Any Major Problems with the PC version?

#1 Posted by smallmanoncampus (122 posts) -

Bully:SE is on sale right now for 50% off on steam. I seem to recall there were rumblings that it was a bad port, but i really want to play this game. Any of you duders played it, and how was the experience?

Played it recently and uhh.. it's still a pretty bad port. I'd advise that you buy it on the consoles. Even then it's a bad port on the 360.. The PS2 version is the only good one left. :(

@Phatmac That really sucks. I played it on ps2 but never quite finished it. Guess I won't be getting it

It's completely unplayable on Windows 8.

I'd imagine a lot of games are unplayable on an OS that isn't currently officially supported by the majority of console port teams.

8 or 7?

8, but it apparently also has a lot of problems with W7 64-bit.

I have it on PC, but I never got it to work. I don't know.  
I need to try again. Haven't tried it on this new PC yet- sounds like it wont work on this PC either, though. I've had it on steam since last year or something.
Worked fine on PS2 when I got it a long time ago but I don't know where that copy is. I think my sister stole it or i gave it to her or something

Running perfectly for me (Steam version). Just don't ever, EVER try to play it with a mouse and keyboard, it's tailored for analog sticks.

I bought it last month for kicks. The mouse / keyboard controls are horrible. You have to play it with a controller. Also, there's audio problems like looping and overlapping dialogs that can get pretty disruptive. Great game, just poor port.
