LEGO Batman 2: DC Superheroes has managed to make it one month at the top of the United Kingdom video game chart, showing that the re-imagining of the Gotham streets created from LEGO bricks has long-term appeal to both young players and their parents.
The game, which was developed by TT Games and published by Warner Bros
., has been the top seller in the United Kingdom for the week that ended on July 14 and, given the rather limited number of big titles coming during this week, the game might stay in the lead for some time more.
London 2012: The Official Videogame, from SEGA, continues to benefit from the hype surrounding the real world competition and has kept its second place while the last position on the podium is still occupied by The Amazing Spider-Man, the web slinging action title from developed Beenox and publisher Activision.
Dead Island Game of the Year Edition, the Deep Silver published zombie-based open-world game, has managed to gain one position over the previous week to occupy fourth spot. Meanwhile, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, the third-person action and stealth title from Ubisoft, has seen the biggest rise of the week, reaching fifth place after coming from ninth.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is also making a comeback on the strength of the various downloadable content packs released by Infinity Ward and Activision while The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has lost one position over the previous week, still holding the number seven position.
FIFA 12 has also lost one place to occupy eighth spot and Spec Ops: The Line has seen the biggest drop of the week and has slid to ninth coming from fourth.
