  1. At this price, though, it's hard to knock something for being fun and accessible, even when it's not exactly pushing the boundaries. And with 16-player multiplayer to seal the deal, Top Gun finally has a decent game to call its own.
  2. Top Gun is okay, but it certainly doesn't impress.
  3. The presentation is sloppy and pulls you out of the action inexplicably at times, but there is fun to be had here.
  4. Top Gun has a simple gameplay, an engine with too many issues, and a tasteless story mode.
  5. 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.
  6. I can sum up Top Gun with a single word. "Embarrassing". "Unnecessary" also works. We don't need this game.
  7. 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.
