The latest UK charts are in, and top of the pile this week is 505 and Rebellion's World War 2 shooter, Sniper Elite 3.

The sniper-themed game followed in the footsteps on the previous entry in the series by debuting at the top of the UK multi-format top twenty. Given the lack of depth to the release schedule in July, it'll be interesting to see if SE3 can better Sniper Elite V2's two week stay at the top.

Watch Dogs stays in second for another week, and EA Sports UFC (which last week landed in first) drops down to third. The second highest new entry this week is Grid: Autosport, which crossed the line in seventh. FIFA 14 continues to shift copies (No6), but 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil has dropped out of the top ten for the first time since its release.

Sniper Elite 3

Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is the third highest debut title and ended up in twelfth (the fourth - One Piece: Unlimited World Red - didn't make the top twenty and charted at No28). And the epic battle of the Minecrafts continues, with the Microsoft-published version of the game leapfrogging the Sony-published version of the same title.

REVIEW. Written by Mike Holmes

"While the campaign is shorter than before, Rebellion has done a decent job of fleshing out the game as a whole."
