Welcome to my Crash Bandicoot 2 Cortex Strikes Back review! It’s another episode of New Game Plus! Will my Crash Bandicoot 2 review fall victim to nostalgia goggles, or with the remasted of the N Sane Trilogy help me give our favorite Pig-Mouse a new spin?
We have an update on the “ruination” of the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Leaderboards, and it’s good news, it has been fixed with the offending hacked user’s stats removed from the global leaderboard stats. For further checking, it is recommended that you check your copy of N. Sane in the leaderboards section of any level you like to check, since this hasn’t been officially confirmed by Sony/Activision.
P.S. I am fully aware of the whole “unannounced” project shenanigans.
This report is a bit late and it should’ve been included as part of the big December announcement where Activision has announced that “Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is the “bestselling” Remake in PS4 History“, since Daniel Ahmed, the industry analyst who confirmed the 2.5 million total sales figure, has gone on record to confirm an estimate from someone on ResetERA of between 3-4 million sales way back on December 20th.
This is in response to people reporting the 3 million sales figure from VGChartz, an unreliable sales reporting site that constantly changes between their guesses and announced figures without honesty or transparency.
We’re not sure if Activision will confirm the estimated number in their upcoming Feburary Conference Call/Q4 Reporting, but we’re hopeful that it would be there, at least…

[..] Perhaps most interestingly, however, is the list of the top 100 boxed games. While first and second place are very predictable – FIFA 18 and Call of Duty: WWII respectively – the top of the table has one or two surprising points to note. We’d imagine that even Activision is surprised at the performance of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, which outsold Destiny 2 to take 6th place on the list. [..]
At this point, what should we really say? We’re happy about how the bandicoot did in 2017, but even though he isn’t the 1st here, the role isn’t too shabby, just below Horizon and Uncharted is a pretty big thing when it came to the voting poll.
