Top Gun is a free-flying air combat shooter based on the film. In Top Gun, players 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 fly into the danger zone with fellow US Navy pilots over the Indian Ocean, where they shoot down enemy fighter jets, defend and attack bases and engage in large-scale dogfight battles.
Top Gun features 7 gameplay modes, 2 single and 5 multiplayer. In Campaign Mode, players first learn the ropes at the academy and progress to active duty, teaming up with seasoned flyers to take down enemy jets over the Indian Ocean. In Horde Mode, players show off their flying prowess as they defeat endless waves of increasingly challenging enemies. In online multiplayer, players enlist in the Navy or join their comrades to go head-to-head with up to 15 other opponents in 5 different modes: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Top Gun, Bombing Run and Capture the Flag.
