Crysis 3 takes down Colonial Marines

EA shooter enters UK software charts at number one

Crysis 3 has entered on the UK software charts at number 1, knocking Aliens: Colonial Marines down to 5. It was followed by slice and dice spin off Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, which appeared at 2, 5,500 sales behind the number 1.

The majority of Crysis 3 copies were sold on Xbox 360, at 57 per cent, while Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance fans made their purchase for PS3, with 61 per cent opting for the Sony console.

GfK Chart-Track points out that while having a new number 1 and 2 is a first for this year, both games fell short of the launch numbers Aliens and Dead Space 3 recently enjoyed.

I think TimeGate did that all on their own. Would be interesting to see the return rate on that game, if it wasn't for my brother having the game and us both playing co-op laughing at how piss poor the game is it would have been sold the day after it arrived. It reminds me of some films which are just so shit that they actually become funny.

Crysis 3 is all visuals. When you strip that away, the gameplay is very thin, with simple AI and basic gun combat, inside arenas (big square rooms dressed up) I wish developers would hone in the core gameplay and focus all resources and attention on that instead of aesthetics.

So a game with it's only strong point being looks beats a glitchy mess? Who would have thought?
