Gears of War: Judgment chainsaws to top of UK Charts
Gears of War: Judgment

Gears of War: Judgment has executed Tomb Raider to take the top spot in the UK.

Tomb Raider had a good run with two weeks as the number one selling title in the UK, but all good things must come to an end. Microsoft and Epic Games’ Gears of War: Judgment is now the number one title in the UK. Set as a prequel to the original Gears of War trilogy, Judgment stars Damon Baird as main protagonist as he and his squad testify over using an unauthorized weapon.

There were quite a few surprises in this week’s chart. God of War: Ascension, which was number two last week, fell hard to the number six spot. An even bigger fall was Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm, which failed to chart in its second week of availability. Meanwhile, the critically panned The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct debuted in the number three spot.

There was some good news for the Wii U within the charts. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, an HD Remaster of the Wii title, debuted in the seventh spot. This is the first Wii U title to make it onto the UK Charts in months.
