Return to Hazzard.

+5
The DUKES OF HAZZARD was one of my favorite television shows when I was a young kid. It had everything a kid wanted in a television show cool cars, awesome car chases, cops, bad guys, good looking country chicks, etc. Therefore, I bought this game more out of nostalgia than anything else. Nevertheless, I did enjoy playing it. The game was pretty easy except in the scenes when you are driving Young Jesse's car. Antique cars don't drive very well in real life and they drive even worse in video games. The animation isn't too bad (for a 1st generation Playstation game) and the car chase scenes spaced throughout the story are just plain awesome. This is a good game for beginning gamers, anyone who likes car chase games, and any fans of THE DUKES OF HAZZARD.

About this video game

Wiki

It looks like them Duke boys are in a heap o' trouble, and it's up to you to lend 'em a neighborly hand. Based on the long-running television series, this game is a stunt-driving bonanza featuring all your favorite characters, including Bo, Luke, and Daisy Duke, Uncle Jesse, Boss Hog, Cooter, Enos, and the memorable sheriff, Roscoe P. Coltrane. Most of the original cast members have lent their voice-acting talents to the game, including the narrator, Waylon Jennings.

The opening sequence and cutscenes between each level are 3-D-rendered dead ringers for the television show, making it worthy of consideration for collectors. Driving missions are simple and fun, with high-flying ravine jumps and dirt-road power-slides. Get behind the wheel of the General Lee (yes, it has the customized horn), Daisy's Jeep, Cooter's tow truck, and Uncle Jesse's infamous moonshine-runner, Black Tillie.

Control is not as exacting as it should be, but the CB radio banter and the silliness of it all carry the game far beyond its gameplay. --Jeff Young

Pros:

  • Good re-creation of the television series
  • Missions ripped straight from the show such as "get the mortgage to Boss Hog before the bank closes"
  • Fun stunt driving
Cons:
  • The game's challenge lies in its lack of control
  • Gameplay is very repetitive
