Top 10 UK Games Chart: Crackdown 3 Makes Slow Start In Debut Week

Far Cry: New Dawn wins the battle of the new releases this week as it debuts at No.1 in the UK physical sales chart, ahead of Metro: Exodus at No.2. Xbox One console exclusive Crackdown 3, however, fails to make the top 10 for the week ending February 16.

Sales monitor GfK Chart-Track also notes that Metro: Exodus was top of the chart in terms of revenue--likely owing to New Dawn's lower RRP. Microsoft's commitment to making all first party games available on release day at no extra cost with Xbox Game Pass should also be remembered. For comparison's sake, the last big Xbox exclusive, Forza Horizon 4, debuted at No.3, so Crackdown 3's No.13 finish may come as a disappointment for Microsoft. Jump Force is the final new release this week, and it finishes at No.4 in its first week on sale.

Far Cry: New Dawn launched to a mixed critical reception. We awarded the spin-off a 6/10 in our Far Cry: New Dawn review, with critic Edmond Tran stating the open-world title "is a palatable but unremarkable spin-off that feels like it could have achieved so much more."

Our 8/10 Metro: Exodus review, meanwhile, was rather more positive. Michael Higham said "Exodus puts together a charismatic crew of friends and family that you'll want to follow to the ends of the earth."

 

Finally, Crackdown 3 has suffered from a poor reception from critics, including a 5/10 in GameSpot's Crackdown 3 review. Chris Pereira said "the game has little new to offer beyond cool destruction tech that never gets put to good use."
