Here’s the latest UK gaming chart from Chart Track accompanied with some snarky comments and analysis, hurray!
Remember, the chart is based on retail sales only.
UK All-Platforms Top 10
1. LA Noire (Rockstar Games)
It has some pretty facial technology, but does its brand of interactive fiction excite you, or just have you wishing Rockstar would make something more action orientated like GTA V already? Expect our verdict soon.
2. Lego Pirates of the Caribbean (Disney Interactive)
It’s a game, based on the Lego, based on a film, based on a theme-park ride so obviously it’s brilliant.
3. Brink (Bethesda)
You can read our review of Brink here, incidentally the PC version was patched yesterday, bringing a number of fixes and tweaks, including the removal of the irritating sound bug and some fixing of the irritating notverygood server browser.
4. Zumba Fitness (505 Games)
My stepmother does Zumba, but like for real, at a special building, I think they call it a ‘gym’, weird, I don’t know why she would bother when there’s a version for the Move.
5. The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings (CD Projekt)
We’ll be bringing you a review of this very soon (you’re literally interrupting my review by reading this article, you bastard). Number 5 is a pretty high chart placing for a PC exclusive game, but there are rumours swirling about that CDProjekt have an announcement about a console version to make very soon, so watch this space (not literally this space, because nothing will happen, this post will never be edited with new news about a console version of the Witcher, so you’d be wasting your time).
6. Crysis 2 (EA)
Our review of Crysis 2 is here, you can see that we thought it was a very pretty atmospheric first person shooter and well worth a play
7. Portal 2 (EA)
What? This should be higher, either everyone bought it online, or you’re all idiots. Go and buy it if you haven’t already! We awarded Portal 2 the distinguished honour of being the very first game to receive a ‘Red Mist’ rating (that means it’s rather good).
8. FIFA 11 (EA)
Doing rather well considering the next iteration will likely be out in a few months time, although now that the football season is pretty much over and there’s no senior international competition over the summer, us football fanatics will need something to do.
9. Mortal Kombat (Warner Bros)
Our review is here, FINISH HIM!!! (not the review, the review is finished, I just haven’t played it and could think of nothing else to say).
10. Call of Duty: Black Ops (Activision)
Never heard of it, presumably some kind of fishing simulator.
