Wheelie good news

UK Charts

Ubisoft’s gamble to publish The Wheelman has paid off – it skids into #11 in this week’s top 40 chart. It’s also a fitting game to play this time of year as Vin Diesel’s head looks just like an Easter egg. Resident Evil 5 stays put at #1, while bizarrely both Call of Duty 4 and Call of Duty 5 have crept back into the top 10 at #7 and #9 respectively.

The Wii version of Pro Evolution 2009 helps it rise up to #22 while Afro Samuari makes a surprise appearance at #33. Surprising because it’s not meant to be that great and the movie hasn’t even been released over here yet. Speaking of movies, Monsters Vs Aliens fails to make it into the top 40 at all. That’ll no doubt change soon though.

In the PlayStation 2 chart Koei’s insanely titled Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis makes in entry at #11. It’s probably quite a good game to buy now and keep hold of – obscure RPGs like this are usually worth loads in the future.
