Mixed reviews don't prevent IO's action sequel from storming to the top.
GfK ChartTrack reports that Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days has entered the All Formats All Prices video game chart at No.1, kicking Toy Story 3 down one place to No.2.
The first game in the series, Kane & Lynch: Dead Men, managed a high of No.14.
Elsewhere there's little change, though Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands is up eleven places to No.8 and Mass Effect 2 climbed 13 places to No.12.
Kane & Lynch 2's stay at the top is likely to be short lived, however. Next week sees the release of 2K's Mafia II, likely to pull in a strong audience on its debut.
