There’s an air of recognisability in this week’s charts, as Call of Duty: Ghosts and FIFA 14 retain their first and second place along with Battlefield 4 in third. Gran Turismo 6 has entered the charts at number on its debut, which will prove deeply disappointing for developers.
1 (1) – Call Of Duty: Ghosts
Buy it for the multiplayer and you should find that the scant few new features will appeal, and the short single player campaign will not disappoint too much. Will gamers ever become disenchanted with the series for producing what is basically the same game over and over again?
2 (2) – FIFA 14
It’s football, it’s FIFA, and it too has been guilty of releasing the same game year after year. FIFA 14 is more simulation than ever before, and it of course features updated teams, but again it’s just FIFA.
3 (3) – Battlefield 4
Battlefield 4 takes most the best features from the last few Battlefield titles to create an explosive game with a massively destructible game world, and some intriguing multiplayer maps. It may not be ground-breaking, but there’s enough new features and enough of a refresh to suggest there was more effort put into the creation of this title.
4 (5) – Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is yet another instance of a game that doesn’t really offer anything new, in terms of gameplay, to the series. However, becoming a pirate crossed with assassin and battling in your pirate ship is something a little different.
5 (7) – Grand Theft Auto V
GTA V is massive, and we love it. The fighting has been upgraded, even the driving has been improved, and the world is by far the best anything the GTA world has ever had to offer to gamers.
