5.0 out of 5 stars Delightfully Satisfied, 25 Jun 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Bully: Scholarship Edition (Wii) (Video Game)
After reading many reviews of this game I decided to buy it and I'm glad I did!

Primarily I was a little worried about the difficulty level of the missions, and admittedly there were a few infuriatingly tricky ones that had me grinding my teeth and gripping the Wii remote and nunchuck at an almost crushing grip, but with a few attempts and the small guidance of online tips I managed to continue with the game. The graphics aren't the lifelike modelling that you get nowadays with games like "Assassin's Creed" but that said they were not disappointing, with very clear visual content and responsive believable movement.
I had been told a few times that this game was "like Grand Theft Auto but for schools" and, as it is made by the same people, others have quickly judged it as such stating that it encourages bullying in schools. However, as you progress with Jimmy's story, a 15-year-old boy "just trying to fit in", you quickly realise that the overall message is to combat and ultimately discourage bullying. The game is set out into about 5 chapters, each chapter in which you win over a faction/cliqué leader of the schools (such as preps, jocks, nerds, and the greasers) before finally facing an unlikely antagonist who has set out to destroy your social life. I particularly enjoyed the rewards and bonuses gained from attending class, such as bike upgrades being unlocked when you complete mechanics classes.

Overall, I thought this was a thoroughly charming game and I would thoroughly recommend it :)
