Dead Island – the UK’s #1 holiday destination

With so many new releases out last week, there was no way that this week’s UK chart was going to be a dull one. And it isn’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 there’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 hasn’t got a hope in hell.

NHL 12 slides in at a surprisingly high #12, but the last new entry in the chart hasn’t done so well – it’s Sega’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 wasn’t the best idea.
