Tomb Raider has clung on to the top spot in the UK retail charts.

The Square Enix reboot managed to outperform new entry Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 despite a massive 72 per cent dip in sales compared to launch week.

Meanwhile, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm plummeted down the charts from second to 14th, while the rest of the chart is pretty stable.

Next week - Gears of War: Judgment makes it debut. Watch out Lara.

I laughed my ass off playing sniper ghost warrior 2 multiplayer, not because its fun but such an awful attempt, one character to choose from, one game mode and 2 maps. So bad I can't even bring myself to play it for the achievements. Single player mediocre though. It's like releasing at a low price was the developers admitting this isn't very good

Tomb Raider was fucking awesome. I couldn't put it down, it was too good. That's the Single Player though...the MP is a sack of shit.

Obligatory mention of how long Skyrim's been in the charts.

I still can't believe how quickly DMC fell off the chart, while cash grabs, like COD and A:CM

@5; Yeah, quite a sad fate that - definitely a pity that a good game like DmC sold so poorly due to a disgruntled fanbase, while the steaming turd that is A:CM might actually turn a profit. The horror...

Agreed on DmC being a great game, pity to see that slip quickly whilst Crysis 3 with it's 7 hour campaign (First time through, on the hardest difficulty, whilst reading all the logs...) and it's iffy multiplayer which had potential , but it's plagued by the same issues as previous Crysis titles and already has dying playlists (Medley, Developers' Choice, Capture the Relay/Extraction) is still top 5.

Feel dirty that I paid full price for C3 but got DmC second hand.

#9: Wouldn't call Tomb Raider open world. The campaign leads you through a bunch of linearly connected segments (some of which collapse as you navigate them so they can't be returned to), but you can fast travel from one part to the others you've already discovered.

Far Cry 3 is closer to open world, apart from the fact that you can'#t go onto the second island until you've gotten that far in the story.

Both games have the enemies gradually disappear from the single player environment after the campaign (Tomb Raider) or after liberating outposts (FC3), this is to encourage you to play MP on either game. FC3 added an update where you can reset the outposts after doing them all so the enemies will return if you want them to.

Gears of War: Judgement will tell to Lara "go to 2nd place because it is time for me get top first place" hehehe lmfao. :)

I cannot wait for Bioshock: Infinite next week and hope this game kick GoW Judgement down but wait and see. :)
