Added DiffLines:

* GameBreaker: Jack's Pumpkin King form's ability to spread flame is already handy against clearing enemies, but it is very effective against most bosses, especially if one were to use a cheat code to make it so that Jack's Pumpkin King form has infinite power.

* TearJerker: The reprise of "Sally's Song".

to:

* TearJerker: The reprise of "Sally's Song".Song", where Sally laments everyone in Halloween Town being deceived by Oogie and Jack tries to assure her that everything will be alright.
* ThatOneBoss: The final battle against Oogie can be particularly grating, especially the RhythmGame finale, since this time screwing up the button prompts causes Jack to lose health, resulting in death if the player screws up too often.

* TheProblemWithLicensedVideoGames: Thankfully averted. While ratings are around the 6-7/10 range, there's a large bit of CriticalDissonance, as user ratings are around the 7-8 range.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Filthy Finale.

to:

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: All of the game's dance battles, but ''A Filthy Finale.Finale'' is generally agreed to be the best of the bunch.



* {{Sequelitis}}: Downplayed. It's a solid game, but compared to the plot of the movie, the game's story is very straughtforward and uninspired. That doesn't make seeing Halloween Town in action again any less satisfying.

* {{Sequelitis}}: Downplayed. It's a solid game, but compared to the The very basic plot wouldn't feel out of place in a fanfic, the movie, writing and dialogue can feel very forced at times, and the game's story tone never quite seems to match up with the original film. Ultimately, though, the game itself is very straughtforward solid, and uninspired. That doesn't make seeing Halloween Town the characters in action again any less is extremely satisfying.



** The game is kicked off when Jack leaves for two months to find new and interesting discoveries to improve next year's Halloween. When he comes back, his mission is never brought up again, and we never find out if he did find anything while he was gone.

** While remixing the musical numbers from the film is part of the whole point, some fans have expressed disappointment that the game only features a single new song.

* CharacterDerailment: In the film, Sally takes an active part in trying to stop Jack ruining Christmas and later attempting to save Santa. In the game, she's mostly there for Jack to save her, give optional help for a BossBattle and offer moral support.
** CharacterRerailment: That said, she effectively saves Christmas by bringing Jack's sleigh to Christmas Town after Oogie makes off with Santa's.

Added DiffLines:

* FridgeHorror: Most of Halloween Town's residents are absent from the game. At one point, it's suggested that they're just hiding from Oogie, it's not out of the question that he Double Killed some of them during his takeover.


Added DiffLines:

* NightmareFuel: Not as bad as the original movie, but not without its moments.
** Oogie controls Dr. Finkelstein by replacing his brain with...something else. A green brain with eyes at the front.
** Oogie's lair. Bad enough in the film, but it's apparently been expanded into a massive combination between a casino and hell itself.
