This is the best game I have ever played, I previously owned it on PS2 and have been meaning to buy this edition for a while. After updating to a PS3 some years ago I haven't been able to play it, so I decided to try it for PC on my laptop. The game took a while to get going as I had to download DirectX from the Windows website but eventually I managed to get it working. This edition is great and is still one of the funnest games of all time, I would recommend this game to anyone !! :)

I've played bully for a few hours and have had a lot of fun and i cant wait for bully 2. I had to get this on PC as there is no PS3 version, to be honest I've never really enjoyed any of the grand theft auto series but i have found this game very fun. This games is not similar to grand theft auto as it is set in a school and the 'police' are prefects. I've had lots of fun with this game and i really recommend it.

The Story is about a kid named Jimmy Hopkin who has been kicked out of several of his previous school, so his parents abandon him at a private school called Bullworth Academy. He's basically 'the new kid' in a school full of bullies, nerds, prefects and mean teachers.

The graphics in this game is much better than the old ps2 graphics with better facial models and other special effects. The game and graphics have a 'nostalgic' feel as this game was originally released in 2006.

There is many missions and side missions as this is an open-world game you can do what you want and when you want, you can go to class if you want the classes are just mini-games. When i first started playing i found the controls a bit awkward but you get used to it.

The whole 'playing field' is massive and has lots of content and you won't get bored going from one place to another. The game is sometimes glitchy and crashes but is OK if u save regularly.

This is the first PC game I've played and now i see it's better than console gaming. I really recommend you play this game, I've played for hours but have only finished 10 percent. I give this game a 7.75 out of 10.

This game is by far the best I've played, it takes me back to when I first had a ps2 and I love it. Also if you have windows 7 64-bit you will have to download the patch to update the game but besides that its worth the price :D

Recently I bought a Macbook, and I wanted to try out the graphics card. After hearing so much about Bully, the controversial Grand-Theft-Auto dopplegagher I decided to take the plunge, and I must say this is a brilliant game. It has a few bugs which can cause Windows 7 to crash, often before you've returned to your dorm to save but this doesn't happen too often. I've been on this game for about 4 hours over the weekend, and I'm only 4.5% of the way through!

As for gaming graphics, it depends on your system. Native resolution looks fantastic with Anti-Alias and Shadows on, smoothing the edges and casting pools of black light behind Jimmy and his other schoolmates. This game is more about helping those being bullied than being a bully yourself, so it's not as ethically off-key as people think.

Overall, a fantastic purchase. It arrived within 3 days in brand new condition.

I'm going to start this review by stating a few things. Firstly, I know that this game is quite old and obviously isn't going to run perfectly on modern machines. I am also aware that this game will actually run perfectly for some people. My computer runs Windows 7 64-bit, so if you are running the same OS then be careful when buying this game. Finally, the game arrived perfectly and everything, I have no quibbles with the seller as it's not their fault that the game barely runs on modern machines.

To start with, the DirectX installation given on the disk is actually incomplete. When you try to install the game it will try to install DirectX and simply get stuck there. I left it going for a good half hour at first before realising something was up. The solution, by the way, is to go into task manager and manually end the DirectX installer process. The installer should then move on to the next stage. It took me 3 tries to get it to work however. The installation process is incredibly slow, it took about an hour and a half for me (in comparison, Crysis 2 installed in about 10 minutes from it's disk). When you actually install the game feel free to try and play it but it has a bunch of crashing bugs and most players cannot even progress past the first cutscene. To fix this you have to download the newest patch (search for it, or look on Rockstar's website) and install that. Once fully patched up and running the game works pretty much as normal, crashing on occasion but if you save every day it won't be a problem.

The game itself is great fun. You play as a schoolchild called Jimmy Hopkins and get up to all sorts of mischief. The game isn't really about being a 'bully', as you help people out and generally fight against the bullies. I'd recommend it, but only if you have the time and patience to get it to work.

As I'm not a great fan of Sony, I waited for the PC version to come out and here it is. I had no idea that there would be a PC version of Bully. I was presuming it would be available for PS2 only and even when they released the scholarship edition I was thinking it was just a part 2 but it was never released on PS2. So I finally got to know that it was just the XBOX 360, PC and Nintendo Wii version of the original game.

Now enough of the waffle and let's get to the point.
People have been complaining that the game freezes up to the part where you meet the principal, as for me didn't experience such. In my case I use Windows 7 Professional (32bit) which works fine perfectly fine.
The game has a good story line, similar to GTA but your trapped in a school full of all sorts of people; bullies, prefects,nerds etc..

The AI is satisfactory but sometimes the guy you follow named "Gary" could be a pain in the neck as he moves like an athlete leaving you confused on where he went to.

As for the graphics, 4.5/10, which means bad! Even when changing the settings to the highest quality still proves no challenge to my Nvidia 9400 GT.

Overall I'll rate it 7/10 for having such an interesting game play! It's really fun to play but not suitable for the little one's as it's rating really deems fit!
