"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.

If you ever wondered what would happen if GTA creators would try to make a game about school, here you have it. It's GTA in school. You have many different side activities, like spelling, chemistry and all that, just like in school, but also have epic quests, like help the fat kid get into the toilet or for a doughnut. There is also plus size love interest to make things more interesting ;) Gameplay is sound, graphics for the time are fine (if I remember right, it was on San Andreas engine, so it is tolerable), but the worst thing is 30 fps lock on PC version, which is horrible and shows what lazy port it is. Yes, you can remove it, but it will do you more bad than good, breaking some of the game and cause many bugs, like say, playing Skyrim beyond 60fps. Everything else though is good, so if you can hook up your PC to TV and plug in the controller, you will have awesome experience.
If you ever wondered, what it's like to be Bart Simpson, once he reached 15, play this game, and you will get the answer. Bullworth academy is a place full of adventures, secrets, Bullies(duh) and nerds with mini rocket launchers(firework launchers to be exact) and generally a place that is as bad as it feels, when someone is a teenager. Fortunately, it's just a game, so the worst is the better right? :) Absolutely! The struggles of young Mr.hopkins makes this a rather rewarding adventure, and a great story, one that is all too easy to empathize with. No matter, if you are in the carnival, riding a scooter, of fighting off Jocks, school has never been this fun in real life, and by the time you are finished, young Jimmy will become a man, that would be capable to stand on his own in any GTA game. I just hope he will be a decent person, and never moves to Liberty City or San Andreas :)
Pros : - look like GTA game in a hostel... - you can troll your teacher - you can kiss every girl in this game even an ugly girl *LOL Cons : - there's no cheat available, coz the cheat code has been disabled *LOL
This game has more character than most games I've played. So many unique characters with their own personalities. It's a lot more condensed version of typical Rockstar game sandbox with plenty of sidemissions and activities. The gameplay is varied enough, that it doesn't become boring. As usual the voice acting is great for a Rockstar game Shawn Lee provided the game with a brilliant soundtrack that adds even more to a great game already. I own this game on three different systems which should be a testament to its quality.
I've bought this game at least 3 times at this point. I've 100%-ed it at least twice. This is the most charming and inviting thing Rockstar has ever made. It's just got a very warm, cozy vibe. It's nice to just go to class, skate around the town looking for collectibles, or mow a lawn or two. Maybe headbutt a jerk while you're at it. It's like if you took the adventurous camaraderie of early Harry Potter, combined it with the mostly-lighthearted retribution of the first Revenge of the Nerds film, and plopped that into a solid late-PS2-era GTA engine. Even thought the game is locked at 30fps it can be easily fixed by just looking online for a patch. This game is extremely fun and has a ton of replay ability in it. if you don't own this already just buy it.
