Sniper Elite 3 has found its mark for a second week running, turning the top spot in the UK Games Charts into pink mist in the process. Brendan has delivered our final verdict on the cathartic and controversial shooter, describing it as "better than a bullet in the nads." Remembering, of course, that you'll witness every bullet to the crown jewels in gory slow-motion.
The remainder of the Top Ten is fairly unsurprising as Titanfall maintains its strong sales and FIFA regains its position, whereas the likes of GRID Autosport and UFC are gradually sliding down the rankings. However, there's some interesting action in the lower leagues. Tomodachi Life and Mario Kart 8 are both holding strong, while Rayman Legends and South Park: The Stick Of Truth are both shooting back into contention following some competitive deals. And, perhaps, a bit of a summer drought to fill with games we missed earlier this year.
Buggy, sub-par yet incredibly compelling experiment Murdered: Soul Sacrifice is also still selling well considering its niche appeal, making Airtight Games' recent closure even more tragic. Either way, click below for the details.
