  • Summary: Based on the animated movie, Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie's Revenge continues the story of Jack Skellington, Oogie Boogie, and other familiar favorites. In the game, you'll assume the role of Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, who must help reclaim the town from the mischievous Oogie Boogie and his henchmen. Jack has a variety of attack options, including his trusty "rubber soul" attack, and real-time costume changes. Expand

  1. This adventure looks great, its landscape dominated by crooked buildings and brooding grey skies; navigating Jack is simple and the characters are all well realised. A perfect children's game.
  2. One of the most alluring hub-based adventures I've ever had the pleasure of playing. [Oct 2005, p.62]
  3. Although the combat lacks fluidity, and the gameplay needs help in the innovation category, Oogie's Revenge stays truthful to the film from which it was spawned, and is sure to please fans.
  4. The game features fun and innovative boss fights and your Soul Robber weapon is nice too. Those elements are solid, but Capcom didn't perfect key aspects of the game including the terrible camera angles and repetitive fighting that causes the game to be irritating.
  5. It was fun at first, but got grindingly boring as I kept playing.
  6. 60
    This flawed action-adventure title kicks the long, spindly legs right out from under the Nightmare franchise and threatens to disappoint young and old gamers alike.
  7. As a fan of the movie, I really love the characters, but the uninspired and repetitive gameplay really hurts it in the long run.

    I must say that I was pleasantly surprised with this one! I started playing it and couldn't put it down. I was never a fan of A Nightmare Before Christmas but now I am!! What a cute little game! Expand
