I left my chart in San Francisco

If you purchased Deus Ex: Human Revolution and/or Driver: San Francisco last week then give yourself a pat on the back – you’ve helped stop Zumba Fitness from flexing back up to the top of the chart. This week it’s at #3, under Eidos Montreal’s masterpiece and Ubisoft Refections’ racer.

There’s another entry in the top 10 too – Madden NFL 12 at a surprisingly high #6.

Codemaster’s Bodycount hasn’t had a very good launch week though, arriving at a lowly #36. There’s no need to shed a tear – reviews have mostly been below average, including a 4/10 from Eurogamer. It’s not a bad game it would seem; just one that feels very dated when compared to other shoot ’em ups around.

The football flavoured DS RPG Inazuma Eleven has had a slighty better week rising up from #39 to #34. Xenoblade Chronicles has done the opposite though and fallen from #27 to #37.

In the single formats Championship Racer: G1 Jockey & Gallop Racer makes #26 in the Wii chart and #34 in the Xbox 360 chart. Then in the DS chart the misleadingly titled 1001 Touch Games – which doesn’t have 1001 games on, but rather a handful of games with 50 or so levels each – enters at a shockingly high #9.
