It is hardly a surprise, following ludicrously long queues and record breaking first day sales, but GTA V has taken the top spot in the weekly top 20 all platform charts. Pro Evo 14 was a new entry in 2nd while awesome zombie game The Last Of Us rose back into 3rd place and last week’s number 1 Saints Row IV slipped to 4th. Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist took the final spot in the top 5.
1 (-) – GTA V
GTA V sets a whole new level for the sandbox genre, ripping apart the previous levels set by earlier games in the popular Rockstar franchise. The game is not only massive but beautiful and any earlier complaints especially regarding the combat system and the occasional glitch have been totally ironed out. GTA V is likely to stick to or very close to the top of the charts for a while now.
2 (-) – Pro Evolution Soccer 2014
Pro Evolution games are typically considered the lower quality alternative to FIFA and usually with good reason too. There are glitches that must be overlooked and numerous problems that need to be overcome to enjoy the benefits that almost certainly do exist. The 2014 version of the title represents decent improvements but you still need to get past the negatives to enjoy the positives.
3 (-) – The Last Of Us
The Last Of Us is a zombie survivor title available for the PS3. It is heavily character based and you will genuinely love the characters that you play and support. There is violence but it’s kind of essential to the plot and the game.
4 (1) – Saints Row IV
Saints Row IV is an awesome and incredible game that is definitely not considered suitable for anybody that is under the age of 18, might have a weak heart, belongs to any major religion, or is offended by anything whatsoever. However, if you enjoy sandbox games that borrow from virtually every other title ever made then you will love it.
5 (4) – Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist
Tom Clancy Slinter Cell games had gone backwards in recent years. They stepped away from the stealth style of killing and were never as good when attempting to take on typical first person shooters. In Blacklist, the series has gone back to its silent and stealthy roots and both the game and series benefit greatly for that.
