SEGA Master SystemACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment) (Nov, 1989)
This is a welcome addition to the Sega's shoot'em-up catalogue. The only other decent horizontal blaster is R-Type - which was a bit glitchy and perhaps too much for the SMS to handle. Cloud Master is just right - fast, pretty, and tough.
SEGA Master SystemComputer and Video Games (CVG) (Dec, 1989)
A frustrating, but nevertheless enjoyable shoot 'em up which features the weirdest characters you'll ever pump full of laser.
SEGA Master SystemLe Geek (Jan, 2008)
While the in game music is decent enough, the sounds are rather blah. The bosses are also a bit underwhelming. But the game offers enough to keep me coming back to discover what new, unusual enemies await. (Bowls of rice, anyone? Spinning cat heads?)
SEGA Master (Oct 18, 2012)
Le genre des shoot'em up accueille un nouveau venu en son sein qui, malgré une absence d'innovation en termes de gameplay, se démarque sans mal de la concurrence en offrant un environnement vraiment dépaysant et un personnage tout droit sorti de la mythologie chinoise. Si vous êtes amateur du genre ou de cette culture ancestrale, il serait dommage de décliner cette invitation au voyage fort rafraîchissante.

Overall Cloud Master has some strong elements that are generally ruined by the aforementioned problems. It's really a shame. I've only seen the arcade version, never played it, so I'm not sure how well this has mimicked the original, for better or for worse. It would be interesting to see, but after playing this I doubt I would want to. I'd rather die repeatedly for free than for a dollar or five.
SEGA Master System1UP! (May 15, 2004)
Ce n'est pas un mythe, ni un désastre, Cloud Master n'est qu'un petit jeu moyen, franchement trop dur et pas assez joli, qui déçoit surtout de ne pas tenir ses promesses en fantaisie et atmosphère orientale. Il a pour lui une bonne maniabilité et une animation solide (les sprites sont bien animés en particulier celui du héros) qui ne permettent toutefois pas d'égaliser la balance avec le reste. Voilà ce qui arrive à force d'avoir la tête dans les nuages. Si l'on accomplit l'exploit de terminer le jeu, le personnage reçoit le titre de "super humain le plus fort au monde", comme quoi les développeurs avaient bien conscience des talents nécessaires pour finir leur jeu !

All in all though, the five rounds will give you a fair challenge the first time through when you don’t know what’s what. Of course, once you do, you’ll find yourself clearing the game without dying, even while eating and sending BBM messages. It's a bit easy and a bit short, but a fun way to spend an hour or so, or maybe even a day. Cloud Master has tepid and disposable written all over it, but its accessibility is its saving grace.
SEGA Master SystemPower Play (Nov, 1989)
Einerseits sind alle Spielelemente von “Cloud Master“ in dieser oder jener Form schon mal in anderen Spielen vorgekommen. Auf der anderen Seite wird das Sega Master System nun nicht gerade mit neuen Ballerspielen überschüttet. Freunde des Genres finden sicher Gefallen an dem Spiel; schließlich will man halt wissen, was denn im nächsten Level kommt. Im Vergleich zu ähnlichen Sega-Spielen wie “Phantasy Zone II“ und “Power Strike“ schneidet Michael mit seiner Turbo-Wolke jedoch schlechter ab. Für mich ist Cloud Master ein Mittelmaß-Modul, das man nicht unbedingt haben muß.
SEGA Master SystemASM (Aktueller Software Markt) (Oct, 1989)
Insgesamt ein schwacher Abklatsch bereits tausendfach dagewesener Ideen. Nicht kaufenswert!
SEGA Master SystemElectronic Gaming Monthly (EGM) (Dec, 1989)
An extremely frustrating and difficult game. Action-filled backgrounds that are highly repetitive make it difficult to stay interested for very long. A dull game that, because of its difficulty, becomes more frustrating than enjoyable.
NESVideo Game Den (2010)
All in all, Chūka Taisen is fun but it fails to make any lasting impression - in that respect, they did stay pretty close to the original arcade game.
SEGA Master SystemThe Games Machine (UK) (Jan, 1990)
This is one of the grottiest looking Sega games we've ever seen. Backgrounds use criminally few colours, level one just white, black and grey plus one or two bright colours on the crude ground features. Sprites are as badly designed, all childish in appearance except, strangely, flying bowls of rice! (Or is it breakfast cereal?). Scrolling is okay but tediously slow. If you've some money to spend on a Sega game use it on Alex Kidd: High-Tech World or Tennis Ace.
