i am bullys age so i might find this game more amusing than other people but i rented it for its high critic rating and how the plot sounded its fun with the wii remote too punch i would recemend this game too people who like the adventure category.
I bought the first Bully for the PS2 and I thought it was pretty fun, but the game was so easy that I didn't really feel i accomplished much. I was thinking it would be like Grand Theft Auto or something. Scholarship edition was a lot better than the first. Using the nun-chuck to swing your arms made the game uber intense. Also there are some new classes like biology. Using the controller to move your hands and dissects frogs, birds and other stuff makes the game more realistic from my point of view. I give this game props its definitely a rent!
Bully looks like a great game. It plays smoothly and the Wii controls are a great addition to what would otherwise be a button masher. The characterization is over the top and the voice acting is excellent.
I didn't like the game, however. You are always being "watched" and "timed" (the clock is always on the left of your screen ticking by very fast) and to have that "busted" type of feeling from Grand Theft Auto really doesn't fit in here for me as I was always running from the Prefects monitoring the space because some kid started something and I was forced to end it. The time goes by very fast and just like real life you never seem to have enough to do what you want to do, especially when you are being hounded by every bully, prefect, nerd, jock and whatever else between you and your intended destination. To top it off, I'm a night person and until you unlock those parts of the game, there isn't much to do after dark - you can't access any of your "quests" until daybreak again.
If you like kissing fat/ugly girls, listening to a bunch of jerks act like it, and running around reliving some type of school yard fantasy (or just feeling like you can actually pass the classes being taught) then this game is for you. I did not like much about it, though.
