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.
