Unfortunately the game didn’t exactly hit the heights as far as critical reception goes, as it currently sits at an average score of around 69, however that hasn’t stopped people buying it in their droves, as it apparently ‘smashed’ the numbers of the previous game in the series, which also hit number one back in 2004.
 
Elsewhere this week, LEGO Movie takes second spot, FIFA 14 lands in third place and another EA title, Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare, debuts in fourth position.
 
One other new entry of note is for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, which arrives in 10th position.
