In our own God of War Ragnarok PS5 review, we awarded the game a rare 10/10 rating and concluded: "God of War Ragnarok is phenomenal. Even amongst PlayStation Studios' typically stellar output it's a showpiece — a masterfully crafted game that smashes expectations at almost every turn." The game launches for PS5, PS4 next week on 9th November 2022, so these incredibly high review scores only make the wait to play more agonising.
