Bully: Scholarship Edition (PC)

 

PC game enthusiasts know they're in trouble when a game's menus require keyboard input rather than allow you a mouse pointer. That's the first indication, but hardly the last, that this version of Rockstar Games' boisterous look at schoolyard folly is...

Bully: Scholarship Edition (Wii)

 

Jimmy Hopkins is not your standard video game hero. In Bully: Scholarship Edition, he breaks a drunken schoolteacher out of an asylum, helps the lunch lady drug her date, steals panties from the girls' dorm, and takes pictures of snotty kids sitting on...

Bully: Scholarship Edition

 

After falling under the radar with its late '06 PS2 release (and being cancelled on the original Xbox), Bully makes its debut on a Microsoft system with an expanded "Scholarship Edition" that adds four new classes to the original game's six, alongside...

When it first came out, I thought that Bully would have benefited greatly from an increase in hardware, and I'm surprised to say that Bully fared better as an overachieving PS2 game than as an underachieving 360 game. Due to the SE's problems even with...

I feel ashamed. I am one of the various people who simply passed up on Rockstar's Bully when it released back in 2006, for mostly the same reason as everyone...

Inredibly Well Written ; Plenty to See and Do ; Interesting Characters ; Controls are Excellent

Some Nasty Glitches (360 version) ; Still Looks Like a PS2 Port

Bully Scholarship Edition Game Review–Makes The Honor Roll With A Bullet

 

I've been looking forward to trying this one for a long time.  It's true—this is the first time I've managed to get my hands on a copy of Bully: Scholarship Edition.

Bully: Scholarship Edition

 

Reliving high school is a nightmare that most adults do not even want to think about. I mean who wants to go through being picked on by the jocks, being dumped by your sweetheart, or embarrassing yourself by bad clothing choices? Who wants to have to...

One of the most fun video games I have played in quite a long time.

Usually when a game gets ported to a superior platform, all of the flaws from the original game pop up and ruin the experience. However, when Rockstar and Mad Doc software took Bully (originally a Playstation 2 game) and brought it to the Xbox 360,...

The bottom line is that Bully: Scholarship Edition is one of those games that you have an extremely hard time putting down and allows the mischievous kid in all of us to come out. It is engaging, fun to play and downright additive at times. There are...

Bully: Scholarship Edition

 

Manhunt 2 was supposed to bring a more adult oriented title to the Wii with great fanfare, but its aggressive mediocrity prevented that dream from coming to fruition. Bully: Scholarship Edition manages to be the game everyone wanted Manhunt to be,...

This port uses the motion control wisely, the combat is by far some of the most engrossing I've ever found on the Wii ; The minigames are entertaining and varied ; Rockstar's signature storytelling is intact with Bully, and although with less scope...

Most of the weapons are afterthoughts ; It is a port so even with new material, if you played the game, you've already gotten the bulk of the experience

This game is a treat and is well worth picking up to at least check out the combat. Rockstar delivers a port that feels like it was actually developed for the Wii, instead of just tacking the motion control into the existing code.

The premise of Bully: Scholarship Edition is simple. Jimmy Hopkins is dropped off at Bullsworth Academy by his parents, who are a little happy to be rid of him. Jimmy gets a first-class tour of the school from a friend who professes his love for...

Fantastic audio work ; Open-world ripe for exploration ; Extra content seals the deal

Complex mission restarts an annoyance ; Could look better on 360

Put all this together, and Bully: Scholarship Edition is a great game. For fans of GTA, Bully will be a must play, especially if you're looking for something to get your mind ready for the April 29 release of GTA IV. However, even if you're unfamiliar...

Administer high school beatings all over again in the most realistic way ever!

Living world ; Lots of gameplay variety ; Amusing writing and story

Poor, glitchy graphics ; Wii controls make fighting tiresome ; Sometimes there's nothing to do until the next day

I'm with DAaaMan; Bully was a big surprise for this year as well. One of the best games I played. I would totally recommend it.

Product Specifications

The Rockstar tradition of groundbreaking, original gameplay and humorous tongue-in-cheek storytelling invades an entirely new setting: the schoolyard. As a mischievous schoolboy, you'll stand up to bullies, get picked on by teachers, play pranks, win or lose the girl, and ultimately learn to navigate the obstacles of the worst school around, Bullworth Academy - a corrupt and crumbling prep school with an uptight facade. The story follows Jimmy Hopkins, a teenager who's been expelled from every school he's ever attended. Left to fend for himself after his mother abandons him at Bullworth to go on her fifth honeymoon, Jimmy has a whole year at Bullworth ahead of him, working his way up the social ladder of this demented institution of supposed learning, standing up for what he thinks is right and taking on the liars, cheats and snobs who are the most popular members of the student body and faculty. If Jimmy can survive the school year and outsmart his rivals, he could rule the school. Ready yourself for a hilarious return to campus living with Bully, the outrageously funny debut title from Rockstar Vancouver.
