"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.
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.
A Great Classic!GeoffAussieSpy | Aug. 25, 2015 | See all GeoffAussieSpy's reviews »
I played Bully almost 10 years ago and I had a blast. I got it on PC for just about $3 on a sale and I've enjoyed every second of the game. I love how you get to know every single character in the game and then see them around the school and town. You get lots in this game. The story in it is amazing and the little side missions are also very good and interesting. Not repetitive at all and I love that. This game is just a great classic and if you never got the chance to play, I recommend getting it. It's just so much fun. Still lives up to today.

This game is exactly what the title says. It is basically a game about bullies and bullying people. It is definitely worth it to buy. Although the graphics and controls may be old and hard to understand, once understood, the game becomes more fun. You are attending a school in which you can take or skip classes and do whatever you want basically. You can explore the area, do side missions, or just ride around. The concept is sort of like GTA, but a school simulation. This game is very fun.

Jimmy's trouble making has seen him kicked out of several schools, thus he ends up at Bullworth Academy boarding school. It is up to you to climb the hierarchy of the school while maintaining your grades. The game is an open world sandbox with similar mechanics to the GTA-series with missions and side activities. There is plenty of pranks and fun activities to be done and the story is compelling and humorous.

Rockstar delivers yet another classic game. The game is basically Grand Theft Auto at a private school. You play as Jimmy Hopkins doing acts of violence around school. What's interesting is that you actually have to go to class! It is much more hilarious and entertaining than Grand Theft Auto, I must say. The controls are weird for a mouse and a keyboard. I would recommend using a controller. The gameplay is great on the computer. If you had this game on a console, I would recommend getting it for PC. The game produced hours of fun and laughter, and will be a keeper in anyone’s book!

This game is the equally as violent, but less gruesome version of another of Rockstar's franchises, GTA. But while the violence seems a bit toned down (Q: how could you ever get away with a kid holding a gun?), the brutality is still strong here (A: make it a BB gun!), with pretty much the same mechanics of beating people up, stealing their stuff, later, rinse, repeat. The story isn't a slouch either, holding the gameplay together, tighter than a wedgied nerd. Playing the factions for their alliance is a lot of fun, and sometimes it's interesting watching the dynamics of each clique interact with each other, with or without your influence. The game itself is a progression of open world mechanics. I like that it was open world, but introduced as a piece meal. We only get parts at a time, but once it's unlocked, it's unlocked for good (unless the plot calls for otherwise). This is a great game for GTA fans like myself. It has the same feel as GTA, but it's a whole different ride itself.
