Mortal Kombat X storms the UK chart

Unsurprisingly, Mortal Kombat X has knocked Battlefield Hardline off its perch and taken the UK chart. More surprising is that GTA V has also hopped over Hardline to steal second, meaning the cops and robbers have to make do with third in the chart this week.

Here’s how the rest of the chart looks for the week ending April 18.

Three in a row for EA’s Battlefield Hardline

Dark Souls II released this week for Xbox One andPS4 but could only muster a mid chart entry. Meanwhile, EA’s latest title in the Battlefield series is taking the UK chart by storm with a third week sitting pretty at number 1. Can Mortal Kombat X knock Battlefield Hardline from its throne? It releases next week on Tuesday so there’s time for the cops and robbers to run of with four UK chart titles!

Here’s how the rest of the chart looks for the week ending April 4.

Hardline holds onto the loot UK chart

I’ll be the first to admit that I wasn’t at all bothered at getting Battlefield Hardline, but after reading Greg’s review and hearing how much Dave was enjoying playing at cops and robbers, I buckled and picked it up – damn is it fun.

This week, not only has Hardline held onto the UK chart, but EA’s newest Battlefield title has fended off the attentions of PlayStation’s Bloodborne. Handsome Jack drops by with Borderlands at third while GTA slips further down the chart.

Can Hardline make it three in a row? With little out this week and word spreading fast that Hardline is well worth your time, I wouldn’t be surprised to see it retain the chart.

Here’s how the rest of the chart looks for the week ending March 28.

EA’s cops and robbers make off with the UK chart

Battlefield and Final Fantasy fight it out for supremacy in the UK chart this week, I can’t say I’m surprised by Battlefield taking the top spot – it was sold out in several of my local stores! It’s great to see Final Fantasy placing so highly, although I wonder how many of the sales were from folk that just wanted to get access to the Final Fantasy 15: Episode Duscae demo.

I’ve been playing both titles over the weekend and they’re certainly worth your pennies. Hardline’s campaign is a welcome change of pace from the combat that the previous titles focused on and the multiplayer mode Hotwire is an insane amount of fun, particularly if you’re playing with mates.

Final Fantasy has gone the other way and brings a more combat focused RPG. While it’s slightly juxtaposed, the story is just as griping and had me wanting more!

Here’s how the rest of the chart looks for the week ending March 21.

GTA V heists help deliver the UK chart to Rockstar

There’s two new entries in the UK chart this week – DmC Definitive Edition and Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition, which enter the chart at fifth and tenth respectively. GTA V is back on top (unsurprisingly) as Heists finally come to GTA Online. Last week’s top of the chart, Dying Light, slips down one place to second.

Dying Light takes another bite out of the UK chart

It’s all about zombies again this week for the UK chart, with Techland’s Dying Light taking the top spot for the second week in a row. Rebellion launched Zombie Army Trilogy this week but Hitler’s army of the undead could only muster an appearance at number 8. It seems that even though Dying Light saw a digital release over a month ago it hasn’t halted retail sales – is this a reflection on how the UK just isn’t geared up for digital downloads, or is the pricing model of digital titles still are far throw from the successes that Steam has enjoyed?

Here’s how the rest of the chart looks for the week ending March 7.

UK chart: Dying Light shuffles in at number 1

Last week the PS4 took the UK crown with The Order: 1886. This week it’s back to business with multi-platform titles taking the limelight.

After a slightly delayed launch Dying Light finally appeared in stores and I can tell it’s well worth the wait. Shuffling straight in at number one Call of Duty’s own zombies couldn’t fend off Techland’s Volatiles. Dragon Ball Xenoverse has also made quite the entry taking up residence at number three.

Here’s how the rest of the chart looks for the week ending February 28.

UK chart: Evolve knocks Advanced Warfare down

Evolve was always going to take the UK chart crown from Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare – it’s been gathering pace and hype for weeks, regardless of the somewhat iffy DLC cloud that had been cast over its launch. I never bought into the hype – the concept of Evolve didn’t grab me and neither did the beta, but after some glowing feedback from my friends I bought it anyway and I absolutely love it, particularly playing with friends.

The Legend of Zelda also enters the chart this week but Link couldn’t quite handle the multi-platform sales of 2K’s monstrous multiplayer shooter. Speaking of Monsters, Monster Hunter 4 is the third new entry this week taking up number 4 on the chart while Advanced Warfare clings on to a podium position in third.

Here’s how the rest of the chart looks for the week ending February 14.
