For Christians, this racing game does incorporate some violence (Luke can shoot dynamite arrows and you can crash your car into others). But not much bad language ("Dang it" may be the worst). The ladies (Missy & Daisy) are wearing skimpy outfits, but about the same if you watched the classic TV show.

Thankfully, Bo, Luke, Waylon Jennings & Daisy's voice are the genuine article. Others may be as well. (In the first Dukes game, Bo's voice was noticeably done by a stand-in).

Shepherd's Staff rates this game as Acceptable Shepherd's Staff rates "Dukes of Hazzard: Daisy Dukes It Out" as Acceptable.

In single player mode, you complete missions. After completing each mission, you are rewarded with a mini-movie that furthers the story line and leads into the next mission. This gives the feeling of being in a real Dukes of Hazzard TV episode. And you aren't just limited to driving the General Lee for each mission! There is quite a variety of vehicles you get to control including Daisy's Jeep named Dixie and Uncle Jesse's truck.

There are 18 Missions. Enough to keep you busy for hours. And some of them are easy while others are downright frustrating. Like Uncle Jesse's truck leaking oil and you needing to pick up some as you are driving along at 80+ miles per hour!

Thankfully, there is a save function although you have to return to the main menu to take advantage of it. Real-life physics is thrown out the door as the General Lee can take a LOT of damage before it stops. Wait, that's just like the television show!

For two-player, you have a variety of choices like demolition derby, racing, or jug run.

All in all, the graphic engine is much improved over the first game. There is enough storytelling to keep you engaged. Before long, you and the kids will be saying “Yee-haw” as you do your jumps.

When playing single player, be sure to save after each time you complete a mission! Go back to the Main Menu and save (Options->Memory Card->Save).

In conclusion, an enjoyable game acceptable for Christian families. Make it more fun by playing it as a family.

Year of Release—2000
