Despite Reviews, The Order is the UK's Number One Game

By Leon Hurley on at

The Order may not have reviewed well, but that hasn't stopped it going straight in at number one in the UK game charts.

The other big recent release, Evolve, has lost its top slot already and is currently sitting at number 3, with Call Of Duty Advanced Warfare apparently showing no signs of leaving the top spots just yet. It's testament to just how big COD is that months after release it's still beating new games - it's actually climbed up one place since last week (similarly Minecraft shows no sign of going away just yet). Evolve's sales on the other hand have already dropped by two-thirds.

Nintendo's recent 3DS hits also seem to lack staying power, with Majora’s Mask slipping from 2 to 6 while Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate has dropped out of the top 10 altogether and currently resides at number 12.

Another relatively high profile recent release, Total War: Attila, came in at 21

Here are the UK charts for the week ending February 21st:

  1. The Order: 1886 (Sony)
  2. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (Activision)
  3. Evolve (2K)
