One of my favorite games of all time!

Graphics- The graphics are an improvement over the PS2 for sure. PS2's graphics are still much better then the Wii's though. Everything looks fairly nice and even some of the character models look better (Scholarship Edition made girls look hotter, etc). The only problem is in some cut scenes or gameplay interactions with characters when they speak their mouths hardly move at all which looks ridiculous and gets annoying.
Gameplay- The gameplay is easy to learn and fun.
Story- Jimmy Hopkins a 15 year old teenager has been expelled from several other schools across the country and lives a troubled life with his Mom having been married 3 or 4 times and is now off on her new honeymoon with an old rich guy. Jimmy's Mom and new Step dad go off on a cruise for their honeymoon and drop Jimmy off at Bullworth the toughest and worst school in the country. This is Jimmy's last chance. He can't get expelled again or it's Juvy. Along with meeting a backstabbing sociopath named Gary Smith, an innocent nice smart shy guy named Pete Kowalski, and a townie Zoe who becomes Jimmy's love interest towards the end of the game, Jimmy must learn to deal with the school's various cliques including Bullies, Nerds, Greasers, Preppies, Jocks, and the Townies who live in the towns outside of the school Jimmy tries to conquers each clique by beating them and their leaders up to the point of surrendering and he becomes the new boss and with that tries to tame each clique so they don't bully anymore. A really well done plot I enjoyed playing it.
Replayability- With the added on classes, and missions you will be playing this long then the original version.
Fun Factor- There are plenty of things to do like kiss girls, pick fights, save the nerd, bully the nerd, bully anyone, buy clothes, get haircuts, change hair styles, do errands, fight for new save locations, learn new fighting moves and combos from an old drunken hobo among others things. There is more then plenty to do.
Overall- Overall Bully is a great game and Bully Scholarship Edition is even better. Worth every dollar you pay for!
