Top Gun Combat Zones [GameCube] For the GameCube
With 36 different missions, including academy tutorial, Top Gun lets you experience every situation jet-fighter pilots can put themselves through, including high altitude dogfights, low-flying blitz attacks, and civil rescues. You will have to fight against dozens of different airborne and ground-based enemy vehicles to prove yourself worthy of your pilot rank. There are 36 different missions set over three distinct periods of time. You will master the Navy's top five planes and try to unlock the three bonus planes. Locations include Southeast Asia, Gulf States, the Arctic Circle, and Miramar Base, each with numerous landscapes, cities, sea, oil rigs, and arctic and desert zones. There are very detailed graphics, especially in low-level flying combat.

I loved the control setup for this game, though. That is, I loved the Expert controls. Expert controls allow you to control the airplanes with realistic three-axis movement (pitch, roll, and yaw). One big flaw, though, was throttle controls. The throttle controls really stunk.
While the control setup was near-perfect, the way the aircraft handled was very unrealistic. I mean, paint dries faster than the time it takes for you to roll completely around one time. Another complaint I have is that you can't really dive inless you roll on your back and pull up. Nothing like real aircraft.
Sound effects were okay, although the explosions sound muted. My favorite sound in this game was your 20mm cannon.Read more ›
I've crashed several times because when messages come in, control of the aircraft is stopped and returned at the end of the message. This is OK most of the time but for others it means a crash. A message window in a corner would be much better.
The heads up display differs depending on the display option selected (plane in the picture or not). There is no heads up display in quickstart free flight.
Afterburner or lower thrust means near-instant speed changes.

This game is pretty good. It is very realistic but it is really hard. This game doesn't have multiplayer either which dissapoints me.Published on Nov. 24 2002 by Kevin

This game looks cool. I watched the movie and it was superb, so I'm expecting the best - however, sometimes the games aren't what they were supposed to be, so I'm being cautious. Read morePublished on Nov. 6 2002
