Raptor: Call of the Shadows reviews

Computer and Video Games (1994): "Raptor's an excellent 256-colour blaster loaded with power-ups, bosses and just about anything else you could ask for in a game like this. It's simple, but that's what makes it even more addictive."

PC Gamer (1994): "Satisfies the appetite for destruction and looks good doing it. Like all shooters, it gets a bit repetitive after a while. This one's about the best-looking PC shoot-'em up around."
