Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko Ad Blurbs
Advertising Blurbswww.nintendo.com – Nintendo 64:
With a mouth this big, did you really think Gex would be able to stay out of trouble?
Famous for his scathing sarcasm and undying devotion to pop culture, Gex the crime-fighting Gecko is turning off the TV and gearing up for another adventure on Nintendo 64. Published by Crave Entertainment and developed for the N64 by Crystal Dynamics, Deep Cover Gecko is a twisted 3-D adventure game guaranteed to make you chuckle along the way.
Gex's mission this time around is to rescue the gorgeous Agent Xtra (played by Baywatch beauty Marliece Andrada), who has been kidnapped by Gex's arch-nemesis Rez. To complete this unlikely love connection, the gecko must go undercover to conquer 24 tongue-in-cheek levels.
Each level ruthlessly parodies a beloved aspect of our TV dinner culture, and when Gex's agile tongue is poking fun, nothing is safe. The insectivorous adventurer collects Remote Controls in each area by completing a wide variety of tasks, similar to Super Mario 64 or Banjo-Kazooie.
Gex demonstrates his exclusive tongue technique in the Mythology Network Gex is equipped with his famous tail-whipping moves and the ability to scamper up walls, but in Deep Cover Gecko he can also transform into new characters like Dracula, Sherlock Holmes, and a muscle-bound Gexcules.
Gex proves that his tongue is good for more than cheap one-liners with a jaw-jarring tongue swing which is exclusively available in the N64 version of the game.
Gex hitches a ride on Humps the camel Even though the Gex series is famous for its off-the-wall sense of humor, the jokes are built around interesting gameplay which could easily stand on its own.
Crystal Dynamics has done a solid job with the play control, greatly improving on Gex 64: Enter the Gecko. Automatic camera positioning has not been perfected, but the problems are infrequent and not terribly distracting.
Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko is an entertaining adventure game with challenging objectives and a large dose of comic relief to boot. The sarcastic lizard has already scurried onto store shelves, just in time for the fall television line-up to inspire the next sequel.

Hamming it up like no other lizard can, Gex returns to the silver screen where he's most at home in this his third action-packed adventure on PlayStation. The Media Dimension is once more the place where disguise, intrigue and a keen sense of spoof are just some of the skills needed to get through the working day and Gex will need them all in large doses on this mission.
Gex's arch enemy Rez has kidnapped Agent Xtra, the beautiful Baywatch babe Marliece Andrada lookalike. With Xtra now held captive in the Media Dimension, the place where sarcasm is appreciated (er, like really a lot), Gex's mission (which he's chosen to accept) is to:
1. do as many wisecracks as possible
2. rescue the girl
And as if that wasn't enough, Gex (voiced by Red Dwarf's Danny John-Jules) is hell-bent on doing it in style. . . or rather styles.
Gex, master of disguise and international lizard of mystery uses his new-found skills including scuba diving, gliding and snowboarding to battle the evils of Rez over a huge variety of 3D levels. The green gecko performs out of his skin as Private Gex, Cowboy Clint Gexwood, Long John Gex, Sherlock Gex and a host of other spurious persona. There is also all-new vehicle-based gameplay in which Gex controls army tanks, crocodiles, kangaroos, camels and other strange forms of transport.
Gex: Deep Cover Gecko - it's not serious but don't call it Shirley.
