GREAT BALLS OF FIRE! Top Gun is Coming to PSN

James Brooksby's Avatar Posted by Studio Head, doublesix

I gotta do something here, I still can’t believe it. I gotta give you your dream shot! I’m gonna send you up against the best. You two characters are going to Top Gun.

That’s right… Maverick, Goose, Iceman and Viper will take to the sky again in Top Gun, exclusively for PlayStation Network this summer. doublesix is the developer, and Paramount Digital Entertainment will publish the game.


With the help of Jack Epps, Jr. the screenwriter from the “Top Gun” film, we built a game that allows players to relive and go beyond the original film. The film itself uses only a few environments and shows very little actual air combat. So, with Jack’s help, we created fresh action at flight school and added more combat against the Soviets over the Indian Ocean.

Top Gun is a free-flying air combat shooter where, as Maverick, players will blast enemies out of the sky in dogfight battles, obliterate ground- and air-based targets and show off their extreme flying prowess. Campaign mode features three parts: Prologue, where you will be introduced to your Soviet enemy, Flight School, where you will compete against Iceman, Merlin, etc. for Top Gun honors, and active combat over the Indian Ocean. There will also be a single-player Horde Mode and five online multiplayer modes: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Top Gun (choose your wingman and compete against enemy pairs), Bombing Run (defend and attack mobile bases) and Capture the Flag.

Yes, you can request a flyby.

Yes, the day you can grow a moustache like Goose is the day you are officially a man.

Yes, the development team may have reenacted the volleyball scene many times for creative inspiration. No, you cannot join us.

Any questions?

Shouldn’t the pilot have been called “Gander” not “Goose”? Gander is a male goose, afterall.

“we would like to inform you that your sons are dead because they were stupid…” one word ‘SOLD’

one question… if Iceman doesnt take the shot and bugs out, leaving me in his jetwash, will I go into a flat spin in the game?

I’m just asking because *holds back the tears* I dont know if I could go through losing Goose again!

This is too little too late. A game based on a 24 year old movie which is older than a great number of players is a very limited market. People have moved on. and frankly I nor many thousands of other former fans simply cannot trust sony not to completely botch this with horrendous bugs and very bad decision making. It smacks of extreme desparation over a slew of bad games and worse firmwware downgrades that have left a very bad taste in our mouths. This bit of candy won’t wash that all away.

“It’s actually a really cool combo of the two. It’s not “on rails”, either, but an open environment.”

You’ve just made a buyer out of me :P
