FIFA 13 has reclaimed the top spot on the UK all formats chart for the first time since week 42 of 2012.

EA's soccer game has now taken the No.1 spot on five separate occasions, and it has yet to drop out of the top four places since releasing 15 weeks ago, retail monitor Chart-Track reported today.
