Excellent

Enormous world and fun, simple gameplay

First things first, everyone wants to comare this game to Grand Theft Auto. If you're wondering if this game is better or at least as good as the latest heap of Grand Theft Auto games, the simple answer is "yes".

Yes, it's very similar to the Grand Theft Auto formula in that you can run around an enormous (and I do mean ENORMOUS) game world and do seemingly random tasks at your own free will without affecting the story itself.

Sound boring? Then you probably don't like the Grand Theft Auto games either.

Let's put it this way, if you liked the Grand Theft Auto games enough to buy two or more of them, my advice is to buy or rent this game----the formula may be similar, but the world itself is much more immersive and engaging. The random tasks in some of the Grand Theft Auto games (San Andreas in particular) seemed REALLY random and almost pointless, even if they were kinda fun.

But that's where Bully moves forward-------the tasks in the game, no matter how seemingly random, are also connected to some sort of goal that seems so legitimate to your character and his experiences in the game world.

If you're like me though, the GTA series was starting to feel old, worn-out (even if they are/were fun). So I was aprehensive about Bully, and even a little pessimistic perhaps? It takes a lot to surprise me, but I can't deny how much fun I've had with this game. I've played nearly 25 hours already, which says a lot to its addictiveness and size, especially for me.

This game is very fun when you begin you begin in your step fathers car on your way to bullsworth academy. This game has great graphics, has great mechanics like combos and controls, it has clothes custimization and you can color your own clothes. You get girlfriends that give you health when you kiss them. You can get busted just like grand theft auto and you can pass out just like getting wasted in grand theft auto. You can pick lck other kids lockers for new clothes but if you get caught you have to run to a secluded place and hide in a trashcan near by. You get classes like gym art chemistry and they have different mini games for eah class this game is very very good plz rent this game

If I can describe Bully,her it is. It's just like GTA only the younger ones can actually play without the parents having to worry about hearing CJ on San Andreas and his fowl mouth.The area is wide and open,but not SO open that you'll get lost and not know what to do next.

The story is good too,you know new kid comes to a new school,gets a trouble maker for a friend,gets in trouble already with school,finds out his "friend" is really trying to take over the school for himself.So you try to take over for yourself.

The classes are mini games so you actually have something fun to do while in class.You can get girlfriends,run arrons,enter races,and almost anything else that you can do in a GTA game.The only bad thing is that it's too short,and easy.But other than that it's probably the best game on the PS2 since Final Fantasy 12.No the graphics aren't the best but with all the other stuff to do who needs graphics!
