"Last in line was Advisor "CB". His nickname was based on "Cattlebruiser", although none of the men were quite sure where the name had come from. Some infantrymen whispered that it came from a particularly bad night back home involving thirteen shots of whiskey, a herd of cattle, and a twenty-two year-old Animal Husbandry major. Others swore on the fact that a bloody cow's head was hung in his locker, a testament of what would happen to the men if they ever got out of line. Whatever the case, CB was fiercely competent."

Hello my friends , welcome to a report made by me , well if your hoping that this is a w3 report you can just .. and if you want sc well .. nevermind this is a report on an oll game i played , just a few minuets ago , it is an exciting action arcade game called raptor . This was origonally intended to become a fanfic with pics , but i like explainig all the details , plus the earlier option would take to much time . I have a life a gf and other stuff ie school so i decided to make this a non-sequel BR .. unless you want more ....

The above picture is my character , each with it's own special abilities , strengths , weaknesses , ect . Lets not stray too far off the arcade blood line , this is no rpg . Now as i described above I am going to try and explain the games mechanics , wepons , enemies and bosses .

Now let me go over a few of the devistating weapons and attachments in Raptor . Like in other arcade shooters , there are some amazing looking weapons , especially the lazers ( my fav !).Many of them are just improvments on the earlier versions , like single lazer and dual lazer ect... I also listed a few powerups including the Shield and Bomb .

The Auto Track Mini Gun is the best bullet weapon , possibly because it tracks the enemy heat signatures and lets go with multiple guns . "The Bomb" is the best missle type weapon because it is just so devestating . The last Few lazers are very impressive , but of course this comes at a price ......

^^ Here are some rare bonuses that any kind of enemy or container could give when destroyed . They can be found anywhere , mostly in containers or ships . The Micro-Fusion Core and Raw Freylium
do NOT come easy , the must be earned by killing hardass bosses ....

Now what would a game be if you could just amass bombs and let them fly at the bosses , Gg? Not very fun is it . This is were the troops come in , the cannon fodder , the expandebles , the ones that make up the majority of your funds . So here you have the bad guys of Bravo sector ( i might br tango and outer later ^-^ ) I have put in those little bars to describe the power ratings of these guys.

I began with 75 life shield , 1000 credits fresh out of the academy on my way to the godly piots guild. I set of on my first mission with my just my reaver guns and a B class fighter . After I had serched a while and my kills were in the hundereds I finally got some missiles!

After a long time of destroying bad guys I finnally killed the first sector boss . I had purchased Micro Missiles , they are always equiped and are good for taking down those extra armoured guys . I also aquired the super gosu firestorm , adding a little energy blast to all my attacks . I also purchased a scanner and a shield .

Now i got my new auto track mini-gun , nothing special without all the upgrades and pre-reques i got . Also i got the dumbfire missles , rightly named because they are so powerful that they shoot off the side until their jets activate and boom!

Finally I got to all the sexy weapons , the plasma cannon that shoots encredibly fast waves of energy , almost coating the screen with destruction . Around this time i maxed my mega bombs allowing me to carry 5 at a time , true screen clearing action happened ! Oh ya also found some ore..

I had a hard time with this boss because he shoots those little orange things out ( very very damaging to shields ) I sold my auto track to get the pcannon so i couldnt kill him from behind , but eventually he paused his onslaut and I killed him after 1 or 2 full patterns . Now on to sector 3!!

This is were the shit gets hard , especially on elite , when you have rows and backups rows of insane missle jets , almost impossible to beat without full upgrades . I also had to abort on the final boss once because i was reckless and taking pics ( you cant fire and prntscrn at same time ;( ) and i had only a small amout of shields left . Also past bosses and mini bosses started apearing making it even harder for me !

At this point im tired of this , i cant beat the final boss for bravo , so i sell of some stuff and get the deathray , buddy you want this .. so amazing instantly clears all the class 1 armour guys ez no prob . Although i had to complete the stage with only 2 shields , no ups and only the ray , it way worth it , so godly , i smash that boss apart , away form his heat cannons . I flew away victorious , the academy was proud , avenging the deaths of so many before me . I left the burning rubble , the once glourious platform..

Well i hope you enjoyed this breakdown on Raptor : Call of the Shadows , i encourage you buy this amazing first gen game . It certianly has good elements of everything . Mabey I could possibly do another rep on this , but Im gonna try and do some good w3 reps when i have some time . For all you newbies out there who think you cant make shit , trust me , use the guids and Br.coms Rep center , you can make BR's just like this!! Thx Br .Com!!, and mark4 for some amazing w3 maps too . Just hope for front page plug....plzplzplz..
