Live-action video creates the experience of a lifetime as you battle your way through an epic adventure set against a backdrop of burgeoning global crisis. Experience the ultimate that modern dogfighting has to offer as you lead your wingmen into fierce aerial combat.

Live actors, including the return of James Tolkan in the role of "Hondo", Maverick's tough, cigar-chompin' Commanding Officer.

Your backseater Merlin flies with you on every mission calling the shots and helping you be the best of the best.

Over 40 missions to fly with increasing levels of difficulty. Or choose Instant Action and prepare for immediate combat.

Choose your friend as your wingman or your opponent with head-to-head and network play.

Reviews:

CD-ROM Today, June 1996

"The flight models are simple, putting them on a par with U.S.. Navy Fighters and ATF, but above the mild Silent Thunder: A-10 Tank Killer II. More complex flight models, such as the one in Spectrum Holobyte's Falcon 3.0, come with huge manuals about how to operate and control the plane, and they're not as forgiving as Top Gun's simplified flight model. While the complex sims take the physics of flight into consideration and perform calculations that lead to realistic simulation, Top Gun doesn't factor in the subtleties. As a result, you don't face the same degree of challenge when using such basic skills as keeping the bird in the air. This gives you the ability to perform some wacky turns without having to pay for any miscalculation."

"Top Gun's drawbacks rest in its technical execution. I found stuttering frames caused by wingman comments, and terrain graphics lacking definition. Still, Top Gun is an entertaining and easy to operate flying game for people who want the action but not the fuss of complex flight sims."
