UK Chart: Crytek takes a bow as Crysis 3 tops chart for second week

Crysis 3 tops the UK charts, though there's not much else released this week.

Crysis 3 has topped the UK charts for the second week running.

FIFA 13 overtakes Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance to finish second, while Call of Duty: Black Ops II clings to fourth.

Far Cry 3 and Need for Speed: Most Wanted chart fifth and sixth, with Aliens: Colonial Marines slipping to seventh after suffering a 55 per cent sales drop-off in its second week. Dead Space 3 is at eighth, less than a hundred sales behind Aliens.

Assassin's Creed III and Hitman Absolution round out the top 10.

There are no new entries in the top 10 this week, but that will likely change next week with the arrival of Square Enix's Tomb Raider reboot, which received an 8.5 in its GameSpot review.

I've already beaten the campaign twice and going on my 3rd playthrough. It's awesome playing as Prophet. I will say that it's not better than Crysis 2, which is one of my favorite FPS's of all time.

How Aliens: CM remains at #7 is beyond me... Also happy to see MGR:R doing so well. Definitely deserves it.

I am extremely happy that Crysis 3 is 1st this week too, this game deserves it.

It is a game that catches my interest, but will have to wait until the price drops because of the ridiculously short campaign.  Looks like the best CRYSIS yet but also the shortest one.   5 hour campaign is not worth $60.

Being from the UK lets get few things straight. 


ACM still at top 10 chart  = because more people here in the UK fall for marketing and advertising , franchise ect. And a lot of casual buyers.

Crysis 3 =its a great game , of course it could of been much much better, but the MP... shows that COD is begining to bore people a bit. So a fresh jump isnt so bad. 

A visual treat .


MGR= shows their are people here in the UK. who know their games.

@queuing_for_PS4 thats a load of bs statistics and saying that its only selling because its multi platform is crap aswell. I think the crysis series means alot more to PC gamers than console gamers seeing it was originally a PC exclusive

@SurlyPotato then why are you here?

and besides, you are on a joint US/UK/Asia/Australia site, don't like the articles about somewhere else, please feel free to go somewhere else.

@Mr_Mark_Legion @queuing_for_PS4 This would more than likely be the last in the series, unless they like losing money. Crysis was never really that great after the first, so it's not surprising.

Oh, and the support for MP put a lot of people off with Crysis 2 as well.
