''Based on a true story.''

• I was only nine years old.
• I loved Bully so much, I had it for the original PS2.
• I pray to Rockstar every night before bed, thanking them for the games I have been given.
• ''Rockstar is love'' I say, ''Rockstar is life.''
• My dad hears me and calls me a console peasant.
• I knew he was just jealous of my devotion for Bully.
• I called him a PC master faget.
• He slaps me and sends me to go to sleep.
• I'm crying now and my face hurts.
• I lay in bed and it's really cold.
• A warmth is moving towards me.
• I feel something touch me.
• It's Gaben.
• I am so happy.
• He whispers in my ear, ''-75% Bully: Scholarship Edition.''
• He grabs my wallet with his powerful bribing hands and puts me on my hands and knees.
• I'm ready.
• I agreed with the Steam terms and conditions.
• He pilfered my wallet hole.
• It hurt so much, but I do it for -75% Bully.
• I can feel my wallet emptying as my eyes start to water.
• I purchased the Grand Theft Auto Complete Pack.
• I want to please Gaben.
• He roars a mighty roar as he fills my inventory with his coupons.
• My dad walks in.
• Gaben looks him straight in the eyes and says, ''It was worth the weight.''
• Gaben rolls through my window.
• Gaben is love, Gaben is life.

A Classic For a Reason // Perfect For Rounding Out Your Rockstar Collection

+ Open-ended nature of character development allows for a firm hold of the manner in which your story progresses
+ Going to class is fun, yet optional; classes are defined by a set of minigames that are enjoyable and rewarding, in that they offer significant perks upon completion
+ Targeting system meshes well with the control-scheme and works fluidly in practice
+ Voice-acting (though it's of sub-par quality, overall) and sterotype portrayal is intentionally over-the-top, and fits snugly with the overall charm of the game
+ Factions system works very well; if you're in a fight, nearby students may defend you, or aid your tormentors, depending on your respective stance
+ City of Bullworth is surprisingly expansive and populated
+ There are myriad unlockables and minigames to get your hands on, further increasing the replay value
+ Very easy to mod, with an expansive community dedicated to keeping the game fresh and ridiculous

- Limited and repetitive ambient soundtrack
- Camera is mediocre at best, and can often becomes frustrating (particularly indoors)
- Stiff animations and poor visuals that haven't aged well (though much of this can be remedied via modding)

Bully is an open world school simulator of some sort where you bully people. Well no, Bully is like Grand Theft Auto, except you play as a 15 year old academy student who is placed on the worst school in the country because his mom and stepfather decided to go on a honeymoon, and they needed a place where they could set him off.

In Bully you're set to do typical favours and missions to earn status around the school so people won't be bullying eachother anymore, and as far as that goes; not so well.
So while you're on your mission for success in school, you still have the normal school courtesy to go to classes, skip classes and you will be punished to do school chores around the place.

During free roam, the game allows for a ton of stuff you can do outside the school after doing certain missions, and it is in great fun to do so collecting odd things to get some random stuff.

PROS:

-Great soundtrack
-Long and fun game
-Has things to do when you get bored of missions
-Freedom to do what you want
-Fun side activites
-Fitting atmosphere

CONS:

-Few bugs here and there
-PC controls are horrying, get a controller if you have
-PC controls are bad
-Did I mention PC controls?'


All in all, I would rate this game 9/10.
