Saber Interactive’s World War Z climbs to the top of the UK video games chart in its first week.
We weren’t expecting this, we have to confess. Saber Interactive’s game of the film of the book, World War Z, has entered the UK software chart at No.1. Previous chart-topper, Ubisoft’s The Division 2, drops to third place.
In our review of World War Z, Tom Baines calls the game a “visual spectacle, that – when it works – translates incredibly well into set pieces in a video game.”
Other new entries in the chart – which tracks the sales of games at UK retail – also includes a strong performance for Snooker: The Official Video Game, which debuts at a creditable No.9. Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster also does reasonably well, charting at No.20.
Elsewhere in the chart we are a little disappointed to see Pathea’s engaging life simulation, My Time at Portia, enter at a lowly No.27. We expect, or at least hope, that it did better business on digital stores.
