10, Flawless. I have no complaints of any kind about the game other than initial load time, but that's only once per play session. It is pure joy for me after 8 hours of play. I can't think of anything to single as special because it all just comes together very well.

FUR is a big nightclub in DC, so these threads always throw me off for a second. 

Bully is an 8 for me.
+ Novel setting and concept
+ Minigames are fun and rewarding for the most part
+ Having the entire town explorable was more than I expected
+ Art is all nicely stylized.  You forget you're playing a PS2 game.
+ The music changes depending on who's chasing you.  I love this.
+ Great writing, voice acting, cutscene design, and mission design for the most part

- Controls I still feel are a step back from GTA.
- Collection stuff feels arbitrary and tacked on (rubber bands, G&G cards).
- Feels like they could've used more of the town in missions.  I never went to the retirement home, for instance.
- You're sometimes given a choice of missions but you can't tell a damn thing about them other than their names.
- Photography isn't that fun, the classes can take a long time, and the rewards suck.

I gave it a 9.  Some of the features feel a bit shallow after awhile, but overall there's so much to do and tons of variety that it doesn't get boring.  It's also a nice touch to see Jimmy's current choice of wardrobe in cut scenes.  Depending on what he's wearing makes the scene a laugh riot.

Totally worth my money.

I gave it a 10.  It's some of the best fun I've had in gaming and I personally favor it over any of the GTA games.  Could actually be my choice for game of the year.

I havent given it enough time to vote in the poll, but the little I played has been 100x better than any GTA game I have ever played.

I like it 100x better than GTA:SA, but I dont know about 3 and VC.  So far I give Bully a 9, a lot of fun!

I just completed the game and thought it was pretty fun; if not for the camera sometimes messing up I might have given it a 10, but as it stands, a 9.
