Rise of the Tomb Raider: 13 ways to die horribly (warning: graphic content)

Ever since Lara Croft first impaled herself on a bloody spike in the original Tomb Raider in 1996, her games have featured some stunning (and stunningly brutal) death animations. Rise of the Tomb Raider is no exception! So here are 13 of them, taken from animals, traps and mishaps. Please be warned that some of these are very nasty, and the game is rated PEGI 18, so don't complain if it gives you nightmares. And obviously there may be some mild spoilers here. You have been warned.
