GameTap: Bully: Scholarship Edition Preview

Giancarlo Varanini of GameTap writes: Since the original Bully came out near the end of the PlayStation 2's life cycle, some gamers may have passed on it in favor of waiting for a potential appearance on the newest platforms, even though the game was almost universally well received. Those people are going to be rewarded for their patience with Bully: Scholarship Edition, which is coming to both the Nintendo Wii and the Xbox 360 with some new features not found in the original version of the game.

The most obvious of these new features are the improved graphics. Both versions of Bully: Scholarship Edition sport better visuals than their PS2 counterpart. The Wii version has some cleaner textures here and there as well as some enhanced reflecting effects as shown on the floors inside Bullworth Academy. For obvious reasons, the changes on the 360 are far more dramatic. Everything--from the school grounds to the individual character models--looks incredibly crisp and clean, bringing an extra bit of life to Bully's already colorful and vibrant world.

Rockstar has given you every reason to pick up the Wii or Xbox 360 version of Bully if you're still on the fence about whether or not to get it--but if you're not quite convinced, then keep an eye out for our review when the game hits store shelves on March 4.
