UK top 40: Portal 2 places first

Mortal Kombat secures second.

Valve's puzzle-based adventure Portal 2 has entered the UK top 40 in the top spot.

Mortal Kombat's skull-crunching reboot was beaten into second. Operation Flashpoint: Red River, the week's other big new entry, ended the period in a respectible sixth.

Sony shooter SOCOM Special Forces was left out of the celebrations, however. It slinked to a meagre 28th placing. High Voltage's Wii-exclusive FPS washed up without an invite to the preceedings altogether. It only arrived at 26th on the Wii-specific chart.

Twice chart-topping title Zumba Fitness stepped down to fourth place as Call of Duty: Black Ops leap-frogged its way back up into third.

LEGO Star Wars was shoved down to fifth, while FIFA 11 and Crysis 2 filled out seventh and eighth, respectively.

Chocaholic-friendly Wii Fit Plus surged back up the charts into ninth. After 78 weeks, the game has been given a major new marketing campaign from Nintendo.

Elsewhere in the top flight, THQ's Homefront battled the tide of new releases to cling on to tenth.
