Questo gioco non diventa mai vecchio, è sempre un piacere giocarlo, a parer mio è uno dei giochi più originali della Rockstar.
La colonna sonora è dannatamente bella, i personaggi ben caratterizzati e perchè no anche un po stereotipati (Ad esempio Nerd Ciccioni e brutti, palestrati stupidi come delle scimmie ecc).
La personalizzazione è ampia ma sinceramente non mi è piaciuta cosi tanto, alla fine (parere mio) il look base rimane quello migliore (Divisa scolastica e taglio militare)
Le fazioni: Nella scuola di Bullworth ci saranno diverse fazioni che si faranno la guerra a vicenda: Bulli, Nerds, Fighetti, Greasers, Palestrati e Reietti, vi ritroverete a scontrarvi con queste fazioni o ad aiutarle.
Ovviamente è un gioco ambientato in una scuola, quindi dovrete anche andare alle lezioni che si terranno lungo le giornate, ognuna di esse se completate daranno bonus aggiuntivi o costumi al giocatore.
Collezionabili: Beh, come ben sappiamo in molti giochi della Rockstar ci saranno molti collezionabili in giro per la mappa, quali elastici blu (Citazione alla lotta contro il bullismo nelle scuole) e le carte di G&G (Citazione al famosissimo gioco Dungeons&Dragons)
Beh, non saprei cos'altro aggiungere, Bully va giocato , non è adatto al casual gamer o al finto gamer dato che molti di essi lo considerano "La brutta copia di GTA" Oppure "GTA a scuola", no ragazzi miei, questo titolo, è tutt'altra storia, non c'entra una pippa con GTA!
Beh non mi resta altro che augurarvi buon soggiorno a Bullworth, e mi raccomando: NON siate poi cosi buoni!

Simpatica idea della Rockstar Games, che crea un gioco perfettamente in linea coi vari titoli del filone Grand Theft Auto per lo stile e per la struttura di base. La variante qui sta tutta nell'impersonare, al posto del classico criminale senza scrupoli, un semplice bullo di una scuola americana. Le missioni, l'ambientazione, il gameplay e tutte le caratteristiche principali si presentano caratterizzate quindi da un contesto scolastico-adolescenziale (per capirci, bisognerà ad esempio seguire le lezioni, oppure ottenere il rispetto dei vari gruppetti, o ancora conquistare le ragazze).
Sebbene dopo una certa quantità di ore inizi a sembrare ripetitivo nelle meccaniche, Bully è decisamente un titolo in grado di divertire il giocatore. Oltretutto, è una piacevole variante per gli appassionati dei vari capitoli di GTA.

Onestamente non ho molto da dire, è come un Grand Theft Auto solamente che siamo un ragazzo che vuole conquistare la scuola, e ci aiuteranno le varie fazioni che ci sono: Secchioni, Palestrati etc... ma non andrà a buon fine.

Pro:

+ Stile Grand Theft Auto
+ Buona idea di gioco
+ Storia
+ Divertente

Con:

- Porting fatto male

----------------------------------------------------------
English

I honestly do not have much to say, is like a Grand Theft Auto just that we're a guy who wants to take over the school, and will help the various factions that are: nerds, jocks, etc ... but it will fail.

Pro:

+ Style Grand Theft Auto
+ Good game idea
+ Story
+ Fun

Con:

- Bad Porting

Bully: Scholarship Edition si rivela un buon gioco free-roaming dal tipico sapore Rockstar Games, dal gameplay vario e mai noioso e dalle missioni spesso ironiche e che non sfociano mai nel cattivo gusto. Purtroppo il comparto tecnico non al passo coi tempi non gli garantisce un posto tra i videogiochi "classici", come lo è stato per la sua edizione originaria per PlayStation 2. Tuttavia è un gioco che si fa gustare ugualmente e che intrattiene al meglio il videogiocatore restando comunque un buon gioco, assolutamente consigliato.

Definitely in my top 10 favourites games. Ever.

I can spend hours and hours in this and never get bored.

