Finally, Zumba Fitness' epic run at the top of the charts has been overthrown by a worthier successor! Deus Ex: Human Revolution has taken advantage of the dry release schedule to release straight into the top spot after only a few days on sale, and quite rightly so. Eidos Montreal has crafted a compelling and truly exceptional adventure that's one of the highlights of the entire console generation. You can read our 9/10 review for more details, but chances are that you're too busy skiving off work to play the damn thing!
Rugby World Cup 2011 has managed to secure third place, doubtlessly playing on our demand for a big budget rugby game and the otherwise slow period. We'll have a full review for you later today.
Xenoblade Chronicles and Zelda: Ocarina Of Time 3D have both sadly dropped off of the top ten.
Otherwise, it's business as usual. Zumba, LEGO Pirates, Black Ops and FIFA are all jockeying for position... but all of this is about to change. These next few months are going to be incredibly competitive as numerous massive games plan to release over the same 90 day period, and we can't wait to see which titles rise to glory and which get trampled underfoot.
