Another good thing about Top Gun is you can just pick it up and start to play. Getting Migs in your sight blasting them with your cannon or even locking missiles onto them. At this level you can start enjoying the game seconds after you plug in. An excellent flight game addition to the Nintendo library of games.

ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Top Gun is visually sparse, but the enemy sprites are extremely effective - especially in the air-to-air combat. Combined with decent sound effects and the varied and entertaining action, this latest Konami release is bound to appeal to all shoot-em-up addicts.

All Game Guide
Despite these negatives, though, Top Gun is in many ways a classic. It's fairly common, and you shouldn't have any problem finding it for more than four or five bucks. If you're in the mood for some good flight simulation 8-bit style, it's definitely worth picking up.

Complétement en 3D, ce jeu est bien réalisé. Les graphismes sont bons et l'animation rapide. On s'y croirait ! Bien sûr on est loin des prouesses de la Mégadrive ou de la Nec, mais Top Gun est un des meilleurs jeux de ce type sur la Nintendo. Vous pouvez l'acheter les yeux fermés.

The Games Machine (UK)
As in many Nintendo games, the emphasis is on playability rather than graphic presentation. On this level Top Gun succeeds as it provides four limited, but very playable missions with extra features - landing, refuelling and a missile strategy - to spruce up the action.

1UP!
Parmi les nombreux jeux Konami sur NES, il fait partie des plus connus, au même titre que Contra, Castlevania et les Tortues Ninja. Lorsqu'il sortit en 1987, il essayait de tenir tête à un autre titre arrivé quasiment en même temps, After Burner, mais pas sur Master System ou Mega Drive, After Burner en arcade!

Power Play
Top Gun ist eindeutig das schwächste Konami-Spiel für Nintendo, das ich bislang gesehen habe. Ein bißchen Baller-Baller über den Wolken und ein Landeanflug per Joypad - das war‘s schon. Spielerische Abwechslung sucht man trotz der vier verschiedenen Missionen vergebens.

I remember this game and Sega's After Burner came out at practically the same in '87. A friend comes up to me saying "Get your quarters, we're going to the arcade." There, I am introduced to After Burner, and it was awesome. Maybe a week or two later that friend comes back (this was how you got your information before the Internet...) telling me that they had released After Burner on the NES. We went to rent it at the video store and, come to find out, they hadn't. It was this game he was thinking of, and this game couldn't quite compare.
