It seems bizarre that a retro TV series from the eighties would make it onto home console for the new millennium. Dukes of Hazzard made its first PlayStation appearance in 2000, and was welcomed by a surprisingly warm reception. Following this success, the sequel, Daisy Dukes It Out, was produced the following year. While Dukes of Hazzard 2 essentially targets older audiences with knowledge of the classic TV series, its involvement with the ever popular racing genre has caught the eyes of many young and casual gamers.

Accommodating for all audiences, Dukes of Hazzard 2 is by no means complicated, making it instantly approachable. Three typical modes of play are available, consisting of single player, multi-player and free ride. Should you choose the latter you will have the opportunity to race in a number of American locations. These environments are rendered in full 3D, although fogging is present to keep the frame rate up to scratch. However, a selection of classic vehicles from the series, all of which handle differently, means all is soon forgotten. Manoeuvring such a range of vehicles across varied terrain improves the challenge of Dukes of Hazzard 2 considerably. Racing and chasing other drivers in as many as 18 missions gives reasonable longevity to the game. Racing Daisy’s jeep freely will truly be a rewarding experience for eighties veterans.

While Dukes of Hazzard 2 may not be the most comprehensive, accurate or polished game in the genre, it offers thoughtless gameplay for anyone. It concentrates on fun, and that can’t be a bad thing.
