This week sees a totally new top four storming the charts. Crystal Dynamics' brave Tomb Raider reboot has deservedly romped into the top spot, becoming the biggest launch of 2013 (outselling Colonial Marines in its first week by a factor of two), while the incredibly controversial SimCity has ended up in second place. We'll have some impressions and a full review of Maxis' social city builder later this week, now that the worryingly shaky launch is stabilising.
Crysis 3 has fallen to sixth, with the tail end of the charts totally unchanged since last week. EA will doubtlessly be chuffed to note that they've published a full half of the top ten, including the ninth Sims 3 expansion pack.
