Top 10 UK Games Chart: Darksiders 3 Struggles In Debut Week

FIFA 19 has finished top of the UK physical games chart for the second week in a row, according to sales monitor Chart-Track. EA’s sports title maintains its run at the top despite Red Dead Redemption 2 gaining ground by finishing at No.2 for the week ending December 1.

Below the two huge games lies another behemoth, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which is down one place to No.3, while Battlefield V finishes at No.4 for the second week running. Forza Horizon 4 rounds out the top five.

The only new entry this week was Darksiders 3, which finished at No.32. THQ Nordic’s action title has suffered from poor reviews, including a 4/10 from GameSpot. “Darksiders 3 retrogrades on its predecessors with an unfocused approach that constantly clashes with itself,” wrote critic Richard Wakeling. “There are remnants of a good game here, buried within the vivacious combos of a combat style this game doesn’t want to embrace. Unfortunately, it’s buried far too deep to ever salvage.” For more, read our full Darksiders 3 review.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launches for Nintendo Switch this week, so it’ll be interesting to see what effect that has on the UK sales chart. Check back next week for the outcome.
