The great action and deep exploration offered in Gex make it a must for gamers who need to jump around. Gex eats Bug for lunch on the Saturn.
Sorti de nul part tel un ovni, Gex est un excellent titre disposant d'un univers attachant et d'un personnage qui est bien loin du cliché traditionnel du héros. De plus, l'humour omniprésent fait passer de très bons moments. Après une telle expérience, vous ne porterez plus le même regard sur votre télévision.

Gex sure has been making his rounds lately hasn't he? His latest version is on the Playstation and now everybody's favorite gecko will soon be released for the Saturn. There are a few slight variations between both conversions ported over from the 3DO, but nothing noticeable enough to mention. An all-around good game with smooth control, large, challenging levels and enough humor to put a smile on any gamer's face. Gex is a must buy.
Juego mítico para unos, juego entretenido para otros, y juego corriente y simple para muchos. Seguramente el juego en sí mismo no sea magistral, pero sí lo es el personaje y por eso merece este análisis.

Einen Classic-Orden für die innovativste Spielidee im Jump ‘n ‘Run-Bereich gewinnt auch die Saturn-Variante mit Sicherheit nicht. Wie es zu erwarten war, hat sich gegenüber der Playstation- und 3DO-Version überhaupt nichts geändert. Trotzdem macht es Spaß, mit dem obercoolen Echsenstar „Gex“ durch knallbunte Plattformwelten zu wandern: Alle Level sind vertrackt aufgebaut, die Extras taktisch günstig postiert. Tummeln sich in den ersten Abschnitten noch wenige Gegner auf dem Bildschirm, haben Joypad-Akrobaten in späteren Missionen alle Hände voll zu tun, der Situation Herr zu werden. Gex ist ein solides, technisch gutes Jump‘n ‘Run - ein Spiel, das seinen ganz eigenen Unterhaltungswert hat. Ihr solltet es zumindest einmal anspielen.

Gone now are many a fallen former front man, stretching back into the dim mists of antiquity. In the mascot cemetery, amid the Bubsy's and the Aero's and the Jersey Devil's you'll find a modest marker bearing the name "Gex". Shed a tear, say a prayer, and keep moving.

The gimmicks, the flash, the buzz of a ton of hype and that voice of his, have kept Gex in the limelight a lot longer than I thought he would be. Perhaps I'm missing something. All I know is that almost immediately after picking up a controller to play Gex, I find myself drifting off. Sure the rendered graphics are nice; Gex's special power-ups look cool; and the circumstances that the gecko good guy can get himself into are adequately goofy (okay, I'll admit I like Cartoon World) but I still find the game flat and uninspired. I've always wanted to like the game. I've certainly liked a lot of Crystal Dynamics' stuff in the past. But, Gex just leaves me more numb than normal.
