GRID 2
This Week's UK Top 20 Xbox 360 Charts
Written By
View author's profile

GRID 2 (we designed the achievements) has leapt to the number one spot in the UK retail charts, displacing Metro: Last Light and seeing off stiff competition from perennial performer FIFA 13.

The Codemasters racer (we designed the achievements) bested the chart position of its predecessor, which only managed to debut at number two, yet failed the match its sales. Comparing the first week sales of the two games, GRID 1 outsold GRID 2 (we designed the achievements) by 29 per cent.

Meanwhile, EA shooter Fuse (we didn't design the achievements) could only manage a lowly 17th place, in a desperately poor performance. Full chart below.

@1

People who have a desire to play Skylanders Giants, these are the people who purchase* the product.


*Or get people to purchase it for them

I heard the fuse demo was quite good. I see the full game has failed, hard

Fuse is at 37 in the cross platform charts, ROFL, and I'm glad for two reasons, it shows people are finally tiring of the 'just another shooter' genre, and Insomniac can get back to Ratchet and Clank.

So sad for Fuse, and @6 nah shooters aren't going anywhere, we only need good shooters that is.

The Problem with Fuse is that it's a disaster with AI and with less then 4 human players + the premise ans story is weak according to all of my friends. That's what keeping me (and probably a lot others) from buying it

I don't get why they'd spend lots of cash developing a game, then nothing advertising it. I've not seen a single advert for Fuse, only word I've seen of it is the first to 1k competition that TA are running.

@6 No, you shouldn't be happy about this, because based on past experience after Fuse's failure EA will simply close the studio. Or are they not in house with EA? I actually don't know. If they aren't, then hooray, because EA sure as hell won't hire them and, as you say, they can get back to Ratchet and Clank.

"Fuse dies a death"
More like a Heatdeath, amirite?

Still LOLing at the accusations of "generic" and "just another shooter". They just don't hold up and ignore the most important part. Y'know......gameplay?
Which is damn smooth. Characters AND enemies that bring their own play style.
More than adequate graphics.
Like seriously, what exactly were people expecting from this title? Way too much.

With that said the story was run-of-the-mill Tom Clancy stuff.
"Sure hope this deadly chemical doesn't fall into the wrong hands. OOPS. Better go stop them properly."
Some of the dialogue was straight off the rack (Everything Meilin says ie. "You're not walking away from this") or way off tone (Dalton cuts out some dude's eyes and ask if anyone wants to get a taco after this)
The final boss was piss easy compared to everything preceding it.

All it really needed was a better writer and maybe some more graphical polish to Sheng Island (It doesn't do wilderness too well). I don't really see how it could have done more.

Definitely neck and neck with DmC as the best game I've played this year.

#11: You weren't "bombarded with hate", stop trying to paint yourself as some genius martyr. The consensus was that it looked 'generic'.

It's cool to hate on Fuse. "Generic, Fail,Borderlands, EA, Bla Bla Bla." Just missing out on some really fun shooter coop. After more than a decade of mainstream shooters, what FPS or 3rd person shooter doesn't have elements that seem generic by now? Hate on!

Just started Fuse last night. First mission completed and I really like it. Can't wait to play again tonight. There's only 2 of us but it was really fun. Using the weapons in conjunction with each other and switching characters was satisfying.

Credibility lost when you said DmC was among the best of the year. Clearly your skill as a gamer is lacking and most likely fuse is an easy bore.

@11 I thought you were 'bombarded with hate' as everyone thought you were that BurnTheWelsh guy.

@13 If this is neck and neck with DmC as the best this year, then gaming really needs to get up from the toilet.

Personally I think best of the year is either metro last light or bioshock 3

Why these discussions about GotY? GTA V takes it anyways.

On topic then, played the demo for Fuse, making me not the least bit willing to buy it, even if it drops significantly in price. GRID 2 isn't my kind o' racing game, but it must feel good for you guys that everyone's gets to see your creation. And after mentioning it about a 1000 times on this site, I think every regular visitor knows you guys made the achievement list :P. Anyways, great job nonetheless.

In my opinion, Tomb Raider is my GOTY so far. But I just started Infinite.

Me and my some friends had great time blast through Fuse and it is good game. I gave it 75%. Good game and it is fun. But got some buggy, story tell is somewhat good and bad share each other when watch story cutscene. Gameplay is fun. Terrible horde mode because you died in one hit and difficult is too high in this mode as well not share money when pick up Fuse credits in horde mode unlike share in coop campaign. :D
