Worst Flight Simulator Yet! Buy AceCombat04 Instead of This!
28 January 2003
Summary: Top Gun was awesome movie but the game isn't. I can't even get past the Tutorual missions! My uncle can't either. This has no pros and all cons. Get AceCombat04 for some real Flight Sim! This is horrible. However, if you JUST HAVE TO HAVE a Top Gun game buy a Gameboy Color and buy TopGun: Firestorm. This game is awesome! The controls are just like a jet fightr. What is so stupid about the Combat Zone game is 2 hits from a tank and BOOM! you explode.
Summary: When I got my ps2 for Christmas I askd for Acecombat4 and topgun. I played Ace first and it i by far the best in the series. I decded to pay topun for a bit. Topgun ... compared to Acecombat4. The graphics for togun are good, but the game laks a storyline. The controls for the game ar way to slow to do anything. If you are going to get flying sim get ACECOMBAT$ SHATERED KYES!
Summary: Well first the good, since this wont take long. The graphics are decent, I' not too picky but I found the graphics adequate to that I expected. Now the bad. first of all, I dont know why they have the top gun liscense because other than the logo on the box and a quote "Do you feel the need?" are the only things I foind that have to do with the movie itself. Speaking of need for speed.... you wont have an answer to that craving in this game.
Summary: This game is no where near as good as Ace Combat 4. I might have kept the game if not for one glaring flaw. It will not remember your choice of control setup. There are 4 to choose from. It will remember the setup on the memory card but once you change to a different mission it reverts to the default setup. This should never have gotten by the beta tester. Who ever they are, fire them. Bombing could have been handled better.
If you like to waste money, don't bother reading this.

Summary: Okay, I’ve had Top Gun: Combat Zones for over a week now and while I wanted to enjoy it (...) I feel pretty comfortable telling you all that it, in fact, BLOWS. Usually, I’m willing to stick it out through long stretches of boredom, sluggish and unrealistic physics models, awkward to nearly unplayable controls, monotonous environments and unrealistic and sparse enemies long enough to get to the point where a game begins to shine, but Top Gun has two problems.
Summary: Coming from an ex pilot, this game gives a high performance jet the manuverability of a Piper Cherokee. I played this game for about 3 minutes, then I was off to EB to trade it in. It might have been a decent game for the Nintendo entertainment system (yes the 8 bit fossil). Save your dough, get a game that is worth it, 'cause this is possibly the worst I've seen yet.
Summary: A little bias here, as I'm a former pilot. The training missions are guaranteed to leave you droopy-eyed and frustrated. Controls and flight parameters aren't very realistic, especially for Tomcat and Harrier. I was also underwhelmed by the overall graphics; the canyon runs can't hold a candle to canyon runs in Star Wars: Starfighter As an example, terrain features "pop-up" too obviously, making it hard to keep flight situational awareness and really get into the...
