Need for Speed ProStreet
powerslides into the Charts this week, but it's not enough to dislodge Assassin?s Creed
from the top spot.
Despite a 32% drop in sales and only a cool critical reception
, Ubisoft's stealthy sci-fi actioner consigns ProStreet
to Number 2. Both the previous Need for Speed
and Most Wanted
) entered the Chart at Number 1, claiming better launch week sales.
Activision's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
sees sales that are down 46% this week, the second biggest drop behind EA's Crysis
(which slips 25 places to Number 39). The drop only knocks it down one place to Number 3, however. You can find out what Cliff Caswell - who writes for the British Army's Soldier Magazine
- thought of it here on SPOnG
is EA's The Simpsons Game
, which also drops one place, settling at Number 4.Dr Kawashima's Brain Training
benefits from the DS's record-breaking hardware week
, with the title selling more copies in a single week than it ever has before and climbing a spot to Number 5.
In spite of issues with online play
, Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer 2008
is a bit of a Top 10 success story, seeing the biggest Top 10 climb - up from Number 9 to Number 6.
Sales of Super Mario Galaxy
continue to disappoint, however, with Nintendo's flagship platformer slipping two places to Number 7. Find out what SPOnG thinks of the Ninty Wii flagship title right here
The only new entry to join Need for Speed ProStreet
in the Top 10 is Activision's Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock
, which just makes it in at Number 10.
Other new Chart entries are Microsoft's 360 exclusive, Mass Effect
, which lands at Number 12, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games
, which has an astonishingly underwhelming start at Number 14; and Eidos' Kane & Lynch
(a review of which can be found here
) at Number 16.
Perhaps the most disappointing new entry, given the level of hype it's received, is Epic and Midway's Unreal Tournament 3
, which makes its PC debut all the way down at Number 40.
Next week, watch out for EA's Medal of Honour: Heroes 2
, Midway's Blacksite: Area 51
, Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles
and SEGA's The Golden Compass
