Is there combat in The Lord of the Rings: Gollum?

In his video, Nerd of the Rings confirms that Gollum kills an orc in the demo, but it's not like other The Lord of the Rings games. There is no sword combat, and it takes Gollum a bit of time to kill the orc. Nerd of the Rings relays that LotR: Gollum feels true to the character of Gollum, so we shouldn't expect real combat to be in the game.

Can I finish The Lord of the Rings: Gollum without killing anyone?
