  1. While it captures the sweet essence of the film from so long ago, it fails to motivate with its stale gameplay.

    Capcom have done a truly brilliant job with Oogie's Revenge. They have truly captured the whimsically dark and quirky look of the film,Capcom have done a truly brilliant job with Oogie's Revenge. They have truly captured the whimsically dark and quirky look of the film, as well as nailing the ghoulish character's bittersweet innoence absoluetly spot on. The music and voice talent truly feel like a sequel to the movie, and Capcom have truly captured Burton's formula in this one.

    I took the ten away because of the game being very close to Devil May Cry's combat system, and that the storyline was a tad predictable considering where the film leaft off. also, because the game can get mildly cobfusing at points too.

    Overall, a near-on perfect movie tie-in video game replica of Burton's hit movie.
