So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko is the third installment in the juggernaut Gex franchise. Players assume the role of Gex, a wise-cracking critter with 'tude to spare, as he explores and collects trinkets in dozens of wacky 3D worlds.

Hmmm...
To do:

Debug Mode

While the game is paused, hold R2 (L2 for the European version) and press Up, Circle, Right, Up, Left, Right, Down, and a sound effect should play. Un-pause the game and press Select to display a list of options including level select, sound debug, collectibles, and other options.

If a FMV vault code is also used, the game cannot be saved since the pause feature will be disabled.

Unused Debug Mode

Present at offset 00xxAAC in AKUJI.EXE is another debug mode, likely left over from the previous game.

Regional Differences

While the American version featured Dana Gould in the title role, as in previous titles, the European dub replaced him with Danny John-Jules (best known as the Cat from Red Dwarf).

Hmmm...
To do:
The credits listing on Mobygames also mentions German and French voice dubs. Check to see if these audio tracks are different enough from the UK track, joke-wise, to be worth mentioning
