    At least the game thoughfully provides a Yee Haw button for sharing its thrills...not that it'll get much use. [Holiday 2004, p.87]

    The game is little more than an excuse to take a tour through Hazzard County in 3D and drive recklessly. This would almost be appealing, but problems quickly pop up here, there, and, you guessed it, everywhere. The biggest problem is with the General Lee's control and it goes on from there.

    You rarely get a sense of speed or weight while driving, and the controls are so awkward, the slightest steering overcorrection results in a spinout. [Dec 2004, p.83]

    The only thing the Dukes game has in common with it is the freeroaming nature of locating missions. Once you do acquire a mission you will find that they are of a make-work nature. The entire game is linear and the sense of freedom is only an illusion.

    It is fun to go around doing some crazy stunts, but it can get old after a while. Unfortunately that's the only fun part of the game.

    It feels like every single car in the game is driving around on bald tires. No matter what you do, you'll be sliding off the road.
  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.
  8. Don't get us wrong, we love jumping cars and smashing through barn doors, but the game is desperately in need of something else. A little thing called gameplay.

    At 1st I was really impressed. The cut scene graphics are excellent. All the classic characters look like their real life counterparts. The At 1st I was really impressed. The cut scene graphics are excellent. All the classic characters look like their real life counterparts. The story begins a lot like a show would. But the gameplay here is super uninspired. You'd think that considering the goals are so basic, it'd be at least well done. But no, sometimes you'll find yourself unsure of where to go or what to do. There's a guide that points you where to go, but it frequently doesn't work properly. I also dislike how the car handles, which is pretty major. Full Review »
