Overkill Guns Down Chart Opposition

Sega's Guns 'n Gore Swear-fest; House of The Dead Overkill, has blasted away all other On-Rails Wii Shooters in the UK Charts, by managing to stay on there the longest out of any of them.

Headstrong Games' Wii Exclusive shooter, which stars series-regular Agent G, and Detective Issac Washington, has been able to stay within the UK All-formats Top 30 chart for 5 consecutive weeks, and in the Top 5 Wii Chart for equally as long. For a comparison, here's how the compilation of the second two games in the same series did;

The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return - All Formats Top 30;

1st Week of Release = 15th
2nd Week = 14th
3rd Week = 22nd
4th Week = 30th
5th Week = not ranked

(Game has sold around 200,000 copies in the UK alone)

Overkill's progress is considerably more impressive;

All Formats

1st Week = 10th
2nd Week = 9th
3rd Week = 16th
4th Week = 24th
5th Week = 20th

Wii Chart

1st Week = 3rd
2nd Week = 3rd
3rd Week = 3rd
4th Week = 5th
5th Week = 4th

(No sales estimates are available thus far, but Overkill is expected to comfortably outsell its duo counterpart)

Such results should be very good news for Wii fans, as it has been stated before that other publishers would be looking at Overkill's reception before green-lighting Mature-rated projects on Nintendo's White Wonder.

Are you among the crowd (like Yours Truly) that picked up a copy of Headstong's stylish shooting extravaganza, and if so what do you think of it?
