  1. Welcome to Bullworth Academy, a melting pot of high school stereotypes. Outsiders are making plans to rule the world, teachers terrorize their pupils, sports aces and rock 'n rollers try to impress the girls while the posh students wrinkle their nose. While the GTA-style game itself is well done, the technical conversion to the PC is a bit sloppy. Should you ever be asked why video games are a cultural asset, show them Bully.

    This game isn’t just for gamers who were (or still are) playing truant – it’s an all-round enjoyable romp through satirical American high school-life, barring the many errors in portation from console to PC. [Issue#17]

    While Rockstar keep adding features to their GTA clones, the team decided to cut back on key elements, put the action into the surprising high school setting and created an immensely playable game. [Dec 2008]

    A great game, badly ported. [Christmas 2008, p.88]
  5. Bully offers a wide and open world in which you can roam freely. Ad some freaky characters and a one of a kind feel and you'll get bully. Too bad the game lost some of its powers over the last two years and that the overal look and gameplay of Bully feels a little outdated. If you've never played Bully you'll probably will have a blast, otherwise it's best to save some of that money for one of the other hundred or so titles that will be released this winter.
  6. There's nothing new to see here and given the effort that Rockstar seems to have put into this title it seems that it knows it.

    Bully's biggest problem is that it's a shoddy port job, rife with technical missteps that wouldn't warrant comment if they weren't so profoundly damaging to the game.

Her ne kadar güzel bir oyun olsa da ne yazık ki bu oyunun PC versiyonu tek kelime REZALET! Gerçekten çökmelerden, hatalardan, buglardan ve glitchlerden geçilmeyen bir oyun. Oyun sık sık çöktüğü için her görevden sonra oyunumu kaydedip o şekilde bitirebildim anca. Rocstar'ın da sanırım artık bunları çok düzeltme niyeti yok. Sonuç olarak oyunun kendisi çok güzel fakat ne yazık ki PC versiyonu berbat. Bunu PC'den işkence çeke çeke oynayacağınıza gidin PlayStation 2'de adam gibi oynayın. Expand

But the graphics problems did notIt's true the port is terrible, and the opening movie broke up several times on my ATI Radeon HD 2600. But the graphics problems did not continue into the game.

    I actually removed the game from my computer after being soundly beaten by bullies, struggling with difficult controls, etc. Then overnight, it grew on me, and I put it back, deciding to explore and go to class, rather than face my assigned "activity". So far, it's nicely unpredictable and amusing. Since it's being pretty heavily discounted in stores, I'd say it was a reasonable deal. It's certainly "different".

    Probaly one of WORST GAME of rockstar. Unfair and full of bugs and glitches doesnt deserve a continuation. Rockstar, throw this game on limbo.
