Tomb Raider retains UK All Format Gaming Chart crown

Tomb Raider has retained top spot in the UK All Format Gaming Chart for a second week, seeing off competition from a selection of new entries.

Despite a 72 per cent drop in week-on-week sales, the Square Enix published Tomb Raider has seen the reinvigorated Lara Croft remain the UK’s highest selling game for the second week, with the following three chart positions taken up by new entries.

Entering the charts in second position, Sony’s God of War: Ascension has seen off competition from fellow newcomers Starcraft 2 and Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, with the Activision Blizzard and City Interactive titles debuting in third and fourth spots respectively.

With Sim City dropping three places to make way for the trio of new entries, the latest offering in the much loved EA franchise slumped from second to fifth in the UK All Format Gaming Chart on the back of a 50 per cent week-on-week sales decline.

The first in a flurry of EA published titles to make the gaming chart top 10 for the week ending March 16, Sim City is backed up by FIFA 13 in sixth and Crysis 3, having suffered a 42 per cent decline in sales, in eighth. Splitting the EA collective, Ubisoft’s Far Cry 3 jumped one place to seventh.

Rounding out the week’s top ten, Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 lined up in ninth ahead of yet another EA title, The Sims 3: University life, down a whopping six places to tenth.
