PC title The Dukes of Hazzard – Racing for Home is now "gold".
a best-selling title for PSX, The Dukes of
Hazzard – Racing for Home is a fully 3D, mission-based driving game set in
the same Hazzard County made famous by the popular
’80s television series. Gamers play as Bo
or Luke Duke and take the wheel of the indestructible General Lee
or six other cars in 27 missions including saving the family farm, defending
the Duke name and rescuing Daisy — all while
eluding local law enforcement authorities
and the scheming villain Black Jack Perril.

Gamers will race through Hazzard County completing missions while collecting
power-ups, keeping the car intact, racing other
cars or just racing against the clock.
– Features the voices of original cast members Tom
Wopat (Luke Duke), James Best (Sheriff
Rosco P. Coltrane), Sonny Shroyer (Enos Strate), Ben Jones (Cooter Davenport)
and Waylon Jennings (The Balladeer). –
Players may shoot arrows loaded with dynamite in certain areas throughout the
game, allowing players to blow out the bad guys’
tires, clear the road of any obstacles and
to lose a pursuer and complete the Duke Boys’ missions. –
The game’s driving engine allows gamers to perform arcade-style stunts such as
jumping over creeks, power sliding, running road
blocks and jumping and landing on a flat
bed trailer. – Mission objectives include
saving Uncle Jesse from masked gunmen to deliver the
monthly mortgage payment to the bank on time; racing for prize money in the
Hazzard Overland Race; chasing car thieves who
have stolen the General Lee; and rescuing
Daisy from kidnappers. – Collisions,
accidents and reckless driving can cause damage to each driver’s car,
resulting in reduced performance. Players can repair their vehicles at the
of losing time or being pulled over by the law. –
Power-ups provide car enhancements, repair damage, enhance weapons, and aid in
evading the authorities. Power-ups include arrows,
high-octane nitro boosts, toolboxes, spare
tires and oil slicks. Features

"Double Zero" – the only car ever
to beat the General Lee in an overland race. –
