Andrew Eisen noticed that they gave Bully a KidScore. Explanations below are not specific to Bully, but are instead from their "how to read the color coding" page.

[I]Summary: Despite statements to the contrary, this game glorifies bullying and other anti-social behavior. In addition it portrays teachers as vulgar, stupid, and irresponsible. We believe that these factors contribute greatly to the “Culture of Disrespect” problem prevalent in our schools.[/I]

[B]Up next, NIMF gives [URL=http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0052676/]"Carry On Teacher"[/URL] an "R" rating...[/B] /sarcasm

[COLOR=Red]Violence[/COLOR] - Actions intended to hurt someone or something. Things such as, but not limited to biting, kicking, throwing things, punching, using weapons, animated violence, and all the way to extremely graphic violence such as sexual violence would be included.
[COLOR=Red]Violence Portrayal[/COLOR] - If there is violence, this category measures how it is portrayed. A green light means it is necessary for the story and isn't exaggerated. A yellow or red light means the violence is unnecessary exaggerated, trivialized, and/or glamorized. There's a big difference, for example, in the portrayal of violence in a film about the death of Christ and violence in a film such as Die Hard.
[COLOR=Yellow]Fear[/COLOR] - Parents want to know if a media product has the ability to cause fear in children. Examples would include any scenes which could cause fear in the viewer, such as gory scenes, exaggerated scenes of pain and suffering, and other scary scenes.
[COLOR=Red]Illegal/Harmful[/COLOR] - Does the media product encourage or display behavior which is illegal, harmful, or dangerous if imitated by children? A scene in the movie The Program, for example, showed high school boys lying in the middle of a busy highway to prove their bravery. In the following week there were several deaths from teenagers imitating the movie.
[COLOR=Red]Language[/COLOR] - This category captures name calling, disrespectfulness, ethnic/gender slurs, crude or obscene language as well as sexual innuendo or sexually explicit dialogue.
[COLOR=Yellow]Nudity[/COLOR] - Examples include provocative and/or revealing dress as well as partial or full nudity.
[COLOR=Yellow]Sex[/COLOR] - Sexual dialogue is picked up in the language category. This category deals with sexual behavior.
