Deep Silver's zombie RPG Dead Island has managed to fend off the horde and keep atop of the UK charts, standing ground in front of THQ's Warhammer 40k: Space Marine, which continues to hold the No. 2 spot.

Sony's Resistance 3 blasts its way up the chart to third, knocking Ubisoft's Driver: San Francisco down to fourth in the process, while fifth-place Deus Ex: Human Revolution manages to keep Zumba Fitness locked down at No. 6.

No new entries to the top 10 this week, and only one new entry to the entire top 40; Sony's God Of War Collection II, which hacks its way in at No. 35.

Here's the UK Interactive Entertainment Association's complete top ten for the week ending September 17th, 2011:

  1. Dead Island
  2. Warhammer: 40k: Space Marine
  3. Resistance 3
  4. Driver: San Francisco
  5. Deus Ex: Human Revolution
  6. Zumba Fitness
  7. Lego Pirates of the Caribbean
  8. Rugby World Cup 2011
  9. Lego Harry Potter
  10. Cars 2

I bought DeusEx and Driver:SanFrancisco recently (got some trade-in's so I bought them at the same time), and it's Driver that's been in the XBox the most of the two of them. I'm actually really surprised how much good fun it is - even when I'm hugely off the pace compared to other people on the leaderboards (I keep expecting to get passed by Top Gear's Captain Slow … yes, I'm that bad[/i).

Maybe I'm just at the right age - but the references to those old cop show's in the 70's and 80's just make me smile. Pretty sure it'd be on my top 5 games of this year - that said I've not bought many of the “big name” titles.

Zombie bashing doesn't really interest me at all, so Dead Island won't be being bought anytime soon - but it's interesting to see that there's two “Lego” games in the top ten. I'm sure I saw some comment about them being strictly “niche” products.
