Sliding down stair rails. Bunny-hopping over cars. Attending (and bunking) class. Winning the hearts of girls from every clique. Learning how to fight from a homeless bum behind the school bus. Achieving school domination and having complete power over staff and students alike; just a typical school year.
The first I was aware of Bully as a kid was in the build-up to launch. The game took a huge hit of controversy in the UK due to the ignorant assumption the game promoted bullying and starred you, the titular Bully. Obviously not the case, the game had the misfortune of being renamed Canis Canem Edit, translated as Dog Eat Dog, and even led to retailers not stocking it. Several years on, the game was re-released on modern consoles as a Scholarship Edition, mostly the same but sporting a new engine, extra missions, characters, lessons and other tweaks. Having grossly enjoyed myself the first time around, I decided to see if maturity affected my enjoyment at all.
