Mafia II at number one in UK all-format chart

2K's open world shooter rides high despite mixed reviews

Mafia II has topped the UK all-format charts on its week of release, despite seeing review scores which ranged from 94 to 40 per cent.

2K's open world mob story shot straight in at number one, according to the figures released by Chart-Track, knocking last week's first place game, Kane & Lynch 2, down into second place.

Despite this initial sales success, outspoken analyst Michael Pachter had earlier claimed that Mafia II is "unlikely to achieve profitability" because of its half-decade development time.

Wii Sports Resort and Sniper: Ghost Warrior were the only titles to move up places in the top ten, whereas last week's number six game, Nintendo's Art Academy, has dropped out of the top 40 all together.
