Insomniac's Fuse bombs in UK chart, only managing 37th on debut

GRID 2 takes first, despite selling 29% less in opening week than original

Codemasters' driving sim sequel GRID 2 has come out on top of this week's struggle for the UK charts despite selling 29 per cent less in its opening week than its predecessor - which debuted in second place five years ago.

FIFA 13, in second place, had a resurgence of sales thanks to the UK schools half-term break, which pushed retail numbers upwards by 17 per cent. The rest of the top five is made up from Dead Island: Riptide, Far Cry 3 and last week's number one: Resident Evil Revelations.

The only other new entry in the week's top 40 is a very disappointing 37th for Insomniac's Fuse, the studio which produced the Resistance series. The title has struggled with critical reception following a high-profile marketing campaign.
