UK chart: F1 dethrones Halo: Reach

New: Dead Rising 2! FFXIV! Civ5! GH:WOR!

Codemasters' new racing game F1 2010 dethroned Halo: Reach to become the UK's best selling game last week.

It's the first F1 game to reach the top in nine years. It's also Codemasters' first attempt at the licence.

Halo: Reach was forced into second, but stayed ahead of another big new entry Dead Rising 2 in third.

PC exclusive Civilization V arrived in fourth, and Activision Blizzard's new Guitar Hero game, Warriors of Rock, debuted sixth. Sports Champions was sandwiched in-between in fifth.

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands was seventh, Mafia II eighth and Toy Story 3 ninth.

This week's final newcomer, MMO Final Fantasy XIV Online, was 10th. Only the Collector's Edition was released last week, however - the standard game will be released on Thursday.
