Plot

GEX 3: Deep Cover Gecko is the third part of the adventures of a friendly gecko named Gex, who travels through virtual worlds and facing the sinister Rez. The title was developed by Crystal Dynamics. Unlike the previous parts of the series, which also appeared on the PC, the third game was released only on PS One and Nintendo 64 consoles (and it had a 2D version on Game Boy Color).

In GEX 3: Deep Cover Gecko, Gex moves back to the world of movies and television programmes. There, Gex will have the final battle against Rez. However, this task will be much more delicate. Agent Xtra, known from the second part of the game - the head of a special branch of TV Terrorist Defense Unit - was the madman's victim. That is why, for the first time in the history of the series, our protagonist will also be accompanied by friends: a cousin named Cuz, a red dinosaur Rex and a butler called Alfred the Turtle. We can play as them in the bonus stages.

Mechanics

In terms of mechanics, GEX 3: Deep Cover Gecko doesn't differ significantly from the solutions known from its predecessor, although the gameplay itself has changed slightly. While playing, we no longer collect everything we find on our way. Instead, we concentrate exclusively on insects. Every 100 insects give us a remote controller, necessary for further progress. The range of the hero's skills has also been expanded. Gex can now use various means of transport, such as a tank, donkey or snowboard. In some stages, he will also have to spit fire or ice, swim and glide.

Technical aspects

In terms of graphics, GEX 3: Deep Cover Gecko looks much better than the previous version of the series. The graphics are maintained in a similar style but are characterized by a significantly higher resolution. Apart from that, there are quite a lot of FMV cut-scenes. One of the attractions is also the appearance of the Playboy model Marlie Andrady, who played the role of Agent Xtra.
