Medal of Honor, the series reboot from EA, has entered the UK chart in the top spot, overcoming a lukewarm critical reception to push FIFA 11 down into second.
Ubisoft's Just Dance 2 has hit third on its first week on sale, in a week which sees the original Just Dance slip out of the top ten and sink to 12th after 45 weeks on the chart. Naruto Shippenden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 is the only other top twenty new entry, hitting the chart at number nine.
Medal of Honor was judged to have underperformed somewhat in reviews, averaging a 75 per cent Metacritic rating with scores ranging from 91 down to 60 per cent. However, the number one position will be seen as justification for a series which had positioned itself in direct opposition to the forthcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops.
Troubled franchise Guitar Hero shows further signs of fading at retail, as Warriors of Rock disappears from the top 20 on its second week in the shops.
