CAPTION: “Hohoho! All herald my return to the top 10, weak brained, foolish mortals…”
01: CALL OF DUTY: WORLD AT WAR
Well, World at War has certainly proved the Modern Warfare naysayer’s wrong as gamers show that taking the leap back to WWII isn’t a problem for them at all. With its new breed of multiplayer and interesting co-op campaign, World at War deserves this month’s top spot.
CAPTION: Mnyaaaaaow…. BOOM… Ratatatatatat… Playground war sounds are still the best.
03: FIFA 09
Illustrating the fall from grace suffered by PES, Fifa 09 continues to beat it in the charts. Has the fact that EA uses official licenses got anything to do with it? Or is it the excellent ‘Be a Pro’ mode? Either way, Fifa rides high in third spot, pushing PES down to sixth.
CAPTION: “WHO ARE YA? WHO ARE YA?” Oh, it’s Peter Cech. Our mistake, the head gear threw us…
08: WII PLAY
We call it the Christmas effect. How else can you explain Wii Play lasting so long in the chart? It’s opened up a new world in the casual market, but when we see Gears of War 2 fall out the top 10, then isn’t something terribly wrong?
CAPTION: Wii Play is, amazingly, on its 93rd consecutive week in the charts. Are we missing something?
The excellent Chrono Trigger update gets the recognition it deserves in its home country and even 360 makes an appearance…
1: Machi e Ikouyo: Doubutsu no Mori – Wii
2: Chrono Trigger – DS
3: Kidou Senshi Gundam: Gundam Vs. Gundam – PSP
4: Last Remnant – 360
5: Saka-Tsuku DS: Touch and Direct – DS
The Wii dominates the American chart this month, as the Yanks try to burn off ol’ Momma Mae’s apple pie.
1: Wii Sports – Wii
2: Wii Fit – Wii
3: Call of Duty: World at War – 360
4: New Super Mario Bros – DS
5: Wii Play – Wii
WATCH OUT FOR…
