Far Cry 3 is king of the jungle in last UK charts week of 2012

Far Cry 3 is king of the jungle in final UK charts week of 2012
Far Cry 3 hunted down the top spot in the UK's final week of software charts for 2012, gleefully kicking Call of Duty Black Ops 2 off its perch after six consecutive weeks at the top. Ubisoft's exotic adventure actually slipped in sales by 5 percent this week, but the promotional offers that took it to second place the week prior helped it go one better at the close of the year. FIFA 13 also clambered over Black Ops 2 as Treyarch's shooter dropped to third, while Hitman: Absolution also took a short tumble to fourth.

The only intruder in a largely familiar top ten is a returning old entry, with Forza Horizon racing up 11 places to 10th on the back of, you guessed it, more holiday discounts. As the UK charts gear up for another year of climbs, falls, disappointments and successes, you can reflect on the final top ten of 2012 after the break.

  1. Far Cry 3
