Summary

The most acclaimed PC shoot'em up ever

The Good

Finally a real shoot'em up for the PC after so much wait. Raptor is a PC only shoot'em up which is incredibly fun to play. All the tiny details here and there, ground, air and sea targets, innovative weapons, unique shield system, and finally a both life and time saving save game feature are the pros of the game.

The Bad

Well, it's nevertheless a mindless shooter. Other than that there's nothing really wrong with this game.

The Bottom Line

A classic which is still appealing in today's standards.
