Violent death's were always a part of TR, but the next gen-shine has definetly kicked them up a notch. But yeah slight techincal spoiler, the last 3 "boss" characters require some manner of QTEs, at least on normal.

We'll discuss the later more once you wrap it up, but YEAHHHHHHHH, TR is Michael Bayish in a lot of areas.

I should do a Hard run. Once you start tricking Lara out the game becomes a tad broken.
