Ragnarok is out at present, however we reviewed it final week, the place Zack had this to say:
Sure, the axe is cool. Positive, the fights are tons of enjoyable. And I positively loved exploring each nook and cranny of the big worlds you get to go to. However what stored me glued to my PS5 for practically 40 hours was the story of a son turning into a person and a father attempting to determine how he feels about that. I most likely might have loved this story a tad extra with about half as many puzzles and talent menus, besides, I discovered myself smiling, feeling glad, because the credit rolled. As I stated at the beginning, God of Conflict Ragnarök is superb.
