Game Chronicles (Nov 22, 2002)
It’s a shame this game came out when it did. If Free Radical had managed to hold out another month or two they could have taken advantage of the recently added online components of all the next-gen systems. I can’t imagine playing TimeSplitters 2 online; well yes I can, and it sends shivers down my spine. We can only hope for online support in TimeSplitters 3 or whatever Free Radical has up their sleeve for their next big release.
IGN (Oct 11, 2002)
The game's single-player mode is marked by what I think is a weak attempt to bring a story to a series of unconnected levels. It also lacks innovation. There is nothing present in any of the levels that hasn't been done before in other first-person shooters. Indeed, some of the single-player stages in the game even come off as a tad shallow at points. But regardless of all these minor complaints, everything is forgiven, for what TimeSplitters 2 does correctly -- and there is a lot -- it does so with a level of polish and perfection that few competitors can match. From the unparalleled sense of speed and unmatched control accuracy and comfort to the amazing cooperative mode, unbelievably deep and brilliant multiplayer modes, sheer options, and MapMaker feature, there is some much to love about this game that it's hard to list it all.

Dit spel is zeker en vast een must have voor iedereen die van een goede shooter houdt. Een sterke story mode en verslavende challenges houden je gedurende een lange periode meer dan zoet. De optie om je eigen maps te maken in de mapmaker is meer dan een extraatje in de multiplayer. Kortom dit spel is zijn geld meer dan waard.

TimeSplitters 2 ist ein sehr umfangreicher First-Person-Shooter, der euch dank der verschiedenen Spielmodi und der packenden Atmosphäre für lange Zeit vor die Konsole fesselt. Präsentiert wird das Ganze mit einem schelmischen Augenzwinkern. Die coolen Spielmodi und Mehrspieler-Features sorgen dafür, dass TimeSplitters 2 sicher nicht zum Staubfänger im Regal verkommt.
Xbox fans who have grown tired and weary of Halo will find TimeSplitters 2 the perfect tonic.
Game Over Online (Nov 21, 2002)
Hell, even without the yearned for online feature (please include it for TimeSplitters 3! Oh please oh please oh please), TimeSplitters 2 is still a phenomenal title that you will want. With an improved story mode, loads of additional features and easy to learn controls, TimeSplitters 2 moves you past the trouble of having to learn complex rules and gets you right to the heart of the matter: fragging your enemies. This has to be one of the best titles that’s come out for every console this year, and you won’t be disappointed by slipping this game into your system. You may even find that it takes up permanent residence there.
GameSpot (Oct 08, 2002)
TimeSplitters 2 is all about options. While it isn't a huge, story-driven first-person shooter, it doesn't attempt to meet that goal. Instead it provides a top-notch collection of great modes, great maps, and solid weaponry. While it's in some ways disappointing that such an option-packed and fun multiplayer game doesn't have any online multiplayer capabilities, TimeSplitters 2 represents the ultimate evolution of the split-screen first-person shooter.
85 (Oct 21, 2002)
Après un premier volet très limité, Timesplitters 2 nous épate. Une ambiance qui nous accroche bien, un mode multi éclatant (livré avec éditeur de map) et une action prenante, il n'en faut pas plus pour convaincre même si dans le fond, TS 2 ne nous offre pas un gameplay révolutionnaire ni même très complexe. Maintenant, si vous attendiez un FPS classique dans le fond, mais diablement original (voire un peu barré) dans la forme, ne cherchez plus.
GameSpy (Nov 07, 2002)
TimeSplitters 2 really shines in its multiplayer mode. Up to four players can compete on a single console, more if you linkup multiple systems. Sadly there is no Xbox Live support. On the upside, you can use a third-party application, such as the GameSpy Tunnel to play TimeSplitters 2 online.
Gamereactor (Sweden) (May 07, 2003)
Det blir än en gång uppenbart att dessa Rare-avhoppare onekligen besitter en ovanligt god känsla för hur en förstapersonsskjutare på konsol bör se ut. Med en snabbare och mer påverkningsbar spelkontroll hade detta varit en solklar nia.
Netjak (Jul 10, 2003)
Finally, Timesplitters 2 brings back the cool map editing mode from the first game. While there have been a few improvements made to the map editor (such as the ability to create 'story' maps complete with objectives, enemies, and event triggers), the weaknesses that hampered the original map mode have been carried over.
