For a start, the combat- centered on Jack’s gooey "Soul Robber" whip and his holiday-themed costumes, such as a Santa outfit- doesn’t feel as slick as we’d like. There are plenty of moments where it just isn’t responsive enough to cope, despite the ability to dodge, or fling enemies about with your soggy whip- especially since your enemies respawn as soon as you step back into an area you’d previously cleared.
And there’s one detail that’s guaranteed to make you want to destroy people’s faces: Jack’s ‘Soul Robber’ voice sample, which blares out of his gum-free gob every... single... time... you use your weapon’s strong attack. That. Makes. Us. Mad.
