  1. Top Gun isn't the worst flight combat game out there, but there are also far better ones. It's sad that such a great film franchise has been giving so little respect, as Top Gun the film has all the ingredients for making a fabulous game.

    Top Gun is short, not particularly attractive, has awful voice acting, and costs $15. If you're absolutely desperate for a flight combat game, Top Gun might seem attractive, but there are better F-14 starring titles to choose from on PSN.

    With a little more time and attention, Top Gun could have been a decent flight simulator. If you're into flying games, buy one that takes itself more serious.
  4. The game didn't even make me want to quote Top Gun once in this review. It's just not good, even if you feel the need… the need for speed.
  5. This downloadable reincarnation could've introduced Maverick to a new generation of flight combat fans who haven't seen the film. With lackluster campaign missions, empty-looking levels and awkward dialogue between every other character but your own, this is almost guaranteed to not happen.
  6. I can sum up Top Gun with a single word. "Embarrassing". "Unnecessary" also works. We don't need this game.
  7. This is an overpriced, underwhelming, uninspired, and unceremoniously average flight combat game that does nothing special with its license or its gameplay.
  8. There have been worst movie tie-ins, but this fails to channel either the spirit of the film or the excitement of a real combat flight simulator.
  9. In the end, the very existence of Top Gun is a confusing one, as there was hardly any demand for a modern videogame based on the aged franchise. Strip away the camp value of the movie, and there is nothing left but unimpressive dog fights that have been polished years ago by other jet-based games like the Ace Combat series.
  10. Top Gun's nostalgia factor is writing cheques/checks this game can't cash, leaving it flat-spinning into oblivion. This game has lost that lovin' feeling and now it's gone, gone, gone, whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa.
  11. 25
    For those looking to relive some of the fun of the movie, avoid this mediocre flight combat game; you'd be a thousand times better off sitting around with your co-workers and seeing who can recite the most lines, or figuring out who can chomp their front teeth the loudest.
