Top Gun Announced

Paramount Digital Entertainment announces Top Gun, an upcoming arcade aerial combat game based on the '80s Tom Cruise movie. The game will offer players the chance to ride into the danger zone on PC, Mac, and PlayStation Network. For added authenticity, development is involving Jack Epps, Jr., who wrote the screenplay for the movie. There's no word if the game will include beefcake volleyball mini-games, but they do offer a little on what it will include: "In Top Gun, players will enroll in the Top Gun Academy as Maverick with their Radio Information Officer Goose to go up against the best for Top Gun honors. Following graduation, players will fly into the danger zone with fellow US Navy pilots over the Indian Ocean, where they will shoot down enemy fighter jets, defend and attack bases and engage in large-scale dogfight battles. Top Gun also features five multiplayer modes, allowing up to sixteen players to go up against the best and battle it out online. Currently in development by doublesix, Top Gun will be available this summer."

I guess there is no chance this could actually be made into a fun arcade sim?

With that said, does anyone remember if Lock On lets you start and land on carriers with anything other than a Sukhoyev?

"They are the gay, fighting fucking force."

LOL

It's too bad there wasn't an Ambiguously Gay Duo cameo (where they bust through the wall with the car).

I remember the Top Gun game for the PS1. It had a cover of "Highway to the Danger Zone" sung by the chick who does the english dub for Major Kusanagi in Ghost in the Shell; made the song a lot less flaming. The plotline, such as it was, dispensed with Goose, gave you Merlin played by someone less dorky-looking than Tim Robbins from the get-go, kept James Tolkan as the CAG, and was all-around more entertaining and less gay than the movie. It'll probably be better compared to the new one.

This is also better than the actual movie.

Aww not an arcade game! Boo! Still, it'll be good to ride with Mav, Goose, Iceman, Slider, Wolfman, Hollywood, Jester, Cougar, Sundown, Merlin, Hollywood, and the rest of the gang once more. I hope there's a bar where we can romance women by singing You've lost that loving feeling.

I live in the danger zone 24/7 baby!

All jokes aside. If it plays anything like the Top Gun game they made for iPhone (Which was just a glorified Afterburner clone with the Top Gun name on it) it could be fun for 10 bucks or so.

That being said though I also love Afterburner Climax and Afterburner Black Falcon so...

All I remember about Top Gun (NES) was landing sucked!!!! Actually in retrospect the controls were as bad as the flight controls in GTA: San Andreas. Did the people behind Top Gun NES work on San Andreas?!

Revvin' up your engine
Listen to her howlin' roar
Metal under tension
Beggin' you to touch and go

Highway to the Danger Zone
Ride into the Danger Zone

Headin' into twilight
Spreadin' out her wings tonight
She got you jumpin' off the track
And shovin' into overdrive

Highway to the Danger Zone
I'll take you
Right into the Danger Zone

You'll never say hello to you
Until you get it on the red line overload
You'll never know what you can do
Until you get it up as high as you can go

Out along the edges
Always where I burn to be
The further on the edge
The hotter the intensity

Highway to the Danger Zone
Gonna take you
Right into the Danger Zone

Highway to the Danger Zone
