Train2Game brings you the Game Charts again this week with Tomb Raider still sitting at the top, God of War: Ascension was unable to knock the reboot of the top spot but came in at number 2. Number 3 is a new entry with a Starcraft 2 expansion pack and Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 is the final new entry at number 4.
At the other end of the Top 20, the new Naruto game has plummeted from number 3 to just clinging on at number 20 and after only a few weeks, Aliens: Colonial Marines has left the charts.

The latest God of War title for PlayStation 3 is a prequel, which will introduce multiplayer to the series for the first time.
“That’s right. God of War: Ascension will feature a ground-breaking new online multiplayer mode,” said Pappy.
“We wouldn’t do multiplayer in God of War unless we knew we could do it right. That’s why I’m extremely excited to finally be able to talk publicly about it and share all the gory details with you live. I even have some exclusive gameplay footage to share with you, so be sure to tune in to see it all live.” he added.
