Ghost Recon: Breakpoint is this week’s big new release, but the Ubisoft shooter is unable to usurp FIFA 20 at the top of the UK physical sales chart for the week ending October 5. EA’s sports behemoth finishes at No.1 once again, meaning Breakpoint is forced to settle for a No.2 debut.
Much of the chart remains unchanged, with Borderlands 3 and Gears 5 remaining at No.3 and No.4, respectively, while The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening slips from No.2 last week to No.5 this. Aside from Ghost Recon, the only new release is Ghostbusters The Video Game: Remastered, which launches at No.6.
Breakpoint has experienced a somewhat negative critical reception since its launch, including a 4/10 in GameSpot’s verdict. “There’s some surprising fun to be had stealthily infiltrating enemy compounds and playing with friends, but Breakpoint is still a generic and distinctly sub-par game,” wrote our critic, Richard Wakeling. “It’s essentially every Ubisoft open-world game rolled into one, failing to excel in any one area or establish its own identity. Breakpoint is a messy, confused game and a ghost of the series’ former self.” Read more in our full Ghost Recon: Breakpoint review-in-progress.
