GameSpy writes: Bully: Scholarship Edition is a re-release of one of the best PlayStation 2 games of 2006. Disappointingly, not everything went smoothly in the transition to the Xbox 360. What the game has gained in a year of graphical polish and mild renovation it has lost in disappointing technical misfires. Don't let that discourage you, though. Rockstar is best known for Grand Theft Auto, but Bully may well be its crowning achievement.
Visually, Bully: Scholarship Edition has been renovated for the Xbox 360, using a new graphics engine that is a mild improvement over what you'll find in the original PS2 version, and the accompanying release on the Nintendo Wii. It isn't cutting-edge by any means, and the real advantage is that you'll get a resolution that won't cause your eyes to water when played on a high-definition television set.
On the other hand, with these new visuals come all-new technical flaws, the most jarring of which is an unreliable frame-rate that results in a frequent stuttering effect. It's a case of taking a step forward but two steps back.
