This game is great for fans of the movies like myself. If your not then i wouldn't recommend this title. GREAT new music but a lousy control scheme and almost impossible levels lowered my view of the game.

"Nightmare" needs some work, still bonechilling!

Admittedly, Nightmare's flaws are ghoulish! The targetting and camera system are both fixed. You can't target more than one enemy at a time, and you can't look around to see where you're going. The bosses can be tough if not properly equipped with the right upgrades which require some serious button-mashing if you want them. Jack Skellington's first solo outing on the PS2 is suprisingly playable despite its flaws. The graphics are great with cool level design and detailed landscapes. The characters and story line are incredibly faithful to the film with original songs and voice acting (although I have to wonder how Ooogie ever came back, considering the ending of the film?). If you're a Nightmare Before Christmas fan and are willing to work past the gameplay shortcomings, "Oogie's Revenge" really isn't all that scary.

Oogie Revenge has the best boss battles in any game because there are lot of fun musical numbers including 6 news songs and alot of fun playing as Jack Skellington aka the Pumpkin King. If your a Nightmare before Christmas fan you'll love this
