...good reviews as usual dave. I've been wondering for YEARS what the CV Dukes of Hazzard is like...does this game use the driving module? Because I have a PROTOTYPE game made by FOX GAMES OF THE CENTURY called "THE FALL GUY" for CV, and except for a blue car hood it looks almost identical to this, down to the jumping and cars and scenery! Only diff is that at certain points on THE FALL GUY, you enter "backlot scenery buildings" and have to move a lil' guy up the screen by SOMERSAULTING over barriers (no jumping here!)...it is hard as heck but if you get the bad guy at the top you move on to the next level. It supposedly uses the Driving controller (I don't have that) but plays as well with the joystick, using the second stick for shifting gears...I always kida liked this game. I got this along with the prototypes for YOLKS ON YOU (also by fox), VIDEO HUSTLER (based on the arcade Pool game by Konami) , SUPER SUB-ROC and SUPER CABBAGE PATCH KIDS in the mid 80's. (As I said of all systems I'm biggest on CV!) ... I thought that OMEGA RACE on CV was rather poor compared to the outstanding VIC-20 computer version (nearly IDENTICAL to the coin-op!), until I played it with the Roller controller! I thought you should've mentioned the RC makes it much more fun!

Alienblue, I just read an article on gamegrandpas.com about info on the Colecovision system and the guy said that The Dukesof Hazard uses the expansion module 2 driving controller.
