Ryan Davis reviews the Xbox 360 version of Bully: Scholarship Edition and is quite impressed.
"It's rare for a game publisher to have an immediately identifiable style, but there's no mistaking Bully for anything other than a Rockstar game. The mechanical comparisons to Grand Theft Auto are fairly apt, though the tone isn't quite as nasty, and your transgressions not as deplorable–if Grand Theft Auto were a felony, Bully would be a misdemeanor. Like GTA, Bully is an engrossing experience that showcases what Rockstar does best: create an evocative caricature of the real world with dark wit, then put you in the role of a thuggish anti-hero who's unafraid of trouble. There's something thoroughly satisfying about getting to play out your prankish schoolboy fantasies, though it's the game's excellence that makes the technical shortcomings specific to Bully: Scholarship Edition on the Xbox 360 so heartbreaking."
