As can be expected from a game with this premise, it contains numerous parodies on movies and series like Friday the 13th, Star Wars, Flinstones, James Bond, Mission Impossible and No Weddings and a Funeral.
Voice actor change
In the North American releases Gex is voiced by HBO comedian Dana Gould, while the European releases feature the voice of British comedian Leslie Phillips.
In Japan the game was released on the Playstation by Bandai as Spin Tail. This release renamed Gex to Reno and changed the setting unrelated to the first game. Unlike the first game, this got a full Japanese voiceover by anime voice actor Mitsuo Senda.
