Assault on Dark Athena crashes in at #2

Riddick's latest adventure proves popular with us Brits as the only new Top 40 entry.

Atari will be celebrating this morning after Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena hit number 2 in the UK Top 40.

Given the only other 360 games released were Rock Revolution and Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2, it's no real surprise that Assault on Dark Athena was the only game to hit the top 40.

What was a surprise was Assault on Dark Athena's high chart position, given its predecessor - Escape From Butcher Bay on Xbox - didn't set the charts alight. Good news for Atari and Starbreeze then. Let's see how long Vin Diesil's new found star power lasts!
