While sales of Codemasters’ F1 2018 were down over last years instalment, it has still sold well enough to take the UK chart top spot.

This means Crash Bandicoot’s reign is now at an end – last week the box breaking marsupial celebrated an 8th week at no.1.

Another new face enters at #2 – SEGA’s Shenmue I and II collection, which we reviewed yesterday. It also takes #2 in the PS4 chart and #4 in the Xbox One chart.

Crash Bandicoot is now at #3. GTA V and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe drop to #4 and #5.

God of War remains at #6 for another week. LEGO The Incredibles and Call of Duty: WWII both continue to slide, falling to #7 and #8.

At #9 it’s Ubisoft’s The Crew 2, up from #25. FIFA 18 has seen a sales surge too, going from #29 to #10. We spotted it for a mere £4.99 in Sainsbury’s over the weekend.

The recently discounted State of Decay 2 and Forza Motorsport 7 are back in the top 40 this week too, re-entering at #29 and #32.

Expect to see lots of new titles in the chart next Monday. An all-new top five, quite possibly – PES 2019, Monster Hunter Generations, Yakuza Kiwami 2, Strange Brigade and Naruto to Boruto are all due out this week.
