We’d almost forgotten about Tim Burton’s beautifully dark, animated kook-fest. In fact, it’s been such a long time, we were thinking this would be a festive stress management sim where the wrapping paper keeps tearing and Argos stops selling batteries. But the game brought it all flooding back: unhinged characters, spookily twisted environments and a tendency for breaking out into foot-tapping song. On the surface, it’s a great use of the license.
- Does the movie justice
- Burton-esque level designs
- Plenty of extra
- See "Soul Robber"
- The simplistic puzzles
- Lackluster combat
