One of the things we first did when I started The Vita Lounge was weekly UK sales charts, so I thought I could start doing them again as I know some of you like sales statistics and performance, or just like knowing how titles are performing. So kicking right off we have this week’s top 10.
Top of the pile is the fantastic Football Manager Classic 2014 from Sports Interactive/Sega. A portable version of the PC classic mode, fully compatible with the PC version and quite brilliant, it’s nice to see it performing well and staying top for a second week.
Climbing a spot into second space and keeping with the football theme is FIFA 14
which despite being essentially the same game as FIFA 13 is probably the best non-managerial football game the Vita currently has. World cup fever must be taking over!
In third place we have the first of three Lego titles with the most recent in the series, The Hobbit dropping a spot. Our review is incoming courtesy of Brad so we can give you our thoughts then. Have you played it? Let us know what you think in the comments.
Final Fantasy X HD Remaster continues to hold strong in the charts in fourth place. Jon couldn’t get enough of it when he reviewed it and proclaims it as the best port ever. Have you bought it yet? Two classic titles for the price of one, lovingly re-crafted?
In fifth spot we have another re-master which Jon is currently getting to grips with in the Sly Cooper Trilogy. Expect our review later this week.
Swinging up the charts in sixth spot and probably dude to the release of the sequel in the cinema we have The Amazing Spider-Man, which Kyle was quite fond of despite a few issues. Have you seen the sequel yet? Should we have got that game instead of this?
Dropping two places this week is Invizimals: The Alliance which I have seen the advert for on TV more times than I can remember in the last week. Brad thinks “it has a fun combat system which makes for a game that has a lot to offer, but its heavy use of augmented reality can be a big turn off for many.”
In eighth we have arguably one of the stand out titles of the system, Killzone Mercenary. Hasn’t everyone bought this yet? It’s amazing. Make sure you grab the Botzone DLC if you haven’t already, especially if you are rubbish at the game like I am.
Rounding up the top ten we have two Lego titles. The Lego Movie Videogame is quite enjoyable, but suffers from the same limitations as the other Vita Lego conversions and I’ll have my review up later this evening, whilst Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes completes the top ten. Vita owners love their Lego games it seems, although they are very simple platinum!
