Is it officially the summer? Even if the heatwave is rolling from June into July, the UK retail business waits for no season as this week introduces two new titles into the charts. Making it’s return to #1 and showcasing that exclusivity isn’t barring anyone from enjoying Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy which released on the Xbox One, PC and making its debut on the Nintendo Switch. The Crew 2, developed by Ivory Tower, marks a new entry for Ubisoft back on the UK charts at #2 after they’ve been quiet on the charts for a while now.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is proving to be a valuable asset to anyone’s collection across any platform hailing as an incredible success from veteran gamers to critics worldwide. It’s currently rated 10/10 on Steam and has a 76 percent rating on Metacritic for its Nintendo Switch counterpart. If you haven’t played any of the original Crash Bandicoot games, well a copy is waiting for you on the UK shelves!
The Crew 2 is an interesting sequel from Ubisoft. Incorporating the user to control additional vehicular models including motorcycles, boats & airplanes. Infusing open-world and online interactivity together, Ubisoft is determined to get more gamers online and playing their latest racing title. Although being mixed in critical response from various different outlets, it currently holds three aggregate review percentages – on Metacritic for its platforms: 69 percent on the PS4 – 65 percent on the PC – 67% on the Xbox One. Although enhanced for the Xbox One X at 4K 60FPS, it’s still not enough to indulge some critics into the game’s overall presentation. We’re enjoying The Crew 2’s breathtaking open world colors and graphics and I’m sure you’ll too if you pick up a copy in the future.
Elsewhere on the UK Gaming Charts, last week’s #1 Mario Tennis Aces slips into the fourth position while Ubisoft also sneaks a tenth entry with Far Cry 5. As always, Grand Theft Auto V still continues to dominate the top ten despite its original release date.
