Cheer up, there's always next week

Despite getting off to a flying sales start elsewhere around the world, Metroid: Other M has faltered in its first week on sale in the UK, coming in at number 12.

With a high-profile advertising campaign, generally positive reviews – including our 9/10 rating – and the always-reliable Metroid name, it's hard to see where things went wrong.

Fellow new release Tetris Party Deluxe had a similarly inauspicious debut, in at number 23.