It's good on any platform (speaking from experience e.g. Wii, PS2, PC, etc), but a warning, surround sound seems to be a bit messed up on this, so make sure you set your audio to 2.0.

Other than that, it's not a half bad port. The framerate is capped to 30, but understandbly so for a console port. It can be uncapped with mods. The pc controls still work fluently once you know them well, and can easily be rebound for preference. Though, I do recommend using a controller for a better experience.

So much love, care, and effort went into this game. It's so great.

Welcome to Bullworth Academy. You play as a 15 year old thug of a kid named Jimmy Hopkins in this third person open world beat-em-up. Sure you get plenty of weapons like the slingshot, eggs, stink bombs that prevent enemies from attacking, firecrackers, a potato cannon and even a bottle rocket launcher, but you'll be spending most of your time brawling. The game is Bully, but you're more of an avenging angel. Sticking up for the weak, but following missions from pervert teachers, and the local crazies. Its the characters in Bully that really make the game stand shoulder to shoulder with Grand Theft Auto games. There is also plenty to do outside of the story missions. Bike races, collect-a-thons, arcade games that are worthy of their own games, classes that are really mini games that will unlock things for you and even a camera so you can take photos of every dumb thing you'll see. Instead of mayhem and murder like the GTA franchise, Bully is more of criminal mischief and knocking people unconscious. You don't even brutally win fights, enemies just fall over. You can finish them off with a childish noogie, putting them in a headlock and spitting on them or one of the many other silly ways.

The game plays similar to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas meets the Warriors. You have jump and run buttons. An attack that you can hold for a strong attack. A target lock on for projectile weapons. If you don't have one equipped, it becomes a block button when you're not attacking. A free aim button for your sling shots, eggs and so on. A grapple button for when enemies block. You can shove someone when grappled. A taunt button that you can also take them down if grappled. Its a nice simple combat system. A local bum will teach you better attacks when you find and bring him radio parts. Your wrestling coach will teach you grapples in class. The items in your inventory are easy to select on the fly. You can also pick up things like bats and bricks to use and throw. You can even make peace by talking or bribing your way out of things. When you need health, just drink a soda or find some food.

The game is broken up into chapters, the first chapter takes place exclusively in the academy, but chapter two opens the gates and lets you into the rich side of town. Chapter three unlocks the poor side of town and chapter five unlocks a large industrial side of town. There's not only a sense of progression from parts of the town opening up, but the game takes place over a year and you'll see the seasons change. You'll participate in Halloween, slide around in the winter and see spring return.

Each chapter focuses on a faction and there are plenty of them. Nerds in green, bullies in white, greasers in leather jackets, preps in aqua berry and jocks in blue. Each faction has their own turf at the academy, and outside the academy as well. There are even factions outside of academy that will rise against you. All factions have a respect level for you. The less respect, the more likely the members will chase after you wanting a fight! Story missions will always change a faction's respect for you. Sometimes a little, sometimes a lot.

Since this is an open world game you'll be doing a lot of traveling. The main way is by foot. You need to mash the run button to go fast. The enemies all run as fast as you do, but luckily they have stamina and Jimmy doesn't. You quickly unlock a skateboard that sits in your inventory. Its much quicker, but can't go upstairs without a sweet jump or over muddy terrain. There are also bikes, but the bikes feel few and far between. You can throw someone off a bike and steal it, or you can buy a bike, but then it sits in a garage, making it useless when you need to visit a garage in town when you're at the school most of the time. Other than that, you can ride lawn mowers and mopeds. It all feels like a balance. To get speed you button mash. If you're on a lawn mower you're stuck going slower than walking. If you're on a moped you need a helmet or the cops will be after you.

Speaking of laws, there are plenty. You have typical laws against violence, but there are also truancy and curfew laws too. The game lets you know what your offense is on a three step 'wanted' level. When your wanted level hits red, then you can't struggle against the authorities. When they catch you that's it. On campus there are perfects, that act like the police. They'll bring you to class if you're truant, chase you for a dress code violation like wearing a chicken head and stop you from bullying. Sometimes them bringing you to class is more efficient than running to it. When you're in violation, you'll see not only the authorities highlighted on the mini map, but their vision cones. The game makes use of stealth on some missions, but for the most part, its just avoiding the gaze of the cops and perfects. You can even hide in lockers, the trash or dressers in the girl's dorm.

