With more negative reviews of Duke Nukem Forever appearing (EDGEâ€™s 3/10 is one of the latest), 2Kâ€™s shoddy shooter has lost the top spot of the chart. But not to Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D as you may expect but rather Zumba Fitness.
Link rides in at a respectable #2 with 20% of all current 3DS owners making a purchase. Nintendo only has themselves to blame for it not being #1 – they started the whole fitness game trend with Wii Fit back in 2008. Well, that and the fact that Zumba is absurdly popular.
At #9 thereâ€™s another new entry in the form of Square-Enixâ€™s Dungeon Siege III. Itâ€™s not the PC version thatâ€™s been shifting loads, which is odd given the seriesâ€™ heritage, but rather the Xbox 360 version that has charted the highest. It should be pointed out though that the chart doesnâ€™t include all PC downloads. Despite what we said last week, it would appear that itâ€™s actually worth a look – the average score on Metacritic is currently 75%. Sorry about that, Square-Enix.
Also charting surprisingly highly is Alice: Madness Returns at #12. For a new IP with not that much promotion and a few mediocre reviews behind it thatâ€™s not bad going.
But we are going to have to end this weekâ€™s UK chart round up on a duff note – Child of Eden has only managed to get to #25. With Kinect sales still strong we could see it rise up next week. Even if it doesnâ€™t, itâ€™s bound to re-enter once the belated PlayStation 3 version is released in a couple of months.
