Crytek’s science fiction-based first-person shooter Crysis 2 has proved just how popular it really is recently, by topping the UK all-formats games chart for the 2nd week in a row. This of course means that the hotly-tipped newcomer Shift 2: Unleashed unfortunately didn’t make it to No. 1.
In fact, according to a recent article by Robert Purchese over at eurogamer.net, Shift 2: Unleashed – aka Need for Speed: Shift 2 Unleashed – ended its first week in fourth place. The new entry that quite surprisingly took the second spot however was the Zumba Fitness: Join the Party game for the Nintendo Wii.
This of course means that last week’s No. 2, LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars was knocked down to third place. Meanwhile, the much-awaited MotorStorm: Apocalypse game, which was another of last week’s new releases, ended its first week way down the charts in a rather disappointing 17th place.
Kaos Studios’ Homefront dropped down to fifth place, while Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters and WWE All Stars both debuted at No. 6 and 7 respectively. The three games that rounded off the top 10 were FIFA 11, Pokémon White and Art Academy.
