Bully Trophy Guide. Difficulty: ** A third-person action adventure set in an open world, similar in gameplay to the Grand Theft Auto series, though involving life at a boarding school. The Platinum is fairly average in difficulty and time required, with no missable trophies.
Bully is a third-person action adventure set in an open world, originally released on the PlayStation 2 in 2006, then revamped with trophy support for the PlayStation 4 in 2016. Set in the fictional town of Bullworth, the player-character is a school student who navigates around either on-foot, by skateboard, bicycle, scooter, or go-kart, while attending classes which involve mini-games, complete missions, and experience activities around the city. The game has been compared to Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto series, though in a high school environment.
James "Jimmy" Hopkins is dropped off at Bullworth Academy by his mother and stepfather, where he is given a tour of his new boarding school. Though he starts at the bottom of the social hierarchy and is frequently the target of bullies, he must raise his rank to earn the respect of his peers, all while passing his classes.
The original Bully on the PlayStation 2 received positive reviews with an average score of 83%, praised for its snappy dialogue, engaging characters, and overall fun.
While a few mini-games may be a bit tricky, the game overall - and the road to the Platinum - is fairly average and only takes some time. The game is open-world, and no trophies are missable. Just play through the story, find the collectibles, perform some miscellaneous activities, and the Platinum is yours.
Expect roughly 20-25 hours for the Platinum, depending on whether or not you take your time.
There are no missable trophies to worry about, so feel free to begin by playing through the five chapters of the main story. There are a total of 63 main missions, and 16 side missions. Not all the side missions require completion, though some are connected with earning decorations for the Kleptomania trophy.
During your playthrough, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, is the Green Thumbs Up trophy, which requires you to pick 50 flowers. Since you can only carry 10 at a time, you'll need to get rid of some by gifting them to a senior girl - which you won't be able to do after you complete class Art 5. You'll still be able to gift flowers to boys after completing Art 5, but there are far less opportunities. So, we recommend unlocking the Green Thumbs Up trophy before completing class Art 5.
Also, the Rich Kid Blues trophy requires you to have $1,000 in your pocket at once. It's a good idea to save up and unlock this trophy before you start spending money.
Finally, there's the Skate Pro trophy for travelling 50,000 meters on a skateboard, the Marathon trophy for travelling 100,000 meters on foot, The Wheel Deal trophy for performing 200 wheelies on a bike, and the Tour De Bullworth trophy for travelling 100 km on a bike. Just keep this in mind while playing. So once you earn the Skate Pro trophy, for example, switch up to the bike, or vice-versa.
After you've completed the main missions and all the side-missions you plan to do, it's simply a matter of mopping-up all the miscellaneous trophies left. This will probably include getting a total of 160,000 trouble points for the Problem Child trophy, and some of the pranks-related trophies.
