Bully: Scholarship Edition
A Solid Game That Meets Its Expectations
Essentially Grand Theft Auto, but you're a teenager at boarding school, and you can only "knock people out". It's plenty of fun, the missions are diverse, the dialogue is fraught with comedy. Some people will see this as a sort of silly game, but after beating it (which takes quite a bit of time, especially if you're only a casual gamer) it's a nice little alternative after you get bored of your library of same old, same old. Granted, a weakspot in this game is that, much like Grand Theft Auto, free-roaming is not quite as fun as actually doing missions.
This game brings back your youthful side makes you want to go out and cause as much havoc as possible! I miss my ps2 just because of this game! I could play it over n over! Why is it not on ps3 yet lol?!? I mean come on who doesn't love shoving others into trash cans tagging public property and a good panty raid for the coach?? Enough said!
A hilarious action/comedy about social standings.
BULLY is a great game. Yes the controls are a bit tricky at first. But then soon you're fingers will automatically go to the right spots. The storyline is about a teen boy ''jimmy'' whose been expelled from many schools and is know dumped at the worst school in the country. He then tries to befreind and unite all the scocial class'es (Preps,Nerds,Greasers and Joques) while trying to win dates and take down the sociopath ''Gary''. GTA in a school setting (did i mention you can go of campus into town). Yes it does have a ''T'' rating but I whould not recomend it for anywone under 16. It is very influencial and almost everything they do in BULLY you could very easily do in real life. It has something in it for almost all genre lovers (sorry RTS fans) and is'nt a miss. And somehow has an epic feel to it...as epic as any RPG. P.S: It takes like 5 minutes to load the first time.
The death of a game; Endless loading screens
I can't write a proper review, as, to be honest I didn't get to play the game my hard earned money bought, but I shall tell of the experience of trying to play the game, so that others can avoid it. I was excited that the game had finally come out on PC. So, Naturally I boogied my way on down to the closest game store and bought it. Installation zipped through fine and I prepared to play. Started up the game, had a couple of black and white flickers before it went to the start menu. Hit the story button and the angsty intro played. BAM Brick wall. By brick wall, I mean a load screen, one that NEVER goes away. I seriously let it load, went and grabbed some food, came back and it was still loading and required a hard boot. I followed some tips on the internet by limiting my ram to 2gigs via msconfig and I still hit the same brick wall, that oh so terrible loading screen. I don't have a terrible computer by any standards; 2gigs of ram, Nvidia 7900 GTX running at 512mb, and 2x 2.6 processor. Crysis ran fine, why shouldn't this? I have service pack 3 and the most recent Direct X drivers too. I loaded the game on a friend's PC with a little faster specs, and he hit the same wall. So my advice to all of you in this incredibly long review, is to avoid this game for a month or so, or at least until Rockstar comes out with a patch. Don't bother calling support, either as they can't really help either.
