As you can see, it’s mostly been perfect scores. Even the outliers haven’t taken much of a chunk out of the game’s Metacritic score.

The few complaints people have mostly seem to revolve around the poor performance of the PS4 version of the game, and one or two minor gripes with puzzles and other obstacles feeling a bit obtuse.

Still, on the whole, God of War Ragnarok has come out very much in credit. You should try and get your hands on this game ASAP if you have any love for the franchise.
