Lightning's third outing had to settle for third place, with Call of Duty: Ghosts wedging itself into second.
Number counters Gfk Chart-Track said that The Lego Movie Videogame, which coincides with the release of the movie, outsold CoD: Ghosts by 15,000 units, but added that the gap between Call of Duty and Lightning Returns was much narrower.
FIFA 14 was fourth, GTA V fifth, and Lego Marvel Super Heroes was sixth. An eighth of the UK top 40 was made up of Lego titles, Chart-Track adds. Joining The Lego Movie Videogame and Lego Marvel Super Heroes is Lego Batman 2 at 19, Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga at 22, and Lego The Lord of the Rings at 27.
