? Watched “The Dukes of Hazzard
?” Good. You'll find this here game sweeter'n a tall glass of lemonade on a hot summer day... or something like that. You'll find yourself racing through Hazzard County in a range of familiar vehicles, from the General Lee, to Daisy's Jeep, and even Boss Hogg's Caddy. Dukes of Hazzard: Racing for Home
is a mission-based driving game, just like Driver
, although the similarity stops there. The theme, feeling, characters and plot are pure Hazzard. In Driver
, you could be driving a stolen car, and as long as you stop at all the traffic lights, the police are likely to leave you alone. In Dukes of Hazzard: Racing for Home
, you could be rescuing Boss Hogg himself, and the police will try to arrest you. Seems like things never change here in Hazzard...
Some people might take issue with the cars’ handling, but I find it to be fairly accurate. (I've done my fair share of back-woods, dirt-road, short-cut, cross-country driving in places that the average person would not be able to discern from Hazzard County. There's a certain 'feel' for dirt roads... and it's not the feeling of complete control, either!) As far as the fun factor, I sat down to try it out and my wife pulled me off of the PlayStation several hours later... and I had no idea it had been that long. It's one of those games that simply captivate you. (That's a good thing.)
