505 Games has announced that Top Gun Hard Lock for X360, PS3 and PC has shipped to UK retail outlets, and the PC version is available for download at ImpulseDriven. Top Gun Hard Lock lets fans fly into the danger zone as an all-new crew of elite naval aviators taking air combat to new heights. Players engage in adrenaline-fuelled dog fights to tailgate MiGs at Mach 2 and master the game’s Hard Lock feature to perform high-G aerial combat manoeuvres in order to destroy enemy pilots.
Ian Howe, president, 505 Games North America said:
“More than 25 years after its debut, the ‘Top Gun’ brand is still going strong and we are proud to be part of that heritage with the release of Top Gun Hard Lock. Our game lets fans experience an all-new storyline as well as the same high-octane action found in the film, allowing them to immerse themselves in the ‘Top Gun’ universe like never before.”
Featuring 14 playable planes, including a selection of licensed planes such as the iconic F-14 Super Tomcat, Top Gun Hard Lock also features a single-player campaign that spans 15 exhilarating missions and an all-new modern-day storyline. Players can also compete online in an addictive multiplayer campaign that supports up to 16 players.

The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions are available for a RRP of £29.99 and the downloadable PC version is available at ImpulseDriven for £19.99. The game has been rated 12 by the BBFC.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
