England may have triumphed in the second Ashes test, but it hasn’t helped Brian Lara retain his crown as last week’s chart leader - knocked from the top spot by Activision’s resurgent Madagascar.
After slipping to number two last week, Madagascar managed to hold off both Take 2’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Codemasters’ Brian Lara International Cricket 2005, which fell to second and third in the batting order respectively.
Down one place in fourth is the third summer movie tie-in of the top five, Activision’s Fantastic Four. THQ’s Destroy All Humans continues its interstellar chart performance by climbing one spot to fifth, whilst EA’s war franchise Medal of Honor: European Assault slips to sixth place.
Another EA title, Cricket 2005, holds firm in seventh whilst Eidos’ Lego Star Wars pulls off a resurrection worthy of Anakin Skywalker himself, climbing from 10th to eighth. Juiced also shows a remarkable amount of staying power, slipping only one spot to ninth place whilst the mighty Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas hangs on at number 10.
