UK Charts: Sleeping Dogs is no.1 for this week

Posted By | On 20th, Aug. 2012

Sleeping Dogs has taken pole position on this week’s UK charts with London 2012 sent down to the third spot.

The game is awesome as you may have already noted, if not, you can check out our glowing review here.

“If you are into GTA then you might find Sleeping Dogs engaging with enough added mechanics to distance itself like Red Dead Redemption. Thanks to Sleeping Dogs, Square-Enix might finally have a hit on their hands and allow the new Lara Croft game some room to breathe in case it isn’t a perfect hit,” wrote our author John Capozza.

“It means Nintendo’s much anticipated ‘New Super Mario Bros 2’ has to settle for No 2 spot, a still impressive achievement as the title is only available on 3DS. It also matches its predecessor ‘New Super Mario Bros’ which hit the charts at No2 back in Week 26 2006,” reads the statement on UKIE.
