    Anyone looking for a hardcore flight sim should look elsewhere (preferably at a PC). This here's arcade action all the way, but it does that one thing extremely well.
  2. A credible and solid outing, Top Gun is top fun – if you have the patience to stick with it.

    There’s often little tension, making the game feel less like flying in combat and more like running errands.
  4. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine

    It's the closest thing to an honest-to-God flight sim a PlayStation has seen. [Nov 2001, p.160]
  5. Mediocrity and disappointment, the images that conjure up when thinking about Top Gun are intense action, pumping soundtrack, slick presentation and fun, unfortunately most of these can’t be found in the game.
  6. Digital Integration has coded a lethargic, boring and snooze-inducing series of missions (about 30 of them) that are as unoriginal as they are predictably competent.
  7. The story isn't there, the gameplay is very boring, the graphics aren't good and the control will leave you craving for the blood of a programmer.

    I thought the control was challenging not bad. The bad part is mission 4 in the academy. How do I beat this?

    Good graphics, but the controls are hard and frustrating, also they don't give a lot of time, not nearly as good as ace combat.

    I had it and gave it away. I think it is the worst money spent ever. The only good are the graphics. All the rest is crap.
