Devil May Cry 5 has enjoyed a strong start on the UK physical sales chart, topping the all-format list in its debut week. For the week ending March 9, sales monitor Chart-Track says Capcom’s hack-and-slash game displaces the previous No.1, Anthem, becoming the first in the series to top the chart since DmC in 2013.
Below Devil May Cry 5, Red Dead Redemption 2 finishes at No.2, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe claiming the final podium position at No.3. The week’s only other new entry is Square Enix’s stealth game Left Alive, which sneaks in at No.39.
We enjoyed Devil May Cry 5 here at GameSpot, with critic Matt Espineli awarding the game a 9/10. “DMC5 thrives on the stylistic and mechanical prowess of its predecessors,” he wrote in our Devil May Cry 5 review. “It sticks to tradition above all else, pursuing a few ambitious new ideas along the way, but mostly maintaining the series’ focus on intricate fighting systems and campy bravado. Rarely does the game stumble, consistently leveraging its spectacle and mechanical depth to push aside any small frustrations. All the while, the story exudes a charismatic charm that keeps you constantly intrigued as you’re refining your skills. DMC5 proves the series can still be brilliant and imaginative without compromising its longest-held traditions.”
