Deus Ex: Human Revolution takes gaming charts top spot
The sequel remained at number one in the chart for the second successive week.

First-person shooter Deus Ex: Human Revolution has retained its position at the top of the UK's all-format gaming charts, beating off competition from Driver: San Francisco.

The Square Enix and Eidos title, which debuted at number one last week, held on to the spot despite seeing its sales fall by 46 per cent over the seven days.

In Deus Ex: Human Revolution, gamers are cast as Adam Jensen, an ex-SWAT specialist chosen to oversee security at an experimental American biotechnology firm, which gets attacked by a black ops team.

Driver: San Francisco had to settle for second place, which still represents a strong return for the franchise, which has not seen a new release since Driver 76 on Sony PSP and Driver: Parallel Lines for Wii and PC, both of which came out in 2007.

Zumba Fitness and Rugby World Cup 2011, both from 505 Games, each dropped a place to third and fourth respectively, with Disney's Lego Pirates of the Caribbean in fifth.
