Gaming Age writes: "Jimmy Hopkins may not have advanced in school in the year and a half since Bully was released for the Playstation 2, but the new Scholarship Edition of the game for Wii and Xbox 360 has. In case you're not familiar with the original release, your main character is Jimmy Hopkins and your playground is literally a playground. Jimmy attends a boarding school and his hobbies are typical of young people today: stealing lunch money, incapacitating authority figures, treating fellow students like the indentured slaves they are and, of course, getting the girl. Bully promises to bring the same freedom of Grand Theft Auto to the unfriendly confines of high school, with just as much to do and just as few moral limitations.
Bully is a great game that suffers from technical issues. The atmosphere, story and freedom of choice for the player is set on an impressive foundation of character that will either remind you of your misspent youth or childhood traumas long suppressed. It can be funny and disturbing while being challenging and clever. It's just too bad more care wasn't taken in making it available on a new platform."
