Now Playing: Devil May Cry 5 Video Review

Devil May Cry 5 has enjoyed a strong start on the UK physical sales chart, topping the all-format list in its debut week. For the week ending March 9, sales monitor Chart-Track says Capcom's hack-and-slash game displaces the previous No.1, Anthem, becoming the first in the series to top the chart since DmC in 2013.

Below Devil May Cry 5, Red Dead Redemption 2 finishes at No.2, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe claiming the final podium position at No.3. The week's only other new entry is Square Enix's stealth game Left Alive, which sneaks in at No.39.

We enjoyed Devil May Cry 5 here at GameSpot, with critic Matt Espineli awarding the game a 9/10. "DMC5 thrives on the stylistic and mechanical prowess of its predecessors," he wrote in our Devil May Cry 5 review. "It sticks to tradition above all else, pursuing a few ambitious new ideas along the way, but mostly maintaining the series' focus on intricate fighting systems and campy bravado. Rarely does the game stumble, consistently leveraging its spectacle and mechanical depth to push aside any small frustrations. All the while, the story exudes a charismatic charm that keeps you constantly intrigued as you're refining your skills. DMC5 proves the series can still be brilliant and imaginative without compromising its longest-held traditions."

Really glad to see Red Dead Redemption 2 still doing so well. On my second playthrough right now and the game is still just as amazing as it was on launch day. Definitely one of the best games this gen

Great news for Capcom and the DMC franchise!

No doubt it being a new game coupled with all the critical acclaim it has already garnered helped propel it up the charts.

What’s interesting however is how Red Dead 2 is still so high on the charts. I have a sneaking suspicion it will be the new GTA 5 for the remainder of the year. Speaking of, look who’s still holding onto the 10th position.
