* BrokenBase: Whether or not there should be a second game has caused a divide among fans who think that the game re-imagined or continuing off where the game left off would be a very good idea. On the other hand, some people view the game as a ToughActToFollow and that it would be hard to fit the timeless plotline of the game into a modern-day viewpoint, or those who don't want to see a rehash of the first game's plot-line and characters.



* ParanoiaFuel: The school's basement outside mission tasks. It is devoid of live, with flickering lights, a broken elevator that still sparks, and a radio playing out of nowhere. On some rare occasions, it's even possible to see Ivan sleep down there.

Added DiffLines:

* ToughActToFollow: Among fans of the game, it is generally agreed that the game's timeless setting, storyline about how being a bully isn't worth it, and characters would make it hard to pull off a sequel to the game, particularly after the rise of cyber-bullying and technology in the late Noughties.

* ScrappyMechanic: A commonly criticized feature is the fact that Jimmy can't get a haircut and wear a hat at the same time, or else it will revert back to his default shave. This wouldn't be so much of an issue to players if it wasn't that [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas Rockstar's last game with customization]] averted this completely.

** The music class minigame from the Scholarship Edition. It's pretty tough on the PC version, since some of the notes require both keys to be hit simultaneously, resulting in some misses, but it's damn near impossible on the Xbox 360 version, since the keys ''don't even register'' on some of the later classes.

* RetroactiveRecognition: Baron Vaughn, Tad's voice actor, was virtually unknown at this time of the game. However, he's become much more known nowadays for his stand-up comedy appearances on many live television shows, and for starring in an update series of ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''.

** Parker Ogilvie gets it, mainly because he's basically a repressed nice guy by nature. Fanfic, however, forgets about the "repressed" part a lot, as well as the not understanding why he can't buy friends and love thing.

** The Playstation 4 version is another downplayed version. Its primary issue is a poor framerate, despite the PS4 being more than capable of handling it. While it's somewhat understandable due to essentially being a PS2 emulator instead of an enhanced version, it's still disappointing.

* TheScrappy:
** While not exactly a force of pure evil, Lola is still one of the least likable characters by far. She takes advantage of every guy around her and the only times she's ever nice to anyone, including Jimmy, it's just to gauge how she can exploit them and will immediately turn nasty if she can't. For perspective, even the AlphaBitch cheer captain Mandy and RichBitch preppy girl Pinky are given some moments to show [[PetTheDog there's more to them than their initial characterization suggests]], but Lola's characterization pretty much starts and stops at "self-absorbed, manipulative tramp".

* AntiClimaxBoss: [[spoiler: Gary]] ends up being a bit of a pushover. This wouldn't be a problem if he weren't the final boss of the game and every other boss before him had more challenge to them.
