Gex 64: Enter the Gecko

Get the game at!

Reviewed by Nate Gex 64 is the late conterpart to Gex 2: Enter the Gecko for the Playstation, and they are both very similar, except that the N64's graphics shutters the Playstation, and the N64 also boasts a few levels that were not in the Playstation version. Gex 64 is about the return of Gex, who had gone into retirement until Rez (a big metallic robot) decides that he would get a kick out of taking over all the TV stations. It's Gex to the rescue! You will travel to many levels of several different types, such as a prehistoric level, a haunted house, a cartoon level, and a Star Wars type level.

Graphics 9 out of 10

The graphics are nicely done, bright and colorful, but not distasteful, although no match for Banjo-Kazooie's polygons. Gex moves smoothly around, as does everything else. The fogging is almost as bad as in Turok, though. Sometimes it is appropriate, but sometimes it gets annoying. Overall, though, they were very satisfying.

Music and Sound 7 out of 10

The music is lively and upbeat, and goes well with the stages. The sound effects are average, and the voices sound professional. You will turn it down before long, because Gex's comments are going to drive you insane. Sound is not one of Gex's outstanding qualities.

Game Challenge 6 out of 10

This game has no challenge, at least not to me. I was halfway through the game in two days. Some of the puzzles are hard to find, but most are pretty straightforward. The bosses don't offer a huge challenge, but they are fun to crush.

Game Play-Fun 8 out of 10

I had fun with this game. Even though if might get boring when you're stuck, which happens occasionally, but that doesn't usually last very long. The most fun is the secret levels, and hunting for them in the main worlds. That will take you a while, heh heh . . .


This game can be very frustrating at some points, especially when the camera gets stuck behind the character and it swings around wildly. Most of the puzzles are not very frustrating, but sometimes the jumps and stiff like that is hard to time, and you may find yourself falling a lot. Otherwise, it is one of the less frustrating games I've played.

Replayability 8 out of 10

There is a lot to do, even after all the main tasks are over. There are secret controls in each level hidden well, which let you in the bonus stages, which are a blast. There's a fair amount to do.

Game Value 7 out of 10

Most of the game can be finished when you rent it, so there's no real reason to buy it, unless you are a big Gex fan. I know I wouldn't.

Overall 8 out of 10
