UK top 40: Lego Batman 2 perches on top

Skyrim levels up ahead of this week's Dawnguard release.

"I'm Lego Batman, too!"

The brilliant Lego Batman 2 has swooped down and taken the UK video game chart by storm, claiming the top spot all for its bricky masked self.

Lego Batman 1 only managed to debut at number two, four years ago in 2008.

FIFA 12 dropped to two, Future Soldier to three, Max Payne 3 to four and Battlefield 3 held fifth.

Lollipop Chainsaw hung on in there at sixth, ahead of Mario & Sonic Who Are Already At the London Olympic Games in seventh.

Skyrim launched itself up from 23rd to eighth ahead of the enticing Dawnguard expansion release (26th June), and Sniper Elite V2 and FIFA Street rounded the chart out in ninth and 10th.

New Civilization 5 expandalone Gods and Kings marched dutifully into 16th.

Kinect game Steel Battalion was nowhere to be seen - not in the all-formats top 40, nor in the Xbox 360-specific top 30. For it to not chart anywhere, it must have performed terribly.

The full top 40 is posted in full, below.
