Summary

This is still one of my favourites

The Good

Raptor had lots of things going for it. Replayability in all the difficulty levels, non stop action, loud sound effects, amazing graphics (for the time), and cool weapons. It's really hard to get from one end to the other of the game but you can save where you are in between levels so you don't have to start right from the beginning if you lose.

The Bad

The loud sound effects were good, but they were *too* loud. The gameplay gets bland after playing it through in elite difficulty 2 or 3 times.

The Bottom Line

A fast paced shootem' up I would suggest to any fan of the genre.
