Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko


n64gm142 - Developed by Crystal Dynamics, Inc. and Published by Crave Entertainment, Inc., "Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko" was released for the Nintendo 64 (N64) Entertainment System on September 29, 1999. This is a 1st-Person / 3rd-Person Perspective action Platformer game, and the third game in the Gecko series. The game scenario is that once again the evil and dastardly Rez has risen to power in the media dimension this time has kidnapped the sexy leather-clad Agent Xtra. So Gex once again goes undercover to rescue the agent, and must traverse through many levels that parody aspects of television shows. Comedian Dana Gould once again provides Gex's humorous voice overs. Gex defends himself with his signature tail whip attack and can perform a flying karate kick. His satire remains intact as he is always ready with an often witty and funny one-liner. There are also some aspects of this game that can only be overcome by using strategy and completing different puzzles. And Gex's new outfits often provide him with new abilities. Gecko can also climb walls and ceilings, use machines, bounce on his tail and use his tongue to eat flies for power-ups. Gex can tail whip or karate-kick his enemies, boost himself up on ledges by his tail, climb certain walls and ceilings, eat flies for power-ups, and spout one-liner wisecrack jokes. The more controllers Gecko finds, the more Television worlds he can enter. This game is much improved over the last in the series, as the frame rate, play control, and camera work are significantly better than the first Gex game for the N64. But while Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko is definitely an upgrade from the previous game, the gameplay is basically the same as the previous Gecko game, and that includes the imperfect controls (though better). The graphics are colorful and feature clean textures, but are otherwise pretty generic and average. The sound and music is greatly improved also. So the Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko game won't appeal to everyone, but the kids will love it, as well as those of us who appreciate the effort put into simple fun, parody and humor.
