All in all, Cotton is a charming and lovable shooter, and one of the best available for the PC Engine system.
Mega Fun
Hudson, Hudson, was ist bloß mit dir los? Mit Cotton hast Du Dir wahrlich keinen Gefallen getan. Unterdurchschnittliche Grafik und ein dünnes Spielprinzip locken halt keinen mehr hinter dem Ofen vor. Da retten die wenigen Extras und der recht ordentliche Soundtrack auch nichts mehr. Auch technisch kommt Cotton manchmal ins Schleudern, was ich aber noch verzeihe (trotz CD bleibt die Engine immer noch, was sie ist: Ein 8 Bit-System). Cotton ist zwar schon unter Hudson Soft-Standard; wäre es von einer anderen Firma, dann könnte ich fast schon von einem Hit sprechen, aber so bin ich schon etwas enttäuscht. Vielleicht arbeiten ja die fähigsten Programmierer von Hudson Soft schon an Spielen für die neue 32 Bit-Engine (hoffen wir's). Wer ein Hudson Soft- und Ballerspielfan ist, der sollte trotzdem probespielen.
The Video Game Critic
Anything goes in a game like this; you never know what's going to show up next. I appreciate the imagination but sometimes it's hard to tell what's harmful! Sure you can brush up against that jagged landscape but touching a cloud is fatal. Each stage ends with an obligatory boss encounter and some transform into several forms so never let your guard down. I'm recommended using turbo to engage rapid-fire until you reach a boss, at which time you'll want to use your charge attacks. Cotton is a challenging game. Enemies drop crystals but they are hard to gather because when you shoot them they fire into the air like rockets. Collecting them once they settle on the ground is risky because there's often something lurking in the scenery. The upbeat musical score is a lot fun but the explosion effects have some static. The game offers three continues and saves high scores. Cotton is a thoroughly ridiculous shooter that's occasionally irritating but always entertaining.

Der mäßige Qualitätsstandard ist für Hudson so ungewohnt, daß Cotton oft einen ziemlich halbfertigen Eindruck hinterläßt. Durch die eingebaute Bremse und die massiv auftretenden Gegnersprites werden einige Stellen unfair, so daß die insgesamt fünf Leben und drei Continues vor allem bei Anfängern schnell verheizt sind. Schade um die nette Idee!

Uno shooter discreto dalle ottime musiche, penalizzato però da una difficoltà eccessiva.
