God of War Ragnarök Review

God of War Ragnarök was released last week to rave reviews. In our own review, Jim said, “Kratos has come a long way since first flinging himself into the Aegean all those years ago.God of War, as a series, has come a long way too, pushing the boundaries of hack and slash action to their goar-soaked limits, then breaking free of a years-long slumber to become one of the biggest names in modern gaming. As our own winter approaches, God of War Ragnarok makes for the perfect adventure to lose yourself in.”
