Kane & Lynch 2 tops UK all-formats chart

Square Enix sequel hits top spot in opening week despite inconsistent reviews

Square Enix's shooter sequel Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days has taken the top spot on the UK's all-format charts, becoming the publisher's third number one title of 2010 after Just Cause 2 and Final Fantasy XIII.

The original Kane & Lynch experienced nothing like as much success, managing only 14th during its highest-charting week, week 48 of 2007. The sequel received vastly mixed reviews, ranging from a 1/10 from Destructoid to a 9/10 from Official Xbox Magazine.

The title pushes Toy Story 3 down to second place, with Red Dead Redemption slipping to third. LEGO: Harry Potter: Years 1-4 takes the fourth spot, with Ubisoft's Just Dance sitting just below it in fifth.

Glad for the guys at IO, clearly better then the first one and taken in the feedback from people.

Mafia 2 is a bit of a wait and so for me, Was looking forward for that one, but after the PS3 demo not sure anymore. The framerate was not really perfect and some heavy screen tearing at times.
