  • Summary: Set in Hazzard County, players step into the shoes of Bo and Luke Duke as they race to win prize money in order to save the local orphanage from Boss Hogg's latest crooked scheme. With the help of the ever-popular Daisy Duke, Uncle Jesse and Cooter, the good ol' boys go up against the villainous Boss Hogg, his bumbling cohorts Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane and Deputy Enos in order to win the Hazzard County Derby. Just like the television show, The Dukes of Hazzard: Return of the General Lee is filled with wild off-road action, gravity-defying stunts and adrenaline-pumping car chases. Dukes World: The game captures all the joyriding thrills and homespun action of the original television show. Dukes Celebrity: Full cast represented from the show, with voice-overs and likenesses from John Schneider (Bo Duke), Tom Wopat (Luke Duke), Catherine Bach (Daisy Duke), James Best (Roscoe P. Coltrane), Ben Jones (Cooter) and Sonny Shroyer (Enos Strate). Variety of Playable Vehicles: Players can control a variety of vehicles including the General Lee, the Black Charger, Uncle Jesse's Pickup, Daisy's Road Runner, Cooter's Tow Truck, Rosco and Enos's Police Cruisers, and Boss Hogg's limousine. Variety of Gameplay: Features a single-player Adventure Mode containing over 18 missions and an unlockable multiplayer mode that features destruction derby battles, head-to-head competition and cooperative play.

  1. The control of the vehicles is tricky to master but possible if you have the patience.
  2. A great game for the over-30 crowd, though, which is something we don't get to say often. [Dec 2004, p.108]
  3. If "Driver" married its cousin, there's a good chance the spawn of said union would look a lot like The Dukes of Hazzard: Return of the General Lee. [Oct 2004, p.129]

    The car never really feels grounded, but rather appears to float at a high rate of speed. It doesn't take much more than too much gas and too sharp a turn to start spinning, adding unnecessary aggravation to some of the longer missions.
  5. It’s not a fun game, and what little is here gets real old real fast.
  6. The whole nostalgia thing was nostalgic a few years ago. That’s a sad state of affairs, folks. Are we so void of new material, or can we spread our creative wings a little more than this?
  7. How many rednecks does it take to enjoy The Dukes of Hazzard: Return of the General Lee? Three! One to play it, one to drink his beer and one to shoot the player when he asks to be put out of his misery. Unless you’re a die-hard fan, look elsewhere.

    How does it get any worse - this is horrible! Take a classic TV series and make it so plain boring and lacking gameplay, its wrong that such games even get made! I couldnt give it 0, because there must be worse.. right? Collapse
