  • Summary: Top Gun: Hard Lock is aerial dog-fighting at jet speeds and tailgating MiGs at Mach 2, while offering a unique "Hard lock" mode where players perform air combat maneuvers that deliver an explosively satisfying visual payoff that brings them right into the action. Featuring theTop Gun: Hard Lock is aerial dog-fighting at jet speeds and tailgating MiGs at Mach 2, while offering a unique "Hard lock" mode where players perform air combat maneuvers that deliver an explosively satisfying visual payoff that brings them right into the action. Featuring the legendary F-14 Tomcat fighter jet and a number of additional licensed planes and weapons, and more than enough enemy MIGs to turn into smoldering rubble, the game is carefully mixed with just enough nostalgic references to remain true to its action movie roots.

    A central QTE mechanic [is] old by the second mission. [Issue#214, p.78]

    It has a lengthy runtime for the asking price, but it's basically a trap laced with nostalgia, and is only fun in very, very short bursts. To paraphrase Maverick's commander, we think many of you would rather fly a cargo plane full of rubber dogshit out of Hong Kong than finish this. [May 2012, p74]

    I think this game is AWESOME! It feels like Top Gun, and best level is the one where you dogfight with Maverick, and epic soundtrack! I don'tI think this game is AWESOME! It feels like Top Gun, and best level is the one where you dogfight with Maverick, and epic soundtrack! I don't understand why critics hate it. Yes, it's not as advanced as other games, or as realistic, but COME ON! This is a game taking place after an 80s cheesefest Tom Cruise film (Still the best movie ever!!!!!) Also it is just really, really fun! Expand

    This is a totally fun game. I can absolutely see the perspectives of all those that have marked this game down but you'd be surprised how coolThis is a totally fun game. I can absolutely see the perspectives of all those that have marked this game down but you'd be surprised how cool this game is if only you drop the attitude of expecting a Game Of The Year type finish. Yes it's cheesy and unaspiring but what is does, it does really well. What other flying game do I have that is so easily approached and yet so cool? Um... none.

    -Worth it
    -Fun
    -Suprisingly cool
    -Surprising longevity

    Got that? Alright kiddos, I'm out.

I ask game companies to stop mocking Jesus. Expand

    This is about as bad as the Jane's Advanced Strike Fighters for PS3. Controls are awful. The voice acting is horrid. Really bad game.

    One of the worst flight simulators I have ever come across, and the only thing the download demo did was actually waste my braodbandOne of the worst flight simulators I have ever come across, and the only thing the download demo did was actually waste my braodband bandwidth. You cannot have internal view, you are forced to external behind the plane view, and half the controls are just buttons being used for the sake of it, its not even particularly good gameplay... and I think the number of missiles must be infinite, whilst the guns verheat every few seconds. If you try to decellerate it viffs automatically. ESS-HAJE-EYE-TEE with a capital ESS Expand
