Wie schon beim Vorgänger überzeugt Ecco auch hier wieder durch ein friedfertiges, schönes und atmosphärisches dichtes Spiel. Hat euch bereits der erste Teil gefallen, werdet ihr auch mit dem Nachfolger viel Spaß haben - Neulingen ist aber der Erstling ans Herz zu legen, da dieser in Sachen Schwierigkeitsgrad eine Ecke leichter und somit einsteigerfreundlicher ist.
GamePro (US)
Don't be lulled by Ecco's beauty: This game's strategic challenge may frustrate younger gamers. Passwords help, but plan on diving in headfirst and staying under water for a long time. This game's worth the effort, though, because Ecco's definitely back with a splash.
Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
Ecco appears to be a decent game for the Game Gear. The graphics, animation and most certainly the colors are very impressive. However, the quest left me hanging as to exactly what I was supposed to do. The control of Ecco 2: Tides of Time doesn't match the overall quality of the game, hurting it significantly. Judging the game is a bit difficult. I didn't really care for it, but Ecco fans might.
