Charts: Mario Kart still leading pack

Full top 40 and rubbish puns inside.

Mario Kart has held onto the top spot in the UK All Formats Chart for a second week running.

Its ghost was chased eagerly by the legs of Mario & Sonic at the Olympics at two, and the shiny tyres of Gran Turismo 5: Prologue at three.

Sporty pair Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 and SEGA Superstars Tennis followed at four and five respectively, with shooters Rainbow Six Vegas 2 and Call of Duty 4 next in line.

Fresh entry UEFA Euro 2008 managed to take eight - probably feeling the sales-glut from England not qualifying for the competition.

Dr. Kawashima climbed back into the charts with Brain Training at nine, while Guitar Hero III and its frustrating final set-list rounded off the pile at 10.

New entries of note were Time Crisis 4 and its PS3 light-gun at 24, plus another forgettable Sims 2 expansion to do with kitchens and bathrooms at 20.

Big movers were Rayman Raving Rabbids up from 32 to 22, while Dark Sector fell from 13 to 26 and Viking: Battle for Asgard tumbled from 16 to 29.

Those fired from the list by the stubby finger of Sir Alan "Charts" Sugar were Bully: Scholarship Edition and MX vs. ATV Untamed.
