Crysis 2 Maintains Top Spot In UK, Motorstorm Apocalypse Struggles

by Ernice Gilbert on April 4th, 2011, under EA, Hot, News, PC, PS3, Shooter, Xbox 360

Crysis 2 held its number one position on the UK charts last week, denying Shift 2: Unleashed the position. It’s also a shame that Motorstorm Apocalypse didn’t even make it in the top ten, something we’re sure was caused by the delay confusion because of the Japan earthquake crisis.

Besides that, Homefront is in fifth, a strong hold for a game that scored extremely poor, and neither Killzone 3 nor Bullestorm managed to steal a spot in the top ten.

The full quencher’s below the break.

1- Crysis 2 (Crytek, EA)
2- Zumba Fitness (Pipeworks Software, Majestico Entertainment)
3- Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars (Traveller’s Tales, LucasArts)
4- Shift 2: Unleashed (Slightly Mad Studios, EA)
5- Homefront (Kaos Studios, THQ)
6- Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 (EA Sports, EA)
7- WWE All Stars (THQ San Diego, THQ)
8- FIFA 11 (EA Sports, EA)
9- Pokemon White (Gamefreak, Nintendo)
10- Art Academy (Nintendo, Nintendo)

    for fifa 11 to stil be in the top 10 is an unbelievable achievement. They say the COD franchise is the most succesful ever but how can this be when fifa has been around for atleast 16 years and is still out stripping most games on every platform 9 months after its release?!!

    not surprised motorstorm is struggling, its boring as hell!
    i was ok with it for the first hour or so, then the maps dont change, the cars dont change, your doing the same crap from minute 20 to hour 10!
    its just the same crap over and over and over and over and over and over and over again!
    the cars handle really poorly too, the original 2 were distinctly arcade racers but this is kinda a mix between the 2 which really does not suit the series!
    the whole games appeal is changing environments but they dont change much, too often or in useful places.
    your going to crash ALLOT too!
    that would not matter if you did not get too punished for it, but you can be in front of everyone by a good few seconds, make one crash and thats it your dead last by a few good seconds and have to pull off 100 miracles to get back to the front again!
    if you crash your basically doomed straight away, and you have to be michael schumacher not to crash in this game!
    if you like this style of game, please go buy split second.
    did this idea first, AND did it 1000 times better!
    that game has cars that drive differently from each other, motorstorms feel the same!
    and each car feels just right, the handling feels perfect!
    split second is a MUCH better game then motorstorm apocalypse!

    I guess COD is the most popular this generation, and “ever” because it’s broken all entertainment records…
