You know that a PC game is selling by the truckload in the UK if it can knock the country's beloved Football Manager off the top spot, but this isn't easy. F.E.A.R. 2 had a sniff around the number 1 slot last week, and couldn't quite make it, but Relic's latest ork-slaughtering RTS, Dawn of War II, has stormed straight in at number 1, barging through any obstacles in its path. This has had the knock-on effect of pushing last week's top three games down a peg. Meanwhile, Spore has re-entered the top 10 at number 8. You can see the retail top 10 for the week ending 21 February below:

01 Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II (New entry)
02 Football Manager 2009 (Last week: 1)
03 F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin (Last week: 2)
04 World of Warcraft: Wrath of Lich King (Last week: 3)
05 The Sims 2: Double Deluxe (Last week: 7)
06 The Sims 2: Apartment Life (No change)
07 Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3(Last week: 4)
08 Spore (Last week: 11)
09 Grand Theft Auto IV (Last week: 5)
10 Call of Duty: World at War (Last week: 8)

Peering down into the depths of the chart shows that CSI: New York has now dropped out of the top 10 this week, while Sega's Football Manager Live has similarly dropped down to number 14. Meanwhile, there's a new entry in the form of Ascaron's new fantasy RPG, King's Bounty: The Legend at number 19, and Crysis has re-entered the chart at the bottom. ou can see the retail top 20 for the week ending 21 February below:

Now that Dawn of War II has been officially released, the game has now jumped up to number 1 in the Steam chart as well - the pre-order for the game was at number 3 this time last week. Amazingly, this is the first time that a game has knocked Left 4 Dead off the Steam top spot since it was released. As well as this, the pre-orders for Creative Assembly's forthcoming Empire: Total War are also dominating the Steam chart this week - the Napoleonic strategy epic is due to be released on 4 March. See the full Steam top 10 below:

01 Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War II (Last week: 3)
02 Left 4 Dead (Last week: 1)
