  • Excerpt: supports this surrealistic depiction of school life with its relatively freeform gameplay. I say 'relatively' because you can't just go around punching things. No, if Hopkins breaks any rules in Bullworth, as with any other school, he gets taken down and hauled to the principal's office, and is then stripped of his expendable items.

  • Excerpt: Uh-oh , some concerned parent-or-other out there is thinking, another societal outrage from Rockstar, the makers of notorious Grand Theft Auto games, right? Another raunchy, blood-soaked, over-the-top, cop-killing, shock-for-shock's sake "murder simulator," right? Wrong, and wrong.

  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is With Rockstar shifting it’s development over to the PS3 and the Xbox 360, great, epic games with a big budget on the PS2 are coming to an end. The PS2 has already had its last Gran Turismo, its last major Grand Theft Auto, and what looks like its last epic RPG, the eagerly awaited Final Fantasy XII.

  • Conclusion: The controls in Bully won't take much getting used to if you've ever played a GTA game. L1 to target, R2 to shoot, pressing select brings up your map etc. Where I thought the vehicles in the GTA games handled really well; I believe the skateboards and bikes in Bully could have used a little more attention. Maybe it's just been so long since I've played a GTA game and I've played games with better controls since.
