Forgotten Continuations: The Nightmare Before Christmas Oogie’s Revenge

The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) has been regarded by many as a Disney, holiday AND Tim Burton classic. Even though plans for a sequel fell through because it might use CGI, that did not stop the people working at Disney and Capcom to make an excellent sequel that did not have to be a movie: The Nightmare Before Christmas Oogie’s Revenge (2004).

The scope of the game is bigger than the film that preceded it while it uses most of the same locations. A great advantage to the game is the use of remade songs from the film which have new lyrics for each battle. Jack Skellington was not sung by Danny Elfman this time. Instead, he was sung by Chris Sarandon, who also did the speaking voice in both the film and the game.

In the game, Jack uses a green and slimy device on his arm called the Soul Robber. When he uses it on enemies, he gets souls to purchase upgrades and items.

Oogie’s Revenge is a delight fo those who love Disney, Tim Burton or even The Nightmare Before Christmas for those who want a proper ending.
