UK Game Charts: May 7-13

FIFA World Cup and Tomb Raider: Legend hold on to the top spots, with a football theme running through the rest of the chart.


EA's 2006 FIFA World Cup maintained its stranglehold on the UK charts again this week, with Tomb Raider: Legend sticking around at number two. Football fever has taken over, with four out of the top 10 titles based on the beautiful game. Championship Manager 2006 has climbed up to three, Pro Evolution Soccer 5 has reentered at four, thanks to a budget release, and FIFA Street 2 holds onto its longtime chart position at nine.

Disappointingly, there are no new entries in the chart this week. The Sims 2 managed to fight its way back into the top 10 at number eight, forcing Metroid Prime: Hunters and Buzz!: The BIG Quiz out of the listing. Every other game in the chart, which includes The Godfather, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter, Animal Crossing: Wild World, and Ice Age 2: The Meltdown, fell down the chart. Next week's major releases include X-Men: The Official Movie Game and Urban Chaos, so check GameSpot UK to see how well they fare.
