An enthralling spectacle to behold and an even more exciting one to take the reins of, God of War Ragnarok melds action and adventure together to create a new, unforgettable Norse saga. Impeccable writing, pitch-perfect performances, knockout action – it’s a complete work of art from top to bottom.

Much like its heroes, God of War: Ragnarök learns to love itself for what it truly is: gargantuan, excessive, and wonderfully absurd.

A beautiful world filled with things to discover, and a fitting close for Kratos’ viking adventure that only misses full marks thanks to a light touch opening half that takes a while to hit its stride.
