This is a great game (or at least was on ps2) but unfortunetly, crashes alot on windows 10. I've completed this game in about a day. I keeped losing progress whenever it crashes. so im gonna make a list of what not to do to help prevent the game from crashing. do this at your own risk if you choose not to take my advice.
1. do not talk to the lunch lady unless youre doing a mission.
2. do not try to save a custom outfit.
3. dont exit the math class before it ends.
4. (spoiler alert) when you fight russell be prepared to do that fight over and over again. it also lags alot(then again that could just be my computer its self.)
5. dont save in the principles office. always save at the boys dorm.
6. be careful using the rubberband ball.


I reccomend that if you have a ps2, pick up the hard copy of the game. its really cheap. or if you have windows 7, visa, or 8/8.1. it works fine on those. but it still periodicly

all of the things that make my game crash, could be totaly different on your computer. These are just things i have run into.

so my final verdict, DO NOT BUY THIS GAME FOR WINDOWS 10 UNLESS YOU LIKE LOSSING PROGRESS AND CONSTANT GAME CRASHES

PROS
Great story from what I've seen of it, plenty of quests, side quests, etc. Lots of minigames, immersive environment.

CONS
Personally, I dislike the feel of the game's movement and controls, so I cannot get into it.

VERDICT
If you have an IRL friend who owns this game, try out the controls first. If you can play through any control scheme, go for it.

Throw eggs at teachers, give wedgies to anyone you want (nerds, jocks, teachers too but you'll have to run fast afterwards...) and shoot mini-missles up a person's ♥♥♥ to have some laughs.

Besides all these funny things you can do at any time in this game, I wish to list all the pros and cons so you could understand what the game is realy about;


Pros:
+ An open world to explore, a BIG one, with 2 main environments - The school to which the main charachter goes, and the town around the school. Both of them are filled with side missions and main missions keeping you entertained for along time.
+ Flawless storyline built around the environments mentioned above with a lots of diversed missions, unlike most open world games.
+ Brilliant humor, mainly coming up through dialogs between the charachters but also from all the things you can do as part of the interaction with the world, and that would be the next on the list:
+ The interaction and possabilities in the open world - things such as smooching girls on a way to the class, running around doing wicked stupid things (such as mentioned in the beginning of the review!)
+ Great soundtrack
+ Long story/'campaign' - I played 15-20 hours and ony finished 1/3 of the game. There is a count of your progress by percantage that you can see everytime you save your game.
+ Fun/Dicking around factor is super high. If you love that kind of stuff this is the game for you.


Cons:
- Crashes Often on late versions of Microsoft Windows (8 or 10) - I'm playing this on a windows 10 laptop and this problem is fixable but the common solutions often do not work. Take this in to consideration if you want to buy this game
- The game wasn't designed for PC, therefore some of the QTE missions are annoying to do due to high fail rate (not optimal PC port)
- You have to save your progress manualy which can be annoing at first, although to me it's not even a con anymore (just get used to it and it won't bother you)

That's all I can think of, as a general opinion I would say this is an excellant game, even a brilliancy at some level.
I would rate it - 9.5/10 only because of the technical issues.

Bully is one of my favorite video games. I love the town, the characters, the gameplay, and most importantly the story. Unfortunately the game does not run well on Windows 10. With constant crashes, I often found myself trying to get to the nearest save point after every mission so I wouldn't have to replay it. The game has crashed on me at least two dozen times during my playthrough. I have had to replay several missions and redo several classes because of this, making the experience unappealing. On top of that I have experienced several graphical and audio bugs in the game.

That being said, the game is still amazing. If you're a fan of Rockstar games, this is one you should check out, especially if it goes on sale. It's hard to dislike this game even with all the issues I had. I kept going back to it. However, I recommendation saving very often because it is a nuisance when you have to replay a couple of missions because the game crashed.

I played this game several years ago when it first came out. I was young at the time so the game seemed difficult. When rebought the game on Steam this year, it was a lot easier than I remembered. Most of the missions can be completed in under 20 missions. I even completed some in less than 10 minutes. Some of the classes were harder than some of these levels. This does not mean the game is bad.

One of the best aspects of Bully is the story. To not ruin too much of the story, it's a typical coming of age/trying to find your way kind of story about a high schooler named Jimmy Hopkins. He goes out of his way for nearly everyone in the game. His ultimate goal is peace amongst the groups in school.

I highly recommend this game and you should check it out if you have the opportunity!

Played the original back in the day when it first came out, and loved it. 8 years later, I'm trying out the Scholarship Edition, and have to say my opinion of the game still hasn't changed. Really well done, and it's a shame that the series never took off.
