Product Description

Platform: PC Download - Steam DRM


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 biggest flaw with the port of Bully would be the controls, but these are easily alleviated by using a gamepad, ideally the Xbox 360 controller itself. Other than that the game runs pretty well on the PC, and is just as fun as it was on the console. The gameplay is varied enough, and the story has the classic Rockstar tongue in cheek satire, and the sandbox world is fun to explore.

Bully is a really enjoyable game with a great premise and a fun universe. My problems with it lie in the quality of the port. It was originally designed for consoles and the keyboard/mouse controls feel awkward and ill-planned. One can get used to them, but I still found them uncomfortable and inferior to some other Rockstar offerings (GTA IV springs to mind).

Get yourself an Xbox 360 controller and you'll find this a much more enjoyable experience.

The game is fantastic, I have played it for PS2 as well as PC now. Most the tasks given are pretty simple, but the storyline is fun.

So I originally purchased it for just download and not an online code. The patches were impossible to install (trust me I spent a lot of time trying to do so). Amazon was very easy to work with to switch over to the online game code version instead.

When purchasing this game I had never used Steam to play PC games. I was a bit concern that the DRM might hinder use of the game; however, I found the opposite as it made it much easier to play. Steam as many might know, already has patches installed, so this made setup much easier.

Will not run at 1920x1080. Is stretched out well past the end of the screen. Have tried multiple work arounds, but will not work. Crashes often. Only 25 min run time. Thinking may not be able to stand it much longer.

Edit: With the 25 minute run time I've had to start the game over three times(as it crashes). Can't skip cutscenes even if you've seen them four times.

Do not bother buying it. It crashes even after patching it and adjusting the settings. It is a very poor PC port. And no fix is forthcoming from Rock star to help. So it be a huge waste of money

Brings back a lot of memories. Too bad I never got this for the xbox 360. Looks awesome if you install the ENB series and SweetFX. I'm not going to deduct a start just because its an older game. In it's day it was one of the best games on the PS2. People buying this game Know what its all about and it's limitations. Nice to see Rock Star has a bit of a soft spot instead the violent shooter that got them such controversy.

I didn't play Bully when it initially released and all my friends recommended it. I've been wanting to buy for the XBOX 360 but it's still about $20 at retailers. When I saw it here for about $5 I jumped on it. I haven't gotten too much into the game but it is a lot like GTA. I enjoy the class room mini-games that break up the mission structure and give you perks as you pass them.
