UK chart: Kane & Lynch 2 top dog

IO's gritty shooter does the business.

Square Enix's third-person shooter Kane & Lynch 2 has entered the UK all-formats chart at number one.

It pushed last week's top dog Toy Story 3 into second.

K&L2 saw an almost equal split of sales across the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

56 per cent bought the gritty shooter on Xbox 360, 41 per cent on PlayStation 3 and 2 per cent on PC.

IO's game appears to have deflected mixed review scores, although strong promotion on telly will have contributed heavily towards its sales success.

Eurogamer gave it 4/10.

Elsewhere, Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption drops to third, LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 holds fast in fourth, Ubisoft's Just Dance moves up one to fifth, and DS game Art Academy drops one place to sixth.

Super Mario Galaxy 2, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Dance on Broadway and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 make up the rest of the top 10.
