UK Top 40: Dead Island defeats Deus Ex

Space Marine, Resistance 3 in top five.

Zombie survival title Dead Island has devoured last week's number one Deus Ex: Human Revolution to claim the UK chart's top spot.

Warhammer 40K: Space Marine entered close behind in second, while PlayStation 3 exclusive Resistance 3 entered fourth.

Nintendo remake Star Fox 64 3D entered in ninth while NHL 12 appeared in 12th.

Last week's other new entry, Kinect horror title Rise of Nightmares, could only muster a 37th placing.

Quirky 9/10 adventure El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron failed to make the top 40 altogether.

Against the deluge of new titles, Driver: San Francisco slipped into third. Deus Ex diminished to fifth. Codemasters shooter Bodycount, which launched last week in 36th place, disappeared altogether.

Zumba Fitness, Rugby World Cup, Lego Pirates and a budget-priced Gran Turismo 5 made up the rest of the top 10.
