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. See for yourself by peeking under the Movies tab above.
