EA's Medal of Honor: Warfighter has entered the All Formats All Prices UK video game chart at No.1, knocking FIFA 13 off the top spot.

Warfighter has, however, failed to live up to the first week sales of the 2010 reboot, which holds the first week sales record for the franchise.

FIFA 13 might have dropped one place to No.2, but the game is approximately 20 per cent ahead of FIFA 12 in terms of sales after five weeks.

Forza Horizon is new at No.3, followed by Skylanders Giants which drops to No.4 and Dishonored at No.5.

Other new entries inside the Top 10 are Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask at No.8 and Mind Candy's Moshi Monsters: Moshlings Theme Park at No.9.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

Medal of Honor Warfighter claiming the No.1 spot is good PR for EA's critically panned shooter, but actual sales figures will determine if the title is deemed a success or failure.

We fully expect Assassin's Creed 3 to claim the No.1 spot this time next week, but the Top 5 could well be bursting with new entries including Football Manager 2013, Need for Speed Most Wanted and WWE 13.

I think half of the reason (and problem) Medal of Hono(u)r did so well was because most publications only got review code within a day before release. By the time a lot reviews had gotten out about the game being bad, pre orders had probably already been shipped. I doubt it was all the customers fault to blame in this case.

I'm fairly sure if reviews had gotten out earlier (and if EA weren't so sneaky) MoH:WF probably wouldn't of done so well...

Probably sold pretty badly and it looks like it deserved it. I'm not saying Call of Duty deserves 20m+ sales a year, but at least the biggest gaming audience is still somewhat discerning about quality.

I played MoH 2010 and it was dire. EA should forget about this genre and do something else. They have no hope of making a dent in Call of Duty's mind share after the last few after the last few half-arsed attempts they've made.

Very bad news for gamers.

EA get away with releasing a broken game again and they will do their crime once again methinks.

Sheeples... and they inform the sort of games publishers want to put out, which is rather sickening.

Very dissapointed XCom has also seen such a drop - I had hoped that might be a slow but long and steady burner...

YouTube Video ... then it would be Forza at the top spot.
