Very Good

Surprisingly Linear

Bully is a fun adventure game that seems to be designed such that the authors of the adventure ensure that you get to play all of it. The only way to progress is to complete a critical path set of missions which don't seem to have negative long-term repercussions for failure. The Wii controls are a little bit awkward and/or unresponsive at times (like Shop and Chemistry), but not so much as to seriously detract from the game, especially with the parts where the controls particularly shine (like dodgeball and, of course, fighting). The game does suffer somewhat from low polygon count (unimpressive graphics), flat AI that spouts random lines from a nonsense script, and a general inability to actually free-play in the much-touted interesting world of factions and castes (natural consequence of inadequate AI). But it is a fun adventure game and a good example of the current state of the genre.

I liked the play though some of the classes you attend if you chose to attend classes can be a bit too difficult. I also didn't really care for not being able to have a real relationship with any of the girls. Also I didn't care for the fact that you were forced by the limited story line to be a jerk all the time very few chances to actually just do the right thing without having to break a law or a jaw to do it.

Honestly I wasn't expecting much from Bully. But I figured if i tried it, try it on the Wii. But boy was I wrong, its great. If you like the Grand Theft Auto Series and can't wait for VI then this is your quick fix. The graphics aren't anything to gloat about but the game play is fun and creative. And of course the hilarious voice acting and random outburst from the crowds keep you entertained.
