LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens Review 1

Making it three weeks in a row, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens finished in 1st place in the UK last week, holding off a resurgent Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, which rose 152% thanks to a retailer’s promotion.

“The only other LEGO title to spend more consecutive weeks at No1 is LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes with 5 weeks back in 2012,” GfK Chart-Track adds.

Those retailer sales also helped many other titles re-enter the top 20, with Batman: Arkham Knight up 113% and placing in 13th, and Guitar Hero Live up 789% and placing in 15th.

In terms of new releases, there was just Monster Hunter Generations, which debuted in 3rd.
