Ruffian Games and Microsoft Game Studios' open world shooter Crackdown 2 debuted at the top of the UK sales charts this week, becoming the companyís first game to hit the top of the charts in 2010.

For the week ending July 10, tracking firm Chart Trackís data revealed Travelerís Talesí Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 and Rockstarís Red Dead Redemption in the top three for the all-platforms list, which includes unit sales of all versions of a given title.

Ubisoftís Dance on Broadway jumped to number four, and THQís UFC 2010: Undisputed once again entered the top 10. Titles such as Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11, however, declined in sales compared to the previous week.

2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 remained at numbers five and eight, respectively, with sales remaining relatively unchanged from last week.
