Not bad going for a game that was written off by most critics, I personally really enjoyed MOH the MP aspect of it is fun

If the reviews were released a number of days prior to the games release it probably wouldn't have done nearly as good.

That was the plan, no review copies before release, so no reviews. But with it coming out in the US before the UK there were reviews available before the UK release.

i tend not to pay much attention to most reviews anyways, but in my opinion this game isjust like any other shooter but seems to be lacking alot

Proof, if any were needed, that people will buy any old crap.
UKVampire's avatar
Yep, I don't know how Skylanders keeps selling either ;)

Agreed, didn't rate the last MoH so not bothering at all with this one. Skylanders is selling really well because of kids and upcoming christmas. My eldest has skylanders and considering the amount of kids that are gonna be begging for it for christmas there's no surprise really! :)

I got to agree with you, I played the demo and I didn't see anything new being brought to the table and I don't think the sales pitch "Play as your home countries special forces!" is a significant enough feature.

What the frig is Moshi Monsters?

As Gloria said "Proof, if any were needed, that people will buy any old crap" LOL

Moshi Monsters is again a franchise aimed at kids. It's annoying and expensive lol :)

kinda makes me sad looking at that list. Looks like the Layton hype has started to drop off too. Usually that gets much higher.
Anonymous user's avatar
That might be because the 3DS is still a relatively new system rather than people abandoning the franchise though.

Also wanna point out with Skylanders, is that for the game itself or is it the toys aswell? It's kinda vague.
Anonymous user's avatar
I think if it included the toys as well it'd be much higher :)

im shocked that it has made number 1 i personally did not like it but as ive said for a while all 3rd person shooters have become the same old thing and nothing in my eyes has beat call of duty 4 because they are all to similar! except halo 4 that looks amazing lol because its wanted more than these modern day shooters!
Robichoico's avatar
I think the problem Pokemon has it A: It's a DS game and a lot of people think that alone makes it inferior to the 3DS (notice how some sites have it reduced down already) and B: It says Black and White 2. Most people probably think it's just an update to the one they bought last year. I think Christmas will increase its sales but not expecting much

Top 3 is disapointingly predictable (Though I am suprised Pokemon decended so quickly) number 4 is the suprise for me. While I have yet to play one as I thought it would be the type of game you get sick of fast, they seem intresting in concept at least. I should really give one a try but I worry about my bank account....

Hopefully this silences a few naysayers! I loved the game, the SP was a spectacular sequel to the first. It's not without it's bugs, and it's not perfect, but honestly what game is in release week nowadays. Hope the sales keep up and it encourages a third!
Dead's avatar
Sorry, but sales does not equate to quality, the music industry has been proving that for years.

Will Skyrim ever stop selling? It's a shame XCOM is so far down the list,
hairyneville's avatar
With all the technical gaffes and problems with DLC, I'm also pretty surprised that Skyrim's still going strong. I must admit I got a good 135 hours out of it after buying it full price, but after that I just lost all motivation to keep playing. Still, 135 hours for £36 is pretty good value for money in my book, so if the folks still buying it get the same amount of enjoyment out of it for £20-£25, I don't suppose I'm really in a position to be snide about their buying choices! :D

I'm shocked that MOH is in the number 1 spot, considering how bad the reviews sounded. However with Cod coming out in 2 weeks I don't think it will stay there for very long!
creed95's avatar
it will most likely be off next week considering AC3 is out in a couple of days

That is one hell of a surprise, I can't see it surviving for long though especially with ACIII incoming.

creed95's avatar

You can't disagree with sales figures, they're facts, people actually went and bought that many copies of the game. And you can't disagree with their reasons for buying it, as you already said it was a great game. ;)

maybe its the whole roblem with dawnguard and hearthfire that boosted the sales. i imagied that alot of people bought the xbox version to play it

Not surprised to see Medal of Honor at the top. There's no other big releases really this week to challenge it. What would be interesting is to see the charts with sales figures so you can compare it against other big releases. My biggest surprise is the number of people who I game/friends with are actually enjoying both the multiplayer and single player.

This really did surprise me. assassins creed will knock MOH off and it will be lower next week.

i did not expect this at all. the campaign i just about average and multiplayer is a little better. i agree with people when they say if battlefield and call of duty had a love child then this game would be the one that pops out. i sick of these companies shoving modern military shooters down our throats. after the 2010 flop i would have though medal of honor wil have learnt there lesson and maybe should have done another WW1/WW2 game. yeah they got old but with the frostbite engine and all that detruction who knows what it could have been like

Its a bit sad that X-Com which is something a bit different as well as something that needs a bit of thinking about has dropped to 20. For my money though its not a bad chart with 16/20 of them being decent games.

I'm hoping that word of mouth will help XCOM keep a steady stream of sales going. Also hoping that fans keep hold of it and don't sell it on, so sales figures aren't reduced by lots of second hand purchases.
Datastatic's avatar
Me too, there is a lot of replayability in there and incoming DLC. Its not like a 3rd person shooter where you can just turn to another 3rd person shooter and move on. It is one of the best 5 games of the year in my opinion.

Downloading the Xcom demo from XBLA today. Money's tight at the moment, but if I like what the demo has to offer then I may well shell out just to support it against all the big bucks releases that are coming out at the moment (harsh glare at Medal of Honor, Assassin's Creed 3 et al!).
