Ubisoft's medieval fighting game For Honor maintained its position at the top of the UK physical sales chart for the week ending February 25th, holding off competition from new release Halo Wars 2.
Microsoft's strategy game finishes at No.2 in its debut week, with much of the remaining top 10 places filled with familiar games: Grand Theft Auto V continues to chart well at No.3 while FIFA 17 comes in at No.4 for the third week in a row. Sniper Elite 4 drops from No.2 to No.5 in its second week on sale to round off the top five.
For Honor's performance this week follows a strong critical reception in the days after launch. GameSpot awarded the game an 8/10 in their review; Matt Espineli said the game offers "some of the most satisfying multiplayer melee fighting conceived in recent years.". Halo Wars 2, meanwhile, launched this week without a ranked multiplayer mode. Reviews for the Xbox One and PC-exclusive RTS title were mixed, with GameSpot critic Kallie Plagge saying the game "runs out of steam quickly." You can more in our full Halo Wars 2 review.
