Despite an influx of bad reviews, Duke Nukem Forever has clawed its way into the top spot of the UK's videogame charts for all consoles.

It appears the perennial bombardment of hype has paid off and although fans have waited 14 years to play the bloody thing, interest hasn't faded. It now sits on top of the all-formats charts, having knocked LA Noire off its perch, UKIE reports
