It's another legendary week for Eidos as Lara Croft picks off the competition to retain the top spot, new entries from several publishers failing to make an impact on the re-shuffled top ten listing.

Vivendi's animated movie tie-in Ice Age 2: The Meltdown manages to freeze out the competition, climbing two to claim second place and pushing The Godfather down to fourth, while EA's urban soccer title FIFA Street 2 holds its place in third for the third consecutive week.

Xbox 360 and PSP versions of Football Manager 2006 give Sega a re-entry at number five, and there's no change for Nintendo as continued sales of Animal Crossing: Wild World on the DS keeps the title firmly locked in at number six.

Relentless Software's Buzz: The Big Quiz enjoys a bonus round, climbing one place from eight to seven, and Ubisoft gets a boost from the DVD launch and some heavy retail promotion, as everyone's favourite primate jumps seven places from fifteen to eight in King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter loses some ground, slipping four places from fourth to ninth, facing a new attack from the rear in the shape of EA's Battlefield 2: Modern Combat, which enters the chart at number ten following the release of the enhanced Xbox 360 version.

Elsewhere in the charts, Square Enix' latest RPG, Dragon Quest: Journey of the Cursed King debuts at number six in the PS2 chart, reaching nineteen in the all-formats listing, while Sony's latest karaoke effort SingStar Rocks makes a noise in the budget sector with a number three debut, but that still only puts it in at eighteen in the all-formats chart.

New releases due this week ought to shake things up a little, as Square Enix launches the Xbox 360 debut of Final Fantasy XI, while PC fans gain the expansion pack. Sony prepares for a wet weekend with SOCOM 3: US Navy Seals, and the Nintendo DS gains a slew of innovative new titles and an old classic re-invented, with the launch of Elektroplankton, Tamagotchi Connection Corner Shop and Tetris DS.
