After playing for seven hours straight (and getting my ass handed to me for half the time) I have to say Rome: Total War has to be one of the greatest games ever.

Commanding the Roman legions and slaughtering entire villages..it's all possible. So is getting crushed by an elephant..

Now if only the Gauls would behave themselves and act like their great(x1000) grand children and surrender more often I would be a happy Caesar by now..

In case you have no clue what I am talking about: www.totalwar.com

Having waited for this game since Medieval, I am still in post-orgasmic bliss over my campaign.

If I ever see another Gaul in my life, however, it will be entirely too soon.

Let me guess - a small village still holds out against the invaders?

Is some fat bloke throwing menhirs at you?
I missed that this game was out - I'll have to hunt it out as I was a huge fan of the previous ones.

Well..I did manage to conquer Gaulle, and the next turn one village riotted..they suddenly have a HUGE army!
A turn later I suddenly realised that it is the town closest where Asterix & Obelix's village would be
I am sure it is coincidence, right? RIGHT?

I will send in 5 legions or so..hope that will be enough.
Probably send in some wardogs too. Those things rule..

EDIT: Later that day...ok. So I conquered the village again, had about 1000 men in there, villagers were not displeased with my occupation, next turn..it's revolting again. Now I start to believe that isn't coincidence. Next time I will burn it to the ground!
