UK Chart: Sniper Elite V2 Holds High Ground

Published May 14, 2012 by |

Sniper Elite V2 stands ground, despite an onslaught of FIFA sales during the final week of the English football calender, taking the top spot with a 38% fall in sales against its first week.

FIFA Street (+10%) and [Prototype 2] (-53%) swap positions at second and fourth respectively. FIFA 12 retains its number three spot, with EA promoting new UEFA Euro 2012 downloadable content (rather than the usual separate title).

Mass Effect 3, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12, Star Wars Kinect, Mario & Sonic London 2012 Olympic Games and Battlefield 3 remain stationary from fifth through to ninth. Tenth place is taken by Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, jumping five places ahead of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3, completing the top ten.

Starhawk, the sequel to the 2007 cult online shooter Warhawk, debuts at seventeenth as one of two new entries. Telltale Games needed to wait until week two of sales to see the retail version of Back to the Future: The Game chart, coming in at thirty-eight.
