There's little change at the top of the UK all-formats chart this week, as Super Smash Bros. Brawl continues to fight off opposition from Battlefield: Bad Company at two and LEGO: Indiana Jones at three.

Below them is a slew of sports games gaining popularity what with all the Olympics, tennis and general trend towards health and fitness. Salads in McDonald's indeed.

There's Big Beach Sports at four, Beijing 2008 at five, Top Spin 3 at six, Wii Fit at seven, Mario & Sonic at the Olympics at eight, and Wii Play at nine.

Rounding the list off at 10 was a five-place jump for The Bourne Conspiracy. Big-hitters Grand Theft Auto IV, Mario Kart Wii and Metal Gear Solid 4 all fell from the top flight to 13, 14, and 15, respectively.

New entries were rather scarce this week. The highest was a re-entry for Unreal Tournament III at 18 thanks to the just released Xbox 360 version.

Meanwhile, Buzz! Quiz TV only managed to debut at 22. A disappointing start perhaps, but it's likely to be a stayer.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon duo, Explorers of Time/Darkness, managed also failed to hit high - reaching 30 and 35, respectively.

The biggest climber this week was movie tie-in Kung Fu Panda up from 40 to 16, while those doing the tumbling were Alone in the Dark down 17 to 29, and Civilization Revolution down from 24 to 36.
