sweet game for wii, definatly reminds you of gta but a little less invloved. the fighting is good with the remote and nunchuck, and the aiming is cool with the slingshot and spud gun. buttons are a little tricky at first, but arent all wii games tricky at first. worth checking out

Bully is an awesome game for the wii. The wii hasn't really made any violent entertaining games, but this game is cool and violent. It is the best video game out there.

You take the role of "Jimmy" Hopkins, a 15 year old reject who ends up in Bullworth High, an independent boarding school in New England, being basically dropped by his mother and new stepfather, while they enjoy a one year honey moon cruise.

At the start of the game, you realize that this school is full of Bullies, and you are, for the moment, one of their main targets. The school is divided by groups covering all High school stereotypes: The Bullies, led by the not too bright-enormous big headed "Russell" (One of my favorite characters), the Preppies, or the rich kids, who all seem to be jerks, the Greasers who seem to be stuck in the 50's and roam the Auto Shop, The nerds, perhaps the most amicable fellas in school, though deeply under appreciated, the Jocks, from the football team, not very bright but certainly above Russell hilarious mental state.
In the beginning you are greeted by Pete Smith, who is best described as a sociopath, unfortunately not the funny kind, but one capable of dangerous treacheries.
Of course classes are important, and four new classes are added, which basically consist of completing a series of "mini-games", some of them effective and entertaining, other not so. One always get the sense (as with many other Rockstars games) that the team missed "Gameplay 101" class, and so many of the gameplay mechanics feel unpolished. Some of the classes are surprisingly entertaining and educational (like Geography) and others just feel like second thoughts-experiments (like Chemistry). It seems that the adding of the four new classes damaged the game balance, as you only have one chance to try out the class' minigames, and you can only attend two classes per day. One example of this breaking of balance was that I attended a Photograph class at the beginning of the game (which I failed miserably), and the game offered another chance to attend the class after finishing the game, having passed most classes in its multiples levels.
