With so many new releases out last week, there was no way that this weekâ€™s UK chart was going to be a dull one. And it isnâ€™t.
Even with mixed reviews – everything from a 3/10 in EDGE to 8.0 from IGN – Dead Island manages to take the top spot. Below that at #2 thereâ€™s the TV-advertised Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, which has managed to do better than the PS3-exclusive Resistance 3 in at #4, with Driver: San Francisco at #3.
Star Fox 64 3D barrel rolls in at a respectable #9, disproving the fact that the system hasnâ€™t got a hope in hell.
NHL 12 slides in at a surprisingly high #12, but the last new entry in the chart hasnâ€™t done so well – itâ€™s Segaâ€™s Rise of Nightmares at #37. That has still sold better than El Shaddai has though, which makes #27 in the PlayStation 3 chart and #37 in the Xbox 360 chart. Perhaps releasing it against a swarm of anticipated shooters wasnâ€™t the best idea.
