UK Game ChartPlatforms: All
Despite dividing opinion across the critical world Dead Island has brought the zombie apocalypse to the charts this week as it makes its showing straight in at number one. The first person survival RPG ignited interest with one of the best game trailers in recent memory but reviews have pointed out that it isn't the masterpiece that it had the potential to be, look out for The Digital Fix's take on the game this week.
Last weeks number one, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, slips to fifth place but is still performing well against the multitude of new releases. Warhammer 40K: Space Marine storms into second place which is great news for the franchise and bodes well for future installments in the Warhammer universe, a rare example of a licence being handled well. This pushes Driver:San Francisco into third place with fourth being held by new entry and PS3 exclusive Resistance 3, the only other new entry this week has been Star Fox 64 3D on the 3DS.
Unlike the zombies infestation in Dead Island the charts have been given a new lease of life, and as we move ever onwards into silly season there will be more changes in the up and coming weeks. Hold on tight!
