UK charts – Metroid Other M misses top ten, Mafia II holds

Mafia II’s held on to the top spot in the UK charts, it’s been announced this morning.The 2K title held on despite a 23 percent sales drop from last week, as well as a challenge from Kane & Lynch 2, which landed at second.Wii Sports Resort made another challenge at the summit again, coming back at number three.

Toy Story 3 and Red Dead Redemption finished off the top five.

But there’s no room in the top ten for Metroid: Other M. The Team Ninja-developed title came in at 12.

Disappointing reviews, now disappointing sales.

Well my friend is lending me his copy (he hated it), but he said since I like JRPG's the story should appeal to me.

Hope I like it.

Other M Metacritic critic review graph says:
Positive: 29
Mixed: 9
Negative: 0

G4TV is not added to metacritic anymore so Morgan Webb can go talk in the woods. :)

I'm not surprised really. The Wii ads in the UK always make the console look like it is only for families

I was gonna get a Wii for MOM. I'm not so sure now. What's wrong with the game? Maybe Nintendo should have never let Team Ninja make it.

Because it went on sale on the very last day of the Month. ONE DAY to make it into the top ten? Usually games have at least one or two weeks.

Both would make more sense as a series than as movies, though I think Red Dead would be far easier to adapt.

RDR would be a great movie. If they allowed Martin Scorsese to work on it, I think it would be outstanding.

RDR would work really well. From the GTA universe, IV would work really well because of how gritty and realistic the story is.


Red Dead Redemption 1 Isn't As Good As People Remember It To Be

RDR 1 was a great game, but the lack of screen time for some characters, boring horse riding, and lack of mission variety takes away the fun at times.

I love how it seems a extreme few remember that red dead redemption is red dead revolver 2.

red dead revolver now that is rough red dead redemption for its time was groundbreaking and it still has way better cover system/dlc/mp content then red dead 2.

I remember all the bugs the game had day one like donkey lady so dam funny

RDR1 is a legendary game!!!

Really how to cope with a slow news day…

I know i said that

Oh boy let me guess no one here knows what red dead revolver is

Or you all never played version 1.0 of rdr 1 i bet its that so many on here have the stench of being in gaming for 10 years at most.
