Bully: Scholarship Edition

Third party DRM: Steam

This game requires a free Steam account to play.

Description

"And what's the best way to gain power and prestige at a new school? Pranks and violence, of course!" - ign.com

"Bully is one of the better gameplay experiences in recent years, letting you break a drunken schoolteacher out of an asylum, help the lunch lady drug her date, steal panties from the girls' dorm, and take pictures of snotty kids sitting on the lap of a homeless Santa." - gamespot.com


Bully: Scholarship Edition takes place at the fictional New England boarding school, Bullworth Academy and tells the story of mischievous 15-year-old Jimmy Hopkins as he goes through the hilarity and awkwardness of adolescence. Beat the jocks at dodge ball, play pranks on the preppies, save the nerds, kiss the girl and ultimately navigate the social hierarchy in the worst school around.


Key Features:

  • Story – Scholarship Edition brings together all of the clichés surrounding school, the cliques, the teachers, the pranks and creates an environment which is hilarious to play and interesting to explore.

  • Variety – With 82 missions, 45 lessons, loads of mini games and collectibles, Bully provides over 30 hours of entertainment.

  • Pranks – Spread the mischief. Use your slingshot to annoy the school mascot, give the preppies wedgies, leave a stink bomb in the cheerleader’s locker, trip the prefects on well placed marbles, drop firecrackers in the toilets and own the school.

  • Characters – Over 100 voiced characters to socially interact with among several social groups; jocks, nerds, preppies, greasers, teachers, townies, carnies and of course girls.

  • Choice – You’re in charge. Decide whether you have a positive or negative effect when interacting or accepting missions; you can say hello to fellow classmates or deliver mean wedgies. Even decide which girls you want to kiss or what classes to skip.

  • Music – Original score creates a dynamic atmosphere that compliments the schoolyard experience seamlessly.

feels like GTA meets an old adventure paltformer

always thought this was just an over complicated gta clone. it has all the things you would expect from one, but seems to just surpass it enough to make it its own thing. The graphics are nicely updated in this version and the gameplay is always fantastic. the only thing that bothers me sometimes is the camera ( it might just be me but it likes to jump around from time to time).

albeit the graphics are still very out dated, and the voice overs could use some work... still a very enjoyable play through no matter what.

It's fun getting into trouble

While the GTA series becoming increasingly self-serious, Bully carries itself with an mischievous swagger. It takes all the aspects of an open-world sandbox game and instead of building bigger and outward, it focuses on a more tightly constrained setting littered with detail. There is a real dedication to the theme here, where instead of murderous gun-toting sociopaths and career criminals, the world is populated by high school archetypes who throw stink bombs, wheel around on bicycles and have crushes on each other. Time progresses on a schedule, and you'll have to learn how to manage going to class and attending school functions with shenanigans and getting into trouble. It's a much more lighthearted take on open world games, but hangs on to its rebellious streak with pride.

Bully Review

DarkSparda | Feb. 10, 2014 | See all DarkSparda's reviews »

bully: scholarship edition is a great sequel to bully on the ps2. the new add-ons are pretty baller. the 8 new missions are fun. the multiplayer mode is ok. its not really that fun, unless you and a friend are really bored. the new classes give you more things to do besides missions. the new characters are fun to use. overall this game is a great sequel. this game is for the person who likes GTA without all the blood, drugs, and guns. i recommend this game to anyone who is a GTA fan. i recommend this for someone who got the 1st bully. the story line goes like this. you are a troubled teenager named jimmy hopkins. his mom goes on a year long honeymoon. he goes to bullworth academy. you go around and complete mission, go to class, and complete jobs for people. it has the same kinda story line as GTA. you have to earn the respect of all the cliques.

Bully: Scholarship Edition offer a lot of great features such as: Great variety of weapons - You can use a lot of different things as weapons, whether it's items that you have created in chemistry class or if you have found fruits. There are also other weapons that you receive through out the game. Another little fun weapon is snowball(s). Classes - There are different classes you "need" to attend to some of these are English, Math, Art, Chemistry and others. Each class give you are reward for fulfilling it. Transportation possibilities - You can use skateboards, bikes, scooter and Go-kart. And of course the traditional method walking. Fun Fair (Or what you would call it) - It is a great place with several fun mini games and with rewards from a gift shop. A great place to visit if you are tired of the missions or just want to have some fun. There are also other features such as "factions" of students, customization (clothes) and stuff like that.

The graphics are still good considered it is an old game. It got a lot of details and sometimes you can just walk around and enjoy the good looking world.

I definitely recommend this game, it is made by one of my favorite developers which is Rockstar. You can clearly see that some places they have had GTA's exploration in mind. You can look at Bully Scholarship Edition and think it is a school like GTA with less blood and violence.

Simply Amazing

Although the graphics may be a little outdated by today's standards and the lip syncing is a bit off this game is still an alltime favourite of mine. The part that shines the most in this game is the story. Rockstar outdid themselves by creating a game that would totally immerse it's players and giving them an experience they will love. You take on the role of 15 year old Jimmy Hopkins and as the name implies you are a bully, at this new school you will encounter several groups of stereotypical high school kids and do missions to earn respect amongst them all and work your way up the food chain. If you are thinking of buying this game and don't think it is worth the money then let me tell you that this game is still worth £30 and getting it for anything less is an absolute steal as you will have hours of fun even after you beat the main story.
