Product Description


Bully: Scholarship Edition takes place at the fictional New England boarding school, Bullworth Academy and tells the story of mischievous 15-year-old Jimmy Hopkins as he goes through the hilarity and awkwardness of adolescence. Beat the jocks at dodge ball, play pranks on the preppies, save the nerds, kiss the girl and ultimately navigate the social hierarchy in the worst school around.

KEY FEATURES

  • Story – Scholarship Edition brings together all of the clichés surrounding school, the cliques, the teachers, the pranks and creates an environment which is hilarious to play and interesting to explore.
  • Variety – With 82 missions, 45 lessons, loads of mini games and collectibles, Bully provides over 30 hours of entertainment.
  • Pranks – Spread the mischief. Use your slingshot to annoy the school mascot, give the preppies wedgies, leave a stink bomb in the cheerleader’s locker, trip the prefects on well placed marbles, drop firecrackers in the toilets and own the school.
  • Characters – Over 100 voiced characters to socially interact with among several social groups; jocks, nerds, preppies, greasers, teachers, townies, carnies and of course girls.
  • Choice – You’re in charge. Decide whether you have a positive or negative effect when interacting or accepting missions; you can say hello to fellow classmates or deliver mean wedgies. Even decide which girls you want to kiss or what classes to skip.
  • Music – Original score creates a dynamic atmosphere that compliments the schoolyard experience seamlessly.

The 1.2 patch corrected many of the issues making the game unplayable, but if you want to install the 1.2 patch on a windows 7 machine you must be running ultimate or enterprise to manually modify the security settings required to get the patch to install without error. Without the patch, the biggest (and repeating) problem is having load screens get stuck in infinite loops and losing any information since the last save. Amazon had a good deal on it and the gameplay is fun, but it is completely unbplayable for me on windows 7 home premium.

I recommend the Wii version over this. Even with patching, Win 7 can't handle this port. Speed of movement, graphics, controls, everything is off.

It IS a fun game - in its console versions.

Only get this game if you a running the slowest most outdated computer that is not on the market. That is correct. Anything past 1Gb of ram and windows xp and you are S.O.L.

It may run once and awhile for people with modern computers but not without crashing, freezing, never ever getting past the main loading screen, and if you somehow make to the game wear you can walk. EVERYTHING is see through.

And to those who think this review is either off or if I am a newb to computers here is my specs. These are not the best or the worst specs out there but are more than than qualified to run this game yet this game still likes to troll. GG Rockstar GG

I bought this game after watching several walk-through videos on youtube. It looked like a total blast. I downloaded it after reading over the minimum specs and I figured that I would be playing shortly after the download. Instead, between yesterday and today, I have spent around 10 hours trying to get this download to work. The patch is not compatible with Windows 7 and the game wont work without the patch. I have tried file extractions, safe mode reboots, msconfig toggling and nothing seems to work. I keep getting this 1628 error message. Had I known that I would have spent all that time screwing around with my system for nothing I would have avoided this purchase. Now I'm out $ and I have nothing but frustration to show for it. If you have Windows 7 avoid this title.

The idea is that you are a new student, with a bad reputation, at a prep school called Bullworth Academy. You are an outsider when you start, and there are factions of students (proto-gangs, if you will) that harass you. It's up to you to overcome them and basically become king of the mountain. At your disposal are a few friends (that you acquire when you complete missions for them), some weapons, the abilities to make stinkbombs and the like, and your ability to out-bully the bullies. You acquire skills by going to class or by bringing people items they are looking for. Just don't get caught by the prefects...or attack them, the staff, or the police!

The game is not impossible to complete, is a lot of fun, can be replayed often, simply because there are a lot of side missions that don't necessarily advance the story plot.

If you can cough up the extra ~$15 to get the Xbox 360 version (or basically anything but the PC version.)

The controls are really, really, really, really bad. If you have an Xbox 360 control for your computer, use it. Using the keyboard with this game is really annoying and makes the game awful to play. You will fail early missions simply because you can't control the game like you can with the Xbox.

The game runs great and the framerate is fine (Windows 7 x64, 4GB of RAM, Dual-core 3.1GHz), the game is really fun, but the PC version is a 'cautiously approach'. It works, but I would recommend paying extra for the console version as this game is completely worth it.

I got this game on download for about $5.70 from amazon.
I have played the PS2 version before and I really like Scholarship Edition because it offers a litte more in the way of gameplay.
The only down side to this game is the control scheme for pc, I've always been a console and joystick
type of gamer. Also if you dont have a fast pc connection it takes about a day to download this game.
Get a program called Xpadder online, it works with just about PC game and USB controller.
