Good they pushed the 1.x as soon as they noticed.

This is definitely a treat from RIM and UNION! Thanks guys!

sdk1

Not supported on my device, maybe you guys in North America and Europe have some other version of the PlayBook or Union and BlackBerry has some problems in bringing this to the Middle East.

mughni

This Discrimination by RIM is so frustrating. Can somebody "Kevin" please explain why are we in the Middle East being left out?

WTangoFoxtrot

we need a VIDEO review already ! i tried showing someone this game and there wasnt a single video on youtube of it running on the playbook.

masqueofhastur

I'm surprised they didn't release 1.0 to start...

Aalap

so tired of looking and trying to bypass all the shit to get this game heard/read all reviews and i cant get it can someone pls extract the file and put it up for download i saw 1 person trying but not sure if it has been done already.... (in the middle east)

masqueofhastur

Still can't get past that sentry drone, I'm sure there's something simple I'm missing, but I miss the days of shooters when everything could be solved by doing enough damage.

Rootbrian

We need team crackberry to boost the ratings back up. Idiots just don't understand apps anymore. A good one is ruined by trolled ratings. :(
