Not even Batman could hold off a bunch of Olympians. At least not on the UK video game retail charts for the week ended July 28.

Amid the start of this year's Olympic Games, Warner Bros. and Traveller's Tales' Lego Batman 2 finally relinquished its five-week reign at the top of Chart-Track's UK charts to Sega's London 2012: The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games.

Sega's other Olympic title, Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, came in at number three, just below Batman.

Sega's Olympic video games are not new releases -- Mario & Sonic has been on the market in the UK since November last year, and London 2012 has been out since June this year.

Below are Chart-Track's all-platforms sales charts, which include unit sales of all versions of a given title, and the individual platform charts, which treat individual SKUs separately.
