CD-Denjin is an excellent and fun title. Interestingly, the first episode was somewhat technically better and featured an incredibly fast and smooth parallax scrolling. This version compensates for this unfortunate loss by pumping more detail and variation into the levels than before - and the overall quality is still flawless.
GamePro (US)
The game is every bit as nutty as the title. It features CD-quality sound and a high degree of action, but it's a bit too easy for most gamers.

Endlich hat Hudson Soft ein Einsehen und zeigt, daß sie die gute alte Engine doch noch mit guter Software beliefern. Die witzige Grafik, der abwechslungsreiche Levelaufbau und der umwerfende Sound heben CD Denjin von der Masse der durchschnittlichen Engine-Spiele, mit denen wir in letzter Zeit eingedeckt wurden, deutlich ab. Schade finde ich nur, daß der gute Bonk nun schon zum fünften Mal herhalten muß, um ein gutes Spiel zu präsentieren; man hätte sich bei Hudson Soft und bei Red mal etwas Neues ausdenken können. Wer aber eine Duo sein eigen nennt, sollte auf jeden Fall zuschlagen, denn hier wird er wieder mal gut unterhalten und ins Engine-Fieber kommen. Wer weiß, wann das nächste Highlight ansteht. Möglicherweise erst, wenn Dracula X (Castlevania) oder ein neues Prügelspiel von Konami erscheint, und das kann dauern. Also zugegriffen.

Zonk is cool, but Air Zonk is just too darn easy for a CD shooter. A little more time should have been spent developing the game - make the stages longer, tweak the difficulty level...anything to make it more memorable.

With the reputation the Duo has for great shooters, Super Air Zonk has come across as a great disappointment.
