Duke Nukem Forever
This Week's UK X360 Top 20 Charts
Written Monday, June 20, 2011 By Richard Walker
View author's profile

Always bet on Duke we said last week, and you know what? We were right, as once again Duke Nukem Forever tops the UK charts for the second consecutive week, flying in the face of the numerous negative reviews the game has been receiving, showing that you can't keep Duke down, even if his game ain't up to much.

Sadly, the same can't be said for the genius Portal 2 this week, as it plummets down the top 20 from a cosy 8th position all the way down to number 19. Dungeon Siege III is the highest new entry meanwhile, beating Alice: Madness Returns and Child of Eden in its opening week on the charts.

And finally, at the bottom of the charts, you can tell that Wimbledon begins this week, as Top Spin 4 returns with F1 2010 joining it, as it jumps up nine places. And that's about it for this week. Can Duke stay on top for again next week? This time, we're not so sure.

@1 I thought everyone would be tired of making these kinds of observations after the exact same thing happening with MW2. Oh well guess I was wrong...

Why is DNF at the top ? Are people that gullible to think thats its fun to play just because they played the old duke games ?

I have seen at least 20 pre owned copies of Duke Nukem Forever at my local GAME store. I truthfully regret buying that game.

@5 what a stupid comment. It is very very fun to play, and I wasn't even looking forward to it that much.

@7 obviously not a huge flop as it's number 1 for the second week running. And after all the harsh and unfair reviews (this site included I'm afraid to say) it's even more of an achievement it's up there. And it's not like it's top by lack of competition - it's beating some truly excellent games to do it. I would call that a MAJOR success. The Duke would be proud.

#4 - Hate to say it, but I am not so sure about the 'original' part, so far. That trek through the typical industrial factory level (with fire!) really got me down. Followed by... ice level. :( Pretty uninspiring so far.

I am glad to see Child Of Eden in the top ten... hard as nails, but a total blast.

I got Duke on PC and it actually is fun. Good old school FPS. No complication, like which gun to pick or which way to go with some due humor in the mix. Can't go wrong:-) No surprises here realy, just surprised tjhat shit of a game BRink is still so high up...

@17 Alice, innovative? what? Sure, it's a great game, but not innovative. Child of Eden on the other hand is.

If Black Ops is the best selling game ever (next to guitar Hero 3) how is it still selling copies? It should have been booted from the top 20 LOOOOOOOONG ago! Anyway, good to see Duke Nukem at No. 1, but Alice at No. 7.... fucking hell, deserves at LEAST 3!

I'm hoping Armageddon falls out of the top 20 fast. It really disappointed me they removed the MP from it.

Seeing games like Portal 2 (which by the way holds a 95 score on metacritic) drop 11 places and games like Homefront and Brink move up 1 place makes me sad inside. Shame on casual gamers.

@20 i do see where your coming from, i was thinking the same thing myself with it possibly being just another hack and slash. but at least there trying to seperate themselves from other games.

brink on the other hand is just another fps trying to milk a global cash cow(and even though it copied the traditional formula it failed at that as well, at least cod:mw has decent sp)

Glad to see Duke up there. Had a lot of fun with Duke, and I still am. Multiplayer is a blast, and I love the whole "My Digs" idea. More when I unlock donuts than when I unlock some new gun :)
@26 I thumbs downed you because you lol'd at The Lion King, the single greatest movie of all time. And do you really think 4th graders know good films like Lion King?
