Now Playing: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Video Review

Bethesda's Prey failed to knock Mario Kart 8 Deluxe off the top of the UK physical sales chart this week. The sci-fi action game finished at No.2, below Nintendo's racer, for the week ending May 6.

The rest of the top five is made up of the evergreen Grand Theft Auto V, which maintains its place at No.3, while Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (No.4) and Lego Worlds (No.5) both rise, week-on-week.

Elsewhere in the chart, Telltale's Guardians of the Galaxy debuts at No.31. The episodic game's physical version launched this week--just a few days after Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hit cinemas in the UK--though the first episode has been available digitally since April 18.

No Caption Provided

It is worth noting that Prey launched on Friday, May 5, so it had less time on the market this week compared to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which launched a week earlier. Deluxe is, however, exclusive to Nintendo Switch, whereas Prey is available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Last week, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe set a new franchise sales record in the US and zoomed to the top of both the Australian and UK games charts. In our Mario Kart 8 Deluxe review, Kallie Plagge said Nintendo's racer was already a "great racing game" when it was released in 2014 on Wii U, but the overhaul of Battle Mode makes it "well worth reinvesting yourself in Mario Kart 8 on Switch."

Our Prey review in progress, meanwhile, noted the game's frustrating Mimic enemies, and critic Tamoor Hussain said that, so far, the game offers a "vanilla combat experience." Keep an eye on GameSpot for our full Prey review in the near future.
