Brian Lara has record breaking second innings

01/Aug/2005

Codemasters’ ‘Brian Lara International Cricket 2005’ (PS2/XB/PC) bowls out Activision’s ‘Madagascar’, stepping up to the crease to become the first cricket game to make it to No1 in the All Formats Entertainment Chart since this chart began back in 1997.


Activision fills the next two places with multi-format ‘Madagascar’ dropping to No2 and ‘Fantastic 4’ heroically holding on to No3. Movie licenses now account for 3 of the Top 5 games with Take 2’s ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ capitalising on the release of the film last week, climbing 11 places from No16 to No5. Codemasters cap a great week by claiming the only new entry to make it into the All Formats Top 40 - ‘Worms 4: Mayhem’ developed by Yorkshire independent stalwart Team 17 debuting at No25.
