Despite a less than stellar promotion period, Dead Island: Riptide has debuted at number one in the UK games chart. The zombie title appears to have accumulated less than half the launch week sales of the original game, but still manages to come out on top.

Injustice: Gods Among Us drops down to second, while Capcom’s Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen nabs third. Namco’s Star Trek title arrives in fourth, with Tomb Raider and Bioshock: Infinite falling to fifth and sixth respectively. FIFA 13 props them all up in seventh.

It’s worth noting Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut has only just managed to chart inside the top 40. Access Games’ cult title sneaks in at number 38. Here’s the top 10:

1. Dead Island Riptide
2. Injustice: Gods Among Us
3. Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen
4. Star Trek
5. Tomb Raider
6. Bioshock Infinite
7. FIFA 13
8. Lego City Undercover
9. Defiance
10. Luigi’s Mansion 2
