UK CHARTS: Rainbow Six sneaks to the top

The popularity of the Tom Clancy franchise continues with its fifth number one in the ChartTrack All Formats Top 40, in the form of Rainbow Six Vegas 2.

Other number one’s in the Clancy series includes Splinter Cell, Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow, Rainbow Six Lockdown and Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2.
