This week's UK sales charts have undergone a bit of a reshuffle after three games debuted in the top five.

Dead Island: Riptide proved once again that people just love killing zombies, as it stormed straight to the top of the pile, pushing past last week's number one, Injustice: Gods Among Us.

Warner Bros. superhero scrapper still finished a respectable second, and sits above the other two new entries, Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen and Star Trek, which finished third and fourth respectively.

Tomb Raider continued its strong showing at retail and retains its place in the top five despite dwindling sales. Last week's second placed title, Bioshock Infinite, dropped down to sixth, and FIFA 13 drops again, this time only making seventh.

Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins, the 3DS-exclusive, entered the chart at number eight, and Fire Emblem: Awakening dropped ten whole places, ending up in thirteenth.
