Description official description

Just like in the first game, you fly an F-14 Tomcat in combat against the enemy equipped with Soviet equipment, although there is no direct reference to the Soviet Union anywhere. The only plot of this game is to destroy everything you see, excluding the aircraft carrier to which you must land at the end of each level.

In addition to the basic game mode with anti-ship, ground attack and space battle levels, similar to the first game, the second mission adds two extra modes. In the first extra mode you can fight against top enemy aces flying a MiG-25 Foxbat, one at a time. The second extra mode is two-player game with split screen, in which you can fight against your friend, both flying Tomcats.

You will have to fight against interesting level bosses such as a giant Tu-160 Blackjack bomber, a Mi-24 Hind attack chopper and an armed space shuttle.

Another interesting detail about the game is that between fighting the aircraft and surface opponents you have to dodge between giant trees (yes, you read correctly!!), lightnings and laser attacks.

the true test of a top gun hero!!!

The Good
its the best game around!! i own both this and the original, and "top gun-the second mission" offers a true test of skill. the levels are well designed, the graphics great, and the thrill of piloting an f-14 tomcat into a war zone is pure class. but be warned- you need to be a true master to pass the trees in level 2!! the 2 player game is way ahead of its time, and you and a buddy will be hurling missiles at each other for weeks!! but for masters, the 1 player vs game is there to test the true "top guns" out there. 7 pilots- one-on-one. will you defeat round 7?

The Bad
the difficult submarine and tree sections. and the boss of mission 1, is difficult to defeat. one hit and your gone. the same goes for the 1 player vs game. if you screw up on a round, it back to the start, to try again!!!

The Bottom Line
a true flight game for the greatest game of all time!! if you like games, then get this and test your metal- in top gun:the second mission!!!
