Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie's Revenge

Playstation Illustrated
18 January 2007
  • Excerpt: Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie's Revenge fits the style set forth by the cult classic movie perfectly. Not only does the general look of the world fit the claymation style, but also specific areas that were found in the film appear as perfect duplicates of the the movie's set. Each of the characters resemble their film counterparts perfectly. Both the in-game and pre-rendered versions of the cast come off exactly like they did on the silver screen.

Musical action game will please movie's fans.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game continues the action from the animated movie. The game is set in a haunted world full of familiar monsters like skeletons and witches, many of whom are friendly and sweet rather than scary. Players will fight hundreds of creatures, but the battles are bloodless and cartoonish.

  • Conclusion: is definitely an above average game based on a children's movie license. It takes enough liberties with the material to craft its own story and the gameplay is strong enough to warrant taking a serious look. The biggest problems with the game lie in the stationary camera and overall lack of gameplay variety, though I have to admit that it does try to spruce things up a bit at times.

  • Excerpt: One of Disney’s more popular releases in the 90’s was Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. In Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie’s Revenge (one of the longest titles of 2005 or this generation for that matter), you play as the lead character in the movie, Jack Skellington. You’re armed with the “soul robberâ€? and the ability to transform into Santa Jack and the Pumpkin King.

  • Conclusion: I really wanted to enjoy Oogie's Revenge, I really did, but the game is just too little variety stretched over too much similarity in tasks. It's fun in bursts, but as a long haul action game, even I can't handle this much Halloween.

Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie's Revenge Review

GameSpot
13 October 2005
  • Summary: Were it not for the part where you actually have to play it, fans of the film could have had a conceivably great time with Oogie's Revenge.
  • Pros: Nails the aesthetic qualities of the original film, Excellent voice acting and musical numbers, Boss fights can be entertaining
  • Cons: Dull, repetitious combat that takes up too much of the game, Too much backtracking, and not enough mission variety, Sound editing could have used some fine-tuning--too much repetition, Graphics engine sports detailed character models, but low-res everything else, Frequently unpleasant camera angles
