Itâ€™s official – nobody reads reviews any more. The Lord of the Rings: Conquest, which has been receiving middling reviews, goes in at #3 in the top 40 chart. Itâ€™s #1 in the Xbox 360 chart and #3 in the PlayStation 3 chart, which is pretty surprising given how many recent games are available for half price in the January sales.
Thereâ€™s a bit of a change in the top ten as well. Wii Fit is back on top, up from #4; last weekâ€™s #1, FIFA 09, has dropped to #4; and both Carnival: Funfair Games and Brain Training are back, in at #9 and #10 respectively. Elsewhere, Prince of Persia has taken a tumble from #20 to #38, and 100 Classic Book Collection is also down from #17 to #34. Yes, people are actually buying it.
