Top 10 UK PC games chart

Top 10 UK PC games chart

The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena has entered the retail PC games chart at number 8.

This week saw the retail release of The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, which has stomped into the retail PC games chart at number 8. Meanwhile, World of Warcraft: Wrath of Lich King has had a bit of a resurrection this week after taking the number 5 spot from Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor, and Fallout 3 has also had a sudden resurgence in sales, jumping back into the top 10 at number 7. Amazingly, though, Football Manager 2009 is still ruling the top of the chart, 24 weeks after its original release. You can see the retail top 20 for the week ending 25 April below:

01 Football Manager 2009 (No change)
02 Empire: Total War (No change)
03 World of Warcraft: Wrath of Lich King (Last week: 5)
04 Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II (No change)
05 Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor (Last week: 3)
06 The Sims 2: Double Deluxe (No change)
07 Fallout 3 (Last week: 15)
08 The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena (New entry)
09 Spore (No change)
10 World of Warcraft: Battle Chest (Last week: 11)

Unsurprisingly, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. has now dropped out of the chart altogether, making way for a re-entry from the retail edition of EVE Online at number 20. This week also saw veteran first person shooter Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare drop out of the top 10 to number 11, and Far Cry 2 has had a similar experience, falling from number 10 to number 14. Meanwhile, F.E.A.R. 2 Project Origin is gradually climbing up the ranks again, rising from number 18 to number 16. You can see the full retail top 20 for the week ending 25 April below:

11 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (Last week: 7)
12 The Sims 2: Apartment Life (Last week: 8)
13 Grand Theft Auto IV (No change)
14 Far Cry 2 (Last week: 10)
15 Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3 (Last week: 12)
16 F.E.A.R. 2 Project Origin (Last week: 18)
17 Crysis (Last week: 16)
18 Left 4 Dead (Last week: 17)
19 Call of Duty: World at War (Last week: 14)
20 EVE Online (Re-entry)

The Steam chart is an interesting beast this week, as it's very different from the retail top 10. The new Riddick game isn't available on Steam for a start, but this week's Steam chart saw a new entry in the form of Zeno Clash at number 5. As well as this, the Guild Wars Trilogy bundle (which includes Guild Wars, Factions and Nightfall) has also entered the chart at number 6. As usual, the number 1 spot has been taken by Steam's special offer of the week. In this case it's The Orange Box, which has risen from number 9 to number 1 after Valve knocked the price down to just £5.66 this weekend. The offer is still open now if you haven't picked up The Orange Box yet and want some bargain gaming fun. See the full Steam top 10 below:

01 The Orange Box (Last week: 9)
02 Left 4 Dead (No change)
03 Counter-Strike: Source (No change)
04 Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor (Last week: 6)
05 Zeno Clash (New entry)
06 Guild Wars Trilogy (New entry)
07 Empire: Total War (Last week: 4)
08 Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War II (Last week: 1)
09 Fallout 3 (Re-entry)
10 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (Re-entry)

Isn't it Cod:WaW not CoD:5, I thought CoD:5 was going to be a sequal to CoD:4 modern warfare. I thought they were trying to erase world at war from history kinda like what they did with the later Rocky movies and the latest one.

the new one is modern warfare 2, in fact the official website doesnt even have call of duty on it, i guess they want the modern warfare name to be a new franchise now and maybe call of duty can stick with ww2 games

Pizan is right, though, there is currently no such thing as CoD 5.

I just have one thing to add about the article, however: Football Manager 2009? Really? It CAN'T be that boring on the other side of the pond, can it?

You'd be surprised just how popular Football Manager is. Every time the England team look for a new manager, people apply based soley on their awesome Football Manager skills. It's the perfect geek/footy fan crossover game.

I've still got Opposing Fronts to complete, sheesh. Mind, I'm taking a break after completing the first CoH game, then World in Conflict, then getting through a fair amount of RA3.
