Microsoft's flagship driving sim has EA's biggest sports series eating its dust...

Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios' Forza Motorsport 4 has done a turbo-charged launch off the starting line right to the top of the UK chart this week, leaving the likes of EA's FIFA 12, Ubisoft's Just Dance 3, and Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 spluttering in its exhaust fumes.

It was a close run thing though: according to official Chart-Track figures, only 700 unit sales made up the difference between Forza 4 at No.1 and FIFA 12 at No.2 – Turn 10's sim also managed to scoop the biggest launch week for any Microsoft racing game in UK chart history.

Two new entries, Just Dance 3 and PES 2012, sandwiched id's Rage at No.4 (which drops two places), while Gears of War 3 and Zumba Fitness similarly incured two spot drops to No.6 and No.8 respectively as they made way for the new entries.

It's Dark Souls and F1 2011 that suffered the most on the top 10 this week though: both moved down four places to No.7 and No.9 while another new entry, Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge squared off the top 10.

  1. Forza Motorsport 4
  2. FIFA 12
  3. Just Dance 3
  4. Rage
  5. Pro Evolution Soccer 2012
  6. Gears of War 3
  7. Dark Souls
  8. Zumba Fitness
  9. F1 2011
  10. Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge

forza 4 is lame and career i a joke not forgetting world tour mode, what a complete waste of time that is, it can be completed even if you come last in every race ? and i thought the whole idea was to come first or you dont progress, seriously gwynne forza 4 does not deserve 8/10 you would be generous giving it a 6/10, the only place it score highly in is graphics but graphics doesnt make a great game

just 1 last thin how did forza 4 score 82% for Originality lol its a racing game and its about as original as every other gran turismo clone.

@Post 10: I tested the career mode rigorously for this review - I wouldn't make statements like I did in the review unless I had the game time behind me to back it up.

The cars you drive are obviously faster and harder to control as you progress through the career. From what I played though, the AI remains the same. Obviously those AI cars are driving faster because you're driving in higher classes, but you're also driving a faster car so this cancels that out. Relatively speaking, the AI dawdled just as much through the corners regardless of how far along I was in the career or the car class I raced in.

right so the x2010 exists does it, in what a video game or real life, the x2010 is not even a reality its a prototype thats not even been made a reality yet but you seam to think it has, looks like the only one crying here is your self, crying about your LAST PLACE 4 LIFE ps3 that you have only owned for less than a year and you think you know everything when you just another typical sad fanboy troll with no games and nothing better to do than troll websites looking to start flamewars, good luck trying that on VGCHARTZ as youll get banned in less than a week.
