Eidos Montreal continues its triumphant entry onto the UK charts...

Despite a 50% reduction in sales over last week's launch figures, Deus Ex: Human Revolution has remained atop the UK chart this week having fought off a strong new entry at No.2 from Ubisoft's Driver San Francisco.

Both titles have effectively put an end to Zumba Fitness' reign of terror on the UK charts. With high-profile games such as Resistance 3, Dead Island, F1 2011, and FIFA 12 all set for release before the end of the month, it's now safe to say that real gaming has regained control of the No.1 spot.

505 Games' current slate remained strong this week though, with Zumba coming in at No.3 and Rugby World Cup 2011 at No.4. Disney also continued to perform well with LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean at No.5 and Cars 2 at No.8.

A second new entry into the top 10 came from EA Sports Madden NFL 12, which landed at No.6 despite a niche market for American football games here in the UK. It's a four place improvement over Madden NFL 11's entry into the chart last year, which just managed to scrape the sharp end at No.10.

In more troubling news, Codemasters' Bodycount recorded a disappointing entry into the charts this week at No.36. Our review is forthcoming, although we were left a little unsure after our last preview of the game.

  1. Deus Ex: Human Revolution
  2. Driver San Francisco
  3. Zumba Fitness
  4. Rugby World Cup 2011
  5. LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean
  6. Madden NFL 12
  7. Call of Duty: Black Ops
  8. Cars 2
  9. FIFA 11
  10. The Sims 3

Yet another reason why I frequent your site, you use words like flummoxed.

You crazy brits with your beer and your "football" and your fancy vocabulary. What will you think of next?

This guy is really asking for it...  Admitedly he's probably right, Deus Ex did lack big scripted moments, but that's because it was all about evolving your character.

He's also right about the consolisation of Invisible War - although I think that got some harsh criticism.

I actually hope they put some work into it and make it for the PC, instead of a crappy portal from consoles. IW sucked because of the excessive load screens.
