Brink Tops UK Games Chart despite disappointing reviews

For those of you that were looking forward to the game Brink, you would have been disappointed with the review round up we brought you last week. It seems that a lot of reputable game critics were not impressed with the much hyped game.

Despite these low scoring reviews it appears gamers that were interested in buying Brink were undeterred and went out and bought it anyway. It enters the UK games chart for all formats at number one.

The game that makes way for the shooter is Zumba Fitness, which continues to sell well and holds on to the number three spot. Previous top-spot holder Portal 2, which was number one for two weeks before that, slips to fourth.

Lego Pirates of the Caribbean was the second highest selling game last week and debuts in the chart at number two. Check out the full UK chart at CVG where you will find that other popular games such as FIFA 2011 and Call of Duty: Black Ops still remain in the top ten.
