Gears of War: Judgment is the new UK number one this week, followed by the poorly-reviewed Walking Dead: Survival Instinct. The delay in review code seems to have worked after all.

Gears of War: Judgment has released straight in at number one, following a string of positive reviews. You can check out our review score round-up here.

You can also check out my appraisal of People Can Fly’s shooter here.

Meanwhile, the poorly-received Walking Dead: Survival Instinct comes in at third. There were no reviews of the game ahead of launch because we’ve heard that most outlets didn’t receive code and many had to buy it themselves at launch.

I questioned why we hadn’t played or seen much of it at all when I interviewed developer Terminal Reality. Read what they had to say here.

Finally, newcomer Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate has come in at seventh place. It’s a wonder RPG that fans of Dark Souls and those kinds of games will surely love. You can check out my ‘Noob’s Journey’ blog on the game – with gameplay videos – here.

Now then, that chart in full:

1. Gears of War: Judgment
2. Tomb Raider
3. The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct
4. FIFA 13
5. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2
6. God of War: Ascension
7. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
8. SimCity
9. Far Cry 3
10. Black Ops 2

What do you think of the above?
