Bully is the pinnacle of GTA clones. Then again, who could do better than the people who made the game?

Classes consist of additcting mini-games that all give you upgrades to your character like new weapons or new fighting moves. The game is set on a time-based system, so there only so much you can do in a day. At 2:00 AM, you will immediately pass out and wake up at 8:00, so you have to manage your time accoordingly.
There are six factions that make up Bullworth Academy. There are the Bullies, the Nerds, the Jocks, the Greasers, the Preppies, and the Drop-Outs; and all of them provide memorable characters and plenty of humorous stereotypes. You must do missions for all the factions, which range from egging houses or breaking windows to laying siege to the Nerds fortress and taking down their leader. Missions are plentiful and provide a lot of enjoyment.
The town of Bullworth is huge and very good-looking. Not only do you traverse the Academy, but yu eventually can explore the rest of the town from the classy Bullworth Vale to the New Coventry slums. The music is excellent and has several different varieties. Every faction has its own theme song, and plays every time you fight a member. The nerds have a techno theme song, while the Preps have a cheesy 80s pop song.
Bully is enormous and multilayered, and you will spend hourss just exploring the land. The only negative is that there could have been a lot more missions and the story is a little choppy. Besides that, Bully is a hugely entertaining game and is just so fun to play.
