Oogie’s Revenge is a hack-slash adventure game, where you get to control Jack Skellington, and Oogie Boogie kidnaped five of the holiday leaders with the intention of becoming the Seven Holidays King. Sally is able to send a magical airplane to warn Jack, and he now goes on a journey to save Sally, and defeat Oogie.

The Nightmare

Jack once again starts to think Halloween is getting boring, so he goes to Dr. Finklestein and asks him to improve the next Halloween, making it even scarier. The Dr. then gives Jack a whip called Soul Robber, and so Jack goes out on a journey to find ways to improve Halloween. But this time, he remembers to not venture outside his world. However, Lock, Shock, and Barrel, due to boredom, decide to revive Oogie Boogie, who first kidnaps Dr. Finklestein, and forces him to create minions for him. Oogie then proceeds to kidnap five out of seven of the holiday leaders, and his master plan is to become the Holiday King.

Thanks to Sally, Jack is informed about Oogie’s plan, and returns to Halloween Town, and finds only Oogie’s shadow. So now Jack needs to stop Oogie’s plan once again and to do that he will need to defeat every enemy in his way, solve puzzles, and travel through different holiday worlds. The gameplay is similar to Devil May Cry, and after you finish a mission, you will receive a grade depending on how long it took for you to finish the mission, your longest combo, how much damage you received, and the number of surprised enemies. The grades are A, B, C, D, and S.

Jack will acquire different costumes through the game, and each one of them will give him a different ability. For example, using the Santa Jack costume will give him the ability to throw presents at enemies and stun them, and also freeze them on ice. All types of costumes can be acquired while playing, but not all of them will grant Jack new abilities. The game has 24 chapters in total and two secret chapters.

Summary

Turning The Nightmare Before Christmas into a hack and slash game is a weird choice, but it works. Capcom developed Oogie’s Revenge, so the combat is extremely well done and satisfying. This game is amazing for fans of the movie, and for fans of hack and slash.

7

However, it might be a little too easy, since the game’s target audience is kids. The game does have its issues, not only is it an old game, but the pacing of the game is bad, and in the end, it feels like an unpolished game. Also, the story seems to be really similar to the one in the movie, making it feel unoriginal. Thankfully the game combat system is well-made and fun, and the game has great sceneries, and really makes you feel like you’re in a world made by Tim Burton.

Pros

  • Fun combat
  • Great ambiance

Cons

  • Lazy story
  • Weird camera angles
