Sonic's Schoolhouse is an edutainment game for the PC released in 1996 developed by BAP Interactive (Bruce Austin Productions) and published by Sega Entertainment and Orion Interactive.

Why it Sucks

  1. The level design looks like it was ripped from Wolfenstein 3D.
  2. Awful voice acting. Especially Sonic, who sounds nothing like his other incarnations. Note: The first two DiC Sonic cartoons had aired by the time this game was released, so why couldn't they just use Jaleel White (Sonic's voice actor in the cartoons) instead?
  3. You don't actually play as Sonic in this game, he only appears as a guide. You instead play as weird looking animals.
  4. The FMVs of the animals are bad.
  5. The mini-games are boring.
  6. It’s impossible to start the game without a CD copy of the game, even with Windows 9x computers.
    • That's how this game’s anti piracy works, however, it could confuse people who bought the game rightfully.
  7. Simply a cheap cash in onto the Sonic franchise.
  8. It runs on the Doom engine, so it can be considered a reskin.

Redeming Qualities

  1. This game fulfills it's mission of being an educational software. It is just disliked by Sonic fans and gamers in general since it is not meant to be a game beyond that.
  2. The graphics are poor sometimes, but mostly are very lively.
  3. Sonic's Sprites were reused from the cancelled game Sonic X-Treme.
  4. Contrary to the last number from "Why it Sucks", some may consider that this game tried to innovate.
