UK charts: Tiger Woods roars to top

Too Human features. Full top 40 inside.

The latest and acclaimed instalment in the Tiger Woods PGA Tour series has roared to the top of the UK all-formats top 40 this week.

The 2009 edition marks the first time EA has ever scored a debut hole in one with the sports game, with sales matched fairly evenly across lead Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii platforms.

Microsoft also enjoys some of the spotlight as Too Human, the first instalment in the Xbox 360-exclusive action RPG series from Silicon Knights, stakes a claim at eight - despite middling reviews.

Otherwise the picture is a familiar one: Mario Kart Wii at two, Wii Fit at three, Carnival: Funfair Games up slightly to four and Wii Play at five.

Then comes Mario & Sonic at the Olympics at six, Big Beach Sports at seven, Beijing 2008 at nine and Wall-E rounding the list off at 10.

The Sims 2: Apartment Life expansion pack just missed the top flight and finished at 11, while Scrabble Interactive: 2007 Edition has enjoyed a resurgence to finish at 35. Chart-Track points to retailer "buy one get one free" promotions as helping shift the PC and DS game.
