That Top Gun game for the PSN didn't turn out so well.
But that doesn't mean we can't have a great game based on the iconic movie, right? 505 Games has announced Top Gun: Hard Luck ; the project features a new storyline and a new wave of elite naval aviators from the Top Gun academy, and it'll come to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC next spring. Fighters will include the MiGs and F-14 Tomcat and the special Hard Lock mode ought to be a crowd-pleaser: "players perform air combat maneuvers that deliver an explosively satisfying visual payoff that brings them right into the action." This could be the game that the classic film deserves, and we're hoping the developers utilize the capabilities of consoles to make it shine.
Games based on movies aren't always the greatest but they've been getting better this generation. So there's always hope.
