Bully:Scholarship Edition (Wii)

Imagine you are a thug, who gets expelled from nearly every school you went to,your Mother runs off and marries some random guy for his money and then ditches you at the lousiest boarding school on the face of Earth. Now you're in the shoes of the games protagonist, Jimmy Hopkins.

Bully is a game that feels like a Grand Theft Auto game at heart, but it has a couple of things you may or may not like. The Wii controls take some time to learn, but when you do it comes so natural you don't even notice you're clicking buttons or swinging your arms. The graphics may not be as good as some other games on the Wii but they are quite good (But the 360 has much better graphics), and some of the classes can be a bit tedious, but the faults are things that can be ignored for the bigger picture.

I found the storyline to be very interesting for a game of this type, and it has a lot of unexpected twists and turns.

Overall Bully is a game worth playing if your a fan of the GTA series, so what are you waiting for... go play it . =)

Bully deserves to be mentioned in the same vein as the PS2 era GTA games, but perhaps one notch below. Some issues such as subpar graphics, minor control issues, a...

    A Variety of Bad Gameplay Packaged into 1 Game 0

    I have never been a huge fan of Rockstar-developed games.  I tolerated GTA: Vice City as much as the next person, but have always found more to dislike in their games than I liked.  My short 2 hours with Bully was the culmination of many frustrating elements all rolled into one package.  Since I quit the game so early, I cannot intelligently comment on whether the meat of the game gets any better further down the road.  However, I will attempt to summarize the barrage of frustration that brought...
