UK Games Charts | 23rd February 2013

According to ZZ Top, every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man. It seems that gamers are similarly affected regardless of gender, since Crysis 3 has rocketed to this week's pole position on the strength of its Nanosuit and pre-orders. We've still yet to receive review materials, but early reports suggest that the end of the trilogy is much like its predecessors: shiny and a bit underwhelming in gameplay terms.

It's managed to cut ahead of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, which managed to secure an albeit impressive second place. Carl heaped enormous frothy globbets of critical praise onto Platinum's brawler in our 9/10 review and video review - so, basically, buy it.

Otherwise, the dire Aliens: Colonial Marines is facebuggering the top end of this week's countdown, with more deserving games like Far Cry 3 and Dead Space 3 clinging on below. As always, we've got the top ten after the break.
