Dead Space 3 released last week and, while we've personally been enjoying it, the game has soared straight to the top of the charts in the United Kingdom, surpassing the likes of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, FIFA 13 and Far Cry 3 while unseating the previous #1 game Ni no Kuni.
As you're undoubtedly familiar, Dead Space 3 follows the story of Isaac Clarke as he battles the Necromorphs on a brand new planet, Tau Volantis. Joining him on the icy tundra of a planet is John Carver, a soldier with a very troubling past that plagues him throughout the game. When a second player joins in for some co-op action, they play as Carver.
Last week's UK charts were littered with shooters, as you can see:
