How ironic. I'm looking for this on PS1. I know the 3DO has the superior version, but a PS1 is all I've got. That sucks about the save feature (or lack thereof). Besides that, how's the game?
It's a really good game so far. That's why I'm so mad, because the "save feature problem" may actually steer me away from it, if I cant beat it without ever turning it off (or figuring out how to save).
The graphics are very nice, with even some 3D rotating and scaling during boss fights. The music is catchy and blends in great with the levels, however I feel that Gex's voice and quips seem out of place (I have never even hear of Dana Gould).
The gameplay is awesome, the control are very crisp and responsive.The challenge is there too, some levels can be a little frustrating, but not "pull your hair out and throw the controller" frustrating. I died alot, but its easy to get 1ups and keep trying the levels. Sticking to the walls, and climbing alongside the walls is a big part of the game and as Dave put it "adds a new dimension".
The gameplay is addictive, and the environments are refreshing. It's overall an awesome game, I would give it an 'A' if not for the major flaw of the saving system.
