    When this game first came out for PS2 I was curious, but never got around to playing it. Now that it’s out for Wii, I finally caved in to my curiosity and picked it up. Overall, I’m very impressed.

    I actually find this game more enjoyable than the Grand Theft Auto series (although GTA IV looks pretty amazing), because the universe is so much more quirky and unique. There are loads of bizarre characters to interact with, and based on your actions they’ll either befriend you or try to pound you whenever you walk past. The environments look great, and the whole town has an almost 1950s vibe to it (although it takes place in present day). If you have any sense of imagination whatsoever, you’ll be able to find countless things to do. Even without doing missions, it’s fun experimenting and seeing just what the game will let you get away with (answer: quite a lot). From giving wedgies and stuffing kids in trashcans to riding your bike across moving cars downtown, the developers pretty much thought of everything.

    When I heard the controls had been optimized for the Wii, I cringed a little bit. The Wii-mote can be great, but it seems most developers use it as a gimmick. Some sort of command is mapped to an awkward shake of the Wii-mote as an afterthought, and the gameplay just gets frustrating. Here, though, the controls are brilliant. To throw a left or right handed punch, you (surprise!) simply punch the air with your right or left hand. It’s intuitive and satisfying at the same time. Once you start unlocking new moves (from your P.E. class and your homeless friend) the fighting gets pretty comical/over the top.

    I do have a couple issues with the game, however. For one, there does seem to be a bit of lag when you’re moving quickly through some of the more complex areas of the game (the carnival, downtown, etc.). This is pretty minimal, though, and doesn’t really impede gameplay. I’ve noticed a couple bugs (characters flickering in and out of existence for a second), but these are pretty minimal as well, and don’t really interfere with gameplay. You would think they would’ve fixed this, though… Beyond that, my only complaint is that the characters and events at times can be painfully cliche. Nerds are your textbook nerds, preps are by-the-numbers preps, homeless characters only ever talk about alcohol/drugs, the “war”, and transistor radio parts, etc. I would have appreciated a little more creativity here, since there is so much potential for storytelling. However, the ridiculously fun gameplay and decent overall story (much better than most videogame stories, even if it’s not quite as good as a movie) more than make up for this.

    All in all, worth the buy […]. Hope they make a sequel, and I hope they don’t skip the Wii like they did with GTA IV.

    The problem with creating titles for a game is that often the game itself gets pigeon-holed simply from its titled. Take Bully. Now, reading the title, you’d automatically think that the game is about beating up people.

    Wrong.

    Yes, you definitely beat up people, but often you are doing so on behalf of other people. You’re plunked down into this school of natural-born hellions and are supposed to fend for yourself. Instead, as Jimmy you often end up fending for the less-liked people.

    Like real boarding school you have classes to attend (and can skip as long as the prefects can’t find you), curfew, and lights-out. Unlike real school you can put “kick me” signs on someones back, throw eggs at the preppies dorm, and can kiss tons of girls (which brings your health up – see, girls ARE good!).

    I’m a 28 year old woman who has spent hours of her evening time playing, and thoroughly enjoying this game. It is a wonderful stress reliever and definitely is a game that you can be easily sucked into.

    Is Bully Worth the Money?, July 18, 2008

    Yes! I purchased this game (I’m an adult female of 24 years old) and I have yet to put it down. Here’s some pros and cons for the readers of this review…

    Pros:

    #1. This game is one of the few that really make you think. I was a fan of Grand Theft Auto IV as well but while this could be a long distance relative to that game, Bully has a bit more than your regular shooting and killing game. As Jimmy, you have to go to the classes in order to graduate the school. Now, I’ve been out of school for a couple of years now and some of them really make you ponder. English and Math were the hardest ones and I still haven’t beaten the final Biology class.

    #2. This game has a “T for Teen” rating but I wouldn’t have given it that. The only thing that might make parents a little wary is the fact that once you reach level 3 you have the ability (ability meaning “you can but don’t have to”) kiss other boys. Other than that fun little tidbit, the weapons are child based. Sling shots, stink bombs, itching powder, potato launcher, etc. etc. In fact, when you shoot another kid with your slingshot (if you shoot a child or girl, you are immediately “punished” by the man)they are knocked out instead of killed like in other games. I would be completely comfortable letting my 10 year old nephew play this game without any worries.

    #3. The tasks are relatively easy. Even though the game doesn’t offer an “easy, medium, hard” choice, the missions are somewhat easy to figure out. Again, another plus for small kids (or adult women whose last game she played was Donkey Kong on the Super Nintendo).

    Cons:

    #1. Loading Time. The loading time on this game is a big buzz kill. I’m not a fan of loading times at all but Bully seems to overdo it by alot. Everytime you enter into a building it loads? That’s quite alot when you are on a mission and you have to enter four or five different buildings and everytime you walk through a door you have to sit through a 30 second to a minute worth of loading time.

    #2. Glitches. There are quite a few of them in this game. Little things where your school clock doesn’t show up and then you get busted for violating curfew. Another one is where you swing at an offender and for some reason or another you don’t connect. That one usually shows up in missions and you either have to start the mission over or turn your game off all together. Maybe it’s me but that does seem to irritate me.

    #3. Some of the classes are too hard. I know in my pro section I said that the classes teach you and that it is good for you but come on people? 2 and a half minutes to disect a pig into seven pieces?? I still can’t beat that biology class. Arggh!

    All in all? I give Bully an A-. Easily one of the best games I have seen but there are a few minor issues that cause some irritation.
