Rockstar has finally released a trailer of its controversial PS2 school game, Bully, and it comes across as a humorous and tongue-in-cheek adventure game rather than the epitome of everything evil a lot of people are trying to make it out to be.

Rockstar's Vancover studio has been busy completing the game, which casts you as a brawny schoolboy at school-of-hard-knocks-to-the-head, Bullworth Academy. When we asked if Bully has undergone any changes in response to the controversy, in which

This fresh set of Canis Canem Edit images gives you a perfect peek at the game's in-class minigames, including shots from the English, gym, shop class, photography, art and chemistry lessons you'll be undertaking when the game launches on 26 October.
