Brian Lara's entry at two with International Cricket 2005 doesn't quite manage to bowl out the shipwrecked animals of Madagascar, which clings to the top of the chart for a second week, while Fantastic 4 settles at three after last week's debut at eight.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, with the imminent release of the movie it's based on, is the only other new entry in the top 20, appearing at 16, while Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005 re-enters the top 20, moving another four places to 17 after its 19-place jump last week.

Many games have taken a fall from the top 20, including Halo 2 Multiplayer Map Pack down nine places to 26, Killer 7 dropping 13 to 28 and Formula 1 05 slipping 13 places to 29. Sid Meier's Pirates only just makes it into the top 40 with a re-entry at 38 following the release of the Xbox version.

New releases this week are limited so, while we're not expecting much in the way of new entries in next week's chart, we won't be surprised if Half-Life 2 (which was up 14 places to 25 this week) and Tiger Woods continue their progress back up the chart.
