UK chart: Lego blocked from top spot by COD

But Marvel at the series' best launch since 2008.

Lego Marvel Superheroes has been held back from the UK all-format chart top spot by Call of Duty: Ghosts.

Sales of Activision's shooter were down 76 per cent from last week's debut, but that was still enough to secure first place for a second week running.

That's not to say Lego Marvel sold poorly - far from it. The Avengers-infused adventure earned the series its best launch sales since 2008's Lego Indiana Jones.

Other debuts this week fared less well - PS3 platformer Ratchet & Clank Nexus turned up in 21st place, while the retail edition of XCOM expandalone Enemy Unknown charted in 25th.

FIFA 14 was third this week, Assassin's Creed 4 was fourth and Battlefield 4 was fifth.

GTA5, Minecraft, Skylanders, Batman Arkham Oranges and the latest Professor Layton puzzler rounded out the top 10.
