Guilt propels Wii Fit to the top of UK chart

LOTR Conquest nearly name-worthy.

Wii Fit has lunged to the top of the UK All-Formats chart this week as the public tries desperately to sweat out those Christmas puddings.

In fact, Nintendo's barged previous leader FIFA 09 all the way down to four, behind an entrenched Call of Duty: World at War at two and newcomer The Lord of the Rings: Conquest at three.

The latter managed an uninspiring 5/10 on Eurogamer, but does let players trample hobbits and play as the baddies.

Plus, Conquest was the only release of note last week beside the PC version of Mirror's Edge. That, incidentally, failed to spark a revival for the free-running title, which slips from 23 to 27.

Elsewhere, other than Wii Fit, apparently only Halo 3 (29) and Grand Theft Auto IV (18) picked up much this week, thanks to some handy retail deals.

That meant a largely un-shuffled running order: Wii Play at five, Need For Speed Undercover at six, Mario & Sonic at the Olympics at seven, Guitar Hero World Tour at eight, Carnival Funfair Games at nine and Brain Training at ten.

Maybe Skate 2 can cause an upset next week.
