Bully: Scholarship Edition Review

  • Conclusion: It's by no means perfect, as there are certainly some areas in which Scholarship Edition could have been significantly improved, but I personally feel that this version of the game is superior to the version released two years prior. That said, while Scholarship Edition is a better game, the extra content and much-improved controls simply don't warrant a fifty-dollar purchase from somebody who's already played the PS2 version of Bully.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: A lovable game, Bully is now made even better with some thoughtful new additions. For anyone who missed the PS2 version, this scholarly game design is a pretty essential example of how a slightly more light-hearted, story-driven and mission-based adventure should be done.

  • Excerpt: The big buzz when the game originally came out was about the fact that Jimmy could kiss boys, making the anti-homosexual groups come out and condemn the game, and teachers arguing that this game glorified the bully lifestyle. With the first “problem” you as a player can decide whether you want to kiss boys or not, it isn’t a requirement. The second problem is the usual type of outcry when something as creative as this game comes out.
  • Pros: The Wii controls for the most part, especially in Biology and Music class, The story is top notch, If you missed the game originally, you have another chance, The voicework is top notch
  • Cons: The nunchuck controls not registering consecutively when fighting, Aiming with the slingshot via the remote can be tough, The loading times are still annoying

  • Summary: Jimmy Hopkins is not your standard video game hero. In Bully: Scholarship Edition, he breaks a drunken schoolteacher out of an asylum, helps the lunch lady drug her date, steals panties from the girls' dorm, and takes pictures of snotty kids sitting on a homeless Santa's lap. But this is not your typical game, and 15 months after its release on the PlayStation 2, Bully's gameplay stands tall and proud.
  • Pros: Matchless, amazingly crafted gameworld, Fantastic, funny dialogue, Great voice acting and overall sound design, Solid extra content
  • Cons: Some of the motion controls don't work out that well, Inconsistent frame rate and other minor annoyances

Bully: Scholarship Edition [Wii] Review

WiiDS.co.uk
12 January 2009
  • Excerpt: Bully: Scholarship Edition is a “GTA” style game from the same makers; Rockstar. Instead of setting the main character as a hardened street criminal, you are a troublesome teen by the name of Jimmy Hopkins, trying to establish yourself at a new school. Apart from a different setting, the premise of the game is pretty much the same. Work your way through various missions offered from various groups/gangs.
  • Pros: New missions, classes etc, The alternation of attending class and missions, Concept of the game
  • Cons: Too easy to complete, Not enough variation in missions/quests, Not much replay value after completion

  • Summary: Deux ans après la version PS2 et six mois après sa sortie sur Xbox 360 et Wii, le GTA-like Bully retourne au lycée, mais cette fois sur PC. Jimmy Hopkins, le gamin intenable, va-t-il réussir le test ? Le temps passé a-t-il été mis à profit pour améliorer le jeu ?
  • Pros: Liberté d'action, Scénario très prenant, Personnages attachants, Les combats à la WiiMote, La mission du Père-Noël alcoolique !, Les nouvelles matières
  • Cons: Les temps de chargement toujours présents, Trop de combats dans les couloirs de l'école, La progression plutôt simple, La version Xbox 360 pas assez convaincante, Peu de nouveautés