The game is really set to a timetable that can sometimes break the flow. You wake up in the morning and have two classes in the day. You need to find a bed to sleep and if it gets too late, Jimmy will fall asleep where he is and wake up the next day. You can skip classes, but then the authorities will be after you. I felt stuck and forced to partake in the mini games. I want to point out that the class mini games are entertaining and some are educational, but having them forced upon you when I'm trying to do a mission seems a bit much. You can learn things from the game. Such as the flags to different countries in geography, a boggle like make a word with letters in English and even how to dissect animals in biology. I'm not saying this will replace schools by any means. There are also typical timed button press mini games that are less impressive. The game offers a wide array of mini games, even games that parody other games, such as Paperboy, Punch Out and dodge ball! There are even random people that will give you side jobs, like throw 3 nerds in lockers, deliver 3 fries, collect 5 crabs, and so on. All fluff.

The money feels useless. You can spend it on weapons, but why bother when he has an arsenal in his dorm room from completing mini games? There are expensive clothes to buy and tattoos, but why bother other than for cosmetic reasons? Sometimes the game forces you to dress a certain way or get your hair done at the barber shop. You can't buy real estate, even if you can clear out a gang hideout to make it a new save point safe house.

There are dozens of characters in the game. In fact every random person has a name and schedule. You can even take pictures of all of them for the yearbook. Most of the characters are downright evil with a few exceptions. Garry, the over the top villain with an eye scar that lies to cause trouble. Petey, the short effeminate best friend. The drunk Santa. The alcoholic English teacher. The two timing dame that uses men. Russell the big dullard so dumb he calls himself Russell. Its all done in a tongue in cheek 1950s stereotype. The game feels very 1950s even with its awful happy beach guitar riffs. It didn't take me long to turn turn the music down to 10%.

I managed to sink around 17 hours into this game, but I've gotta be honest, I wanted to be done a long time ago. I just spend too much time traveling and wasting too much time doing mini games. At some point I stopped going to class just so I could grind through the missions efficiently. Then the missions started getting further and further. Consuming more precious time that Jimmy is awake during the day. Doing missions back to back so late just means that Jimmy would fall asleep on the street. There are also a few game breaking bugs that would cause the game to freeze or downright crash. Not frequent, but at specific points. I still recommend the game for an open world mischief sandbox that lets you do wedgies, throw firecrackers in toilet and slap kick me signs on people, then watch them get beat to a pulp.

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)

One of my favorite classic games from Rockstar and on the PS2. It's like Grand Theft Auto, but you play as a teenage kid in a small open world town of Bullworth. It has a much more toned down violence compare to the GTA series, just from fist fights to sling-shots, and etc. Graphics are dated but gameplay is very fun. Not only that but the game also contains many great and memorable soundtracks.

This is pretty much my favorite game ever made! I mean it for real and I will tell you why. Bully: Scholarship Edition is an amazing game with awesome storyline, characters and tons of tasks, missions, minigames, races and EASTER EGGS ( I love hidden stuff) . I've discovered the game when I was like 11 and I immediately downloaded it from the first torrent tracker I found. I've played for some days and I completed the story. I checked my save file and there was a frustrating number telling me that the game is 52% completed... That was frustrating as hell. I decided to complete it again and unlock absolutely everything I can. I've put over 60 hours and it was a great experience! I've had an amazing time playing this! So, to sum up the game has:
+ Funny concept
+ A lot of characters
+ Fighting technics
+ Amazing storyline
+ A nice open world system
+ Tons of unlockables and collectibles
The only thing that isn't on a level is the soundtrack. There actually aren't any songs in this game, just melodies.
10/10 Absolute masterpiece! Oh, yeah! Sorry, Mr. Burton for the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ pranks I made on you.

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.
