Over-looked Gem of a Game
1 April 2008 | by ElijahCSkuggsSee all my reviews

Don't you hate putting off games? You know it'll probably be a blast to play, but maybe you're too busy with other games or maybe you're strapped for cash. Or maybe you're just too hesitant when buying games. Bully, for me, is one game I put off since it first came out. And, after playing it, I kick myself for not buying as soon as it came out. But hey, at least I'm playing and loving the hell out of it now.

Bully, if you don't know is made by Rockstar, the fantastic people that gave us the Grand Theft Auto games. Once again they have brought us another open world game to have fun with and explore. This time instead of a gangster type, you're now a hooligan kid at a private school. The idea itself is really interesting, but since it's so different from GTA, you kinda look at it differently. Well, I did anyways. But don't worry the game has tons of fun things to do. Not only are you at a school, you also have the ability to leave the school and venture in the neighboring towns. It's something most gamers don't know about Bully, it's a huge world. With so many areas to explore and so many activities to partake, this game ends up being a very deep and extensive gaming experience. That is, if you ended up falling in love with it like myself.

The game has great humor, from the geeks who spend their days at the library, to the incredibly horny and ugly lunchlady. There are laughs at every single corner in Bully. Like I said above on how deep it is, it has Jimmy, the star of Bully, participating in classes (chemistry, English, art etc.), going to the Carnival (to play games, ride rides), go on dates, fight constantly (with some nice striking and ground fighting combos), mow lawns, ride skateboards, smash pumpkins, pull fire-alarms, squeeze girl's bums....the list goes on and on. It's a Rockstar game, what'd ya expect.

Bully is one of those games you look at and then pass on for one reason or another. But I'm telling you, Bully is a very fun game. The production is great, the gameplay is great, almost everything about this game is great. You may have small issues with how the game begins, which some say slow (I'd disagree), or the graphics (since we are now onto the new generation), but it's really just a fantastic game that is over-looked. It makes perfect sense why they would try again to sell the game anew and refreshed on the 360 and Wii. If anyone reading this enjoys open-world games ala GTA, Bully is something you need to experience.
