While FIFA 15 has once again managed to stay on top of the UK sales charts across all platforms for another week running, the recently released Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 failed to make the top 10.
Pro Skater 5 launched just last week to overwhelmingly negative reviews, which makes it easy to see why it failed to make the top 10 games sold in the UK over the past week. Gamespot gave the game a 3/10, while IGN gave it a 3.5/10.
Lego Dimensions, released last week by TT Games and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, made a strong impression in its first week of release. The ‘toys to life’ game debuts at No. 2 on the sales chart, and also comfortably outsold both Skylanders Superchargers and Disney Infinity 3.0, both rival toys to life games.
Another sports game, NBA 2K16, opened at No. 3 on the multiplatform sales chart for the week, with its first week of sales being up by 53% over last years iteration of the franchise. Both Destiny: The Taken King and Forza Motorsport 6 managed to stay in the top 10 a matter of weeks after release, coming in at No. 4 and No. 5 respectively.
To round out the bottom half of the top 10, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer was at No. 6, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was at No. 7, Skylanders Superchargers was at No. 8, GTA V was at No. 9 and Mad Max finished the list at No. 10.
