Sleeping Dogs has held its place at the top of the UK charts for a second week, pipping other recent released Darksiders 2 and Transformers: Fall of Cybertron to the post.

Sleeping Dogs is currently sitting at a Metascore of 80 on Xbox 360 and 82 on PS3, marking a victory for United Front Games and publisher Square-Enix. Activision dropped the game – which was then called True Crime: Hong Kong – for alleged budget reasons.
