The one that started it all.
24 August 2008 | by johnnymacbestSee all my reviews

When I was 13, I remember getting this game back in the mid-'90s and it was awesome and it was the first game that I bought for the Sega Saturn. It's a little like Sonic but what sets it apart was it's hand-drawn graphics with bright, crisp colors, wacky soundtrack, sense of humor, and various themed levels that parody popular culture and movies. Dana Gould is one funny guy and many of Gex/s wisecracks will leave a few chuckles here and there but he's still got personality. One of the most memorable moments was finding all of the hidden remotes to access the secret Planet X world. But on top of that the game still holds up well even in today's era of gaming and the sequels that followed it are even better thanks in part to being in 3D.
