Review

Summary – Not a Review

You know how when companies make a movie-based video game, they take some liberties with the storyline to bend it to their needs? Well, this little game completely re-writes the movie by removing one of the central characters and shuffling around some of the pilots, and then dropping the You take on the role of Maverick, ace pilot, hot shot good guy, and the next big thing to hit Miramar. Once you’ve passed the pilot tests, you’re on to many missions of dog-fighting and missile dodging. The game supports cockpit and 3rd person views, as well as a weird hybrid of simulation and arcade style controls.

Trivia

  • James Tolkan, the tough talking Commander Hondo from the movie, returns as the main man who chews you out.
  • Julie Carmen stars as a TV news reporter.
  • The jet pilots “Merlin,” “Cougar,” and “Stinger” return in the game, though portrayed by different actors. Oddly, Cougar is not mentioned anywhere in the manual credits.
  • The majority of the game’s storyline is a weird slightly re-written version of the film’s, in which Cougar loses his cool and Hondo sends you (Maverick) to Miramar. From there it expands into its own arc. Note that “Goose” has been completely removed from the picture.
  • Several minutes of the movie’s opening credit footage is mixed in with the new video game footage, as well as several film dog fight scenes being used later on.
  • There is a god awful redone version of Kenny Loggin’s “Danger Zone” performed during the opening…so bad it hurts.
  • One of the people thanked in the manual is only referred to as “Mega Dude.”
