The Dukes of Hazzard: Return of the General Lee is a mission based racing (or driving) game released on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox consoles. Return of the General Lee is based on the popular Dukes of Hazzard television show. It is the fourth game based on this show, and the only one to be made on a sixth generation console (two were released for the PlayStation and one was created for the Atari 2600 but was never officially released).

Plot[edit]

The Duke cousins must help Hazzard County's local foster home to pay off their debt in order to keep it up-and-running because Boss Hogg has raised the mortgage on it and is having the interest compounded hourly in order to build a statue of himself to be located in the town square and to build a local water reservoir on the site of the foster home's location with the help of Rosco. The player must help the Dukes complete a series of tasks in order to save the foster home before it gets shut down completely. There is also a free roam feature which allows the player to roam all of Hazzard County and enjoy the freedom of ramping various objects in order to unlock hidden objects in this game.
