Bully: Scholarship Edition
Bully's finally made it to the PC, and its 'proper' name has been returned to it after misguided parents got upset and Rockstar changed it to Canis Canem Edit.
Relive your school days with Rockstar's latest adventure game. Starring Jimmy Hopkins, a tough but righteous kid who's been shoved into a boarding school by his uncaring parents, your task is to get through Bullworth Academy's first year unscathed. Many obstacles and opportunities await you, and just like your younger years, there are bullies aplenty.
The vast amount of freedom you get in Canis Canem Edit allows you to do whatever you like, as long as you're not breaking school rules. Any attempt to bully other kids, break curfew or sneak into the girls' dorm will get you reprimanded and sent to the Principal's office. Far from being vicious, the large number of missions you get to play are light-hearted and humourous, ranging from protecting innocent pupils to collecting items for the chef and stealing girls' underwear.
There's plenty to learn, love and hate in this game, as school lessons will earn you rewards, making bullies look stupid will help you get lucky with the girls, and prefects walk the halls to make sure you don't skip class or do anything out of line. And with several cliques (from dropouts to boffins and even posh preppies) to make friends with or play pranks on, you're spoilt for choice as to who to align yourself with. For the Grange Hill generation and beyond, Canis Canem Edit is what you're after if you're looking to ignite the mischievous schoolkid within you.
