UK Top 10 Games: 19th November 2012

Call of Duty at No. 1? What a mad world we live in! The latest game in the insanely successful "COD" franchise - Black Ops II - storms in at No. 1 with the biggest game launch of the year and the 4th biggest of all time! The game knocks last week's top game - Halo 4 - down one place to No. 2.

But Black Ops II wasn't the only release this week. This week's other new entries start with The Sims 3: Seasons which debuts at No. 9.

Meanwhile Call of Duty's handheld counterpart, Black Ops II: Declassified on the Playstation Vita makes a surprisingly good debut at No. 16 - making it the second biggest Vita game of the year. Unfortunately for Vita owners the game has actually received very poor reviews, meaning it may not be the system seller that fans and Sony hoped it would be.

This week also saw the first of Sony's "Wonderbooks" for Playstation Move. The first one takes place in the wizarding world of Harry Potter and is titled Book of Spells. It enters the chart at No. 25.
Codemaster's F1 Race Stars is right below at No. 26. It was another game that received disappointing reviews, with many saying the superior kart racer was in fact, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Sadly for that game the good word failed to spread as it makes a disappointing debut at No. 27.

Coincidentally, it was one of the games that featured on our "5 games that won't sell this Christmas" list. To view the full feature click here!

Come back next week for more Top 10 news!


No Hitman Absolution? Man, you guys just judge the book by its cover, don't you? Read the back and you'll find out what it really is. It's not merely just a deranged hitman killing people for pay! It's something different, it has a sad, but interesting and storyline to it. Play it and you'll see! It takes stealth and planning to infiltrate a hostile area and you will die trying! It stimulates your brain unlike other games where you just point and shoot.

Why play freakin' black ops shit like other boys who just want explosions, gun firing, and just want to join the army, when you can play something like Hitman Absolution or assassin's creed lll that stimulates the mind?

Hey George, Hitman: Absolution is a very good game and you'll be happy to hear that it has done quite well in the UK Top 10. Check out the link below where Agent 47 debuted strongly at No. 2. Sadly, Black Ops II did manage to keep the top spot and we feel your pain that it is an over-hyped franchise at this point, but No. 2 is still a great chart entry for a smaller franchise :)
