This was supposed to be the new sonic. Or the best new platformer? It was supposed to be better than donkey kong for snes too.

It was literally just shovelware. First game was well past its time, sequels were shameless cash in on the 3D platformer/collectathon boom.

Didn't play 2 or 3 but 1 was just ok, didn't see anything special in it at all, just a little better than shovelware sonic mascot clones from the 4th gen

Had both mario64 and gex upon release. Replayed M64 a few weeks ago and couldn't understand how I was fascinated by this horrible game. Replayed Gex 2 and enjoyed it.

The first Gex was a solid 2D platformer with great music and style.
The other two might have been a little derivative of Mario 64 but they were still quality collect-a-thons.

Played and finished it the other other day.
It is just fine. Mediocre. The levels are basic, nothing too interesting or memorable.

It is not bad, devs did put some effort into it. But there is no real hook to keep you invested.

Supposedly there is a secret area, where you can get there if you finish all Bonus Stages and get the extra remote? But after completing a stage, it does not tell you that you missed something in that stage, you need to lookup a walkthrough. I did not bother getting the secret area, I just finished the game. And the story is kinda crap.

The manual says that you got depressed after losing your father and wanted to watch TV all the time, but then your mom broke your TV and you left the house and became homeless and you did sexual favors for old women for money (yes), but then you inherited a bunch of money from a dead uncle so you bought a giant house with a giant TV to watch all day. But in game there is no reference to that at all, you just get abducted by some random villain?

Now that's what I call shitty writing.

Sonic and Mario were simple and got you hooked with the gameplay. Gex is lacking, and I don't think they were striving for a new Mario.

Gex's secret world is nothing to write home about. It's mostly just gimmick levels with a kinda weak Jetsons style city theme.

Mario 64 at worst is still just ok. Gex 2 is a lame as fuck platformer that has all the faults of games like croc and crash but without any of the good things. The level design and shit is awful and is not a good game even though gex 3 improves way more theres no way you unironically prefer it to Mario 64

It was good until i got to the secound world toon land. I don't know why they would go so random. The cemetery part was cool. Never got past toon land. Maybe some of its levels are good.

Crystal Dynamics started out as a 3DO developer, before they jumped over to being multi-platform. Crystal Dynamics was pretty good at filling-in the gaps of the 3DO with under-represented game genres, and Gex was their attempt at bringing the success of Donkey Kong Country and Sonic over to the 3DO, basically. The 3DO doesn't really have any original 2D platformers outside of Gex. The few 2D platformers it has, are ports of like... Amiga games. From what I understand the original 3DO Gex sold like an estimated 2 million copies for the 3DO, and it was also included as a pack-in game. It apparently was one of the best selling games on that console. But was moved to being a multi-platform mascot after the 3DO company gave up on hardware.

Crystal Dynamics made a decent platformer, with some interesting play-mechanics, like Gex's ability to walk on walls in the BG.
